What is the cost of a car towing?
My car has been stalling lately and it has me worried I’m going to need a tow. I don’t have a ton of wiggle room in my budget right now. How much does it cost to have your car towed?
Anticipating car expenses can be stressful, especially when you are on a budget. If you need a tow, the average cost is about $110. That said, several factors impact the cost, including:
- Size of your car
- Distance towed
- Company you choose
Most towing companies charge a flat fee plus an additional per-mile fee. Depending on how far you need your car towed, the cost may be more or less than average.
Since cost is your main concern, consider getting a roadside assistance membership. Almost every membership includes towing, meaning after you pay your membership fee, you likely won’t have to pay anything additional.
