How much does towing cost in San Diego.
We get several calls a week inquiring about our towing services and customer is looking to get his car towed for the first time ever. Often we get asked if there is a fee for tow truck coming out to customer’s disablement location. It is a legitimate question to ask if you never had to use towing service and not sure what to expect.
A & D Towing, or any other San Diego towing service, does not charge a customer for the distance technician has to drive to get to customers location. You only have to pay for the miles your vehicle traveled loaded or hooked on to the tow truck. As an example if your vehicle broke down in Balboa Park and looking to take your car to a mechanic in Chula Vista, the distance from your disablement to your repair shop is about 10 miles. To calculate the towing cost it would be $5 per mile times 10 miles plus hook-up fee, a total cost for a tow would be around $115 – $120. Pricing may vary depending on type of vehicle (all wheel drive, lowered, stuck in “P” Park mode). So the simple answer to a question “Do tow companies charge for distance traveled to or returning from customer?” is NO.

Towing cost also depend on the nature of the problem. If your car got disabled in open parking lot or on the side of the street it is simple for tow truck technician to load it and transport. On the other hand if you are in low clearance underground parking garage or in a tight car port with other cars around you, it may need extra equipment to position the vehicle first before getting it on the truck. Extra labor means extra cost and most companies screaming about their cheap towing service will try to add additional charges as soon as they see your car.
