For anyone that’s ever owned an exotic car, the thought of having it towed might seem a little scary, especially if your dealing with an expensive sports car. There are many scenarios a person might find themselves needing a towing company, whether it’s transporting the vehicle during a sale or purchase, or the dreaded tow back to the dealer if you are unfortunate enough to have your car break down or even worse get into an accident. Consider the timing, is this an emergency situation or something that is not time sensitive.
Check Reviews Online
Before you decide to call a company to inquire about using their services, do a quick google search and see what comes up. Look at the recent reviews and see what other previous customers are saying about the business. This can save you the headache of dealing with an unethical company that may charge hidden fees. While searching for a reputable company in the Los Angeles area, I came across Pink Towing. This would be the ideal company to use for several reasons. They have over 100 5-star reviews on Yelp and their website homepage shows them towing a green Lamborghini. You can assume a company like that knows how to treat clients and their exotic cars.
What Will This Cost
Towing companies can offer a variety of different services that will vary in price depending on the job, vehicle and location. Make sure you understand the costs involved when you call a towing company. Towing companies offer simple services like a tire change or jump starting the battery in addition to more expensive and time consuming jobs such as vehicle recovery or long distance towing. You can find a company for almost anything, I even found a company that offers gas delivery services in Los Angeles for anyone stranded in that city without gas in their vehicle. Some insurance companies will offer to pay or reimburse for towing charges and services depending on your policy and the situation. It’s always a good idea to call and verify your covered beforehand otherwise you may end up paying out of pocket.
If you are stuck in a time sensitive situation, it may be frustrating to find yourself waiting around for a tow truck. Unfortunately this is something that is generally out of your control. If you are located in a dense major city, you can most likely have a truck brought within 60 minutes, are sooner. If you are in a more rural area, expect wait times to be much higher along with the cost. Most companies will charge extra for anything over 50 miles, anything under that threshold is considered a “local tow” by most companies guidelines. Another rule of thumb, the denser the population, the more tow companies around, so if your stuck in a tiny town, your options may be limited.
