Can Towing Damage Your Car?

Now and then, we need a helping hand. However, a helping hand can do more harm than good when a car breakdown occurs, even if it is well-intended.

Breakdowns can be highly stressful and dangerous. Your top priority will be to get your vehicle and you to a safe spot, so it may seem almost unthinkable that a tow vehicle could cause further damage to your car. Because of this, you need to choose a towing company you can trust, such as Mick’s Towing Service.

Trust the professionals

Needing a tow for your car is never a great experience, no matter what the reason. If the towing itself causes further damage to the vehicle, it will surely go from bad to worse. Car owners often worry about this, but in reality, while your car can be damaged, the chances are slim. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t let your guard down completely, and keeping an eye out for potential risks is always a smart move.

Towing companies handle the majority of towed vehicles, and they are usually fully certified and insured. In addition to being fully trained in the tow truck operator’s vehicle, they are also comfortable assessing your car’s towing needs. Although nowadays flatbed towing is standard practice, it wasn’t always the case. Tow truck operators typically rolled a stalled vehicle to its next destination by engaging the wheels. A tow of this kind will most likely result in damage.

When leaving the task to the professionals, you won’t have to worry about towing a vehicle.

Take photos, read the paperwork

Before towing, it is essential to take pictures of your vehicle to demonstrate its current condition. Additionally, read all documents before signing them: a disreputable or unreliable tower could impose unexpected charges. Some contracts may stipulate that the company is not responsible for any further damages they cause. A car wrecked in an accident will have a greater chance of being damaged if loaded onto a truck or transported. We at Mick’s Towing are committed to helping you out whenever you need it.
