How to Choose a Towing Company

Accidents and breakdowns can happen randomly, so don’t wait until one occurs to choose a towing company. You will be more at ease when you know who to contact in case of a roadside emergency. A quick search could give dozens of results, and you may need to look closely to select the right one for you. Fortunately, we have tips to help you pick the best tow truck company.

Research Tow Truck Services

The first thing you need to do is find a company that offers the services you may need. Some may only offer towing services for certain situations or types of vehicles.


Types of Services

Make a list of the companies that offer the services you think you might require. Some may only offer towing but no other roadside assistance. Make sure they can tow the type of vehicle you typically use.


24/7 Emergency Service

Unless you only drive during regular business hours, you’ll need a company that offers 24/7 emergency service. The last thing you want is to be stuck on the highway late at night and not know what company you need to call for help.


Service Areas

Each company should mention the areas they service. If you drive far distances, you may need to find two companies to be sure you can have help wherever you are.


Service Costs

Pricing can be hard to find because it can vary based on the location, time and type of vehicle. Some towing companies understand many calls come from people who haven’t done their research and charge higher prices because they know they can. That’s why it’s important to find estimated costs and compare them.


Ask About Their Trucks and Drivers

After you’ve narrowed your list down, you’ll want to know more about their trucks and drivers. Different types of tow trucks are available, and you’ll want to know what options your chosen businesses have. Some companies may only have one type of truck. You’ll also want to know that their drivers are experienced and professional and follow strict safety standards.


Check Reviews

The next step is finding out what other people have experienced with each company. Look at the review the company put on their website, but also remember to check Google, Facebook and any other place you can find reviews. Since you’re doing this before your accident or breakdown (hopefully), you’ll have time to look through numerous reviews.

Check good and bad testimonials, and remember to take both with a grain of salt. Anything that seems consistent across multiple reviews is something you should consider when choosing your towing company.
