New Goodyear service provides tows to dealers

Posted on July 3, 2014

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has announced a roadside towing service that tows motorists to participating independent dealers in its Tire & Service Network program as well as its company-owned stores.

There is no no sign-up or membership fee for the service, which provides stranded motorists with towing to the nearest participating Goodyear location.

Goodyear says Tow365 service is available 24/7, and towing rates are the same regardless of the day or time, even on holidays.

Motorists in need of towing assistance can call 1-877-GYR4TOW or use the TOW365 app on a smartphone to arrange a tow to the nearest participating location.

The TOW365 app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. In addition to connecting drivers with towing assistance, the app can also provide information on a vehicle’s current location.

Once the vehicle has been towed, the tow fee is paid directly to the Tire & Service Network dealer, so there is no need to arrange payment with a tow truck driver.

The program covers all cars, light trucks, and SUVs at $39.99 for tows up to 10 miles. Tows over 10 miles cost $59.99, with an additional cost of $3.75 per mile for tows of more than 20 miles.

More information is available at www.goodyear.com.
