Most drivers can say that they’ve experienced car trouble at the most unexpected and inconvenient of times and places. Imagine a vehicle stalling in front of an intersection right when the light turns green. The inconvenience and stress you’d feel while attempting to restart the vehicle is palpable. Most times, vehicles just stall without warning. In the event that your vehicle stalls in the middle of the road, MR Towing’s medium truck towing service in and around the Plano, TX area can help .
What to expect from reliable towing services
After your car breaks down, you should immediately contact a towing service. The defining factor among towing companies, response time, could mean the difference between a long waiting period and mediocre service and the prompt resumption of normal vehicle function. When you make a call requesting towing services, a reliable towing company will receive the call promptly and respond by sending out the right staff with proper equipment in a swift and professional manner.
Unreliable towing services
In some cases, towing companies take forever to receive calls and, when they finally do, the office attendant isn’t prompt in understanding and responding to the situation. They take the situation so lightly – even forgetting to provide instructions to dispatch a tow truck to help you. The prolonged delay exposes you to on-road dangers for a longer period of time.
When you’ve been involved in an accident, a medium truck towing service may be needed to tow the vehicle to a mechanic’s garage for damage assessment. Quality towing companies provide quick and professional service— arriving at the scene on time, with proper support kits, equipment and staff. They also provide additional safety by helping to guide other drivers around your vehicle while hooking your vehicle up.
Some towing services don’t take safety precautions into consideration. In such cases, the tow truck sent out is even in worse condition than the stalled vehicle— meaning that it’s also prone to breaking down. In the event that the tow truck breaks down, it might cost you valuable time as the towing company staff try to fix their own truck instead of towing your vehicle.
When the towing company sends out a tow truck, the accident location is known. With unreliable towing services, the chances of them arriving at the scene on time is highly unlikely. Upon reaching the stalled vehicle, they probably won’t be properly equipped to tow it. Perhaps the towing gear is faulty, hence making moving the already stalled vehicle even more risky and dangerous. The manner in which the stalled vehicle is towed says quite a bit about the towing company. Reliable towing companies always have a checklist of equipment needed and procedures to be followed while towing.
Checking for reliable towing
Reliable towing firms have trucks with strong winches used to tug the stalled vehicle up. They should be strong enough to support the weight of the vehicle being towed. In inclement weather, they can even dispatch two tow trucks at a time.
Towing costs can high, hence, they’re usually included in the break-down coverage of insurance policies. Insurance companies only deal with towing companies with experience and good reputations. Doing a simple check with the insurance companies will tell you if a towing company is registered with them or not. In the event non-registered towing services are used, you’ll probably have to pay out of pocket. Consider dealing with a medium truck towing service like MR Towing in Plano, TX that has a track record in quality services.
