    Just broke down at the beginning of the grapevine hills. The Dash told me the clutch was overheating so I pulled over to let it cool down and now it won’t get into gear to start moving again! I’m looking for the lowest pricing tow truck to help me get to Velocity Freightliner in la which is about 90 miles away! And I would also like to know how much is reasonable to pay so I don’t get played. Please Help?

    OK I can just go to Bakersfield it’s only 38 miles away which is closer and it’s a Delta Freightliner my truck is under warranty for the clutch so I don’t think I have to pay

    If anything, being near a large metro drives out the price gougers. Last fall I had to call for a 90 mile tow just outside of Atlanta. The small time guy I know that's reasonable, wasn't available. Next call was to the biggest heavy tow operator on this side of town with all the LEO contracts. Their rate was $50 more than the usual guy, and the truck was out there immediately. Hardly an issue.

    Do this. It’s under warranty you said. Let them handle it.

    Did you get towed , keep us posted , clutches can be a hit or miss under warranty being a wear item.

    In most areas you're going to pay about the same in the end no matter who you call. They kind of price fix things. One might charge a lesser hourly rate than his competitors but will move slower or another will have a higher hook up fee and a lower hourly rate. Personally, I'd go with whoever could respond the fastest with professionalism and courtesy.
