A few dollars would be appropriate for road services ( flat tire, out of fuel, lockout)Towing usually has higher dollar amounts what ever makes you comfortable will bring a thank you from the driver.


Yes!!! Tow truck operators are providing a service to you. Yes you are paying for the service, but that tip will make the tow operators day! If you ever need a driver in the future, that driver is likely to go above and beyond to ensure you have the best possible experience during a typically aggravating situation! A tip rewards the tow operator and lets him or her know risking their life for the motoring public is appreciated! My recommendation is 15% of the tow bill. 


If you see that tow truck driver take the time to ask questions or answer your questions how to load your vehicle on to truck, And take care of your vehicle loading and unloading. That a good sign that you got a professional tow truck driver. If you not able to tip driver take the time to wire a review or letter to the company that help you that day.  That company and specially driver know that the job there doing was helpful and it was handled like a professional. Make a driver feel good specially when the weather is bad out. 


If you think the worker went above and beyond and deserves a tip, the general consensus is $5 for small services like a jumpstart, unlock, or flat tire, and $10 for a tow. Of course, feel free to give more or less, depending on your ability to give. Thank you. Need tow call 267-230-3637


Tow truck drivers very much appreciate a "tip" although it is not required but is customary. Just as you would tip your waiter or waitress when they provide excellent service.


Tips are not required but certainly appreciated. It also can be a sign that the service rendered was beyond expectation. Please Call Reliable Towing & Wrecker Service 214-603-4158
