Titan Towing – Arlington

Titan Towing began in Arlington on February 2, 2009 with most of our business built around mechanic and body shops—as well as car dealerships. Being long-time residents of Arlington, the founders of Titan Towing grew along with the familiar customer base—we knew what people were looking for, and how to best serve their needs. While Arlington is a large city, it’s known for having a small-town feel to it. Customers want a reliable company, with the humble and quality customer service of a local business.

Today, over 80% of Titan Towing’s towing and roadside services remains in Arlington, Pantego, and Dalworthington Gardens. Our services include:

  • Winch Outs
  • Lock-Out Assistance
  • Jump Starts
  • Fuel Assistance

A number of situations may call for emergency towing services—weather, battery, or fuel issues are some examples. Titan Towing offers services for almost any roadside situation (if a vehicle is more than 50 feet from a solid surface, however, we cannot provide services). Additionally, our towing restrictions apply when a vehicle exceeds 1 ton—Titan Towing currently does not handle any towing services for vehicles exceeding 1 ton. Below, we’ll explain some of our services and their processes.

 

Winch Outs

A winch out is a service offered when a vehicle hydroplanes or veers off the road or highway—typically during heavy rainfall. During the rainy spring season, this is especially common. Customers may find themselves in need of Titan Towing’s winch out services if they’ve veered off the road due to excess rainfall, and cannot resume their travels.

As far as quoting goes, winch out services charge a minimum of $145—this includes the first hour of services. In cases that require more than an hour, $80 will be the recurring charge for each hour. Additionally, if the customer or stalled vehicle is more than 10 miles away from our nearest truck, $1 will be added per additional mile (after the first 10).

Similar to winch outs in the sense that they occur during heavy rainfall, mud pulls become increasingly common during the winter and rainy spring seasons. If a driver finds themselves stuck in wet ground, Titan Towing will route the fastest possible way to them—and get them back on the road. In situations where mud pulls and winch out services are needed, the customer can choose to remain in the vehicle while they wait or exit—it depends on the situation and the weather.

Titan Towing’s mud pull services charge similarly to winch out services. There is an initial minimum charge of $145—which includes the first hour—and a recurring charge of $80 for each additional hour. Likewise, if the customer or stalled vehicle is more than 10 miles away from our nearest truck, $1 will be added per additional mile (after the first 10).

Typically, these calls come in last minute (unfortunately, during an incident). Emergency calls are answered by our in-house dispatcher—not an outsourced employee. Titan Towing firmly believes in hiring local dispatchers, in-house, for effective monitoring of weather, traffic conditions, accidents, familiarity with landmarks, etc.

First, we obtain information—including the vehicle—from the customer: make, model, location, and reason for disablement. Titan Towing uses this information in order to determine what type of truck to dispatch (for example, establishing whether a rollback or wheel lift is needed). Additionally, we keep a tab of how many additional passengers are in the vehicle in order to get a full picture for our drivers.

After obtaining all necessary information, Titan Towing will offer an exact quote and estimated time of arrival (that the customer can accept or decline). If accepted, we dispatch our driver; on average, it takes about 30 minutes for the driver to arrive on-location. Titan Towing has many years of local experience with drivers and vehicles, and can pull a vehicle back on the highway with no damage received to the car—unlike inexperienced operators.

Lock-Out Assistance

Titan Towing offers lock-out assistance services throughout Arlington and surrounding areas. These calls are usually unplanned as well, in specific emergency situations. Likewise with our other services, Titan Towing’s average ETA is 30 minutes, depending on the weather and traffic.

For our lock-out assistance services, Titan Towing charges a starting pay of $65 (which includes the first hour of work), with a recurring charge for each additional hour. Additionally, like our other services, we charge $1 per mile traveled exceeding 10 miles.

Jump Starts

Contrary to popular belief, Titan Towing does not offer battery replacement services. This is unfortunately due to insurance reasons, which is also why we do not provide tire repair or replacement services (however, we do offer spare tire changing services).

Titan Towing does, however, offer jump start services. Per usual, our average ETA is about 30 minutes (depending on weather and traffic). Once we arrive on scene, it typically takes only 10 minutes to successfully complete a jump start—and the driver is on their way.

