What It Means to Be an Insurance Trusted Towing Company Like Tow Jam

Drivers in the North Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth areas, you know that Tow Jam is available to respond to your roadside emergency 24/7.

Despite the lack of school zones and reduced rush hour traffic, summer is a busy time on the road. With dozens of people driving in and out of town seeking adventure, danger can be lurking just at the next intersection. Fortunately for drivers in the North Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth areas, Tow Jam is available to respond to your roadside emergency. 

At Tow Jam, we work with major insurance companies, such as Geico, and motor clubs in the area to help when emergencies strike. For the regular driver in our community, this means that even if you don’t have our contact information, your insurance provider will and can have one of our trucks sent to you when an accident occurs.

After contacting your insurance provider about getting a tow from Tow Jam, you’ll receive an ETA for when one of our vehicles will arrive. This may seem unnecessary, but it’s an important safety measure that we take very seriously. Having an ETA gives stranded drivers a time frame when one of our recovery specialists will arrive, so they won’t panic or possibly mistake another tow service for the one being sent to them. 

Once our truck arrives on the scene, the tow operator will be able to assist you with your emergency in a professional, timely manner. While some tow companies may be restricted due to their equipment’s age or limitations, our fleet is equipped to handle a wide range of issues.

Tow Jam is proud to say that we service more than 3,000 vehicles per month from Geico and that more than 98% of our services are completed within the estimated time frame. When you need a tow in the Northern Dallas or the surrounding area, be sure to call (214) 321-3004 and connect with Tow Jam.

What to Do While You Wait For a Tow

Calling for a tow truck can be a stressful experience. It can also be frightening if you don’t know what to do. There’s no need to panic! Call Tow Jam NOW! And follow these tips

Calling for a tow truck can be a stressful experience, and for many, it can also be frightening if you don’t know what to do. There’s no need to panic in the face of an emergency. In this blog, the Tow Jam team is ready to tell you what you need to do while you wait for one of our trucks to come to your location.

• Find a Safe Spot to Pull Over – Your vehicle may not always be able to move after an accident, but if you can park your car somewhere safe and away from traffic. Pull over to the side of the road, put on your hazard lights, and turn off your engine until help comes. If your car wasn’t in an accident and your engine is still running (i.e., you have a damaged tire), then staying in your car with the AC on is a fine option.

• Call for a Tow Truck – For drivers in North Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth, the obvious answer for who to call is Tow Jam. For those unable to be helped by our fast, efficient team, dial AAA or your insurance to have a truck sent to you.

• Ask Your Tow Company for Identification – It’s important to know who is coming to get you when you call for a tow. Those calling Tow Jam will be able to identify us by our black and yellow trucks, but you can also ask us and any other tow company for the driver’s name and/or the truck’s license plate number to know that right operator has arrived.

Now that you know where to go and what to do after an emergency, remember that Tow Jam trucks are available for 24-hour roadside assistance. So if you find yourself with a dead battery, flat tire, or were just involved in an accident, remember to call (214) 321-3004 to have a Tow Jam driver sent to you.

How to Pick the Right Tow Company

How to Pick the Right Tow Company. Drivers in the North Dallas and Houston area already know to choose the reliable tow fleet at Tow Jam

Have you ever found yourself stuck on the road with a flat tire? How about a dead battery in the middle of a parking lot? Even if you’re an experienced driver, one or more of these situations has probably happened to you and being stuck waiting for help can be frustrating. The only thing more frustrating? Getting the wrong kind of help!

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to tow companies, but during an emergency, you need to pick a company you can trust. Our recommendation is to do your research now and keep the trusted company’s number with you in case of an accident. Of course, drivers in the North Dallas and Houston area already know to choose the reliable tow fleet at Tow Jam, but for those far away who might need a little more guidance, here are a few things to look for when choosing the fleet that fits your needs:

