Not everyone needs a local towing service, but in some scenarios, there are those who require a long distance tow. There are a number of different scenarios where a person may need to have a vehicle towed to a different city or state. Often it can be hard to locate a towing service that you can trust that will tow your vehicle long distances. Speedway Towing & Roadside Assistance will share where and who to consider when you need a long distance towing service you can trust.
A Flatbed Tow Truck is Better for Long Distance Towing
When you are looking for a long distance tow, know that most towing companies will consider anything over one hundred miles as long distance. Depending on the vehicle that is being towed, there are different types of tow trucks. If you need a tractor or larger vehicle towed long distances, you will need to ensure the towing service has a heavy duty tow truck. For your average vehicle, a wheel lift or flatbed tow truck is all that is needed. For long distances, it is highly recommended that you seek a towing service with a flatbed tow truck. A flatbed tow truck helps keep the vehicle off of the ground. This helps to better protect the vehicle and reduce wear and tear on the vehicle.
How to Find a Towing Company Near Me
Most towing services will provide local tows or a tow under 100 miles. When you need to seek out a long distance towing service, you will need to do a bit of research. You will need to locate a company that provides long distance towing. However, you will also want to ensure they have the right tow truck for your needs. Once you have found a towing service that provide long distance towing and has a variety of tow trucks that can transport your vehicle, the next step is to seek out a towing service that has good reviews. You will want to either ask those with personal experience, for this is one of the best and most honest reviews you can get. If you cannot find anyone with personal experience with a towing service, you can then seek reviews online. After finding a towing company with good reviews, you will also want to make sure they are properly licensed and insured. When you need to have your vehicle towed long distances, you will want to make sure they are licensed and more importantly, that they are insured. They are responsible for your vehicle while it is being towed and you will want to make sure they have insurance policies that help protect your vehicle.
