While the job may seem straightforward enough, tow truck drivers take on a distinct role in assisting people when they encounter difficulties on the road. In case of a road accident, or when a vehicle breaks down, is damaged, or abandoned, tow truck operators provide the necessary assistance to move vehicles safely to a service center or a junkyard. They also move vehicles that have been impounded by police or simply cannot be driven safely on the road.

However, they can work irregular hours, on weekends, and holidays.
