How much does it typically cost to tow a car for 20 miles?
One of the most often asked questions is how much does it cost to tow my car? To begin, most motorists don’t understand the difference between towing a vehicle and recovering a vehicle after an accident.
Towing a vehicle is simply loading it onto a flatbed or wrecker equipped with a wheel-lift and then transporting it to its destination and unloading it. Due to the level of difficulty and the liability incurred, motor vehicle accident recovery is an entirely separate service.
Due to the many variables involved, including the number of tow trucks and operators needed, and the amount of time it takes to recover your vehicle and clean up the debris left behind, accident recovery is hard to put a price tag on. A simple tow, however, is easy to price.
Our towing services consist of a hook rate and a per mileage rate. For example, let’s say that your car is unable to move on its own power due to engine problems. To provide you with an accurate fee for towing services, we would need your location and the destination where you want your car towed. With these two pieces of information, we can easily calculate the costs involved and provide you with a rock solid price.
