Best Towing Service Garland

Regardless of the vehicle or equipment, you operate, over time, wear will occur. As a motorist, your need for a towing service in Garland depends on how often you drive your car, the road conditions, and how often you conduct preventive maintenance on your vehicle. And as time passes and you rack up more and more miles on your vehicle, you will begin to notice that things aren’t operating as they were prior. Of course, you’ll want to do everything within your power to avoid having to call for a tow truck. However, there are times when a call for roadside assistance for wrecker service is warranted.

In many cases, a simple jump-start or gas delivery will solve the problem of the vehicle that is unable to move on its own power. But, when a battery boost doesn’t do the trick, you’ll need a reliable towing company to provide local towing. One reason needing a towing company in Garland strikes fear into the hearts of motorists is due to towing services charging extremely exorbitant towing fees. This can cause some motorists to attempt to fix their car on their own, or worse, ignore the problem altogether. Neither option is a good idea, because attempting to fix your car without proper tools and expertise may make the matter worse and cost you more in the long run. And, ignoring a vehicle problem will certainly make the matter worse and may even be detrimental to your safety and the safety of other motorists on the roads.

If you own a motorhome and only operate it occasionally there’s a good chance that it’s not receiving the proper preventative maintenance. When your motorhome falls into disrepair because it wasn’t maintained properly that’s a recipe for a motorhome breakdown. Rather than needing a tow for your RV, we suggest that you drive your motorhome monthly and take it to the shop on a timeline suggested by the RV manufacturer. Doing this one small thing can save you and your family, money, headache, and time when you decide to hit the open roads this summer.

Why Are Towing Fees So High?

Breaking Down Towing Service Fees

As we’ve already established, most motorists don’t like the idea of calling for a tow truck due to the fact that motorists don’t understand why towing fee rates are as high as they are. And that this misunderstanding can cause many motorists to choose not so safe alternative to call for a tow truck. To allay your concerns about the high price of towing, we’re going to first discuss why towing rates are perceived to be high, and why towing companies charge so much. Our hope is that you will understand the reason for the price of towing and therefore, cause you to think twice about making the decision to forgo a tow.

  1. Depending on the equipment and type of wrecker you purchase, a brand new wrecker can cost upwards of $90,000 dollars.
  2. To insure that wrecker, you will need at minimum 3 types of insurance, Commercial Liability, On-Hook, and Cargo insurance.
  3. And, depending on state requirements and the other entities the towing company contracts with, the minimums may be much higher than what’s required by the state. To insure this wrecker will cost about $12,000 dollars every year.
  4. The truck will need approximately $5000 worth of equipment.
  5. And the registration fees are $1200 per year.
  6. The towing company’s phones are answered by real live people called dispatchers who sit in an office that is rented for $2000 per month.
  7. These dispatchers must be paid a reasonable hourly wage, somewhere in the neighborhood of $12 dollars per hour.
  8. The tow truck operators who come to provide service in Garland must be trained thoroughly prior to being set free to provide service and must continue ongoing training every year.  The fees for this training range from $800 to $3000 dollars per year, per tow truck operator.
  9. And, of course, in order to retain valuable employees, the towing company must pay these young men and women a livable wage, which ranges from $12 dollars to $22 dollars per hour.
  10. In order to ensure that none of the tow trucks needs a tow truck while out helping stranded motorists, the towing company must provide regular maintenance and pay for any needed repairs. Depending on the age, mileage, and treatment of the tow truck, the costs range from $3000 dollars to $30000 per year.
  11. Of course, the towing company must also pay for fuel and other items for their trucks.
  12. There are also advertising costs, legal fees, and miscellaneous other expenses that occur with any business.

As you can see, the cost of operating a towing business is very high, and in order to have the ability to provide reliable towing services and be compliant with all state and federal guidelines, every towing company must charge rates that allow them to make a profit.  We love our customers and would do anything to help them while out on the roads, but if we didn’t make a profit we would not have the ability to do so.

When You Need A Tow Truck

Now that you have a firmer understanding of the reason why towing rates are as they are, now we would like to impress on you the times when you should call for a tow truck. In some circumstances, a reluctance to call a tow truck to solve your vehicle breakdown issue can be detrimental to your car and to your wallet. Dallas Towboys understands that finding a reputable towing company in Garland, Texas may be difficult. And, knowing a towing company that is willing to tow your car long distances if necessary is very valuable. So, before we get started discussing when it’s necessary to call for a tow truck, we want you to plug our phone number in your phone. Here it is 214-221-8697, give it the name “Towing.”

  1. You will need to call a towing company when you are involved in a car accident and your vehicle is not able to move on its own power. In some instances, law enforcement will allow you to remove your vehicle yourself, but in most cases, the removal of your vehicle from public property is a matter of public safety.
  2. There are many reasons why a car will not operate properly. Sometimes your car’s engine can become overheated and driving your car with an overheated engine can cause more damage and end up costing you more money in the long run. A car with an overheated engine will need a tow to a repair shop.
  3. If you are involved in a car accident that does not completely incapacitate your vehicle, you may still need to get it towed if it is dangerous to drive on the roadway.
  4. Any type of electrical system problem may cause your car not to start. It may be a dead battery, a faulty starter, or a bad alternator, and regardless of the issue, you will need to have your car towed by a reliable wrecker service.
  5. If your car does not have a spare tire and you have a flat tire, you will either need someone to fix the tire, or you’ll need a new tire. This means you’ll need to have your car towed to a repair shop.

When You Need Flatbed Towing

Now that you know when it’s necessary to call for a tow truck, you need to understand that there are different types of tow trucks and when you need flatbed towing, as opposed to a wrecker equipped with a wheel lift. While both types of tow trucks can tow any passenger vehicle on the road, sometimes it’s best to use a flatbed tow truck. Here’s when flatbed towing is necessary.

  1. When you need a piece of equipment, such as a forklift or a scissor lift, a flatbed tow truck is necessary to tow it because the wheels of these pieces of equipment are not meant for roadway travel.
  2. After a car accident that has demolished your vehicle and caused damage to the non-drive wheels, a flatbed tow truck makes it much easier to tow. However, a competent tow truck operator equipped with a wrecker with wheel-lift and dollies can tow the vehicle. But, a flatbed tow truck is preferred.
  3. A wrecker can tow long distances, but for a vehicle that needs to be towed a long distance, it is best to use a flatbed tow truck, as the vehicle can be secured using an eight-point tie-down system.
