Top 5 Most Common Reasons You Need a Tow Truck in Edmonton
Based in the Edmonton area, we have encountered a wide variety of towing scenarios over the years. In this article, we’ll discuss the top five most common towing situations in Edmonton and how Tuber Towing can provide fast, reliable, and professional assistance.
Winter Weather-Related Incidents:
Edmonton is known for its harsh winters, and snow, ice, and cold temperatures can create hazardous driving conditions. Common winter-related towing scenarios include vehicles sliding off the road, becoming stuck in snowbanks, or experiencing dead batteries. Tuber Towing is well-equipped to handle these situations with our fleet of tow trucks and trained operators familiar with Edmonton’s winter conditions. Check out our other post (Slushy Driving) where we provide some tips for winter driving. BUTTTTT It’s over… or is it? Yes, lets hope it’s over, so lets say we covered this first so we don’t have to think about it for another few months!
Unfortunately, traffic accidents are a common occurrence in any city, including Edmonton. Tuber Towing is experienced in handling a variety of collision-related scenarios, from minor fender benders to more serious accidents. Our team prioritizes safety and efficiency when recovering vehicles involved in collisions, ensuring minimal disruption to traffic flow and getting your vehicle to a repair facility as quickly as possible. Minimal distruption to traffic flow is good for those who aren’t in need of the tow. As we respond to such situations, many think we are only focused on the collision when we are also considering the flow of traffic. Typically we implement a Traffic Management Strategy as soon as we get on scene. Cleaning up the scene in a timely manner is just as important as directing traffic to keep it flowing and get you home.
Breakdowns and Mechanical Issues:
Vehicle breakdowns can happen at any time and often occur at the most inconvenient moments. Tuber Towing understands the importance of getting your vehicle off the road and to a repair shop quickly. Whether it’s a flat tire, engine trouble, or a malfunctioning transmission, our team is prepared to provide prompt and professional towing services in the Edmonton area. Sometimes the breakdown happens at home, leaving to go to a family function, or even better when you’re trying to go to work (yay a day off!), but it’s never planned. Simliar to going to the emergency room, Tuber Towing is like a Car Ambulance, coming to rescue your car and get it to a car doctor!
Parking Violations and Unauthorized Vehicles:
Illegally parked or unauthorized vehicles can be a nuisance and sometimes require towing to resolve the situation. Tuber Towing works closely with property owners, local businesses, and law enforcement agencies to quickly and safely remove unauthorized vehicles from private property or public spaces in the Edmonton area. While this is not our primary business, and nobody feels good doing it it must be completed. Impaired drivers need to not exists and Tuber is happy to respond to someone caught driving impaired as we are proud sponsors and supporters of MADD Canada. But those who illegally park, or choose to disobey signs, please please please answer the door if we knock!
