What Is a Wrecker Service?
When you see a tow truck with a vehicle on the back, you may see the car lifted with two wheels still on the ground. However, this isn’t always possible. Some vehicles experience significant damage as a result of a crash — or a wreck. This is where the name comes from. These vehicles are often considered totaled and can no longer move. There’s no way that a winch-style tow truck can move a wrecked car or truck from the road — at least not without causing even further damage. Instead, it’s best to contact someone who can help provide wrecker services when you need them most.
A wrecker service can come out and do the following:
- Use a flatbed and hydraulic lift to get a handicapped car or truck onto the platform before lifting it up for removal from the crash site.
- Collect debris from the crash scene, especially if it can go back with your vehicle should you attend to save it.
- Safely tow your vehicle after a wreck to prevent it from experiencing further problems.
Remember, all wreckers can be tow trucks, but not all tow trucks can be wreckers. Even more, it requires an expert team that has experience with these situations to help you. It’s imperative to feel confident in the team you decide so you are not concerned at all times about the other issues that can impact your vehicle.
When Should I Call a Wrecker?
Remember, the company you choose matters. You can call other tow truck companies, but if they’re trying to send out a winch-style truck or they’re not sure how to handle a wrecker service, you should be wary about how they can help you. You usually call a wrecker after you’ve already experienced a severe car accident or your vehicle is otherwise handicapped. When your vehicle can no longer operate on its own, a wrecker is often the most beneficial way to get it off the road.
Contacting a wrecker service after a crash is imperative because you get transport to exactly where you want your vehicle. You need to have insurance adjusters look at the damage or a mechanic you intend to have fix your vehicle. Even more, you need it off the road to keep yourself and others safe. A wrecker is a perfect option to get the job done quickly and effectively.
Essentially call a wrecker:
- After a severe multi-vehicle accident
- If you crash on your own
- If your vehicle is handicapped with significant damage
