Want To Know How Our Tow Truck Service Works?
When it comes to towing your vehicle properly, there are only a few ways in which it should be done. To avoid damages, we insist that all of our tow truck operators be Wreckmaster Trained and certified. Wreckmaster is the leading towing training school on the planet and recognized as the authority by everyone in the industry.
To begin to explain the process, let’s take a look at the various types of towing vehicles. A tow truck can be either a flatbed car carrier, a wrecker equipped with a wheel-lift. There are also heavy duty towing machines that can tow tractor trailers and other heavy trucks. All-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles should always be towed using car carrier, or a wrecker tow truck equipped with a wheel-lift and the use of dollies. This is done to avoid damage to the drive-train while in tow. A two-wheel drive car can be towed behind a wrecker or on a flatbed.
Towing Cars And Trucks Is Simple…And Fun.
Towing your cars and trucks is simple, and fun…once you understand how to operate a towing truck properly. First, the tow truck operator must ensure that no damage is done while loading, securing, and unloading the vehicle. He knows where to secure the chains and straps used to secure the vehicle to the bed or wheel-lift. In most instances, when using a car carrier, we use the manufacturers’ transport slots to attach the v-shaped bridle to a vehicle. Then we pull it onto the bed of our truck and secure it using industry standard methods.
When providing reliable towing with a wheel-lift wrecker, we back up to the front of the vehicle and extend our wheel lift underneath the car. Here the wheel lift comes into contact with the rubber part of the tires. From there, we scoop the front wheels of your car, touching only the rubber of the tire with our equipment. We then lift the car into the air so that only the rear wheels remain in contact with the road. After that, we secure the wheels to the wheel-lift straps, to ensure they do not come out of the scoops.
What Does Towing Service Usually Cost?
Every day there are thousands of motorists traveling in and around the Duplin County area. Some are on the way to Wilmington, some are headed for the beach. If this is you, welcome to our county. For you to have access to towing services and roadside assistance 24 hours of every day, there must be a large number of reliable towing businesses around. Unfortunately, this availability is why many motorists don’t understand how towing is priced.
A lot of resources, including manpower, capital, and equipment are required to have the ability to help. We’re available to provide fuel delivery when you run out of gas, car lockout service when you lock your keys in your car and towing services 24 hours a day.
For the most part, most towing companies determine their towing rates based on what other towing companies are charging. Once they know how much others are charging for towing, they try to get a foothold by undercutting their rates. Unfortunately, that’s why many don’t stay in business very long. What they should be doing is determining the costs of the required resources and using that as a base to decide how much to charge.
With all that being said, at Duco Towing and Recovery we believe in providing our services at very affordable rates. When you call, we’ll provide you with a fair price, guaranteed.
