Are You Looking For A Tow Truck?
If you are traveling in the Bay Area of San Francisco and are experiencing vehicle problems, you’re going to need the services of a towing company. There are many companies locally that provide car towing services but you must be careful when deciding who to call.
B & A Towing is located in the heart of San Francisco and has the widest coverage of any other company around. We have been around for more than half a century (50 Years) and promise to provide the best possible towing and roadside assistance, at the right price.
How Much Does Tow Truck Service Cost?
There are millions of motorists traveling in and around the San Francisco area every day. For these folks to have the ability to receive towing and roadside assistance 24 hours a day, there must be an ample supply of towing companies available. This availability is a luxury most motorists take for granted due to the fact that they don’t understand what’s required to be available to tow their cars and trucks.
Requesting the services of a towing company such as B & A Towing are simple, just call. What’s not simple is understanding all that goes into determining how much to charge for our services. Generally speaking, most towing companies determine their costs for towing services by taking all the costs of operating a towing business and multiplying that number by the percentage of profit they need to continue to provide service.
To understand how a towing company arrives at its pricing you must know a little math. Start by adding all the costs associated with running a towing business and then divide those costs by the number of tows or roadside assistance calls performed. Doing this for a given year, you will arrive at an “average cost per tow.” If the “profit per tow” the towing company wanted to realize was 4% then all one would need to do is multiply the “average cost per tow” by 4%.
How Does Tow Truck Service Work?
When it comes to towing your vehicle, there are only a few ways in which it should be done. A tow truck can be a flatbed car carrier, a wrecker equipped with a wheel-lift, as well as a heavy duty towing machine. All-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles should be towed using a flatbed car carrier, or a wrecker equipped with a wheel-lift and dollies. Two-wheel drive vehicles can be towed behind a wrecker equipped with a wheel-lift or on a flatbed car carrier.
Towing a vehicle is simple once you understand how it all works. First, you must ensure that no damage is done during the loading, securing, and unloading of the vehicle. This is done by knowing where to secure the chains and equipment used to load and secure the vehicle to the bed or wheel-lift. In most instances, when using a flatbed, we use the manufacturers’ transport slots to attach the bridle to a vehicle. Then pull it onto the bed and secure it using various methods.
When loading with a wheel-lift wrecker tow truck, we simply scoop up the front wheels of the vehicle and lift them off the ground. We then secure the wheels to the wheel-lift using a strap and ratchet system.
