In this post, you’ll find a variety of tips and resources from various authors on starting a towing business, offering you a broad overview of the towing industry.
You’ll use these resources to decide if you want to start a towing business and you will use them later on if you decide to move forward.
Before you get to the resource section, there are a few issues to consider about getting into this kind of business.
A Broad Overview
As a tow truck driver, you’ll be helping motorists that need their vehicles towed. In many cases, you’ll get calls to change a flat tire, unlock doors because keys were left in the vehicle, or if someone ran out of gas.
Keeping up with the calls can be a stressful job, especially when you’re behind. You could be on one call, and another call comes in, and another, and so on.
If you’re on your own without any help, you could be on call 24/7, and that’s a tough way to go because you never have any time off. You can’t set your hours. Most towing operations run 24/7, so there is no time off.
At times you’re slow and have no work, and other times you won’t be able to keep up with the calls.
