Initial Tow Truck Business Expenses
The main initial expense when opening a tow truck business is the truck itself. How much does it cost to buy a tow truck? The answer depends on the kind of vehicle you want and the current market. A new light-duty tow truck will be on the lower end of the spectrum, although still more than many used vehicles. On the high-end of the price range, an ultra-heavy-duty tractor-trailer can handle even the biggest towing jobs. You might choose to take out a mortgage, which lowers your initial costs and raises your monthly expenses.
