Best Quality Towing Companies in USA

Almost everybody has experienced the misfortune of a vehicle breaking down. It tends to happen when you least expect it, and it is not at all fun to deal with. The normal response to these situations, mainly if you are on the road, is to call a towing service to take your vehicle to a repair shop. Other times to consider contacting an automotive towing company:

Keys Locked. A fairly common incidence, where the 1st instinct is to call a spouse or family member to bring a spare. However, a spare key is not always accessible, and a good towing company can generally respond in minutes with the tools required to fast unlock a vehicle.

Jump-Start. In these situations, a person does not need to go through the uncomfortable and potentially unsafe process of trying to solicit a jump-start from a stranger, nor do they need to walk miles to get fuel from the near gas station. Towing companies can usually fix these issues within minutes.

Tire Changing. Often times, switching out a flat tire for an extra tire is not as easy as one would think, and can be dangerous if on the side of a busy road. Calling a towing company is often the quickest and safest way to have an extra tire installed.

Semi Truck Towing. Semi Truck It's not always passenger vehicles that need help on the roadways. Some Towing Companies are ready to handle semi truck and trailer towing and recovery. There may even be more serious issues where a crane is essential to extract a large semi truck.

Load Shifting. A well ready towing service should also have the ability to realign and restack an uneven load being carried by a semi truck. 

Underwater Recovery. Not all breakdown and accidents happen on the road. A well prepared towing service will be able to reach your vehicle wherever it may have ended up.

Vehicle Auctions. Infrequently, these companies will come across vehicles that have been abandoned and need to be removed. If a person is in the market for a new vehicle, these towing auctions may be a huge place to buy at very low cost.

City rethinking road full plan

City roads officials are re-considering whether to reduce towing cars from the street cleaning plan this year.
Andre Chabot over concerns from Calgarians that street cleaning won’t be extremely effective in the wake of a $700,000 cut to the roads department budget, acting transport GM Doug Morgan said re-introducing towing is one option being looked at.

Surely we have gone back and had a hard look at the cut to spring cleaning, said Morgan. We have had a look at how we can lessen the crash and one of the items that we discussed was maybe putting the towing back in to ensure that we have as much chance for that first pass to be effective.

Officials said last week that along with not towing cars out of the way as has been finished in years past crews will only make one pass of each neigh boyhood and not work overtime this year as part of cost saving actions. Mayor Naheed Nenshi called the decision to take the entire $700,000 cut from the spring street cleaning budget, a lot too much.

What I have heard from a lot of citizens is it’s probably a step too far, he said. I know that the roads are re-thinking their plan, seeing what they can do, in exacting they are looking at reinstate the towing so that the 1st pass you can get the full road clean and you do not have to worry about parked cars.

Nenshi said he will sit down with roads official and expects to have a decision before the next council meeting April 28.Chabot said the decision to find savings in Spring Street clear out is possibly a way of managers pushing back against the cuts. You have got to doubt sometimes when you see motherhood and apple pie stuff being future as part of a global cut. he said.

At the end of the day, I think there is enough suppleness within the budget for them to do the job we asked them to do. Morgan said it will cost $135,000 to do the towing, with $65,000 of that probable to be recovered through ticketing cars they move.

According to police, the arrests were the conclusion of an investigation that began in December. Troopers said they observed and identified individuals buying and selling heroin at the towing service.

In March 2014, in secret troopers began making controlled purchases of heroin, police said in a statement. During the inquiry, numerous customers who purchased heroin from the business were identified along with the sources of the heroin.

Warrants served in Centre and Clearfield counties at the two properties netted heroin, drug things and about $21,000 in cash.

Increased in towing and related services fees

Services Fees for city towing and other related wreckers just got more luxurious for residents, in a move that more closely mirrors Killeen’s towing fee increases.

Copperas Cove City Council meeting, Mike Heintzelman, deputy chief of police, told council members the wrecker services on the city’s rotation list complained that increased fees from the Texas Department of license and Regulations made doing business at present rates difficult.

The Copperas Cove Police Department uses seven wrecker businesses to assist with accident cleanups, elimination vehicles due to arrest, and for parking violation and other circumstances necessary by police.

Code of Ordinances Sec. 19-66 controls the maximum fees wrecker services can charge, and that has not changed for close to a decade. The more costs to businesses come from having to cover costs related to increase operational licenses, training costs, drug testing and other staff-related fixed cost.

The wrecking tow service industry has undergone major changes, Heitzelman said. Will look just like what the city of Killeen approved 2 months ago. Some towing companies there, too, had to adjust rates to keep up.

Phil Egbert, owner of Phil’s Paint and Body, said most people do not understand what wrecker drivers had to face when on a service call.

Sometimes we face angry or drunk customers and we have to call the cops for help. It’s not always easy. And all those new fees, they add up. Even my office staff is now requisite to be licensed and they’ are not even driving.

Killeen’s new city ordinance increase basic tow fees to $150 and adds a $50 flat-bed fee.
The Copperas Cove council unanimously approved a similar schedule where towing services for collision and no collisions reasons are now $150.

The hourly fee extra to other charges after the first hour of service is now $80; using a dolly or flatbed will cost $50, and for up righting a vehicle, it will cost $50. Mileage fees jumped from $2 to $3 per mile.

Mid-Iowa wins towing service added new contract

A new towing company will be responding whenever Fort Dodge police officers need a vehicle haul away.
The City Council on Monday hired Mid-Iowa Towing, of Fort Dodge, to give that service for the next 2 years. That company will replace Ponderosa Towing, of Fort Dodge, which has provided that service for about 20 years under a series of contracts with the city.

The current 2-year contract expires this year. After receiving proposals from both companies, Police Department leaders gave each one a numerical grade based on contractual service costs, towing tackle and capability, freelancer everyday jobs, storage services and abandoned vehicle disposal method. Mid-Iowa Towing received a score of 90, while Ponderosa Towing received a score of 85.

However, Police Chief Tim Carmody recommended that Ponderosa Towing receive a new 2-year contract based in part on the city's long record with that company. That advice came before the council on Feb. 24, but the elected officials took no action at that time.

Councilmen Dave Flattery and Jeffrey Halter both said that Mid-Iowa Towing received a higher numerical score than Ponderosa Towing. Halter added that the fees of Mid-Iowa Towing are in many cases lower than those of Ponderosa Towing. 

Those prices are paid by the owners of the vehicles that are towed. Councilman Terry Moehnke prepared a multi-page detailed summary of all towing companies’ fees, which shows the differences in prices.

The cost of towing a drive vehicle is one area in which the companies differ.

Mid-Iowa Towing will charge $40 for that job. Ponderosa Towing would charge $65

This includes a $40 Basic towing fee and $25For the use of dollies needed to lift one set of the vehicle's wheels off the ground.
