What to Look for in a Towing Company
In towing service do you know what to search for? My guess is that you don’t give much thought to that question, or it’s the answer, unless you are in immediate need of one. Most of us hope our cars don’t disappoint us. We pray we never need a vehicle with tow. It is a burden that all of us, or maybe any of us, do not like to worry about.
I hope you’re among the lucky few who ‘re never in need of towing services. I’ve had more than one experience with towing companies and towing truck drivers unfortunately. While I don’t own a towing business myself, while selecting a service to tow your car or truck, I do have some suggestions on what you may like to do.
Second, is the phone answered at all as you call? Believe it or not, several companies intermittently answer the phones. Is the individual on the other end of the line competent and informed on what you’ll need with your situations in particular?
Will the driver be there shortly alongside the tow truck? So if they can’t manage it right away you’re given an approximate date of arrival? They will be truthful about the waiting period, even though they can not meet you instantly. This allows you to plan for their arrival and, if they are not there as quickly as you feel they should be, it can also free your mind of concern. This also helps you to alert any officers stopping to see if you need assistance with a tow truck on the road.
Is the driver qualified as he climbs into the tow truck? Will he work on trust? Will he or she satisfy any and all questions you might have? You don’t want anyone to put it on to the truck when it comes to the car, that doesn’t know what they are doing. This can be expensive. You want to make sure the drivers are trustworthy and qualified.
Is the tow truck itself and the equipment in good shape? I wouldn’t want my vehicle towed by a truck that looks like it’s about to fall apart. I wouldn’t want a very old, worn-out tow truck carrying my truck or car. I don’t say it’s got to be brand new but it’s got to be in good shape. A company that takes after its own cars is more apt to take good care of yours.
