Our school car park has become a dumping ground for old cars for some reason. It's important to get them removed quickly, as they are often in bad condition and can be dangerous for the kids and their families, as well as taking up a lot of our car parking spaces. We have a towing service that removes the cars from our car park quickly so that we can free up the spaces. This blog talks about the processing of getting cars towed off site and how to choose a towing service that is responsive to your needs as a school or business.
No one wants their vehicle getting damaged or getting into an accident. You might not be able to control the likelihood of this, and it is, therefore, important to have the contact information of a qualified and reputable towing company just in case you are unlucky.
You need to know various aspects that you should consider when choosing a towing company:
Towing at Any Time
This is crucial because a vehicle breakdown or an accident can occur at any time, be it day or night. You want the towing company to offer 24/7 towing services so that if you contact them at any time, you are guaranteed towing services. It can be quite bad if your vehicle breaks down at night and there is no one around to assist you or keep you safe. Additionally, if there is terrible weather, you might risk causing an accident with a vehicle stuck in the middle of the road for a long time.
The Type of Vehicle You Own
There is no point in hiring a towing company that cannot tow the kind of vehicle you own. Always ensure that the towing company has the correct equipment to tow your vehicle make and model.
Flatbed Towing Truck
This is a crucial piece of machinery/equipment for towing companies. A flatbed towing truck has the main advantage of transporting your vehicle as it is. It not only avoids the chances of an accident but also ensures no further damage occurs.
Proximity and Quick Response
You, of course, do not want to wait on the roadside for hours before getting assistance. When looking for a tow company, you need to evaluate the routes you frequently use, because this is where your vehicle is likely to break down. Identify a company that is near these routes and that can get to you fast. Consider rush hours and whether there might be traffic at particular times so that you choose a company that can get to you against traffic or without getting stuck in traffic.
Some towing companies offer additional services other than towing. Some may offer accident road clean-up, while others may offer repair services. Skim through the company's website, or better yet, inquire about additional services. You might get more than you think or expect for an affordable price. Instead of having to hire different specialists, you can have all the work done by one company.
