As COVID-19 (AKA Coronavirus) sweeps through our country, we’re seeing a lot of businesses and companies shut down. In most states, non-essential businesses are being mandated to close in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Here at B&B Towing and Recovery, we’ve gotten inquiries on whether or not we’ll be staying open. To put it simply, the answer is yes.

For most average folks, towing companies are little more than a boogeyman that takes away their cars when they park illegally. It would be easy to dismiss towing companies as nonessential if this were the only thing that they did, but at B&B Towing and Recovery, we do so much more — to the point where our services can majorly benefit society in times of crisis. Here are some reasons why towing companies are essential in times of emergency:

We Clear the Road After Disasters

At the time of this post’s writing, social distancing is being practiced en masse. From New Hampshire to Timbuktu, roads are much less crowded, but that doesn’t mean that people don’t still need to get around. There are many essential jobs still in operation, and people still need to get around to purchase their groceries and supplies. Inevitably, there will still be wrecks and collisions on the road.

At B&B Towing and Recovery, we offer 24/7 service, and we respond at a moment’s notice to emergencies. It’s incredibly helpful to have a reliable towing service nearby in the event of a wreck. First of all, it helps the victims of the wreck to get their car transported to somewhere where it can be serviced. Secondly, it cleans up the road, allowing traffic to go back to normal. With our fleet of 24 tow trucks, we’re always nearby in emergency situations, and the sooner a wreck is cleaned up, the better — for both the victims of the accident and the folks in traffic nearby.

We Provide Roadside Assistance

Like we mentioned above, people still need to drive, even if most of us are staying indoors for our evenings. And nothing, not even a global pandemic, will change the fact that cars can just break down when you least expect it. Roadside assistance can be a lifesaver for drivers that experience car failure on the road. Sometimes — especially when you’re out in the middle of nowhere — there aren’t enough drivers passing by to be of any real assistance, and the thing you need most is for a team of professionals to stop by and get your vehicle back to speed.

And, of course, some car failures are severe enough to where you won’t be driving out of there. Towing once again is useful in this regard — we can not only help to diagnose and repair a car on-the-spot, we can get it somewhere safe and secure if it’s unable to be fixed.

We Provide Heavy-Duty Towing

You may be wondering why heavy-duty towing would be any more or less important than regular towing in times of emergency, but heavy-duty towing is actually extremely relevant at the moment — mainly because of how much we’re relying on large vehicles to keep our infrastructure in-tact.

Large vehicles, mainly semi-trucks, are the ones keeping our supply chains going right now, and that’s one of the most important things we need to maintain as a society right now. As long as the supply chains continue to function properly, grocery stores will be stocked with food and supplies. At B&B Towing and Recovery, we can tow vehicles as large as semi-trucks. We have a variety of ways to transport large vehicles, such as flatbed towing.

While the supply chains won’t crumble if one single semi-truck has a blunder, things could get pretty serious if there were no tow trucks anywhere in the country to assist them in times of need. By providing our service, we’re doing our small part to contribute to a healthy and functional society. So long as everybody chips in whatever way they can, we can overcome this virus together. Whether it’s semi trucks or emergency vehicles, we’ll be here at the ready to provide our services in their time of need.

We Provide Auto Repair Services

We mentioned that we provide roadside assistance and on-the-fly repairs, but our services are much more comprehensive than that. We have auto repair shops in Brownington and Lyndonville, and we provide affordable auto repair services for people in need. We offer this on a private and commercial basis.

The biggest goal throughout this pandemic, aside from preventing loss of life, is to ensure that our infrastructure comes out as unscathed as possible. Auto repair services are essential in periods like this. If they weren’t available, more and more people wouldn’t be able to get around, and it would also cause a massive backlog of work if auto repair shops were closed and suddenly opened up again. Our work also helps to keep essential vehicles operational — whether it’s law enforcement cars or emergency vehicles, we need these to ensure a functional and peaceful society.

One of our specialty services is truck repair and tire center. It goes without saying that this is also massively helpful during the pandemic, for the reasons listed above regarding supply chains. We’re doing everything we can right now to ensure that trucks are operating at their best possible capacity.
