If you are looking for a good business venture that you can invest on, you might want to take a look at the money earning potentials of engaging in the tow business industry. Aside from the fact that there is less competition in the tow truck business, entrepreneurs that are engaged in auto towing businesses are more often assured of stable profits owing to the small number of towing companies that exist.

If you want to start a towing business, the following information can prove to be helpful:

Start up cost and requirements

You will need a license to operate a towing company. Remember however that you need to be patient in securing a towing truck business license because obtaining a towing license can prove to be difficult. This is because towing licenses are strictly regulated. People who are planning to invest in a tow truck business must also have at least $10,000 for a towing business start up capital. The starting capital for a towing company however can vary depending on your location and the type of operation you intend to have. In urbanized areas for example, you might need around $200,000 if you are going to purchase a tow truck and a towing license.

Operating a Towing Company

Starting a towing company will not guarantee you that people will automatically call for your towing services business services when they need help in towing vehicles. You must do something so people will know about your auto towing business company. It is therefore best if you can have a good marketing strategy so people will remember your towing business should they need the services of a towing company. You can post ads in local newspapers so people can read and know about you. It is also a good idea to contact companies that might need towing businesses to service them when they need to tow illegally parked cars in their vicinity. Towing business operators are also advised to come up with easy to remember names and phone numbers so people can easily recall their company when vehicle towing services are needed.

A towing business is a good business opportunity given the small number of competitors in the industry. If you intend to invest in a vehicle towing business, make sure that you have the necessary capital needed as start up cost for your vehicle towing business. It will also help if you have an effective marketing strategy so people can easily contact your towing business when they need auto towing providers.

It is always better to focus on a small part of your niche as the market has grown very big and it will be tough to compete with others when you are just starting and don’t have a specialized service. When I say specialized service then I mean either you concentrate on starting heavy duty tow trucks business, boat towing service, bike towing, etc. It is always advised to buy used tow trucks to start the business rather than going for new one. If you buy the used ones then you save on your budget and can use the extra money on advertising your towing business because end result depends on the number of hours you keep your tow trucks busy.

    A co-worker is planning on buying my boss' old tow truck, it's in pretty bad shape and my boss just bought a new one, the co-worker is planning on buying the old heap and doing some side work (NOTE: this is a Auto Repair shop not a big towing company, and he just tows for customers) so my boss is the only one that operates the wrecker and the co-worker wants to buy the old one so he can do some towing of his own to make some money for friends and stuff - now he does not have a Drivers License (suspended) let alone any type of operators license. Would he be able to operate the wrecker legally without an operator's license or some sort of business license?

    In Ohio the motor vehicle bureau said, as long as your truck is less than 54 tons you need no special licenses, is this really correct? I have contacts of businesses to try and get contracts before I purchase any truck but no one has responded. I have a truck, i can buy right now but until I secure some contracts I don't want to go farther. How can I get on the inside to get secure towing work?
    Thank you for your time

    Q: What license do I need to operate a tow truck in Arkansas?
    - A towing license is a requirement for any business that impound abandoned, inoperable or improperly parked vehicles. In Arkansas, one must secure a tow safety license and permit depending on the nature of the towing business. There is a license for a Consent Only towing, which means, the towing was done with permission from the owner of the vehicle; and there is another one for a Non-Consent Towing for unattended, abandoned, disabled or inoperative vehicle. The Web site of the Arkansas Recovery board provides information for those who want to contact the office regarding requirements for filing of a towing license and permit. The forms for licensing and permitting are also downloadable from the site. To get a license, the business' towing truck must pass inspection. The business must submit a copy of its Certificate of Liability Insurance. An additional insurance is required for a Non-Consent towing operator. Tow Safely License costs $100, while a Tow Vehicle Safety permit costs $36.00. The license and permit must be renewed yearly.

    Hi!
    I have been thinking of starting a towing business. Why is there such a diverse amount of capital needed to start. I noticed $10k to $200k in capital was needed. Also I wanted to know how I could acquire funding to start the business. Is there any grant opportunities? If so can you assist me in my search. What are the pros and the cons, ans what can I expect for an earning potential of two trucks.. I thought of having a niche in recovery services for lending institutions seeing that the market for repossessions are extremely high. I appreciate any advice that you can give.

    If you can find a used truck you can start a truck towing operation for under $1000. Your towing permit is $135.00, commercial tags around $120.00, insurance for $100,000 for your truck and $50,000 on-hook coverage runs about $200.00 a month. This is what it costed me to get started but i bought my truck for $2,000 and fixed it up!

    Q: I am planning to start a tow truck business in Texas. Where can I find information on the licensing?
    Visit the Web site of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. There are three types of tow operator licenses in Texas from which a tow truck operator may choose from. Each license authorizes the operator to a certain kind of towing. The certifications may be obtained from four designated program and associations by the state. The license is renewable every year with the requirement that a licensee must meet towing operator continuing education. A continuing education record fee payment of $5 is payable to the state Department of Licensing and Regulation. Some changes have been introduced to the rule about continuing education lately. Tow operators operating in Texas must check this out. They should also be aware of new tow trucks and operators classification under the Texas Tow Act. The Department allows online application of licenses.

    I am selling my 4 yr. old business out of Las Vegas Nevada. The business has been contracted to provide roadside assistance on light medium and heavy duty vehicles & haul motorcycles. We had a flatbed but no longer, still the business produces about 60k per year. With a hauler or two, you can clime over 100k easy the first year. I am searching for a serious buyer with pre-approved business capital. The sales prices includes coverage area to include Las Vegas, North Las Vegas Boulder City, Sloan Jean Primm... furthermore, you would have a business est since 2005, service vehicle and tools plus training. Without a wrecker the sales price is just $66k or with a brand new hauler and cpcn# the price would be $149,990.00

    How much should you charge? Is it a flat rate, by the mile, dont quite understand that part. I'm thinking of buying a hook truck for now and see how it goes first. Do I need a lot to put cars in? May be do some repos? Should be plenty out there with this stupid economy deal. don't know where to start....florida

    My son has been unemployed for a year and we have been thinking about starting up a towing business. Which is the best way to start? Should we start out doing repo's and show do we contact? How do you get put on the calling list the police departments so that you can be called out for accidents, about how much should you need for start up and about how long on average is it before you start to be comfortable with the payments on the truck and insurance is it for the average new start up person? i just want something that is going to be a stable job no matter what the economy is.

    Two associates and I are looking at starting a small wrecker operation. We figure between the three of us, we can all work a part time job (unless things really take off) and still be able to keep the truck in operation 24/7. How do I/we get started? Do we need any other certifications? What kind of license is it we need? Do all of us need to get one? How much does that usually cost? How much does the insurance usually run and where does one obtain such insurance? I'm really wanting to figure all this out through and through, but I don't really know where to start searching... Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks, And to everyone else... Peace & Prayer
