The need to have your car towed is what may not happen to you frequently. I have been in a situation where I have had to call one of the local towing companies in Jacksonville when my vehicle broke down at the side of the road. I was almost stranded when a friend of mine told me about A-able Wrecker Service. With a phone call, they dispatched a truck to where I was standing by the side of my car.
They are among the most reliable companies that will offer you the best service you deserve, even if they don’t know you they end up treating you like family. The question is; with all the towing companies out there how do you distinguish a great company and a not so great company? Here’s how you can make sure you are dealing with someone honest and trustworthy in you time of need.
Know What You are Going to Be Billed It is important that you have all the charges explained to you. Hence, do not wait for the company to submit the final bill to you before you know all of the things you will be billed for. You should know how much a tow will cost, including service charge, hookup fees or mileage, impound and storage fees if your car has been towed by police. All these costs should be accounted for in the initial quotation. Another thing you can do is request everything in writing before you allow them to pick up your vehicle or truck.
Ask for References Request for names of at least a few customers the company has worked for in the past. You should look elsewhere, if they cannot. Any good towing company will supply you with the names of their past customers who were satisfied with the service they offered.
Are they Licensed, Bonded and Insured Don’t take things for granted that the company of your choice have all the three items mentioned above. Verify things for yourself. This is to make sure that if the company damages your vehicle they will be able to pay for it.
Ask Family, Friends, Colleagues and other People You Know Talk to your colleagues, friends, family and people you know. Ask them if they know any responsible and honest towing company. You can also check the phone book, but a referral from any source above will make sure you are dealing with an honest company that will not take advantage of you. Conclusion Knowing some local companies can be a big help to you if you are stranded by the side of the road. A trustworthy company that will handle things fairly and quickly and that makes a big difference in this situation. Follow this tip and experience the best service that will offer you value for your money. I recommend A-able Wrecker Service for all towing needs.
