There is no shortage of great weather in Arizona during the fall winter and spring months. This wonderful Phoenix winter weather brings the snowbirds. Can you really blame them for leaving all of the snow behind and come into the wonderful warm Desert Air? Not at all, anybody in their right mind would enjoy the beautiful warm as opposed to the freezing cold and shoveling snow. There is much to do in Phoenix Arizona during the winter. Many snowbirds who have some amount of wealth will take a limousine service in Tempe Arizona to the Sun Devils games or any of the sporting events near Tempe and Phoenix. Unfortunately, occasionally even a limousine will malfunction and require a towing service. This is very difficult for most of the drivers and owners of a limo service. The last thing they want to see on their limousine is a tow truck hooking up to it.
With ASU being located in Tempe there are a lot of students in a lot of activities related to the university. Many wonderful football and basketball games are played in the stadium which provides limousine services with many opportunities to transport their clients to these events. Not only are there the sporting events but there are many fine restaurants near Tempe in Scottsdale and Phoenix. With this amount of travel volume there are occasionally accidents and vehicle breakdowns. So what do you look for when you want to hire a tow truck?
Finding a good towing service
In today’s world the Yellow Pages are history and have gone the way of the dinosaur. Most everybody has a cell phone and most of those are smart phones. So the quickest way to finding a reputable tow truck service is to use your phone and just Google it. Some things to look for or whether the phone is answered quickly and professionally. There are many towing services available some are just one man operations and then they range up to large National chains. All of them can be good at providing service but you still need to be careful. Most of the rates are fairly close to the same, there’s not a lot of variation but a little. But when you need a tow truck are you really going to worry about $10 or $20?
For a limo owner or driver or professional chauffeur who has a vehicle out-of-service with the party inside of it $10 or $20 makes no difference at all does it? He needs service immediately and it needs to be done well. So since many tow truck companies are smaller operations they know the stresses and strains of running a business. Definitely let them know that you are on a job and have a limousine full of people who were expecting to be at their destination at the correct time. Because the tow truck owner understands the stresses of business he may be more sympathetic to helping you. As always honesty is the best policy.
You definitely want to let them know the size of your vehicle so they bring the correct truck. A wheel lift tow truck may be inappropriate for a large limousine. For a very large limousine you may require a heavy wrecker or at least a medium duty wrecker to do the job. Fortunately, many towing companies have a variety of wreckers or tow trucks ranging from light-duty to heavy duty. Very likely you are going to need a medium duty or heavy duty truck to move a large limousine. The last thing you want is the tow truck to show up with the wrong tow truck causing a further delay.
The towing and roadside assistance service will need to know the approximate length of your limousine so as to know whether it will fit on a flatbed tow truck. If it won’t fit on a flatbed they will very likely need a medium duty wheel lift vehicle to haul your limousine. So definitely work with them by giving them the best information possible.
Now when it comes to summertime in the Arizona desert in Phoenix and the surrounding suburbs heat plays a major role. If you have a party in your limousine during the summer and you have a problem with the limousine time is of the essence. Don’t hesitate to get on the phone and don’t spend too much time shopping for the best rate from the tow truck company. Your clientele is now suffering in the summer heat of Phoenix which can be brutal. Your reputation is much more valuable than the ten or twenty or thirty dollars you might save by calling around.
