Just like in other industries, misconception prevails in the towing industry. Misconceptions are so strong that both customers/clients and towing service providers are suffering severely. Customers are not calling the service providers and trying to tow their vehicles themselves, leading to damages, and towing companies are not getting customers, leading to huge losses.
The companies try all the ways to keep their customers away from the misconceptions and convince them to use towing services for their betterment. But, the thing is customers get easily influenced by what others say instead of believing the service providers. They feel that it’s about their hard-earned money that might get wasted if they call a towing company.
We know you might have also believed in the misconceptions and stopped yourself from using towing services. But, from now on, we don’t want you to repeat your mistake. So, in this post, we will list some points that you should never believe about a towing company.
The towing company is expensive
Yes, this is something most people say and believe. According to them, the towing companies work with heavy tools, lift heavy vehicles, and others, so they charge high. And some people think that towing companies take advantage of the situation and charge higher.
Towing service is expensive but not always. The cost of the service depends on different factors like the size and weight of the vehicle, time of the day, risk involved, etc. If your vehicle is not heavy and can be towed without using complex tools, it will be an affordable towing service for you.
Regarding towing scams, you should work with a reputable towing service provider and discuss the cost before calling towers on the site to avoid this.
The towing company isn’t available when needed
Absolutely wrong. Most of the towing companies operate 24/7 because they know situations like this mostly happen at odd hours. The odd hours mean early in the morning or late at night. So, there is no way that the towing company will not be available when needed.
If you are still doubtful, check online or browse the website of the particular towing company to see if it offers affordable towing service 24/7. You shouldn’t stop after checking out one or two companies and believe that no one will come to help. According to us, you should check all the towing companies that are close to your location.
The towing company doesn’t tow large or unconventional vehicles
The question here is then what the towing company does. Moving a small vehicle to the nearest repair shop is pretty easy and even common people can do this, though it’s not recommended. And it’s because towing of any type is not safe if done without professionals and professional tools.
The fact is a towing company tows all types of vehicles, including large and unconventional vehicles. Sometimes, the company denies the service if it’s not equipped with the necessary tools. So, you should call the company and ask about services offered upfront instead of assuming.
If you don’t believe these points/misconceptions, we are sure you will prevent your vehicle from getting damaged.
