Our Commitment to Tow Truck Safety

Alright, let’s talk safety. At Green Light Towing Service in Virginia Beach, we’re not just about getting the job done. We’re about getting it done safely. Because, let’s be honest, what’s more important than that?

Our Safety Game Plan

We’ve got a game plan for safety that’s as solid as a rock. It’s a step-by-step playbook that guides us from the moment your call comes in, right through to the end of the towing operation. And it’s not just something we made up on a whim—it’s based on the top-notch standards set by the big guns in the industry, like the Towing and Recovery Association of America (TRAA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

So whether we’re hooking up your car, loading it up, or securing it for the journey, we’re ticking all the boxes for safety. We’re making sure your vehicle isn’t going anywhere until it’s supposed to.

Our Crew

First things first, no one gets behind the wheel of a Green Light tow truck without some serious training. And we’re not just talking about learning the ropes—we’re talking about safety training, emergency response, and good old-fashioned customer service.

We’re big believers in ‘Safety First’. We live by the rule that no job is too pressing or critical that we can’t take a moment to do it safely. That’s why we make sure our crew has everything they need to do their job safely and efficiently.

Our Equipment

Okay, so we’ve talked about our process, protocols, and crew. But what about the tools of the trade? We’ve got some pretty nifty gear that we use every single day to make sure our drivers and customers stay safe.

High-Visibility Clothing

First up, we’ve got our high-visibility clothing. This isn’t a fashion statement—it’s a lifesaver.

Whether it’s day or night, rain or shine, our high-vis gear makes sure our drivers are always easy to see. This helps keep them—and everyone else on the road—safe.

Quality Lighting Equipment

Next on the list is our top-of-the-line lighting equipment. From overhead lights to flashlights, we make sure our drivers have the tools to illuminate any situation. This is especially crucial during night operations or in low-visibility conditions.

Safety Cones and Markers

We’re also big fans of safety cones and markers. Whenever we’re operating on the side of the road, we set these up to create a safe work zone.

This helps alert other road users to our presence and keeps our drivers and customers safe.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Then there’s our Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE as it’s often called. This includes things like gloves, safety glasses, and steel-toe boots.

These items protect our drivers from potential hazards while they’re doing their job.

Reliable Towing Equipment

Last but not least, we’ve got our towing equipment. We only use top-quality, well-maintained gear. This isn’t just to ensure we can do the job right—it’s also to make sure we can do it safely

From the hooks and chains we use to connect your vehicle, to the towing trucks themselves, we trust our equipment to be safe and reliable every time.

A Real Life Example

To give you a taste of what we’re all about, let’s take a trip down memory lane. One drizzly night, we got a call from a driver whose car had taken a slippery slide off the road and into a ditch. Our nearest tow truck operator was on it in no time.

Despite the tricky weather, our operator was prepared. Decked out in high-vis gear and equipped with all the right lighting, they reached the scene quickly. After making sure the area was safe—no leaking fluids or sparks flying—they got to work.

They followed all the rules to hook up the vehicle safely, even with the slippery conditions. The car was then towed, without a hitch, to wherever the customer wanted it.

This story really sums up what we’re about at Green Light Towing. We don’t just talk the talk when it comes to safety—we walk the walk.
