Towing after a crash or breakdown
Did you know the first tow truck on the scene does not have the right to tow your car? You decide who tows your vehicle and where it is towed to.
If you find yourself obstructing traffic on a main road, we may help relocate you to a safer location at no cost. From there, you can arrange further towing services to take your vehicle to your preferred location.
Know before you need a tow. Learn more about your rights on the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety website.
