Image
When you're operating a tow truck or running a towing business, it's very important that you run the correct set of tires to safely get the job done. There's a lot of obvious and less obvious reasons for this, as you would probably imagine. But it's safe to say, when you're towing a heavy vehicle on public roads, you should do everything in your control to create the safest possible environment for the community, your customer, the vehicle, and don't forget about yourself.

Why Should You Use 10 Ply Tires for Towing?
If you're not running 10 ply tires on your tow truck(s), you definitely should be. This is something that should be done to ensure the proper load rating and provide an overall safe experience when towing, most importantly when towing heavy duty loads.

What Is It Like to Be a Tow Truck Driver?

Not many people wonder what it's like to work as a tow truck driver on a day to day basis, however there are quite a few people who are considering a career in the towing industry, so we wanted to create this content piece to help answer any questions that they may have.
If you’re someone out there who’s interested in becoming a tow truck driver, you may already know that there's a few requirements that are in place before you can hop into a tow truck and take off down the street.
Here are the requirements to be a tow truck driver:
CDL (commercial driver's license) High school diploma or equivalent Proper Training (usually provided by the company)
As you can see, the barrier of entry is rather low when you compare it to other professions, however one of the things to consider is that many tow truck drivers are actually paid based on a commission structure. So that means that you’d be in charge of finding your own hauls in some cases.

Often times many people don't actually know how to tell a bad towing brand from a good one, or a great one for that matter. The primary reason for this problem, is that it's definitely not something we do very often (maybe once or twice every couple of years).

We've noticed that this is a common problem in the industry, so we've worked overtime to help create a solution for the community in Las Cruces. We've done this by creating a very detailed outline aka infographic, showing what to look for when requesting quotes from local towing service providers.

It's better to know what you should be looking for in a tow truck company, so you may refer to this infographic that describes key indicators of a great towing company:

What Services Do We Offer?

Image
When looking to work with a tow truck company, you need to know what services they have to offer. This is something you should know because it's very important that you find a company that offers the best service for the situation that you're in.

Here's an example: Say you're on the way to drop your kid off at soccer practice and your car or truck runs out of gas. This is a situation where you should find a towing company that provides a fuel delivery service rather than a flat bed towing service.

Yes, we offer both flat bed towing and fuel delivery, however it would be advised that you opt for fuel delivery.

Why? It seems like we're stating the obvious here, but you would seriously be surprised at the level of misunderstanding their is when you're in a state of panic or desperation. Rather than over paying for a full-service tow, it is advised that you find a company that's willing to tailor their services to your specific needs given the situation at hand…

Have you ever had a bad experience with a towing company?

As upsetting as it is, many tow companies in Las Cruces will not make an attempt to repair or pay for the damages to your vehicle, but rather deny that they did any damage at all.
As time goes on, we've noticed that this is actually a true problem in the industry and no one is actively working to fix it. It seems as if it would make more sense to have an action plan for notable problems as such. So that's exactly what we did at the Las Cruces Towing Company.
