Afraid to Call A Tow Truck Because of Costs? Why You Can't Afford Not to Call A Towing Company

June 24, 2015

Whether your car broke down or has been involved in a traffic accident, calling a tow truck is usually your next step. While you may be worried about the cost, calling a professional tow service to get your car is not only the best thing when it comes to your safety, but also when it comes to the health and the maintenance of your vehicle. Before you try to take care of the problem yourself, look into affordable towing options.

Accidents Happen

If your vehicle has been in an accident, it is important to call a tow truck right away so that your car can be removed from the road and prevent it from causing traffic to back up. A tow truck should be called in any kind of accident even if the car runs, because until the car is checked, there is no way to know if it is safe for you to continue driving it. You can also cause more damage to the car by driving it which will result in more costly repairs.  

Broken Down

You should also call a tow truck in the event your car breaks down. Even if you eventually get your car to restart it is still wise to contact a tow service to bring your vehicle to a repair shop as soon as possible. By attempting to drive the car, you may end up breaking down again or causing more damage to the car, thereby turning a simple repair into an extremely costly expense. If the second breakdown was to occur in traffic, it could also result in an accident.

Avoid Fines

It is important to always remember to call a licensed towing company even if you are simply pulling your vehicle out of a ditch. Attempting to do this in an unlicensed vehicle can result in a fine depending on the location and laws of the state. You may also severely damage your car during the attempt without having the proper equipment.

Focus on Savings, Not on Cost

When you are in need of a tow truck don’t focus on what the tow itself will cost. Find a company that offers affordable towing and think about the money you will save by having your car properly transported to its destination.
