Choosing a Towing Company
If you own a car or vehicle of any kind the chances are that you are going to need a towing service at some point in your life. Towing companies are there to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays. (Like the mail service right???) Towing can be tricky, especially in less than ideal conditions. For the driver it can be particularly stressful and even scary. We understand that and want you to feel like you’re reaching out for help from someone who understands your situation and isn’t just there to grab your car and collect a check. Hopefully most towing companies feel that way. It’s our goal at Glenn A. Trent Tires and Towing to pick you up, get you where you need to go, and ease your mind all while not hurting your wallet!
Beyond Towing: Roadside Assistance
The primary role of a towing company remains picking up disabled vehicles and their owners and getting them somewhere they can be get the necessary service to get them back on the road. In some areas towing companies may also be called by law enforcement to move illegitimate vehicles but that’s a secondary service and no one enjoys having to do that. The company you call to tow your vehicle should be available at all times, in all circumstances, and at reasonable prices. If your car is disabled on the side of Wards Road in Lynchburg, Virginia and you don’t have a way to move it you are going to be uncomfortable and so is everyone around you. You also may be towed whether you like it or not so it’s best to handle it yourself. Towing companies you look at should offer a wide range of vehicle recovery services including commercial towing, transportation, insurance accident towing, heavy duty recovery and transport, and residential and commercial property services. They should also have experience in your area so they know how to get around. Lord knows you don’t want to try and head up Candlers Mountain at the wrong time of day!
