In Car Safety Tips by Phoenix Towing Service8 Comments

If you have ever been involved in a car accident, or your vehicle has simply broken down in any location, you will know the hassle of finding a good towing company to help you move your vehicle to your garage, or home. The thing is, people don’t take the time to provide themselves with a good, genuine towing companies number before leaving the home, or even leaving a number in the car to have on standby. We know that how frustrating it can be to have to call a auto towing company. However, sometimes roadside assistance is inevitable.

Not all towing companies are formed alike. Though it is not a big task contacting a towing company, finding a truthful and efficient one from the many towing services available can be difficult and time consuming. Nobody wants to have car trouble. How you spend your time waiting for the tow truck can become important. First of all, keep your head clear so that you will be able to explain exactly what happened. This can help the tow truck operator and the body shop more easily assess your vehicle’s condition.

Now we can see some tips to selecting a good towing company.

  • It is very imperative for the protection and well-being of both you and your car that you make the conclusion of which auto towing company you would prefer to use before you really need to call them. Doing the research and making a decision now will save you cash, time and headaches afterward.
  • You can use the help of the internet, or ask friends and family for suggestions. It is always better to use recommendations from people you trust, as you can frequently trust their recommendations. In addition to this you can get an idea of the services best avoiding.
  • Ask friends and relatives what auto towing company they desire to use. If a relative or friend has used a company that they are not happy with, they will inform you. Friends and family also are very swift to let you know if they are happy with the service that they have received from a particular company.
  • A good place to start your search is by calling your auto insurance agent, they will be able to tell you the companies that they prefer to work with.
  • Also find out the distance they are willing to tow your vehicle and if you have to pay for their services upfront or if your insurance company will be paying for the towing services.
  • Choose towing companies that are open 24/7 and offer roadside support. They also proffer additional towing services like changing of tires and jump starting your vehicle.

If you choose an unpaid to tow your vehicle, it is a possibility that you could need more clash work or even perfunctory work after the tug. There are so many things that may happen to you while on the road. In addition to pricing, you will want to look at the towing companies status with other clients. Read reviews, testimonials, and check with friends or family to find out what the service is really like you may meet with some minor mishaps like a flat tire, the sliding of your car into a ditch, running out of fuel when you least expect it or your battery running out. Whenever you encounter such situations, the first thing that enters your mind is to get out of these situations with the help of an efficient tow service.


  1. I agree, your auto insurance agent is sure to know quite a few towing services in your area that you can sign up with. After all, it is very unlikely that you are going to be the first person to call them with that question. In fact, it is far more likely that the insurance company you get your auto coverage from already has a comprehensive list of which towing services accept their coverage.

  2. I like how you say that you want to check with your auto insurance company for a list of towing companies. It would make sense that a good insurance company would have a relationship with several reliable towing services. It would also be smart to find a towing company before you actually need it in order to be able to do more research on them.

  3. A good friend of mine recently had to call a tow truck for her car on short notice, so I thought I would do some research to better prepare me for if that ever is to happen to me. It is so true that asking family or friends for suggestions is always the most reliable way to go because you can frequently trust their recommendations. It seems like making sure you know about a towing company ahead of time, the more you’ll be able to rely on them if the time comes. Thank you for the helpful information!

  4. Thanks for suggesting to find a towing company that is open 24/7. It’s impossible to tell when you will need their services, so you need to be prepared in case of an emergency. Along with that, you might want to check what their hours are like during holidays just to make sure they are open. Doing this would minimize any chance of you being stuck on the side of the road searching for a towing company during an emergency in my opinion.

  5. Thanks for going over some tips for people who are choosing a towing service. I’m glad that you mentioned to do some research before making a decision. Like you said, it’s good to know what you want from a company before you actually need them. Plus, having that plan in advance will help you feel better about any emergency situation that comes up. Definitely sounds worthwhile to maybe meet them when you can to introduce yourself and learn more about their company.

  6. Called you guys for a tow a week or so ago. Really thankful for your fast and professional service. If you need a tow in Phoenix, this company is it. Keep up the good work.

  7. I was glad to see that you mentioned choosing a towing company that is open 24/7. The last thing you want to do is choose a towing company that closes at 5 pm. What are you going to do when you are stranded at 1 am and have nobody to call? I remember this once happened to my aunt on her way home from California. I really appreciated this information and I’ll be sure to use this information while choosing my towing company!
