Great Scottsdale Arizona Towing Companies

The next category of towing we will call great towing companies. We will not get into to much detail here about great towing companies because we have entire other blog strictly about what makes a great towing company. With in that blog post you will also find information regarding towing rates, and what type of service you can expect from the great towing companies.

Luxury Towing Companies In Scottsdale, Arizona

If you own a luxury vehicle you are going to want to pay the extra expense to have your towing services performed by certified towing specialist. While most companies offer high quality towing services, many companies will not provide towing on luxury vehicles. Not because they are not equipped to get the job done, more because they do not want the liability. Towing companies are required by law to carry a state minimum amount of coverage, and honestly that minimum amount would probably not cover the majority of MAJOR Claims. This is why it is important to ask the company how much “on hook” coverage they have. Towing companies that regularly tow higher end luxury vehicle will carry, $100k to $300k on hook coverage.

Scottsdale, Arizona Towing Wait Times

For economy towing service you may need to call hours in advance. This is because in order to get the cheapest rates possible you need to give a 3-5 hour window for pick up. The cheaper towing companies often time have a longer wait time because they will take calls by location vs first come first serve. Meaning if another call comes in after you, that happens to be along the way of the current call, they will move that call ahead of yours. It’s how the companies can get the most bang for their buck. Companies that operate on a first come first serve system tend to be higher priced because you can expect a much shorter wait time.

 

Location, Location, Location 

Another factor that plays heavily into Scottsdale towing wait time is the location. If your pick up location is centrally located you should have no problem getting towing service in about 30-45 mins. Something worth noting regarding your pick up location is the parking-lot or street that you are being picked up from. The height of parking garages can limit the type of tow trucks that can fit. You can find the clearance hight at the entrances and exits of most parking garages. Towing companies that service those areas should also be familiar with the heights of the local garages.

Wait Time Vs Price

The decision to wait for a tow or pay a premium for fast quality service is up to you. Understanding how towing service in Scottsdale works will give you the best chance of making the correct choice. For additional information about Scottsdale towing services please check out our blog.

Best Towing Company Practices

What Makes A Great Towing Company?

At some point in your life your car is going to break down on you, or need towing service. When this happens you are also going to need a reliable towing company.  So here are a few quick tips to find the best towing company available. We hope that by the end of the article you have a better understanding of towing companies as well as what to expect out of the very best companies.

Highly  Reviewed Towing Company

If you have a friend of a friend who owns a towing company that you can trust then give them a call.  Your second best bet is to hop onto google and search for one. If you know the part of town you are in your search phrase should include that location. For example best towing company in Phoenix would be a great search phrase to find a tow truck in Phoenix. If you are not familiar with the exact area you can always try towing service near me. The google three pack should pull up and you can choose from the highest rated towing companies close to you. Click here to see our latest 5 star reviews.

Courteous  Dispatch

When calling for towing, the dispatcher sets the tone for the rest of the service. The dispatcher should be helpful, communicate clearly, and provide you with a transparent towing service price, as well as an honest time frame for pick up. The best companies now offer live, up to date tracking of where your tow truck is and what is his realistic eta. We use a cloud based software  that is very similar to Uber or Lyft.

 

Transparent Pricing

Transparent pricing takes honesty from both the towing company and the customer. In order to give you the exact price it is important for dispatch to ask you some important questions. These questions include your pick up and drop off locations, the type of car, and the condition of the car. While most dispatchers are trained to ask all of the right questions sometimes there are circumstances that are unforeseen. So make sure to let the towing company dispatch know about any additional information needed to complete the call. Check out this link to our article about towing rates.

 

Timely Service

The best towing companies are HONEST. Honest about pricing and honest about the estimated arrival time. Generally speaking at 15-30 minute window is best to give the company. Imagine the driver has your car on his deck, Im sure you would not want him rushing to unload your car so he can get to the next client on time. Tow truck drivers are trained to work hard and fast, but sometimes traffic and extenuating circumstances can cause a delay. Patience is always appreciated.

 

Safe Towing Practices

Finally the best companies always put safety first.  There are a few things that you can do to ensure that the tow is completed quickly and safely. First, always listen to the driver. Drivers are taught to scan the scene of any hazards and to develop a plan to property secure the vehicle. Do NOT run toward the truck to talk to the driver, he or she will exit the tow truck when they are ready. Second, when exiting your vehicle make sure that your vehicle is in park, and the parking brake is on. The tow truck driver will place your car into neutral if necessary. Third, watch your step while entering the tow truck. Many of the tow trucks are very large and can be difficult to enter, so be careful when you enter the truck. Finally Buckle up, and do not exit the vehicle unless directed to by the driver.

