It can quickly ruin your day. You're driving down a busy highway, and suddenly your car overheats. Or even worse, you are involved in an accident and your car is disabled. What do you do next? Find a professional, licensed towing service. The cost will range from $75-$125 for a basic short distance tow, but the cost is worth it. If you try to tow your vehicle yourself, you incur the liability associated with it. Also, you run the risk of damaging your vehicle further.

Most areas, even rural ones, have at least one 24 hour towing service. These tow trucks can respond to your location and get you and your vehicle to a safe place, including a repair shop. You have the right to have your vehicle towed to the shop of your choice, but keep in mind that most towing companies charge additional money for additional miles.

While it may be an additional burden on your pocketbook, hiring a professional towing company is a necessity. It relieves you of any liability arising from the transportation of your vehicle, and also insures that your vehicle will not be damaged further. Most insurance policies include a provision for covering necessary tows.
