As one of the leading emergency tow truck services in Melbourne, we decided to start a regular blog series, looking at the areas we are called out to most. Last month, we presented to you the towing statistics for the Local Government Area of Boroondara. Boroondara is the LGA that is made up of Camberwell, Hawthorn, Glen Iris, Balwyn, Canterbury, Surrey Hills, Deepdene, and Kew. This month, we are talking about Monash’s crashes.
We take our statistics from VicRoads. VicRoads record crashes in which somebody was harmed or if emergency services were called. This means that the actual number of tows is higher than what we report — minor salvage tows when a vehicle gets bogged or otherwise stuck, emergency tows for cars that have broken down, speciality tows, machinery transportation and our other services are therefore not covered in these statistics.
The City of Monash
Monash is made up of some of our busiest suburbs. Our emergency tow trucks are often in Ashwood, Chadstone and Mount Waverley. Monash also contains Burwood, Hughesdale, Clayton, Notting Hill, Oakleigh, Mulgrave, Glen Waverley, Huntingdale and Wheeler’s Hill, and our tow trucks are a frequent sight in those suburbs too.
Towing Services in Monash 2017
The number of crashes reported in Monash in 2017 is significantly smaller than the number reported in 2016. Emergency services were called out to 40 car crashes in Monash last year, compared to 2016’s 109. While they were spread out across the area, VicRoads’ map reveals a number of crashes occurred along or near Huntingdale Rd and Doncaster-Mordialloc Road. There was one fatal crash in Monash in 2017. It occurred on the Bell/Springway Highway.
Over the past five years, the highways passing through Monash saw the highest number of crashes. The road with the highest number of fatal crashes in Monash was Ferntree Gully Rd.
2017 had the fewest number of accidents than any other year from 2012 to 2017. The next lowest was 2015, with 95.

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!

These guys are awesome! Used them twice now and was lucky enough to have Tom tow it both times, he took care of my pride and joy, kept me in the loop regarding pick up and drop off and went over and above to make sure my car was looked after. Highly recommend to anyone.

Unfortunately I found myself in a situation with one deflated run-flat tyre but Tom at Gardenstate Towing came to my rescue. Tom was absolutely pleasant and courteous! Let me ride up front and dropped me off home along the way to South Yarra BMW. Highly recommend Tom and Gardenstate Towing services!

My stupid car broke down on Hoddle St Melbourne, at least close to a pub! Tom was prompt and efficient and had me on my way (back to the pub) in no time. Thanks mate
