Towing Or Road Side Repair Which Do you Choose?

First concern, what is your repair. If you can visually see an obvious repair, for example, a fan belt, or a hose then of course a road side repair service would be the one to use.

However, if your truck just dies, water pump, clutch, or the elusive “won’t start”, you may be on the road to considerable expense as a road service repair facility charges by the hour whether they can fix it on the spot or not. You would still pay تعمیر ساید for a road service to come and look at the truck. In most cases, road side repair do not have the necessary equipment to properly diagnose. They will end up replacing parts through trial and error, run to the parts store or dealer for these parts and the truck owner will pay for all the driving around and then end up having to call a tow truck after all for a tow to the repair shop. A towing service knows the nearest repair facility and makes no assumption on your repair.

Another example, you need a jump start but your repair facility is over 50 miles away. Most roadside service repair will travel and charge a considerable fee to do this. If you have a towing company that handles your local needs, you would be served better as they would refer a towing company in your breakdown area which could cut your costs down by some as high as 300%.

Many roadside repair services advertise towing. It would be in your best interest to ask if this is their own tow truck or do they sublet to a towing company. If they sublet then expect to pay a higher towing fee for their handling the invoicing at a mark up fee as high as 45%.

Most tow companies that have been in business for any length of time have state of the art equipment to handle the aero dynamic and “hard to tow” trucks one sees on the roads today. These tow companies can get you to the repair shop damage free in a minimal amount of time which means you are back on the road sooner ready to work. No spending an extra day or night or money trying to figure out what to do next while you sit on the side of the road, hungry. Heck, ask for a burger and your tow driver will be more than accommodating. A 45% burger mark up is far better than a 45% tow mark up.
