I drive an older car that I always knew would break down some day in a bad place and need towed. I figured I could always easily look up the number of a towing company using my phone's internet service if I ever needed to. Recently, my car started making an alarming sound that led to me pulling off the road while driving down the highway. It then wouldn't start back up. I grabbed my cell phone and went to do a web search to find a local towing company, and I realized I had used up all of my data plan for the month! It was late at night, so I had to call and awaken friends until someone answered who could help. I created this blog to help others avoid the same embarrassment as me. Always keep the number of a tow truck company in your car.
As the owner or operator of a construction firm, you likely have some heavy equipment or heavy-duty vehicles on-site at your current project. Perhaps you also have some towing or transportation options available when trying to move some of this equipment or heavy-duty stuff across the worksite or to a new site altogether. One option to streamline this process would be to work with an outside firm that specializes in heavy-duty towing. Here's how bringing in some outside help can benefit your construction company and your employees.
Keep Your Equipment and Your Workers Safe When Transporting or Moving Heavy Duty Stuff
If you are currently using your own employees to move heavy-duty equipment or vehicles across a site or to a new location, this will increase the risk of an accident on your work site. You will also be responsible for any damage that occurs to the surrounding property or the equipment itself. Hiring an outside firm to assist keeps your own workers out of harm's way and may also cover you via an insurance plan offered by the towing company. Hiring an expert to assist with more difficult tows will give you better peace of mind and allow your workers to focus on other tasks.
Heavy Duty Towing Experts Can Handle Bad Weather, Mud, or Anything Else on Your Construction Site
Perhaps you have some towing capability yourself, but current conditions are less safe or more hazardous than usual. If there is a storm going on or your construction site is covered in sticky mud, your standard towing vehicles might not be able to get the job done. A heavy-duty towing vehicle can arrive on-site and safely take care of whatever needs done, even in less than ideal conditions. You can also ensure that you won't damage your standard towing equipment by forcing it to try a tow in rough conditions.
Form a Long-Term Relationship to Get Priority Status and a Quick Tow Whenever You Need It
Once you start working with a local heavy-duty towing company on a regular basis, you may be able to get quick and reliable service with a simple phone call. If the tow company knows that you are one of their most frequent clients, they may show up sooner or move you to the top of the list while dealing with multiple clients.
