how to prepare your vehicle for a towing service

When the unfortunate happens and you need to get your vehicle towed because you’ve been involved in an accident or you’re broken down on the side of the road, you need to call  Gardenstate Towing.

To make the process as easy as possible, here’s how best to prepare your vehicle for a tow.

Remove Your Personal Belongings From The Car

Take your bag, purse, wallet, phone, laptop, keys and any other items you’re going to need, out of the car before the tow truck arrives. If you have important documents, you’ll want to remove them from the car as well.

Separate Your House Keys And Your Car Keys

If you have all your keys on the same keyring as your car keys, you want to separate these as you only want to leave the car keys with the tow truck driver.

Take Your Garage Remote Out Of The Car

Many people forget about taking the garage remote out of their car. Don’t leave this in the car because if it gets into the wrong hands, you could be inviting intruders into your home or garage.

Remove Your Toll Tag

If you have a toll tag in your car, you want to take it out before the tow truck arrives. You don’t want to be charged if the tow truck takes your car through a toll while it’s being towed.

Don’t Forget The Baby Seat

If you have a baby seat or booster seat in your car, make sure you unbuckle it before the tow truck arrives. This will save a lot of time as baby seat buckles can be tricky to undo even when you’re not under stress.

Take Out Your Disability Parking Tag

If you have a disability parking tag permanently installed in your car, remember to remove this and take it with you. You can then use it if you get a hire car while your car is being repaired.

Move Any Other Items Out Of Sight

If your car needs to be towed to a panel beater or mechanic, make sure that you move any other belongings in the vehicle out of sight. Pop them in the glove box or the boot.

Wind Up The Windows And Keep The Doors Unlocked

It’s best to wind up all the windows to protect the interior if it starts to rain while the car is being towed. You also want to ensure that the doors are unlocked if you’re not going to stick around for the tow truck company to arrive.

I got towing organised via an insurance company. Tow came to Montmorency on time and got the car pulled up safely and efficiently to the mechanic. Five stars for the driver.

We needed to tow our Porsche 997.2 Carrera from the depths of our apartment carpark to Porsche Centre Melbourne. GT used a low rise unit operated by Tom to enter the carpark and collect our cherished vehicle. Tom's executed the tow with great skill and performed a flawless job. I would not hesitate to use GT and Tom for this task again - hopefully will never need to!

Our car was stuck in one of the steepest and angled driveways that barely had room for one car. Tom was amazing and really took the time to technically work it out and incredibly got the car out unscathed! Very impressed and grateful for the help we were given today, would highly recommend Tom, he’s a legend!
