Speedy-Repo.com / Fraudulent Price Quote

Our company found itself in need of a Repo service when one of our independent contractors refused to turn over a company vehicle after we terminated his services. In my research of possible Repo companies, I found www.speedy-repo.com. I contacted them and spoke with Scott in regards to whether or not they could help us and what the price of their services would be. Scott told me on two separate occassions that the charge would only be about $200 to $600. After our second conversation, I contracted Speedy-Repo to get our company vehicle (a 2003 Dodge Ram) back. Over the course of 1 to 2 weeks, I spoke with our assigned "investigator" Tom Daniels several times in regards to leads on finding the vehicle. Speedy-Repo did find our vehicle, but when we received the invoice - it was for $3840.00. The invoice was from a company called I.C.U. Inc (they apparently own Speedy-Repo). And, they wouldn't release my vehicle to me until I paid by wire transfer. DO NOT do business with Speedy-Repo or I.C.U. Inc. unless you are prepared to pay $3000.00 or more to get your vehicle back. I firmly believe that Scott, the original person I spoke with, knowingly lied to me about the price of their services. They get you to contract with them, get your vehicle, and then refuse to even tell you where they are holding it until you pay whatever insane dollar amount that they choose. Again - BEWARE - IT'S A SCAM!!!

    I too hired ICU having a tough case. We are located in California. and had a skip move to Atlantic city with our MBZ S230 2006. I was able to find an adress. Mind you a good one on MLK Blvd, for this person. gave the case to ICU to handle. they sat on it for 2 months. then tell me the person moved. and had a confrintation while they had a moving truck there . and then 5 day later I get a call from. Jay From ICU. telling me. we got it. telling me that the subject moved 3 blocks away. We were very happy to hear this. until we got the invoice. 350 for repo. 120 for keys. which the debtor gave us . 90 for lock out. and 30 a day storage. and a $3, 716.00 skip fee. for a bill over 4k. I did some homework here. I called Atlantic police and spoke to a det. Found out. who actualy picked up the car. and were. and how. 1 block from our home. the subject still lives there. never had any contact. and it was a drive up just happend to be out in the open. their fee was 350. 10 free storage. then 15 a day. from there. They had no idea of our bill and fees. This guy does all the work. great job by the way. and he gets taken like we do. ? I am convinced that ICU knew from the beggining they would take us. I asked every time for updates and never got complete answers. as Per Rick@icu.com the reason is simple. they want total control. I am also in control of corespondence that tells me when we pay we will get the info we paid for. Would a good buisness hold info hostage. ? We want to know what we pay for. I will never use any company that associates themselves with ICU. The company I work for is a national company. with a huge invitory. needless to say. You indipendent guys need to wake up and insure that your not getting used too.
    RICHARD DUNBAR @ seekersog@hotmail.com if you have any question.
    I say when in doubt check it out. it's your money dont let someone beat you for it.

    We have done business with this company more than once and have always had a Fantastic outcome. The Staff has always been informative, very upfront and easy to work with. The fees are fair and reasonable for the quality of work we have received. I am astonished at waht has been written here. More than likely thes allegation were fabricated by a less successful reposession Company with an axe to grind.

    We have had very good success with ICU and have personally worked closely with some of the individuals mentioned, these claims are ridiculous.

    Thhis Company has been operating for several years and has executed Thousands of reposessions. Come on No body likes the Repo Man their not supposed to. Anyways ICU is a great asset to us very professional.

    Speedy Repo has been wonderful to work with. The rates are very reasonable and they always get the asset even when several other companies have tried already without success.

    Speedy Repo is highly reccomended by us and regardless of whatever false claims are made against them here will not change our opinion to detour us from continueing to use them frequently for all of our reposession needs.

    Speedy Repo is truly the BEST. And this isolated false claim does not fairly represent this Company

    Really confused by the complaints I have read. Our company has used Speedy Repo and Icu Inc. for many years with great results. Yes they charge for skip tracing but they also work contingent and never have charged this company a dime when a vehicle couldn't be located even after months of their time and effort. We have used many other companies that charge us close outs and in our opinion have never worked the case just looked for the easy close out money. We are of firm opinion that this company works hard for their fees and any vehicle they have recovered (almost all we have sent them) was well worth the cost compared to what we would lose in a charge off or pay our attorneys to take legal action

    Check out the Better Business Bureau. I.C.U., Inc. rated an F. I also had issues with this company. They literally held my boat hostage after quoting me $350 then faxing me an invoice for $4, 480.
    Check out /link removed/ and you will find several cases where I.C.U., Inc has scammed people with their repossessions, quoting one price then billing THOUSANDS more.

    PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

    ICU quoted me $350.00 for repossession. The bill came to $32, 250.00 - of which 31k was for skip tracing. Skip tracing costs between $20 to $120 tops. These guys are scam artists. They will pay for this. BTW, all the posts of people stating they had great outcomes are just employees posing. I am filing a federal suit class action, so if you can contact me to join in a larger settlement for damages email me at slumdogm2009 @ yahoo . com

    ICU, Rick Green and Don Hall (Who claims he is just a repo guy working for a few hundred) are all in it to scam the American public. THEY ARE ECONOMIC TERRORISTS and deserve to burn in hell. Sorry, just a bit emotional as I lost my 2007 AMG benz from these phuck heads.

    Shank above Or Ryan Shank is a slumdog liar as indicated in his own email address. There ar no crimes being committed except for the slander above.
    Actually ICU works on a contingent basis as clearly outlined in their agreements which by the way have to be signed prior to ICU accepting a case EVER. If you can not read that is no reason to make up lies about a Company that has work to it;s customers advantge for over 2 Decades. Really? Ryan grow up and take responsibility for you actions. And pay your bills you scammer...

    Wow, how can these guys still be in business? They are trying to screw me too. I found the truck and they are trying to charge me 5k to pick it up. I had them say the same things to me, they had all this time in skip traces, I placed a picture on craigslist and some one wrote me within the hour telling me they know right where it was, so we call and had ICU pick it up and then they demanded a ransom to pick it up. It's like "loan sharking".

    i agree. these people are the new wave of thiefs. they told me one price of $350 and charging me $2380. i sent them right to the car. my cars are equipted with gps units. these people are anti americans. if you even think about using them then you will pay the price for not listening to me. do not let this company live much longer. call your local law enforcement on these guys if you have been nailed by them. file a complaint. do not rest until justice is served. this is not what america stands for. in the end they will be judged by a higher person. he will show no mercy. as i said they are just down right thieves!!!

    Interested as a licensed repossessor in Nevada, when you payed the fees where were you cars located? Reason I ask is I have a client which used speedy repo/icu inc./repo-world one of there many bogus names and now they sent him a bill for $1800.00 after he gave them the location of the car. These people are not licensed in Nevada thats for sure. They sent him a condition report for unit that was signed by someone named Mel Thomas. If anybody has any info to where they picked up there cars after paying the ransom I would be greatful. You can email me at smallblocktuner@yahoo.com
