uber for towing

Nowadays, the highways are filled with many rash drivers. Accidents are happening so frequently still people do not care and accelerate like racing in NASCAR track. If they do not care, someone is required to take care of this happening. According to the studies, more than 5000 people die every year just because they do not get any help on highways. Most of them lose out their car engine on highways and no mechanic is approachable. There are many tow truck on demand service that is available but they do not work remotely.

Their services are limited and do not follow the lands of outside the boundaries of the city. What if any individual broke out with its car engine, how and what will be the source of communication with the tow truck service provider? A whole new concept is required to provider tow truck services that can reach out to the outlands of the city.

Let’s us take a look at some basic requirement that is necessary to start-up a new tow truck on demand business.

  • Space

The most basic requirement to start a tow truck business is space to store all your necessary tools. An area or warehouse where you can store your tow trucks and wreckers. There are many types of tow trucks available in the market. It depends on what type of vehicles you will be towing and what wrecker you will be using to tow that vehicle.

You can purchase multiple trucks if you have a large warehouse to store more than 1 truck. For a small vehicle, you can purchase a small truck that will use only the required power and fuel to tow small vehicles like motorbikes. Or, you can purchase a big truck to tow both big vehicles like cars as well as motorbikes too.

Wreakers are also of different types that are used in different situations. If the vehicle is totally damaged, you can purchase and use flatbed wrecker for towing a whole vehicle safely. The other one is hooked wrecker that is used for undamaged vehicles. The vehicle can be hooked from the rear axle.

Eventually, you can expand the collection of your trucks and tools required for towing any vehicle.

  • Staff

Well, this is not a business that can be run with only a single manpower. It is obvious that you will require a good staff to manage all the services that you provide. You will require some good drivers on whom you can trust. But before you hire them, you will have to make yourself sure that they have a valid commercial driving license. Also, consider checking their driving record, whether it is clean or not.

Then a few mechanics that are expert in handling automobile troubles will also be important to hire. Make sure that all your drivers and mechanics show some courtesy to your customers. They should handle your customer politely. Also, it helps them in every possible way as they may already be in trouble.

  • Security

In many countries it happens that a towing company does not have their own parking area, so they park the impounded vehicle in someone else’s parking. Well, this is illegal and to overcome this problem, you should have a secure parking area where you can keep impounded vehicles safely for days.

The parking lot should be covered to protect the vehicle from rain and other natural calamities. As it will be someone else’s property and it will be your responsibility to keep it safe for multiple days or a week.
