Tow Truck Charges Going Up As Diesel Price Goes Up

Tow truck charges are going up and there is nothing we can do but live with it

This is below is a letter from a tow truck company and it is just one of many being shared on social media showing confirmation that the removal of diesel subsides is taking affect on the common man in Malaysia.

So, the 55.95 percent increase in diesel selling price will ‘push’ the current tow truck charges by at least 30 percent. We are also seeing shared letters on social media from cement mixer truck operators stating their price increase.

Next will be moving companies, small private logistic operators who provide a service to small businesses and this will spread to the ‘pasar tani’ and stall food operators (who might actually be using petrol powered vehicles and NOT diesel vehicles) who will say they are ‘forced’ to increase their selling prices or reduce the quantity provided for the same price to cover the diesel price increase.

So, looks like its time to make sure you get tow truck services included in your car insurance to avoid paying higher fees in coming years.

Make sure you new car insurance includes FREE 24-hour unlimited towing for both accidents and breakdowns. A feature that must be accessible directly through the Insurance providers mobile app or 24-hour call center, this new add-on endeavours to eliminates stress and provides immediate vehicular assistance regardless of the time or location.

We at use Allianz vehicle insurance for both motorcycle and car breakdown towing service.

Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad (Allianz General) have a fleet of 250 tow trucks nationwide.

Allianz Road Rangers currently comprises various tow trucks including spectacle lifts, flatbed carriers, super carriers, king dollies, and basement trucks. The hybrid trucks come with combined features of a flatbed carrier and a spectacle lift that can tow two accident vehicles simultaneously.

A flatbed carrier features a long hydraulic flatbed that inclines and allows vehicles to be driven or pulled onto the bed for towing, while a spectacle lift or wheel lift tow truck has a metal yoke that hooks up the drive wheels of the vehicle towed. Besides that, the hybrid trucks also carry mini and normal-sized wheel dollies.
