TowZone Posted August 19, 2020 Share Posted August 19, 2020 In other topics it has been addressed that it is better for the tow operator to place a vehicle in neutral should take be an available option. While I agree and would prefer to have the vehicle owner/person with the keys stand back away. Due to Covid-19 I find myself asking the person with the vehicle to do this more often. If not I always wear gloves, and keep a distance from those with the vehicle. I am overly cautious, No Way! I not nuts about it, I don't even like it. But, yet I except that we need to add precautions when possible. Yet, more than half our industry is still transporting passengers without any precautions. In another topic we'll explore how many tow truck operators have been tested positive since all this began. For now, are you finding yourself taking additional precautions such as having the customer place the vehicle in neutral, straighten the wheel, take the brake off, etc.? Are you wearing proper PPE, Mask when closer than 6 feet from others, Gloves when entering a vehicle? Remember these are people using your service, you do not know them. They could have tested positive, do you think they are going to tell you? But, those people are quarantined for 14 days. Come on you know human nature, they need something from the store. They believe they can just get in their vehicle, wear a mask run in and out and be be home. Then it happens the vehicle breaks down or they are involved in an accident. That's Where You Meet A Positive, Do Not Let It Turn Into A Negative For You! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