Accountability 

Towing companies are not perfect. Sometimes mistakes are made and accidents happen. The most common of these are minor dents, or dings. A good tow truck driver will complete a pre-tow inspection of your vehicle. They will note any prior damage and take pictures of that damage. If you need to make a claim ask to speak to a manager about resolution. Most of the time the company will just want to pay out of pocket and not involve insurance. Rising insurance prices associated with losses continue to effect the ever rising cost of towing service.

Be Prepared 

Finding the very best of any service can often take time. Unfortunately when you are broke down time is of the essence. Because of this, it is important to do your research BEFORE you have a need to call for towing service. This idea holds true for mechanics, and body shops. Another tip is to write the name, phone number, and addresses down of these shops. In the event that your cellphone dies you are still able to access the vital information you may need.

How To Jump Start A Car

Do it yourself Emergency Roadside Service –  How To Jump Start A Car

Before calling for emergency roadside service for a jump start. Try and do it yourself. Knowing how to jumpstart your car can save you a-lot of money and time. Knowing how to jump start your car is great, only problem is you need to have the correct equipment. You should always keep jumper cables or a jump box in your car in the event of a dead battery. If you do not have the equipment give us a call and we will help you out immediately.  If you would like to know what our jump start service rates are you can find them here. Have all of the equipment you need? Here are the 6 steps to jumpstart your car.

1) Take out your jumper cables

It’s a good idea to buy a set of jumper cables and keep them in the trunk compartment. If you don’t have jumper cables, you have to find a good Samaritan who not only is willing to assist you but who has jumper cables as well.

2) Prepare Both Vehicles

Before jumpstarting your car, place both vehicles in park or neutral and shut off the ignition in both cars. Engage both parking brakes as well.

3) Connecting Positive clips

Next you are going to need to find the positive terminal of your battery. Attach one of the red clips to the positive terminal of your battery. It has “POS” or “+” on it, or it’s bigger than the negative terminal. Now do the same to the other car.

4) Connecting Negative Terminals

Next locate the negative terminal on the other car and connect the black clip. Then attach the last black clip to an unpainted metal surface on your car that isn’t near the battery.

5) Start Working Vehicle

Next start the working vehicle and let it run for a few minutes. This will allow the battery to charge a bit while it runs. If you try to start your car too soon it may not have stored up enough energy from the other battery.

6) Try Starting Your Car

If it won’t start, make sure that the cables are properly connected and have the good Samaritan run his or her engine for five minutes. Then try to start your car again. If it still won’t start, your battery may be beyond help.

7) Call For Emergency Roadside Service

If all else fails, give us a call! We will gladly help you with a jump start or any other emergency roadside service.

Calculate Your Phoenix Towing Quote

Towing Quote What effects the pricing for towing service?

Finding good pricing on towing services in Phoenix can often feel overwhelming. This is a go to guid on how to calculate towing service rates. Therefore, when you understand the cost of towing your car you are able to make a better decision as to where to take it. For instance if you break down outside of town and your towing bill is going to be a few hundred dollars, then it makes more sense just to have your vehicle repaired at a closer facility.

What is a flat rate tow?

Many towing companies offer a flat rate local tow service. Generally the flat rate tow is for vehicles with no major mechanical defects. If your car has air in all four tires, can go in to neutral and roll freely then a flat rate tow service is your best bet. Flat rate towing is the tame price every time regardless if you go 1 mile or up to 5. Always confirm with dispatch that you qualify for flat rate pricing.

 

How are towing prices in Phoenix calculated?

Normal towing rates have two parts to them. The first is the Hook. The hook charge is what the towing company charges you to send their driver out to you, and load your car onto their vehicle. The second part of the price is the milage. Our standard milage rate is $3.75/mile. Calculate the milage from pick up to drop off. Below is an example.

Towing Service Quote  = Hook + Loaded miles  x Milage Rate. 

A 10 mile tow would be calculated as such. Towing Cost = $67 (hook charge) + 10mi (From pick up to drop off) X $3.75 per mile. Your total cost would be $104.50.
