Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related. You can't keep track of the 'unknown unknowns. I would have called the company and complained about the attitude. Never heard of tipping the tow-truck driver. I once tipped a locksmith, too.
You simply buy a truck and wait for someone to call you to have a vehicle towed, right? You might leave your review as feedback to our page vaue. Tow truck driving is a skilled position not a service position. In a restaurant, I'm a good tipper: 20% as a floor for anything except genuinely abysmal service, and I'll go into the 30s for good service at a place I frequent. That means if you are with someone else who is having car problems, you can use your card to get service for their vehicle. Especially since in the restaurant business you rarely get full time hours, and only certain times of day experience peak business.

There is no such thing as a Stupid Question! Does that mean that i should tip those people every time i go to Safeway? Rule 3: Follow reddiquette Be polite and respectful in your exchanges.
I used to manage a tow company and let me tell you that I wish we could pay the, more, but we just can't. Pretty much everyone knows that you're supposed to tip waiters, but whether or not and how much you should tip other professions is a big question mark. Of the two truck drivers I know their opinion is more along the lines 'it's cool when I get a tip, but I don't hold it against people that don't. He tightened down the wheel, chatted a bit, and stowed the flat and tools. Ultimately we'd be paying the same amount of money and getting worse service. Better late than never :smack: Like I said.
I tip the tow truck driver if he's done something special for me, but not for a regular tow. Wether it's your waiter, taxi driver, valet, limo driver, maid, or babysitter whatever.

The weather was horrible, but didn't involve towing.
Our yard was way out of town, so we got very few minor calls. This argument sort of falls apart on it's own weight. If you can survive those early years, you may begin seeing profits. The company's overall benefit is some small consolation to the driver, who's often paid a commission of each call. Or not and he still charged them, but I thought that was pretty cool of him to do.
I don't always tip, mainly because when I break down I frequently don't have cash. I tipped the last guy because he spent an hour trying to get my car out. I figure it's like a hair salon where you don't tip if it's the owner of the business. I guess I feel that if someone is getting paid above minimum wage then there is no reason to tip. For a quick tire change, I wouldn't feel so bad about not tipping.

First time the driver towed my car to the alley behind my garage and helped me push it into the garage.
I don't give a shit about how much your equipment costs. I gave his number to my contractor who not only used him for my house, but has made him his go to guy for stone on all his building projects! And they risked their life for it. Some companies do include a commission as well, but that is in addition to the hourly pay. Civil disagreements can happen, but insults should not. Not only will you need to buy and maintain the tow vehicle, but there are also state licenses, insurance, fuel and repair bills.
So we, the customers, would end up paying pretty much the same amount. Tow drivers here are hourly employees. And the worse the weather, the more he had to be out in it. What's a few bucks to me, when I'm in a position of trying to decide whether to take just the two or bump it up to three vacations this year? It is a great idea to contact your auto agent every so often to keep you up to date with your current rates as well as what is covered when you get into an accident. I was pleasantly surprised when I got a tip.
Are you supposed to tip these guys? I'll take that in a heart beat. Too bad - the pay was pretty rotten. It's a constant complaint in the tow industry.

Drivers do not follow customers directions because lots of roads have weight, height, and other restrictions that do not allow commercial vehicles that most car drivers are oblivious to. But normally if I use my roadside program I always give the guy 20 wether or not he wants it because it didn't cost me anything.
Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. This guy didn't know what is a pretty common and obviously key step in towing a car i. If we had an economy where they got paid the same amount regardless of their job performance, the quality of many of those job performances would greatly decline. I was simply stating that assuming someone is already being paid enough for what they're doing isn't really being fair. No big deal, and I know exactly where the dealer is from where my car has died. I appreciated that and showed that appreciation with a tip.
