Hiring the Right Vehicle Towing Company – Tips

0 Comments 26 October 2015

Finding the right towing and emergency roadside assistance service may not be as easy as you think. Especially, if you have not done your research ahead of time. Once you are in need it is a good idea to already have a towing service provider in mind to ease the stress of your situation.

The market is flooded with these types of services, so how do you know which to choose? No two towing companies are created equal, which will make you want to do your research and homework upfront.

Charity Towing and Recovery offers a few tips on how to hire the right towing service.


Look for a company that specializes in the type of service you need, particularly one that has done towing in a similar situation. Consider asking your prospect company several questions before making up your mind. Before making a final decision, get to know how long the company has been operating. Towing companies with more than 10 years of experience are the right ones to choose based on experience alone.

Understanding your needs:

Gather a clear idea of what is wrong with your vehicle before contacting a towing company, whenever possible. This will allow the service provider the pertinent information that will be necessary to accurately accommodate your particular needs. Incorrect information may lead to delays in service, leaving you stranded on the roadside longer and unnecessarily.


While total fees may be difficult to determine upfront, you need to inquire about “typical” towing costs. Keep in mind that towing companies charge different fees for the services they deliver. Costs, associated with automobile towing services, are generally determined by the car type and the distance it will be towed. The fee may also increase if your car needs special towing. Consider asking upfront what the fee will be and how far they will tow your vehicle. Get quotes from several tow truck providers in advance to better determine any fees associated.

Ask Your Insurer for Recommendations:

You may be most comfortable asking your auto insurer to recommend a towing company to hire. Car insurance companies have long lists of reputable towing companies, so utilizing a company that has been recommended by your insurer may make it easier to get reimbursed if they have an agreement set up with them in advance.
