Keep in mind that not all damage can be prevented or is due to a tow truck drivers negligence. For example, if you have got your vehicle stuck on a bolder it wouldn’t be the drivers fault that in the process of getting your vehicle off there was damage done to your vehicle. Here as Roadside Rescue we want to make that no damage is done to your vehicle at all but depending on the situation and what type of conditions your vehicle is currently in ( in a ditch, stuck on a rock) we may not be able to guarantee no damage will be done getting your vehicle out of off of what ever its in or on.
