No one ever plans on being in a collision, but it’s always best to be prepared just in case. In the event you have been in a collision write down the following information:
- Obtain the other driver’s contact information
- Phone numbers (home and cell)
- Email address
- Driver’s license information
- License number
- Class (G, G1, G2 etc.)
- Name, as it appears on the license
- Vehicle ownership
- License plate, make and model of vehicle and owner’s name
- Policy number, name of insurance company, name of insured
You should know that it is illegal for a tow truck driver to approach a driver at a collision without having been called in by either the police or the motorist. Tow trucks are not allowed within 100 meters of a collision unless they have been formally solicited by police, the driver or the driver’s insurance company. If another tow truck arrives on the scene, please tell the driver you have already called Jonny's Towing.
Jonny’s Towing always takes the time to ensure you are safe and secure before we begin hooking up your vehicle. We are always upfront and honest with our services. There are never any hidden fees and you are always treated in the same way we treat our own family and friends.
