How to Hire a Towing Company 

Whether you’ve had a breakdown or a wreck, there are things you should check out before calling a towing company. If you are on an accident and needs to get your vehicle towed, you will not have any choice but to call someone professional. In one-car accidents, slide-offs, breakdowns and engine troubles, getting the vehicle towed is a less stressful experience especially if you have done research about towing companies. Check out the guidelines below to know how to hire the best Maricopa Towing company.

Towing Company 

1. Eligibility of Company 

Like any other company, eligibility and reputation really matters especially if you’re looking for a company who will deal with your car. Call companies and ask for details on prices. Ask for references and past clients who have experiences in the service. Once you’ve found a good company, ask them for a list of their past clients so you can interview them about their experiences with the company. With this kind of research, you will find an eligible company who can give you the services you needed.

2. Don’t Trust a Tow Truck that Just Shows Up 

If you’re involved in breakdowns or slide-offs, you will not have much choice on what towing company is dispatched by the emergency service, because it’s not an ordinary emergency. If your vehicle broke down, a tow truck might just show up unannounced and offers you a service. The eligible companies will display an ID on their truck and a license. If the tow truck doesn’t have those, then they may not be eligible to do the work. The tow truck should be registered and insured so no matter what happens, your vehicle is ensured.

3. Take a Pic of Your Car

Snap a picture of your vehicle’s condition before the towing company arrives. This way, you documented the condition of your vehicle just in case an unexplained or unexpected damage happen on the way to your vehicle’s destination.

4. Sign Paperwork Wisely

When you sign the paperwork, make sure you read everything because the company might add up something to the agreed conditions that you don’t agree with. To avoid additional charges without your knowledge, place your signature nearby the agreed fee.

5. Ask for Receipt

Of course, to make the transaction legit, ask for the copy of your invoice and receipt. This is to ensure that you only paid to the charges you have agreed on.

6. Ask About Insurance 

If you got involved in an accident, the insurance policy might include the towing. There are insurance companies who have a list of towing companies they can dispatch when you need their services.

Those are the simple things you should know if you’re hiring a towing company especially in times of accidents or breakdowns. Remember that not all tow service providers are honest. Make sure to call the one who will take responsibility of your car while they tow it. Research about the services they provide, the fees, and the coverage of insurance.
