Private Property Towing When you are running a business, there a a couple of important things to keep sales flowing. One of those is good word of mouth for a tow truck San Antonio. The other, is access to your store, restaurant, or office.

Towing San Antonio can set up a plan to help keep unwanted vehicles away from your spaces. There are certain laws and rules we MUST follow however. Please look at those before deciding to call us.
You MUST put up a sign with our Business name and address on the sign and have it posted in plain sight in front of the parking spaces or area if we are to tow someone out. We can't move someone today if you have not had a sign up to specify that is a tow away zone and specifically with our Towing San Antonio service. It's the law. Also, this service costs more simply because of the time, storage, and extra cost involved in getting owners to retrieve their cars. Many time, they won't pick up their vehicle, and to legally get rid of that car, it can take over a year. So we must charge extra to have this done.
If you are a parking garage operator and need towing service, we are sorry that we are not able to tow with that low of a clearance. A repo service would be your best bet in that instance.

When considering using a Flatbed vs a tow dollie, remember tow dollies have certain weight limits that do not accommodate every vehicle. Some dolly systems cannot tow heavy trucks or SUVs. Towing San Antonio will ask about your vehicle’s gross weight and then find a heavy-duty rig able to adequately support the towed vehicle throughout transport.
Also, vehicles with a lowered undercarriage are susceptible to damage if transported on a tow dolly. When the towing vehicle hits a bump, your bumpers or exhaust pipe may hit the road and dent or crack. Don't take any chances. Call Towing San Antonio at 210-390-1181 and get it done right today.
Flatbeds are always a safer and less risky way to tow. They do cost a bit more, but it is worth the extra to have it done right and without damage.
"I'll just have my friend tow me"
This is not recommended at all. There are many cases where using a tow line of some kind between two regular vehicles, even from pick up trucks, where there has been extra damage and even accidents due to self-towing.
The distance between the two cars is a factor. If you are too close, it is easy for the car in-tow to rear end the car in front. If it is too far away, you risk an accident when crossing intersections and going through turns.

Cost Effective vs Cheap:
You looked us up trying to find a Cheap Towing Service in San Antonio.

Not all towing services in San Antonio are the same. Don't be fooled into saving $10 or $20 only to have your car towed poorly or stored in a way that will damage it. Consider this story from a customer who went with a different company in the past:
"When I was in an accident on the freeway, I wasn't sure what to do exactly. I spoke with the police, filled out a small report, exchanged my insurance info etc. The police already work with someone and called a Towing service to come and pick up my car. I wasn't aware of who they were.
When I went to call so I could go and pick up my car, they told me they were already closed and wouldn't open till Monday. I had to wait 2 more days and then could go by and get it. They charged me to store it while they were closed and wouldn't allow me to get it. To top it off, they had left the hood open when they put it in their storage yard and it rained into my cylinders. If there was any hope of salvaging my car and fixing it, they had eliminated that chance. It flooded the motor and was unusable. It cost me $450 just to let them keep it. I feel used and abused from that experience.
Fast forward to recently, I used Towing San Antonio when my car needed a tow on the side of the road. Not only did they come promptly, but the cost was reasonable. It wasn't ultra cheap, but they took good care of me. That is whey they are in the tow truck San Antonio service, not just a tow company. I recommend them to anyone."
We look forward to taking care of you in a similar way as well. Please let us know how we can serve you today. With Road side assistance San Antonio or a tow with a flatbed. Just call 210-390-1181
Prevention and up keep to prevent breakdowns
Of course, to avoid the expense of needing a two, basic upkeep and maintenance is very important. Many people just simply aren't aware of how to go about doing this. Here are some easy steps to take before going on any trips, to ensure you don't break down on the road:
1. Check your tire tread and pressure before you leave.
2. Listen to your vehicle and observe any sounds that are different than normal or that sound like something may not be working properly. If you notice something, have it looked at by a professional mechanic. If you have one problem and go traveling, you may end up with compounded problems.
3. Have your battery tested to make sure it is holding a good charge.
4. Maybe get a device that allows you to keep a spare set of keys outside the car, but attached to it, in case you lock your keys inside.
5. Check your brakes to make sure they are operating properly.
6. Have your preferences pre-selected before you enter your car, such as playlists, navigation directions, or time settings. If you are trying to reset any of these or make choices using them while driving, you'll increase your chances of an accident by about 20%.
Of course, remember, when something does break down on you, or you need a tow truck service, Towing San Antonio is here to help as quickly as you can. Please call us at 210-390-1181
What are tow away zones and what aren't?
When you own a business, you really need your parking spaces available to YOUR customers and clients. Sometimes people park right in front of your business on the street and it makes it very inconvenient for deliveries, pickups, and purchases. It helps to know when you may or may not be able to call a Tow truck San Antonio.
A couple of things to consider. First, you are legally allowed, as a business owner, to have someone's car towed away from your private property as long as you have a sign posted in the rights spot and it has the address of the towing company on it. Keep in mind, you may turn away future customers if they consider themselves a regular and just parked there for something else this time.
It is not legal, however, to tow away a car from the public road, even if that road is right next to your business. A car may be blocking a space that is normally occupied by your customers. You are not able to call a wrecker service for that. They would need to be on your private property to have this done.
On top of being on private property, the vehicle you would want towed would also need to be on an established space or lot that has marked it as such. If you have issues with people parking on your lot that don't belong, you need to get the appropriate signs up so that you have done your part in informing the violator of their action. You would then legally be able to call a tow truck.
