Ballan Accident & Breakdown Towing
A fast and friendly towing company that’ll come through when you need it most.
Car can’t start?
Got a flat?
Locked your keys in the car?
Had a few issues with your car and need to get it to your mechanic asap?
It’s great having a car. Until you don’t.
It always seems to happen at the worst time too. You don’t need the stress right now.
Who should you call?
There are heaps of dodgy towing companies out there:
Giving people the wrong address of pick up lots.
Arriving 5 hours late with no apology or reason for why they are late. Or leaving people stranded with no record of service requests.
Towing companies who just want to take people’s money and run.
You’ve seen cars getting towed on their wheels. There’s no way you want your car messed up with shonky techniques.
How do you find a towing company that’s quick, will take great care of your car, and won’t charge you an arm and a leg to get it where it needs to go?
3 Tips to find a professional towing company
Tip 1: Check in with your insurance company
Your friends and family might point you to a towing company they’ve used in the Ballan area. But how often have they actually used the company?
Your insurance company has a list of Ballan towing company providers they recommend to their customers every day. You’ll have a better chance of getting a professional and fair priced tow if you use a company your insurance company trusts.
Tip 2: Look up reviews
Google the business and look up customer reviews from Google, local service business listings, and Facebook. Pay particular attention to reviews in the past 6 months.
An established towing company usually has a strong reputation - or they wouldn’t survive. There are exceptions of course. Checking reviews is an easy, quick way to find out what the business does well - and not so well.
This will give you an idea about whether they will truly come through for you when you need it most.
Tip 3: Confirm your quote
Beware of towing companies with hidden costs. Ask for a quote and you should expect to pay for exactly that amount (or very close to it).
Check for release charges, after hours fees (if it doesn’t run 24/7), and emergency call out fees. You shouldn’t have to fork out for a professional, reliable, tow, no matter how urgently you need them.
