Towing: Not Just for Car Breakdowns

When one thinks of towing companies, the image of a car broken down on the side of the road comes to mind. Accident towing though is not limited to car breakdowns, and while many towing companies may not have the necessary vehicles and equipment to tow anything else, Metro City Towing has everybody covered. Towing for heavier equipment like scissor lifts, forklift, generator, light towers, pumps and containers may be a little less straight forward and require a more equipment than a standard tow truck but it does not mean that you have to spend hours trying to find a towing company that can get your vehicle off the road. This is the reason that Metro City Towing has a diverse range of equipment to tow anything from cars to heavy machinery. Servicing the greater Brisbane area, at any time of the day on any day of the week, you can be sure that if you find yourself needing accident towing, regardless of the vehicle you drive or what you need towed, you will be able to get help from Metro City Towing company. Our towing services are not just limited to accidents or breakdowns, but we are also able to help you arrange towing of heavy machinery, containers and other larger items. Whether you are trying to get a specific piece of machinery to a work site or a container to location, we can help.

Towing Company vs Roadside Assistance

It is almost a given these days that people have roadside assistance, but for those who are possibly looking into signing up or have not got around to it, it is important to explore all avenues. Chances are the time you are thinking about roadside assistance the most is when you are sitting in your vehicle after it breaks down and, in that moment, the last thing you want to be doing is weighing your options up. Instead of in the spur of the moment signing up for a roadside assistance that you may only need at that time, consider enlisting the services of a towing company. While roadside assistance may be able to get your car moving in that moment, chances are that if your car breaks down, the first place you will want to take it is to the mechanic. A towing company will be able to take your car straight to a mechanic and if you enlist the accident towing services of a company like Metro City Towing in Brisbane that operates 24/7, you will not have to leave your car stranded on the side of the road. If roadside assistance is still something you are considering investing in, then it is better to give yourself time to weigh up the pros and cons, and not make that decision while broken down on the side of the road. Stressful situations can lead us to panic, especially if you have broken down in a place like the freeway or at night or early morning. Instead of panic buying, seek out the services of a towing company for accident towing. You will not regret it.

So You Have Broken Down?

Breaking down is a stressful situation, especially if you need something like accident towing. It may be late at night, you may be on a busy road and you may possibly be alone. Unless you are a seasoned mechanic, you may not know exactly how to fix or patch up any issues that have happened to at least get you home safe- so the whole situation may be overwhelming. If you find yourself broken down, then it is important to keep yourself safe as many accidents can happen to those who have already broken down, especially on a freeway. First thing is first, make sure you have your hazard lights on, so people know your situation. If you can get the car off the road or over to the side as much as possible, please do so. Try to stay in the car with your seatbelt on. That way you are not left exposed to the traffic around and/or the weather, especially if it is cold and raining. This is where having a towing company number saved in your phone comes in handy, and if you have the details of a company for accident towing like Metro City Towing who operates 24/7, you will be able to arrange a tow straight away.

What To Look For In A Towing Company

It is important to consider a myriad of factors when it comes to choosing the right company for towing machines, caravans, vehicles, even utes and trucks. Professionalism and reliability is a massive factor when it comes to towing companies as you want to seek a company with experienced team members and one who takes good care of your vehicle and knows each of the types of towing: towing machinery, trucks of the everyday use vehicle. Expertise is high on the list and reliability is a crucial consideration as you need the company to be ready and available when you experience the unfortunate situation of requiring a tow.

We aim to be as prompt as we can to ensure reliability and we engage with you in a professional and courteous manner. Pricing is also an influencing factor as there are many companies out there who charge industry-inflated prices; just because they are expensive does not mean they match this with a premium service. Considering the cheapest companies also does not mean you won’t gain a good service but they might be more limited in expertise or availability. Therefore, selecting one with reasonable pricing, for example, middle of the ground and one who responds well with you over the telephone when you call for a tow is a wise choice. Metro City Towing is your smart choice for towing machines and other vehicles as well as caravans.
