Idaho Falls Towing

Imagine heading to a critical business meeting or an important interview, and you are running late. Suddenly, your car runs out of gas in the middle of nowhere. Such situations leave many people stranded, confused, not knowing what to do or who to call. Vehicle breakdowns, accidents, and other road incidences are unfortunate but common events that occur unexpectedly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 12 million people need roadside assistance each year. The assistance can range from simple locked doors to actual life and death situations. Calling for roadside assistance can be a daunting and stressful experience, especially if you are in a rush.

A reliable towing and recovery service can manage all kinds of roadway accidents and incidents. A professional towing company handles every situation from vehicle breakdowns, collisions with other vehicles or objects, single-vehicle crashes, to load shift. Having a towing company on your speed dial can go a long way in making the roadside assistance process fast, efficient, and as smooth as possible.

What you Need to Know about Towing Service

Most towing companies will tow small cars, compact SUVs, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), electric vehicles (EVs), vans, and trailers. Some towing companies also feature heavy-duty towing services, can tow trucks, buses, farm equipment, motor homes, and semi-tractor vehicles.

Types of Tow Trucks

You want your vehicle handled with the utmost care, causing no damage while towing. Therefore, it is wise to know different ‌tow trucks and their functions to identify the right truck for your vehicle. Common ‌tow trucks include:

The Cost of Towing Service

Towing service costs depend on distance, type of vehicle, time of day, state, and towing company. Therefore, it is advisable to call and inquire how much it would cost to tow your vehicle with the towing company.
