Whether you are a car owner or you are a Towing Service driver, it is essential that you are familiar with the contents of your vehicle’s Trip log. The contents of this log contain a time and date stamp, a detailed description of the items being towed and the driver and contact information including the name of the person driving the tow truck and the telephone number.
The most convenient and quickest way to maintain and update this data is to have it entered into an online database. These websites allow you to have access to up to date information on all the vehicles that you tow. The nice thing about having this information updated regularly is that it will help to prevent your customers from leaving a car behind.
One of the most important things to remember when preparing for a trip is to be sure that you can get to your vehicle before the tow truck driver arrives. Check all areas of the vehicle to make sure that there are no hazards that could cause the tow truck driver to hit your vehicle. Take note of any tools, such as pry bars, adjustable hammers, and springs that may present a danger to them.
Once you are sure that your car is safe from the tow truck driver, unload the car and remove anything that is not necessary from the vehicle. Do not leave anything in the car that could potentially harm the tow truck driver or themselves. Make sure to check all tools, wrenches, and hinges and inspect for rust. If there is any indication of rust, do not even attempt to drive the car without adding rust repellent to the area.
