When we think of car towing, we envision the triangular gantry with a hook. Most tow companies though are turning to the tilting flatbed truck to carry your vehicle to your choice of destinations. The flatbed truck is popular and there is less chance of damaging the vehicle than when engaging the traditional tow.
Types of Roadside Assistance Towing Companies Offer
Roadside services include jumping an obstinate dead battery, gas in those incidents when you didn’t quite make it to a station, water to combat overheating or a tire change. They usually show up with their tow truck if all attempts at the roadside assistance fail. But many tow companies are broadening their services, accommodating roadside service. Ever been shopping and on returning to your car you see your keys dangling in the ignition with the doors locked? Many tow services are providing car lockout services. Equipped to open doors and defeat all know vehicle doors they open the door for you and you can resume your journey and be on your way. Wrecking services include towing your car after an accident or removing that clunker out back.
Roadside Wrecker Services
Wrecker services are also used when the vehicle just dies and all roadside efforts end in defeat. Of course, tow companies are sometimes used in repossessions and many companies contract with the city, county and state law enforcement to provide wrecker services in clearing accidents and towing vehicles incident to arrest. One of the criteria needed to evaluate a company are reputation for honesty, quick response, reliability and expertise. You don’t want the bottom ripped from underneath your Beemer or Porsche. Large trucks and tractor-trailer rigs also have differing equipment and experience needs. Long distance truckers occasionally need the assistance of a wrecker when their equipment fails or breaks down.
Special circumstances call for special equipment or experience. A car over a steep embankment may be recovered better by a traditional tow truck verses a flatbed wrecker. A tow company must be equipped to handle recovery operations from over a cliff to vehicle immersion in lakes and rivers. Not only do they need to recover the vehicle but preserve evidence if there are criminal activities associated with the car.

Most tow drivers either have a special driver’s license for towing or a commercial driver’s license. The larger companies provide training, so their drivers can handle a broad range of assistance when responding to roadside service calls. The company is usually bonded or insured, as towing can be a highly libelous occupation, standing between the car owner and law enforcement. Many tow companies maintain their own impound yards and are required to provide security, particularly if they serve as the official police towing company. Tow, wrecking and roadside assistance make towing companies a community asset. They are needed from small towns to large urbanized cities.
