This is the third entry in our Car Accidents Statistics series. Last month, we wrote about Monash’s towing statistics. The month before, we looked at the five-year history of towing in Boroondara. This month, we are looking at Stonnington.
We take our statistics from VicRoads. VicRoads report all accidents in which someone has been injured. This doesn’t include a number of our emergency towing services, such as when a car has broken down, become bogged, or simply won’t start. The statistics help policy makers identify the most dangerous roads and can help remind drivers to drive carefully.
Stonnington is the Local Government Area comprising of South Yarra, Prahran, Windsor, Toorak, Armadale, Kooyong, Glen Iris, Malvern and Malvern East. Stonnington really starts from Punt Rd/Hoddle St and extends out East. Its Northern border follows the Yarra (or Southern Link Tollway) down to Warrigal Rd. Stonnington’s Southern border is marked by Queens Way/ Dandenong Rd.

Ahmed took great care and attention to detail in loading and unloading my BMW M4. It's not every day you find a towing company that knows how to handle prestige vehicles.

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

Fred was great! He towed my son’s car late at night and was incredibly positive and non-judgemental. His customer service skills was second to none, and someone who modelled a genuine enthusiasm for his work. What a great role model!
