One of the best investments I ever made was my CAA membership back in 2010. I’ve renewed it every year since! It’s saved me in snow storms in my S.U.V. and that time I got a rental and the flat tire almost screwed me out of going to see me niece. Well, today I realized I’ve been overpaying for my CAA membership this whole time and I could have just bend using www.Ottawa247Towing.com. Their flatbed service is cheaper then the chain towing that showed up after 4hours when I called CAA. Needless to say i’m only going to be calling these guy for a cheap car tow every time and I’ll make sir emu husband does the same thing.
The road can be an unfortunately crazy place and it always bothers me being stuck. What if a stranger pulls over? Is it really safe to be getting out of the car at all? I know that most police officers would say, if you’re in an accident (and your car isn’t on fire) you should stay inside of your vehicle as the steel cage that supports the walls of your automobile are their to protect you. The moment you take off you seatbelt you make yourself vulnerable to more damage. I say just wait in your vehicle. Look up a tow truck on your cell phone. I guess the normal fee is like $350 if you go through insurance. So if you’re not paying it doesn’t really matter. But if you are the one that’s going to be paying the bill I would suggest following this method.
Call towing company number one and get a firm low price that you can bank on. keep calling around until you have someone willing to reach a reasonable price. If you think you can go lower, consider looking up another option on Kijiji to see if you can find another local wrecker service that can cut you a nice deal for a fast cash service. Be careful though you want to make sure they are insured so that you aren’t absolutely screwed if the get into an accent while they are towing your vehicle. You’ve just been in an accident, you don’t want to add an additional lawsuit to this whole experience do you? I didn’t think so.
Be careful, If you go too cheap you might end up being on next years towing fails video:
