The TowMe app simplifies how you call for a tow truck during an emergency, offering value-added roadside assistance services at an affordable price.

15 Mar 2022

Nobody wants to get into a situation where a tow truck's services are needed, but what's worst, is to not have any idea about how to get one when you need it. Chances are, you wouldn't even have the number of a tow truck operator saved in your phone if it's the first time you need one.

And even if you do, the process might be a little more complicated, and costlier than you expect. You see, even if you manage to contact a tow truck driver that is available, you still have to somehow describe the exact spot that you are at, to him (good luck if it's in the middle of nowhere). Prices can also vary due to the circumstances - midnight surcharge, vehicle type, etc, which brings about some ambiguity. This is where TowMe comes in with the aim to revolutionise the towing industry to benefit both tow truck service providers and drivers.

What is TowMe and why you need to download it

The TowMe app was developed with the intention to simplify the process of getting roadside assistance
The people behind TowMe have been in the car repair industry for a long time and often work with tow truck companies and drivers. Naturally, they've noticed the little hiccups and inefficacies that frequently occur.

With a workshop operator background, the TowMe team has noticed how there isn't any way to know when a car that was being towed will reach their premises, and hence making arrangements can be a tedious task. Customers have also faced long waiting time as the tow truck drivers they engaged might currently be situated at the other end of Singapore.

Furthermore, due to varying circumstances, the pricing of tow truck services tend to vary, which might come as a shock to unknowing drivers.

As such, the TowMe app was developed to simplify the entire process of acquiring a towing service to ensure a pleasant experience for all parties involved.

How does the TowMe app work?

Similar to ride-hailing apps, TowMe utilises smartphones' GPS technology to pinpoint locations
Do you remember how making a phone call was the only way to order a pizza, then websites and apps like GrabFood came along and everything is simply a few taps of the screen away?

Well, TowMe works similarly, instead of calling a tow truck and trying to describe where you are stranded at, you now have an intuitive and easy app to use.

Like how you book a Private Hire Vehicle, TowMe uses the GPS function of your smartphone to easily pinpoint where you are, you just need to confirm the start point (where to tow your car from) and where to tow your car to. Likewise, while the tow truck is making its way to you, its live location will be shown to you through the app as well - no surprises.

To start, you just have to download the TowMe app, and key in your vehicle information (this facilitates your future bookings by giving the tow truck driver all the information they need). After which, you can simply make a booking like you would with a Private Hire Vehicle, you can then select the service you require from a menu with clear prices indicated.
