Keep up with the latest from Titan Towing


If an accident occurs on the roadway, most people know that a tow truck driver can help by moving a damaged vehicle off the road or to another location.  However, full-service professionals like Titan Towing do much more.  

Titan’s drivers provide roadside assistance such as helping with lock-outs, jump starting vehicles, winch-out services, and refueling. They are also experts in transporting heavy vehicles and machinery when needed. 

Roadside Assistance

Vehicle Lockouts

When you’ve locked your keys in your car, the first person you may think of calling is a locksmith, but Titan Towing drivers have the tools and expertise to do the job quickly and more cost effectively. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, some locksmiths charge three to four times what Titan charges for a lock-out and Titan is available anytime day or night when many locksmiths may not be.       

Jump Starts

Car batteries can be unreliable and no one wants to hear the dreaded clicking sound a car makes when the battery is dead. Titan Towing can come to the rescue to get your battery recharged and get your disabled vehicle back on the road quickly. If your car’s battery is not rechargeable, Titan can replace it with a new one or let you know if a more extensive repair may be needed.

Mud Pulls and Winch-Out Services

Inclement weather such as heavy rain or snow can result in slippery, sludgy roads. Getting stuck in the mud or sliding into a ditch is not fun for anyone. No matter what causes you to get stuck, Titan’s powerful equipment can safely pull your vehicle out of a sticky situation.

Fuel Delivery

No one intends to run out of gas, but it happens to motorists quite frequently. It can also leave you in a dangerous situation depending on where your car comes to a stop. Instead of inconveniencing a friend or relative, or causing a potentially unsafe situation by walking to a gas station, or asking a stranger for help, Titan drivers can deliver the fuel you need to get your vehicle started again.  

Unique Vehicles and Heavy Equipment

Classic and Luxury Cars, and Motorcycles

If you have a classic cruiser, a vintage motorcycle, or a luxury roadster that you consider to be your “baby”, Titan’s professionals will treat it with the utmost care. They’ve transported everything from 1950’s coups, to Harley Davidson’s, to Aston Martin’s, and have the expertise to keep your special vehicle in top-notch shape.

Heavy Vehicles or Machinery

Transporting heavier vehicles such as passenger cars, vans, SUVs, and trucks up to 1-ton is Titan’s specialty. In addition, farming equipment, drill presses, and forklifts are just a few examples of the heavy machinery they have transported recently. Their flatbed and wheel lift trucks, along with their professional operators, allow them to safely move heavier vehicles and machinery with ease.   

Titan Towing is a true full-service towing company. They consistently go above and beyond their duties in helping motorists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, making them a leader in their industry.

For Titan Towing drivers, safety is the highest priority as they work in precarious situations to move vehicles out of traffic on busy Dallas-Fort Worth freeways. The tow truck operators depend on other drivers to follow laws that keep them, and other motorists, safe.

Unfortunately, last May, an individual who was not adhering to the Texas Move-Over Law, struck a Titan Towing truck as he was working a wreck on a DFW highway. The individual was on her cell phone, making a payment with her debit card, while she was driving. Fortunately, everyone was okay but many times this is not the case.

The Move-Over Law was implemented in Texas in 2003 and initially referred to emergency vehicles only. The law required drivers in the right hand lane, who came upon emergency vehicles parked on the shoulder of the right lane, to slow down to twenty miles per hour (or five miles per hour if the speed limit was under twenty-five) and move over to the next lane to the left if possible.

In 2011, that law was amended to include tow truck operators.

In a Texas Department of Public Safety news release from June 2012, DPS Director, Steven McCraw stated:

“This law is about providing extra protection for those individuals on the side of the road doing their jobs, as well as the people on the roadside with them. Thanks to this new provision, tow truck drivers, who are usually helping motorists in distress, now have additional protection under the law so they can do their jobs in a safer environment.”

Penalties for not following the Move-Over Law could result in fines up to $200 and the punishment is more severe if there is property damage. Jail time is also possible if someone is injured.

The law was amended once again in 2013 to include Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) workers.

In 2014, DPS issued over 17,000 warnings and citations in relation to the Move-Over Law. Many people are not aware of the law, were distracted and not observing the law, or were simply ignoring the law.

Distracted drivers like the one who struck the Titan Towing truck last spring are all too common in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and across the nation.

According to the Centers for Disease Control,"Each day in the United States, more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,153 people are injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver. Distracted driving is driving while doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving. Distracted driving can increase the chance of a motor vehicle crash.”

It seems like common sense to not be “doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving”, yet thousands of people a day talk, text, eat, read, and even brush their teeth while operating a motor vehicle putting themselves and others in potentially dangerous situations. Adhering to a law, such as the Texas Move-Over Law, enacted to keep yourself and others safe on the road, should be a top priority. Doing otherwise may result in a citation, having your vehicle towed, or a much more serious situation.
