Unfortunately, some towing experts have a bad reputation. Despite the provision of an invaluable service during emergencies, towing is a service that many people love to hate. Such disdain is often spread by people that never experience emergency situations, or those that were unfortunate to encounter a poor towing company. With quite a few misconceptions, drivers who experience issues sometimes use towing as a last result and would rather try and take care of the problem themselves or call a friend/family member for aid. To help people feel more comfortable in relying on a dependable towing company that betters your safety, values your time, and provides efficient services, we at Highway Towing 30 would like the opportunity to dispel a few of the common misconceptions concerning towing professionals.

Are Towing Fees High?

The amount of money charged for services are among the top misconceptions. Though there are some bad companies that take advantage of misfortune, most towing experts charge fair prices, especially if you consider the supporting costs involved in the different services. The tow truck itself is a rather high operating expense, along with the distance traveled to the location of the vehicle. In order to stay in business, the company needs to be compensated. As breakdowns tend to happen at inopportune times and places, the drive for a tow truck can sometimes be long. Most towing companies only charge a modest fee when accounting for the running costs of their service though pricing can vary significantly because of these basic factors.

Is Towing the Only Roadside Service Offered?

Towing services are not the only service offered in most cases. Tow companies frequently provide far more services in addition to the towing of damaged vehicles. Roadside services include jump-starts, fuel/fluid deliveries, tire changes, and lockout assistance are among the extra services. The service menu is valuable, and more often than not, affordable and readily available when you need assistance.

Do Tow Truck Drivers Only Work in Rural Areas?

It is an overly gross belief that towing services are not available to those who need help on the rural roads. For those more difficult to reach locations, smaller regional towing companies are always available, however, the larger company based in many areas of the country can prove to be a challenge to get their assistance. Bear in mind that driving further away does increase the cost of the tow.

How Long Does it Take for a Tow Truck to Come?

Many people have this is a misconception since it can seem like waiting on the cable man to come to your aid after you call a tow service. Before getting services, it does not take hours. Generally, towing companies want to build a solid reputation and will be there in under an hour, depending on your location and the workload, however, it is only usually in rural spots or when the weather has made driving conditions hazardous that causes longer waits for tow truck services to arrive.
