Tow Truck insurance Benefits

Most people think that tow-truck drivers make money by towing away crashed vehicles. Unfortunately this is not the case. Unscrupulous tow-truck drivers tow vehicles to their own repair shops. If the owner of the vehicle then refuses to use their repair shop to carry out the repairs then they charge extremely high towing fees as well as exorbitant storage fees. If the repair shop is not authorized by the vehicle owner’s car insurance company to carry out the repairs, then the vehicle owner is left with no other choice than to pay the fees being asked.

Firstly your insurance claim could be held up for months while trying to get your vehicle back from these repair shops. This leaves you without a vehicle for a long time and if your car insurance policy does not include a car rental option then you will have to foot the bill for your alternative transport. Secondly, taking them to court does not help either because the delay caused by legal action only results in higher storage fees combined with legal fees.

The best thing to do is to avoid this situation entirely! If you have an accident, the first thing that you should do is call your insurance company. You will probably be panicking, but the last thing you should do is allow a tow-truck driver convince you that you have to use their services. Keep your insurance company’s telephone number in your car or in your wallet, so that you don’t need to search for it after an accident. Once you call your insurer, they will send an authorized towing company to the accident scene. Your vehicle will then be towed directly to a panel-beater who is linked to your insurance company. This means that the towing and storage costs will all be covered by your insurance claim.
