Signs of a Good Auto Repair Shop in DFW

Signs of a Good Auto Repair Shop in DFW

by | Oct 27, 2017 | Uncategorized

As a professional towing company in Fort Worth, Titan Towing has worked with many reputable auto repair shops over the years. Unfortunately, there are some automotive shops in DFW who do not put as much emphasis on ethical business practices as some others. So, it’s important to know the signs of a good company who will consistently offer their customers the best in service, products, and repair.

Following are some ways to make sure the body shop you decide to use is customer focused and will do the best job possible to ensure your vehicle is repaired properly.

Experience

If an auto-body shop has been in business for many years, that’s a good sign that they are providing their customers with great service. However, that’s not to say that newer businesses aren’t as good. If a newer repair shop has an experienced staff, some who may have even come from older businesses, the expertise you will receive will be reflected in their work. If a company is newer, ask who will be doing the work on your vehicle and when and where they were trained for auto-body work.

Reputation

A company’s reputation is probably the best indicator of the type of work they will do. The best way to check a company’s reputation is through word-of-mouth and online reviews. If friends and family members have had a good experience with an auto repair shop, the business is more than likely trustworthy. Their past performance for others is a good indicator that the shop will provide repairs that will meet your expectations too.

Certifications

In addition to experience and a good reputation, a certified auto-body shop is important. Certifications indicate that the necessary training was conducted to ensure employees perform their job based on standards put forth by the certifying body. On-going certification is even more impressive. It shows that the shop has employees with the most up-to-date training needed to fix your car timely and effectively

Warranties

Warranties can give you the peace of mind that repairs are consistently done well. They can also indicate that only the best automotive parts are used. A trust-worthy auto-body shop will provide a warranty on parts and labor for a specified period. This will give you the peace of mind that if anything does happen to go wrong, the auto shop will cover the repairs without additional costs to you. Make sure to understand the warranty thoroughly, so you will know what to expect should you need to use it.

Much like Titan Towing, many automotive repair shops are committed to providing their customers with the best possible service. Knowing more about a company’s experience, reputation, certifications, and warranties can help put your mind at ease.

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.
