At Greulich’s Automotive Service & Collision we understand choosing a towing service isn’t the kind of thing most of us stay up at night thinking about. When we need a tow, we call a company close by without much thought. If they do a good job for the right price, maybe we’ll call them again the next time around.
But this kind of trial-and-error method of choosing a towing service is inefficient at best and plain wrong at worst. Following a few simple tips can save you time and ultimately money.
Research ahead of time
- Doing research for things we may never need may seem like a waste of time. However, knowing a little about the local towing services will provide some comfort in the case that it wasn’t a waste of time. Find out which local companies are reputable and which ones to avoid.
- The cheapest companies aren’t always the best ones to choose. Often, the cheapest companies will cut corners with the safety of your car or won’t be available 24-hours a day.
- Find out what towing services are preferred by your insurance provider, and if they’ll take care of the insurance paperwork for you.
Auto body repair shops
- Often, auto body repair shops will suggest a specific towing company. If you have already found a reputable auto repair shop that you get all your work done at, the towing service that they suggest is likely to be a good one. Some may even roll the cost of towing into the cost of repairs, allowing you to consolidate bills.
Following these simple tips can help you find the right towing service for you and your car.
