    What towing services do we offer and why we are the best in Virginia?

    1. Long Distance Towing. Our long distance towing service enables you to have your car, truck or any other standard vehicle towed within and outside of the state lines of Virginia.  We are capable and prepared to bring out our crew, the tow truck and haul whatever it is, wherever it needs to go. Plain and simple. It’s great for anyone who is moving houses and needs an extra vehicle taken with them.

    2. Disabled Vehicle Towing. This is one of our most demanded services. Every situation where transportation devices are involved has different circumstances as well as causes. Sometimes it’s a deer, casually crossing the highway while you’re booking it at 55 mph and simply cannot react in time and collide as the result or it could be a rock that springs from the road or truck’s tire into your cooling fan, disables it and next thing you see is the water temperature gauge all the way in red and the hood of the vehicle start looking like it’s vaping. Bottom line is our towing service is here to help you out of that situation safely and expeditiously. Time and time again we assist our customers with recovery of their broken car, truck or motorcycle and it’s delivery to an auto service shop of their choosing and sometimes home, for those who prefer to fix it themselves.

    This is our most popular one. If you’re ever in a jam and are struggling to get your transportation device up and going, give us a call and we shall respond immediately.

    3. Winter Towing. Throughout the winter months, Virginia has been getting progressively more snow over the decades and driving becomes tougher and tougher every following year. Icy conditions are also a very dangerous factor when it comes to touring the streets of Richmond. If you ever find yourself stuck in a pile and snow, or feel like as soon as you start moving, the car is drifting sideways, don’t hesitate to call our towing company and we will be getting underway to help you out. It is also worth mentioning that our trucks are equipped with snow chains during the winter month to ensure that we don’t find ourselves stuck together with you.It’s getting cold out there. When winter is in full bloom, it’s freezing out and some nights we find 4 inches of snow on the ground, you know for a fact that roads aren’t going to be as grippy as usual. The ice will be covering some parts of the highways and you will be slipping and sliding on your way to work, unless of course there are snow chains on your tires, which most people don’t even know exist.. Well, we do! Go ahead and give our towing company a call if you find yourself stuck out there and we’ll be out to rescue you.

    4. Accident Related Vehicle Towing. A lot of times, after getting into a minor and especially major accidents, drivers don’t feel comfortable pulling away, even though all of the insurance information has been exchanged and other issues are settled. It is completely justified to be safe, which is why we offer to tow your vehicle even if it isn’t disabled. Any road accident is a serious situation and should be treated as such. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, which is why our tow truck company takes your health seriously.

Here’s how to look at this one: We give you any equipment needed, our skilled crew, the best tow truck for the requested job and any other help you might need to tow whatever it is you need towed from point A to point B safely and in one piece, unless of course it came in separate pieces.

    8. Fuel Delivery. There are several reasons for you to run out of gas and be stuck waiting around.. Some of the most popular are forgetting to refill for a long trip, inability to find a gas station nearby and the gauge being inoperable. Believe it or not, but we do get quite a few customers calling our company to deliver fuel for them, especially if none of their friend or family are around. Don’t be shy and give us a ring when you’re out of fuel.

    9. Lockout. It happens is all we have to say about this. Often times people forget their key inside and we have recovered it for them numerous times. As the owner, you are not taught how to break into your own vehicle, but we are the professionals and are trained to do it right.

    10. Battery Jump Start. We supply the most affordable roadside assistance in Virginia. Many of our clients started using our services after having a jump start done, but stayed because of our cheap prices and well, being the best in business.

    Few words about getting a tow truck

    We’ve all been here (or we know of someone who has).
     
    You are driving down a road, typically in a place you are unfamiliar with. Murphy’s Law, right? Your car’s engine light comes on. The car suddenly begins to jerk. And then – the car shuts off as it slowly drifts to the side of the road. “This is just great,” you think yourself. So, what are you left to do now? If you are mechanically inclined, you could get out of your car and get yourself under the hood to try to troubleshoot the problem. You could hitch hike (although I wouldn’t recommend this!). You could sit there and wait for help. You could even pull out your Smartphone, cross your fingers, and hope to find someone in your call list that will drive out to where you are to assist you with your car trouble. Or maybe – just maybe – the thought crossed your mind to call a pro.
     
    Aside from “Tow Mater” from the Pixar movie “CARS,” tow trucks and their parent companies get a bad rep. They are usually the ones who are blamed for un-provokingly dragging away people’s cars, most likely, when you are least expecting it. More often than not, it happens at the worst times of the night (or morning, in some cases). Take, for instance, a college town or a big city, where parking is a hot commodity. Someone parks in a spot that “looks like good place to park” and heads into a local establishment to enjoy an evening with friends. To their dismay, when they go back outside after the night is over, they cannot find their car where they left it. “Oh man! Why would they tow me?” Well, perhaps not parking in a space where it is clearly marked with signs that say “NO Parking” might’ve been the culprit. Or when you don’t pay your overdue parking permit bill, you walk out to find a boot on your tire.
     
