FAQ: Towing & Tow Trucks


When you need a tow, you may understandably have some questions or concerns that you'd like to have addressed. Some car owners worry that getting towed may damage their vehicle cosmetically or mechanically. However, it's important to keep in mind that the towing industry has been around almost as long as there have been commuter cars and the towing process has been made increasingly safe and efficient over the decades. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about towing and tow trucks.

Is my vehicle at serious risk of damage while getting towed?

No, it is not. An experienced tow truck driver will make sure the right type of truck is used for the job and that the equipment is used in such a way that your vehicle will not be harmed. If your vehicle is being towed after an accident, it's important that cosmetic damage is accounted for so that it is clear that such damage didn't occur during the towing process.

Do tow truck drivers undergo specialized training?

Yes, all tow truck drivers are trained to expertly use all equipment and handle the most challenging tow situations. Certain programs, such as WreckMaster certifications, ensure that drivers are masters of their craft.

My car is lowered. Can it be towed?

Yes, lowered vehicles can usually be towed using standard methods. In certain situations, special accommodations can be made to ensure the safe towing of a lowered vehicle.

Is it okay to tow automatic transmissions with drive wheels on the ground?

Per manufacturers, this is typically okay for short distances at low speeds. However, if you're concerned about this, accommodations can be made to make you more comfortable with the towing process that is used for your car.

How much does towing cost?

This is going to depend on a number of different factors, such as: distance, vehicle type, vehicle operability, and if the situation is an emergency and/or requires extraction. The company can provide you with an accurate quote that allows you to make an informed decision about how to proceed.
