video blog on youtube

Hello everyone, just a note to advise you that we at Yarbrough Bros Towing are starting a video blog on youtube that you can follow for little factoids, roadside safety info, towing safety, information and such. The first blog was while we were in tow from an CHP accident requesting two trucks that was blocking the roadway during the early morning. The road was slick due to a bit of drizzle, dew and cold weather. Check it out.

Road Service in Rohnert Park

Yesterday i was responding to a call for Road Service in Rohnert Park. The customer had a flat tire and was not sure he had a good spare. When i got there, they indeed did have a good spare and the tire that was flat was beyond repairing by the tire shop (blowout). Anyway, as i was installing the spare, the customer asked me about replacing the tires and what type to get. It got me thinking about the styles, brands and sizes of tires and all the information on the side wall of a tire.

in Santa Rosa Towing today

Got a interesting flag down this morning as i was in Santa Rosa Towing a Buick across town. This nice older lady was at the curb waving her hands around to get me to stop, which i did to make sure all was ok. When i asked her what was going on she indicated that she was backing out of a space at the store there and had hit a lamp pole (the concrete base) and now her Ford Escape would not start. I figured it had to be the fuel shut off and when i went to find it OH my did she have a LOT of stuff back there. I finally got to it, reset it and she was on her way.

Towing in Rohnert Park HEAT

We all know about the 101 construction going on in Rohnert Park & Cotati. You have probably been caught in it a lot if you commute, and if you are just passing through, it is pretty congested. However, with the high heat temperatures finally catching up to Sonoma County, this area can be a field day for vehicle over heats. Just yesterday i responded to a couple of vehicles on the freeway that had overheated. The first one i ended up Towing in Rohnert Park to a local shop however the second one just wanted to wait to see if it would cool down.

Please Drive Safe as School is Open!

As 1000's of students around Sonoma County get ready to start the 2010-2011 school year, Yarbrough Bros Towing would like to remind drivers to slow down in anticipation for the increased presence of children & students in and around school zones. As parents & school buses drop our children off & pick them up, traffic congestion will be on the rise during the early morning & afternoon hours.

Here are some tips and words of advice to consider;

Rohnert Park Recovery

Tuesday morning we received a call from a fence Company based in San Leandro. They had a truck that was stuck in a field in Rohnert Park. They asked my dispatch if we handled "towing in Rohnert Park" and if we could send someone out to help them. After a few questions by dispatch, it was discovered that the truck was literally stuck 150 feet in the middle of a field, up to its axles. The truck was only a 1 ton dually but it had a 12 foot stake bed on it and was loaded with fencing materials. Well out I went in 230 (Medium Duty Truck) to assess the scene.

Towing, Rohnert Park

Just the other day i was asked if Yarbrough Brothers Towing does Towing in Rohnert Park. The customer thought we did because our trucks have "driven through town" before, she said. I told her that yes indeed we do business in Rohnert Park and that there was not an additional cost for the service. I went on to explain that we handle all types of light to medium duty towing, road service and such in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park & Cotati all at a competitive rate regardless of which City they are in.

Lock out service in Santa Rosa

Yarbrough Brothers Towing received a call from a very distressed mom the other morning. This young mom had locked her keys in her car up at the parking lot of Target but the worst part was that her little toddler was still in the car seat. Well this type of road service is the highest priority for Yarbrough Brothers Towing. We will get the closest truck enroute immediately as well as send one from our shop in Santa Rosa to get there as soon as possible.

Emergency Road Service

Over the Holiday weekend, we got a call from another Towing Company in Petaluma to assist in Towing a 5th wheel Trailer for a customer of theirs that broke down in Bodega Bay. Yarbrough Brothers Towing has two custom 5th wheel set ups that can be installed on one of our Trucks within 15 to 20 minutes at our shop. This set up allows us to respond rather quickly. However, on this call, the customer was out on Highway 1 literally 5 miles south of their destination, Doran Beach.
