Contract Towing’s image and reputation are critically important to us. We are setting a new standard for integrity and customer service in the industry.
Public perception is monumental. Towing companies have a difficult task. Let’s face it: having your vehicle removed from a property is not a pleasant experience. Our approach is to make the experience as pleasant as possible by providing 24/7 online permit registration, clearly posted signage, transparency and empathy which typically results in a better understanding on the part of the vehicle owner. Our reputation is paramount and we strive to treat everyone with respect and understanding.
Physical Image is also tremendously important to us. Contract Towing’s posted signage is aesthetically pleasing, has a softer profile, pleasant colors and provides a thorough description and warning of what unauthorized means. Patrols are done with discreet vehicles that can check a property very quickly and quietly. Drivers are fully uniformed in clearly identifiable clothing. Trucks are all newer, well cared for and neatly lettered. Our facilities are clean, neat, well-lit and professional.
Contract Towing’s technology is patent protected and exclusively licensed to us by OnLine Parking Pass. We utilize an accessible web database and RFID technology to patrol for unauthorized vehicles. The database is accessible by property managers and contains robust generation capabilities. Property managers are also provided GPS enabled reports of when and how often the property is patrolled. Towed vehicle reports can be automatically generated and emailed to property managers each time a vehicle is removed from the property. Removed vehicle history allows the property manager to see photos depicting the exact situation before we removed the vehicle. Every action taken by Contract Towing is time-stamped and recorded. These features provide transparency that is uncommon in the industry.
