What to Expect When Asking a Towing Service for a Ride Home

Posted by Ted Knight  on December 16, 2022

Accidents can and will happen. However, there’s a great feeling of relief when a tow truck shows up to transport your vehicle to a location where it can be serviced and made to run again. While this is all well and good, you might be concerned about getting home afterward. With your primary method of transportation out of commission for the time being, what do you do? With a towing service transporting your vehicle, you might be wondering about who will be transporting you.

Will a Towing Service Take me Home? 

Whether or not a towing service will take you home depends on a few important factors. More often than not, tow truck drivers understand the inconvenience it is to have your vehicle suddenly out of commission. Many will gladly take you home as long it’s not too far away. Many tow vehicles have limited space, so it’s important to keep this in mind. If you’re traveling with a group of people, they might need to make other arrangements. 

How Do I Know If I Can Get A Ride from the Tow Truck?

If you’re unsure of whether or not the tow truck can take you home, it’s advisable to ask beforehand. When you call a towing service to have your vehicle taken to the mechanic, it’s best to ask right then and there and not spring the question on the driver when he shows up. This is considered rude and inappropriate. If transportation is not available, a taxi or rideshare service is the best alternative. 

Will it Cost Extra? Is it Safe? 

Most tow services will not charge you extra for providing transportation to your home. They do this as a courtesy to their customers. Tow truck drivers operate their vehicles every day and have a lot of experience behind the wheel. Many have been screened prior to employment and are reliable drivers and human beings. Getting a ride from one is entirely up to you.
