The first thing you have to decide is whether or not you need a tow truck. If your car has broken down, and it needs to be towed away for repairs, then the cost will depend on how far the service station is from where you are now. For example, if it’s only a few miles away, then the driver may charge less than they would if they had to tow your car several hundred miles.

The next thing you have to consider is whether or not you need a flatbed truck, which will be able to carry more than one vehicle at once. If so, then the cost might be higher because there are more moving parts involved in getting your car onto the back of a flatbed truck.

Finally, you need to think about the time of day that you need the tow truck. If it’s during rush hour and there’s a lot of traffic, then the driver is going to charge more than they would if it were late at night when there’s less traffic.
