Towing abandoned  cars

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.

Why Having Your Car Towed Home After Hours May Be Best

Bessie Adams

Finding out that your car won't run isn't good at any time of the day, but it's especially infuriating at night and on weekends, when repair shops are either not open or are open and crowded with people trying to get repairs done outside of working hours. If you're stuck away from home and hoping to get the car running as quickly as you can, you do have the ability to call a tow truck, which is a relief, but now you have another decision to make: where to have the car towed to. Some opt to have the car towed to a repair shop, leaving the car there with a note to the shop owner or making a phone call and leaving a message about what's going on. Others opt to have the car towed to their home, and this may actually be the best option for you if you're faced with a non-working car any time outside of repair shop hours.

You'd Have to Get Home From the Repair Shop Anyway

First, once you had the car left at a repair shop, you'd have to get home from the shop anyway. Unless that shop is located close to your home and along a bus line that is in operation at that time of night, you're facing an expensive cab or rideshare trip home. With an emergency tow that leaves your car at home, you can get some sleep and then figure out where to take it the next day. Remember, you can always call another tow truck to have it taken to your choice of repair shop.

You'll Be Able to Call Around to Find an Available Appointment

Once you're home and rested, you can call your regular repair shop to find out when they can take care of the car. If your regular shop is fully booked, then you can try others. If you had had your car towed directly to the shop overnight, they might not have had a chance to look at it until everyone else's car was done that day. Instead, from home, you can call other shops or just decide to leave the car there until your regular mechanic can take a look at it. Then you can arrange for towing to that shop.

You Won't Have to Lug Everything Home in the Car

Imagine if the car became nonoperational when it was full of groceries, laundry that you were bringing home from a laundromat, or another large amount of goods that you couldn't carry home yourself. If you have your car towed to a repair shop, you'll have to bring all those items home with you somehow. That would make it difficult to take a bus, too. Obviously, it's never a good time to be stuck with a bunch of groceries or other items, but if it happens later in the evening, it's particularly annoying. Have your car towed home, unload everything, and get some rest so you can deal with the issue the next day when you're more alert.
