What do you say when you call a tow company?

A description of the vehicle, including make, model and color. The reason for the towing (e.g., the vehicle is not working, it was involved in an accident, etc.). When you witness an accident, you can report it by calling *4141 from a mobile phone or 310-4141 from any other phone. As soon as the incident is reported, it will be sent to the appropriate authorities at the scene.

Your insurance policy information is another thing a towing company might ask you. This is to help them determine the payment method you'll choose or the type of coverage you have. Some of the things about your insurance policy that you should know are your policy number, type of coverage, payment information, and so on. The Towing Bill of Rights educates and protects drivers from the high-pressure sales tactics often used by unethical towing companies. The exclusive rates and descriptions of the towing service are included in the list of rates (PDF 146 Kb) established by the Ministry.

In a previous post, we explained why you should prefer a professional towing service instead of doing it yourself. I haven't called the tow truck company yet because towing your car is horrible and it's not very clear if that line is reserved. You are required to use the services of the designated towing company for the area where you break down or have an accident. If the towing company is excessively busy, the response time may be extended for longer towing distances.

When you choose to take your car to a mechanic, you save yourself the additional cost of towing your car back from your house to the mechanic. Towing services can come at a high price, so calling one when you don't need one can mean a lot of money out of your pocket. You can select the towing service of your choice as soon as your vehicle has been removed from the exclusive coverage area. It's important to note that if you call a tow truck, you'll be responsible for paying towing fees as well as potential storage fees.