As a side note—and also due to insurance exclusions—Titan Towing is no longer able to offer recovery services (for example, repossessions). Feel free to call our office for any additional details or information.

Fuel Assistance

Titan Towing offers fuel assistance in and around Arlington. If the vehicle is stalled on a highway (typically I-20, I-30, or TX-360), we will pick up the vehicle and take them to the nearest gas station—Titan Towing finds that much faster than bringing the fuel to the highway. However, if the driver is stalled in a parking lot, we will pick up the fuel and bring it to the vehicle.

Additionally, customers are more than welcome to ride inside the tow truck when relocating or towing. Depending on the situation, vehicle, and weather, using the truck as shelter is welcomed.

Non-Consent Towing

Titan Towing may be contracted by various apartment complexes throughout the Arlington and Fort-Worth areas to serve non-consent towing. While these occur for a variety of reasons, the most common are as follows:

  • Parking in a non-parking area
  • Broken-down vehicles
  • Nuisance vehicles
  • Vehicles with expired registration
  • Oversized commercial vehicles

Another situation where one might experience a non-consent tow is one ordered (or authorized) by a police officer. For example, these include stalled vehicles along the shoulder of a highway or cars involved in wrecks—when the driver is taken from the scene (either via ambulance or arrest).

The 7th Most Dangerous Job in America

During the early morning hours of January 4th, 2019, tow truck driver Keith Holt, 46, was struck and killed in a hit-and-run collision on the shoulder of I-20. He was assisting a woman with a stalled vehicle on the side of the highway, the standard procedure for tow truck drivers, when the white Nissan Altima swerved into the right lane shoulder. This workplace condition was common for Holt, and is a regular work environment for a tow truck operator; a job more dangerous than one might think.

Texas Move-Over Law: Keeping Tow Truck Operators Safe

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.

Titan Does More Than 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.

How to Choose a Good Towing Company

There are lots of towing companies in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Some are full-service, like Titan Towing,while others only do tows. No matter what type of service you need, there are some important factors to consider when choosing a towing company.

Drowsy Drivers After Daylight Saving Time

There are certain times of year when tow truck drivers are busier and one of those times has to do with time itself. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), forty percent more drivers are involved in automobile accidents during Daylight Saving Time which results in about 100,000 more accidents across the country. With many more drivers on the road, heavily populated areas such as Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth, can make the demand for a tow truck go up each spring and fall when Daylight Saving Time occurs.

Avoid the Need for a Tow During the Winter Months

Winter weather is just around the corner in DFW bringing the possibility of snow, ice, and increased calls to Titan Towing. During prior winters, we have seen how severe weather can create an unintended ice rink on the roadways of Fort Worth, Arlington, the Mid-Cities, and everywhere in-between. However, that does not mean you will be the one who may need a tow if you take some simple precautions.

One Hundred Years of Tow Truck History

There are lots of people in history that helped shaped the world we live in today. Many of them were inventors like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison who saw a need for improvement and created inventions to change a situation for the better. One such inventor, not as well known as Franklin and Edison, but just as important nonetheless was Ernest Holmes, Sr.

Your Vehicle’s Towing Capacity

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. It’s the time of year when people get out on the road to enjoy a vacation or to take advantage of the warmer weather for the weekend. For many in the DFW area, this involves everything from visiting the area lakes, to camping, to car shows, and rodeos. Many of these activities include towing a boat, trailer, camper, or other recreational vehicles. So, it’s always important to know your vehicle’s towing capacity.

Stay Safe While Waiting for a Tow

Some safety tips that many people are aware of while waiting for a tow truck to arrive are to turn on their hazard lights and to make sure their vehicle is out of the way of traffic. There are also several other precautions for drivers in the Dallas Fort Worth area that can ensure you are doing everything possible to keep yourself out of harm’s way until help arrives.

Basic Car Maintenance

There are many reasons someone may need to call a towing company, but having a car break down on the side of the road for poor maintenance should not be one of them. Keeping your car in good running condition is not difficult when you follow a simple schedule and a few basic tips.