  1. Equipment/Fleet – A large, well-maintained fleet can help with a variety of problems and also get to multiple locations in a pinch. While smaller fleets can offer you a more personal touch, they’re more likely to either not have the right equipment for your vehicle or keep you waiting while they handle another client! Look for a towing fleet like Tow Jam. We have one of the largest fleets in the area and all of our trucks are fully rigged and equipped with the tools to pick you up when you need a rescue.
  2. Reviews – It may not surprise you to know this, but you can tell a lot about a company from their reviews. While you may get the occasional angry 1 star from a friend of a friend who may have had a bad experience, it’s still important to consider the number of reviews and what they say about the company’s skills and professionalism. Tow Jam, for example, has years of experience and a positive reputation from around the community so we have plenty of feedback to hold up our reputation.
  3. Certification – Anyone with a pickup truck can try towing a vehicle, but when it comes to skill and knowledge it takes a little more. That’s why it’s important to look for a tow company’s qualifications. The exact requirements vary from one area to the next, so that’s why it’s important to do a little research. If a tow company doesn’t have their credentials listed on their site, be sure to give them a call to see what they can tell you.
  4. Price – Tow Jam takes pride in not only having great customer service but being honest and fair when it comes to our prices. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for every fleet out there. Some tow companies will take advantage of you in your time of need, so research those prices now so you know who to call when an emergency strikes.
  5. ETA – Tow Jam is quick to respond and has multiple locations, ensuring we’re able to get to stranded drivers quickly when they call us. The same can’t always be said about other fleets. While there’s nothing wrong with having a single location, distance and timing are important things to consider when you’re stuck on the side of the road. Make sure you trust only fast acting, professional tow companies when you need help.

Hopefully, this list has provided you with helpful tools when researching your local tow team. If you’re in Northern Dallas, Houston, or Fort Worth, remember to trust Tow Jam for all your towing needs. Call us at (214) 321-3004 for 24-hour help when accidents, breakdowns, or other emergencies strike. https://towjam.com/

Safe Holiday Travel Tips from Tow Jam – Dallas, Houston & Euless, TX

The holiday season is upon us and while you’re making plans to travel over the river and through the woods, Tow Jam wants to remind everyone to gear up for winter. It’s true; Texas isn’t exactly a winter wonderland, but whether or not you are traveling to parts known to bring plenty of snow, we want to provide drivers in our community with these tips to make their holiday road trip a success

The holiday season is upon us and while you’re making plans to travel over the river and through the woods, Tow Jam wants to remind everyone to gear up for winter. It’s true; Texas isn’t exactly a winter wonderland, but whether or not you are traveling to parts known to bring plenty of snow, we want to provide drivers in our community with these tips to make their holiday road trip a success.

 

  1. Get a Check Up – Maybe you’re traveling across the country or you’re just taking a trip across the state. Wherever you’re going it’s important to know your car will be able to get you there safely. Before you depart on your road trip, make sure to schedule an appointment with a trusted mechanic. Have them top off your fluids, take a look at your battery, and make sure the AC will be able to keep the cabin comfortable.
  2. Gear Up Your Car – This step is especially crucial for those traveling into snowy destinations. If you’re facing icy roads, invest in a set of winter tires. Winter tires will help you grip slick roads, although depending on your destination, all-weather tires may be good enough. Replacing your wiper blades will also help maintain your visibility. Ordinary windshield wipers won’t be able to handle clearing auto glass during snowfall, so winter blades will help keep the road in clear view.
  3. Gather Emergency Supplies – Even if you’re just making a trip across town, having an emergency kit in the car can help everyone feel at ease. You can purchase a pre-assembled kit online or in a local auto store. Along with roadside assistance supplies (jumper cables and road flares), make certain that your kit includes kitty litter (helps with slippery spots on the road), flashlights, a spare cell phone charger, a first aid kit, and emergency rations such as food, water, and a warm blanket. Again, keep your destination in mind and stock up accordingly.
  4. Grab a Map – Remember not to rely too much on your technology. Your cell phone or GPS may be great in the city, but when traveling long distance it’s not unlikely to cross into areas with spotty or no service. Have a paper map with handwritten directions nearby to keep you on track and safe.
  5. Get Some Rest – Finally, as exciting as a road trip may be, you still need to be well rested in order to keep yourself alert. Driving sleepy can be as dangerous as driving drunk and no amount of coffee replaces a full night of rest. Do your best not to push yourself to meet a deadline or beat traffic during your trip. Get a good night of sleep before you hit the road and never be afraid to switch off with other drivers or take the occasional break.

 

The Tow Jam team hopes that you keep these tips in mind when heading home for the holidays. Remember, we’re only a phone call away so when you need help with a breakdown, flat tire, or any type of issue while driving through the North Dallas area call us at (214) 321-3004 for 24-hour assistance.
