Geelong & District Towing
Of course it’s happened at the worst time possible. You really don’t need the hassle today of all days.
Who should you call?
Towing companies have a shocking reputation. You’ve heard the horror stories. Your mate got slugged with ridiculous release charges the last time he got a tow.
You’ve seen cars getting towed on their wheels. A good way to mess up someone’s car. There no way you’re getting anywhere near a business that uses dodgy towing techniques.
How do you find a towing company that’s quick, will take great care of your car, and won’t extort you with ridiculous fees to get it where it needs to go?
4 Common mistakes when looking for a good towing company
Mistake 1: Not asking if they run around the clock
Is the towing company closing in 5 minutes? Beware. You could be slugged with crazy after-hours towing fees. Or worse, left stranded.
Avoid the stress and cost. Choose a Geelong towing company that runs around the clock. This will give you a more reliable response team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mistake 2: Not doing a little homework
A towing company that’s been around the block for many years are still here for a reason. Otherwise they’d go out of business. There are exceptions of course. But longevity is one reassuring sign of a good towing company who will come through for you when you need it most.
Mistake 3: Forgetting to ask how far they service
A towing company that has a 20km service distance is no use if your car needs to be dropped off at your mechanic 80km away. Look for a Geelong towing company with multiple depots and services long distance, such as 100km or more.
Mistake 4: Not confirming your quote
Beware of towing companies that sneakily pack on the 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.
Bonus tip: Check in with your insurance company
Your friends and family might recommend a Geelong towing company they’ve used before. But how often have they actually used the company?
Your insurance company has a list of Geelong towing providers they recommend to their customers every day. You’ll have a better chance of getting a reliable, reasonably priced tow if you use a company recommended by your insurance company.
They are likely to be more professional as they will be held accountable for their service - if there are any problems, you can easily take it up with your insurance company.
