It’s always better to be safe than sorry. When it comes to your home and cars, for instance, buying home and auto insurance, or or having a savings account for unexpected emergencies. You should always be prepared and expect the unexpected. That’s why, when it comes to vehicle breakdowns, it’s a good idea to have the number of a local towing service saved just in case.
A local towing service is like having insurance, but only for that moment. You’ll only be paying for the service you get when you call them for help. And when you do call for their help, you’ll be protecting yourself and your vehicle by having professionals handle the situation for you.
Be sure to find a local towing service that provides:
One of the most important aspects of towing services is timing. The time it takes for a tow truck to get to a customer is a big part of overall service. Additionally, the hours during which a towing company’s services are available are another important aspect.
You never really know when your vehicle will break down. Even though your car warning lights might be on, you can never know exactly when and where your car will break down. You could end up getting stuck on the highway in the middle of rush hour, or you might get stranded on quiet streets at 3 in the morning.
These situations can be quite frustrating, so it’s always good to know that a reliable towing service is available to help at any time of day (or night). MR Towing, for example, operates 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. You simply call us when you need our help and we’ll get to you in a heartbeat. That’s our job.
Instead of calling a friend who may not be able to help, call MR Towing and get the help you need in a timely manner. A reliable towing service will be able to provide timely and excellent service, no matter the time of day. Simply save our contact information in your phone and give us a call when you need us; we’ll be ready to help immediately.
Despite what you might think, not all towing companies offer long-distance towing services. There’s always the chance that you could get stuck in an area far from any homes or business, leaving with no avenue for help, which probably means that you’re also far from a repair shop. You don’t have to worry, though! Just call MR Towing Services and we’ll be on our way to help you.

Whether you’re stuck in the city or the outskirts, we’ll be there to help.

It’s not just sedans and other everyday vehicles that need towing; there are also box trucks, RVs, and even tractors. The latter three are the most difficult to tow because they’re quite large and are usually rented.
For example, people tend to rent U-Hauls for moving purposes or RVs for family vacations. Having such vehicles break down can be quite the headache. If you are renting such a vehicle, you should probably call the company you rented from first. They might have their own policy for towing their vehicles, so they might be able to handle it.
If they tell you that you’re own, give MR Towing Services a call! We have the equipment available to tow unusually large vehicles. We’ll make sure that the vehicle has been properly secured before proceeding to your desired destination. When it comes to RVs or tractors, we have the special equipment to have those vehicles towed as well.
It’s all about finding a reliable towing service near you! We can tow anything with wheels. Our team is prepared to help you, regardless of what type of vehicle you have.
We’ve been going on and on about towing services, but what about when you need help on the spot?
Vehicles can stop working and become unable to be driven for all kinds of reasons. Some things can only be resolved by going to a repair shop, while others can be fixed on the spot.
Some examples of such issues would be dead car batteries, flat tires and car lockouts. Jump starts aren’t that difficult of an issue to solve, but they do require quite a bit of care to carry out and two vehicles. You should make sure that whoever is helping you knows what they’re doing, or else you could just make things worse.
MR Towing Services always have jumper cables on hand. Plus, since we’re available 24/7, we can help you when others can’t. Most people passing by probably won’t stop to help jump start your vehicle. It’s also risky to rely on help from someone you don’t know. Instead, trust the professionals at MR Towing to help jump start your vehicle.
The same can be said about getting flat tires or being locked out. You can replace a flat tire on your own, but if you’ve never learned how to, you might need some professional help. There’s a lot more that goes into changing a flat tire than you might think. Not only do you have to pay close attention and carry out the proper steps, but you also have to have the proper tools on hand.
If you don’t know how to change your tires or don’t have the right equipment, call MR Towing Services. We’ll help you with your spare tire and have you on your way in no time. Oh, and if you lock yourself out of your car, we can unlock it for you and have you back on the road as soon as possible.
Don’t Undervalue the Importance of Outstanding Customer Service
Local towing companies offer many different types of services, but there’s no better service than customer service. Maybe you’ve never experienced a vehicle break down, and maybe you never will. But if you have, you probably remember the whole experience being inconvenient and stressful. But we hope that you received great customer service that day if you did seek professional towing.
Naturally, drivers will already be irritated and stressed when their vehicle breaks down. All sorts of things start crossing their minds, like damages, safety, possible repair costs, a disrupted schedule, insurance, etc.
When you’re already so stressed out, wouldn’t you like for your towing company to be as helpful and cooperative as possible?
Our representatives are trained to tow, but they also provide incredible customer service. When you call us, we’ll first make sure that you’re okay and then give you steps to take to ensure your safety while we send a tow truck to assist you, all while staying on the phone with you for as long as you need.
In the end, we understand that customers are probably not in a good mood when we get a call from them. Once we get to your location, we’ll give you the rundown on how we’ll be securing your vehicle to our truck before we tow it. We’ll also confirm the details of where you want your vehicle to be towed while we’re on-site.
Ultimately, our goal is for our customers to get their vehicles towed safely, while also ensuring a smooth process.
While you’re waiting for the tow truck…
There aresome safety prcautions you should take while waiting for your tow truck to arrive. First of all, get out of the way of traffic (if possible). If you notice a flat tire or notice your car giving you problems, turn onto the shoulder (if on the highway) or into a nearby parking lot.
Then, turn your hazard lights on so that oncoming vehicles are made aware of the breakdown. Depening on where you are, it’s probably a good idea to exit your vehicle. Keep it in sight, but exit it in case another vehicle loses control or in case your vehicle catches fire.
You can also lay out triangle reflectors or road flares if you happen to have them. This is especially helpful if your vehicle stalls on either side of a hill. Place these signals some 50-60 feet from your car.
When do you make the call to a towing company?
Ideally, you would call the tow company after you pull over and flip your hazards on. You don’t want to put the call off for too long, because the longer you wait to call, the longer it will take for the tow truck to be dispatched.
As we mentioned earlier, the representative you speak with over the phone will stay on the line with you for as long as you need until the tow truck arrives.
