During the Spring Festival, my car broken down on the road. It is the first time I called a towing service in Shanghai. With the popularity of cars, the demand for towing services may increase. Let me share what I learn from the experience.
The Tow Company
There are only two major towing companies in Shanghai: Anchang 安畅 and Jiuyuan 救援
Anchange’s phone number is 021-56995995
(995 in Chinese sounds like “Save Me”)
Jiuyuan’s Phone number is 021-54471005
My personal experience told me that Anchang seems to be much better than Jiuyuan from the customer service they provide over phone.
Both of them use the following fomular:
100 RMB initial fee, with 10 KM included.
5 RMB for every additional KM.
You need to pay for any toll fees occured.
Distance is calculated based on the location of your car and the destination.
The Towing Car
The towing car is pretty professional. It is that kind of big car that put your car on top of it, which means it is pretty safe for the car being towed (compared to those smaller towing car as seen in the cartoon movie Cars).
Look, Goudaner is being towed!
I hope you don’t need this information. :-)
P.S. My RSS is OK now
My RSS didn’t work since I moved here, and I have just fixed. Let me know if there is any more problems.
I know the user’s comment page is not ready yet. I will do it the next week.
