There Are Many Things to Consider When Hiring a Towing Company to Tow Your Vehicle.
The one thing you should be aware of when choosing a towing company is to make sure the drivers are professional and care about their job. Some companies are constantly on the hunt for new drivers because of high employee turnover. towing Pasadena CA
The problem with constantly having new drivers is that they never get enough experience, and that may end up costing you money for delays and possibly even damage to your vehicle.
I have come to the conclusion that if a company has a high turnover then that probably means they aren’t paid a fair wage and employees will leave for better pay elsewhere. It could also mean that the company isn’t caring enough to keep their employees for very long, so you have to wonder how much they will care about your vehicle.
Another item to consider is the actual equipment itself. You want your towing company to have trucks that are maintained and will actually make it to the intended destination.
A lot of trucks on the road won’t even make through a simple safety inspection.
If a towing company sends a truck that is terribly beaten up and the operator can’t seem to find all the pieces needed to carefully lift your car onto the bed or the hook, you may want to send him away and call another tow company. You won’t be wasting your time; you will be saving yourself a lot of heartache.
Choose your towing company wisely.
I remember an incident where a customer called us to report and bad mouth a local tow truck driver, working for one of the major towing companies, who had failed to tie down his muscle car properly resulting in thousands of dollars worth of damage to his car. Apparently the driver hit the brakes and the car slammed into the rack of the tow truck located behind the cab. That kind of carelessness is unacceptable and needless.
Needless to say, that individual is very picky now when it comes to who he chooses to tow his vehicles.
One way to ensure you get a driver with experience is to simply ask the question on the phone when you call. Just tell the person on the other end that you want someone with lots of experience. And don’t forget to request a bed truck instead of the hook lift.
Considering your vehicle is worth thousands of dollars, I don’t think it’s asking too much.
Use the best towing company you can find and you’ll be glad you did with the money you save!
To use the towing company with the largest ad in the phone book is not always the wisest thing you can do.
