Check your vehicle’s condition before it is towed by your car insurance company and take care to ensure it is covered by your policy.
If you’re considering a car tow, you may have already got an idea of the risks involved and you may not have considered that your car may be at risk.
While the insurance industry has been working on ways to make it more reliable and secure, car insurance companies are working hard to improve the way they deal with these situations.
According to car insurance expert, Dan Jones, the industry is looking at ways to reduce the number of tows.
“I think there are some good ideas on the way, but it’s going to be a very difficult situation,” Mr Jones said.
“You can always call your insurer and get a quote, but if you’re just getting into it and just going to take your car home to do it yourself, you’re going to pay more for the insurance.”
But what if you have a car that you can’t afford to lose?
“You’re still at risk for having a bad policy, but the risk is much lower because the risk in a car is not as high,” Mr Evans said.
He said it was important to know your options and make sure you have the right policies in place before taking a car to a tow.
“What you want to do is make sure that you have all the information you need to make a decision,” he said.
If the car is being towed without your permission, you can contact your insurer for help, but be aware that you may still be in breach of your policy and could end up owing money.
The tow car industry is set to continue its expansion in 2017 with a total of 12 car tows and 15 car storage companies.
