When working for a junk my car company, towers face multiple problems during their work day. One problem that towers face is the fact that they are not allowed to drive on any road that they want to drive on. Towers are prohibited from driving on certain highways where commercial vehicles are prohibited. This causes some inconveniences, as you could imagine, because towers have to find alternate routes to get to their destination.
Another problem that towers face during their work day is that they cannot fit in underground garages and/or parking lots. This is mainly a problem caused by the car seller or the junk my car company’s operator. It is the operator’s responsibility to ask where the vehicle is parked and to make sure that it is easily accessible for a tow driver to tow it away. Sometimes. Though, the operator does in fact ask these questions but the car seller is either not honest or simply does not realize that the vehicle is not easily accessible. So what happens is that the tow driver arrives to the scene where the vehicle is located only to find out that his truck cannot fit into the garage/parking lot, thereby wasting the towers time and the carsellers time.
Being prohibited from driving on certain roads and not being able to fit in garages and parking lots are not the only problems that tow drivers face. Tow drivers also face harassment from police officers. Tow trucks are often pulled over so that police officers can make sure that the company that the tow driver is working for is legit and licensed. This is also an inconvenience because, as we all know, time is money, and pulling a tow driver over is going to cause him to be late to his pickup and every pickup thereafter for that day; it messes up the dispatcher’s schedule for that day as well. Not only does it inconvenience the tow driver and dispatcher, but it also inconveniences the car seller, making him more likely to choose another company to pick up his vehicle.
Other problems that junk my car towers face are harsh weather conditions. These include frigid, windy winters as well as hot, humid summers. Towers have to work outside of the vehicle to hook up the vehicle to their tow truck, so they are exposed to these harsh weather conditions. A tow driver’s job is not as simple as some people may think, after all.
