With all of the proper information it can help prepare you and provide you with more ease when having your vehicle towed. Citywide Towing Service will share what questions you should ask and what information is needed before you have your vehicle towed in Texas.
Towing Information Basics
When you call to have your vehicle towed there is basic information that you will need. When you call your towing and roadside service provider, give them the basic knowledge of your situation such as your location and the color, make and model of your vehicle. They may request a license plate number to help identify your vehicle faster. If your insurance provides coverage for towing, the towing service may request basic information such as address, name, and contact number.
Quote for Towing or Roadside Assistance
There are a number of factors that can determine the cost of having your vehicle towed or even receiving roadside assistance services. First, each towing or roadside service company sets their own prices, and depending on your needs, the price can vary. For example if you need your vehicle towed, the size of the vehicle and/or the distance it will be towed can determine the total cost. When requesting your particular service, ask for a quote or estimate so you are aware of the cost.
Towing Insurance Coverage
If you are concerned as to whether or not your insurance company will cover the cost of the tow or roadside assistance fees, know it will be determined by two factors. One, of course is if your insurance policy covers towing or roadside assistance services. The second is if the towing company is under the list of providers they cover.
Towing for Vehicles that Can’t Drive & Roadside Assistance for Cars that Can!
Depending on your situation, you may need either towing services or roadside assistance services. Basic breakdown issues such as a flat tire, you’ve run out of fuel or require a jump start, in most cases roadside assistance services is all that is needed. If the vehicle isn’t able to be driven, for example it was involved in an accident and has been damaged, or if the vehicle has had a major mechanical failure and requires repair before it can be driven, you will need towing services.

If you need your vehicle towed, you may want to have a destination in mind. You may want your vehicle taken to your mechanic or possibly to your home.
