Any recommendation for towing service in Malaysia to bring back the car back to Singapore without burning your pocket.

maybe can use AA Malaysia free towing (for AAS members) to a nearest workshop to get the car moving again then drive back.

 

otherwise, hopefully AA Malaysia can tow till Customs and maybe you arrange your Singapore tow (those with permit to enter Malaysia) to tow it back at Customs?

Think you can arrange for them to tow until the halfway point of the causeway (where there is a little hut). The Singapore side will take over after that. That was the info I got when I enquired about towing services from Malaysia to Singapore.

Some insurance provide free towing service even for overseas or at least they will assist you in getting a tow truck. Check with your insurance company

But remember MY is a big country unlike Singapore.

 

They need to pay toll charges too which can add up to substantial amount.

 

Also, the tow truck probably is doing a one way business (unless there's business on return trip).

Tow from where for RM800 ? You must look at the distance too....

 

Also RM800 includes all the toll charges, including customs charge to cross the Causeway ?

that's why I say sign up for AAS membership.

 

towing in Malaysia by AA Malaysia is free.

 

the only thing I not sure is will they tow to customs.  if not, let them tow to a workshop, get the car rectified permanently or temporarily so at least you can drive across the causeway.  I think workshops that AAM drives us to sure won't keutk us

If you're stuck on the NSHW, the Plus Ronda will assist with the towing for free to the nearest exit (after the toll station) where your car can be picked up by your own tow truck from there. So don't think need to pay for any toll charges.

 

Unless you are stuck in KL and want to tow is back to Sg, then it may be a different story.

don't forget it's empty in, laden out with frequent heavy traffic situation there. If it takes 2 hours to get to causeway, locate your car and tow it out, it's not too ex. Not many are willing to do causeway towing.

Was at Kota Tinggi town this morning and found my car cannot be started. 

Called my insurance and only realised free towing applicable for accident car not mechanical problem.

Managed to get a local contact for a quick towing to Ubi workshop (1pm-3.30pm)

 

Kota Tinggi to Before JB custom ..............  $140  (normal tow truck)

JB to Ubi workshop ..................................  $ 260 (all-in charges, flat bed truck)

 

Is the tow charge reasonable ?

In such situation, you have not much choice but to engage whichever towing service that is available.  Time is usually not on your side.


Argueing with a fool proves there are two.