    What many people don’t think about is that tow trucks offer a great service, and usually at a decent price, to people who find themselves in the exact predicament as mentioned in the very beginning of this story. In many cases, the tow truck drivers are well adept at working with cars and might even be able to help you get back on the road in no time, without the need to tow your car. And if they can’t get your car back up and running again, well, they have the ability to load your car onto their flatbed and haul it to wherever you need them to take it to get it back on the road.
     
    Here is another good example to show you the “muscle might” of a tow truck service. How many times have you driven down the road and passed an accident on the opposite side of the road? Sure, we all stop and gawk at the scene, and hopefully you don’t create an accident on YOUR side of the road, as your eyes avert to places other than where you car is driving! But chances are – most of us have passed a situation like this before. When we drive past, the last thing we are thinking about is the cleanup efforts of that scenario. Tow truck drivers are usually the unsung heroes who, after they load up the un-drivable cars from the accident onto their flatbeds, they get the job of cleaning up all the broken glass and vehicle debris that is left on the road. By doing this, they have done their part in preventing YOU from running over all the stuff on the road and are minimizing your risk of getting a flat tire, or worse, swerving around the mess on the road and causing another accident. Sometimes, if you are super nice, they might even give YOU a lift with your vehicle if you are the one who finds yourself with a broken car. 

    Questions we get asked

    What types of vehicles are you able to tow?

    Currently, we provide handle all small and large vehicles to include passenger cars and trucks. As our company expands, our focus will be more on acquisition of newer and better trucks with more capabilities and multi uses.

    What types of payment do you accept?

    We accept all major credit cards as well as cash.

    What is your average response time?

    We don’t time our drivers to find out how fast they get to the client and determine their efficiency. We feel as though this type of competition is not safe. We judge our drivers based on their professionalism when talking to the client, skillfulness when loading up the vehicle and finally, the ability to handle stress when things don’t go as planned. One thing we can tell you for sure, is that based on customer feedback, our drivers have been arriving at the scene, during non rush hour times in 30 to 45 minutes. Rush hour generally delays the process by 15 to 30 minutes. Again, those aren’t our number and they’re coming from people who used our services in the past.

    Which areas do you tow in?

    The simple answer would be the greater Richmond area, but we still would like to clarify. Most of our towing work is done within Richmond, Henrico and Chesterfield County, and sometimes we work in Mechanicsville. If you’re located within a reasonable distance of Richmond, give us a call and we might be able to help you out.

    How far can you haul?

    As a part of our long distance towing service, we will help you get your vehicle wherever you need it, unless of course you’re moving across the whole country, in that case, I doubt we can help you. You best bet in that case would be to call a moving company in the area and make an arrangement for a trailer.
    What types of services does your company provide?

    We offer a very wide range of services ranging for light vehicle recovery to long distance towing. Much of what we offer is currently limited to the Richmond and Chester areas, but we’re hoping open up branches in neighboring cities and do business there as well, on a much larger scale. As of today, we feel that our services cover almost any type of problem Richmond’s residents can run into while operating their motor vehicles.

    Do you provide roadside assistance?

    Yes we do and are not afraid to admit it. No matter what your need is, simply call us at (804) 655-0498 and we’ll get you out of that situation. The key point to make here is that our guys love to help people in slimy situations and it’s never a burden to come out even if it’s pouring rain outside.

    What is the average price for towing a car?

    The prices we quote are based on the distance of client’s vehicle from our office, the distance that needs to be traveled, what type of service it is being utilized and whether or not it’s an emergency.

    Do you offer emergency towing?

    Yes we do and would like to think that we’re the quickest tow trucks in town. If you’re in the middle of an emergency, we doubt you’d be reading this… If you are, make sure to call 911 if it’s something life threatening, and only then call us. We don’t have medic on board and only deal with vehicles.

    Can you access gated communities?

    We sure can, but will need someone to meet us at the gate, before we can enter. In the past we’ve been able to talk to the gate guy and convince him or her to let us in, but it’s not the way to go any longer.

    How many trucks do you have available?

    We are currently in possession of 5 tow trucks, each of which can handle a vehicle of different specifications. To inquire whether or not we have an availability for you, please call us at (804) 655-0498 and speak with our lovely dispatch.

    Do you provide 24 hour tow and assistance?

    Absolutely! Our staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for you convenience. Believe it or not, but usually we’re the busiest during the night. If you’re looking for a 24 hr towing service in and around Richmond area, go ahead and call (804) 655-0498, you won’t regret it.
