The car body is designed out of many parts that are assembled so that they have a seamless fit. Minor collisions, such as going over potholes and curbs, vibrate, bend, and twist the car parts so that they start shaking apart. The car will still run but will have degraded performance and provide decreasing comfort. Pay close attention to how your car behaves and you will be able to spot the early signs of it falling apart.

If you’ve noticed your car doors are not closing as seamlessly as they used to, it’s an early warning sign of hidden collision damage. Crunching, whistling, or grinding sounds when the car is on the move could mean the chassis or the parts it houses are also damaged by collisions. The sooner you bring your car to the body shop, the cheaper and quicker the repair.

Collision Towing

Modern cars are designed with safety in mind. They are built out of panels of pliable materials shaped into smooth curves that readily crumple in a collision, dispersing the force of the impact. That helps protect the people inside the car but also means any collision above 10 MPH wrecks the car.

If you’ve been in a collision and now have to deal with a wreck, it means the car has done its job and saved your life. Now it’s time we do our job and take care of your wreck. Give us a call, don’t touch anything, and move away from the road, especially if you’re near high-speed traffic. We do professional collision towing with wreckers and flatbeds of:

  • Motorcycles
  • Cars
  • Light- and medium-duty trucks

Stay calm, stay safe, and it will all work out just fine.

Long Distance Towing (any pick up point to any destination)

If you need to move your vehicle for 100+ miles, we’re at your service to help it get there in the best condition possible. We do long-distance towing, such as when you’re moving from one state to the next. Get in touch with all your long-distance towing questions and we will promptly answer. We are covered with both cargo and liability insurance.

Local Towing (Bronx to Bronx)

Navigating the Bronx traffic during peak hours is a challenge even for seasoned locals. Inexperienced tourists who have a dead car in tow will find it impossible to move from one block to the next. We’ve spent our entire lives in the Bronx, so give us a call and we will do the local towing for you, moving your car to any location inside the Bronx or to our body shop for repairs.

Illegally Parked Car & Private Property Towing

Businesses can lose foot traffic because of illegally parked cars and pedestrians might have to risk life or limb to get around them. Businesses can lose foot traffic because of illegally parked cars and pedestrians might have to risk life or limb to get around them. 

Don’t get into an argument with irresponsible drivers and don’t let them be a nuisance to society.

If you see an illegally parked car or it’s been parked on private property, it’s likely trespassing and the car can be ticketed. Call 911 and report the situation. Once the police ticket the vehicle, give us a call and we’ll tow the vehicle. All fees are charged to the vehicle owner.

 

Blocked Driveway Towing

Parking spots are always at a premium in the Bronx. Drivers visiting local establishments are constantly in a rush and want to park wherever they feel like, often blocking driveways and causing a nuisance. If your driveway is blocked, call 311 and report the situation. The rest of the procedure is the same as with illegally parked car towing.

Flat Tire Fix

A flat tire can happen out of nowhere and completely ruin your day. Unless you’re an expert in fixing flats and have special tools at hand, there’s little you can do to fix it. Even if you do replace the tire, spares need to get inflated before they’re roadworthy. Get in touch with us and we’ll fix and inflate the flat tire for you.

Jump Starts

If the car battery is too old, it will no longer provide enough energy to start the car. The simplest fix is to jump start it, meaning to hook up a live car battery to the dead one to restore it to life. But, car batteries contain sulfuric acid and lead that can create hydrogen. An old car battery can leak and spark, igniting the hydrogen to start a fire or explode one or both cars.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, give us a call. The jump start cables need to be attached to batteries in the right order to avoid mayhem. We have the cables and the experts that can restore dead batteries to eke out a bit more mileage out of them.

Car Lockouts

Car locks are more finicky than ever, using a combination of old-school lock pins and modern digital signatures to identify the authentic car key. Even if you have the proper car key and it used to work just a moment ago, it can give out at any moment, locking you out of your car. When that happens, give us a call and we’ll be right there to fix it for you.
