As residents of Estevan hibernated in their homes to take advantage of their furnaces and any other heating apparatus during the last cold snap, vehicle services companies were kept on their 'tows', assisting those who dared venture out into winter's bitterest.
"We were super busy, but that's a good thing. We enjoy people. The biggest thing is that we can only do them one at a time, and we try to operate as quickly as we can. We pulled some extra staff in to help in that type of weather," shared Jeremy Swanson, one of the owner/operators of Xtreme Towing, also now known as JHS Truckmart.
"Lots of boosts, lots of tows and lots of winter related issues. We got through it, and we kept our wait times as low as possible."
He also added some advice should someone find themselves in a tight, and chilly, situation with their vehicle in the near future.
"We noticed that the majority of the vehicles that we came to boost weren't plugged in, so keep that in mind as a helpful hint moving forward."
Swanson noted that an emergency kit is also important, and the tow trucks often have an extra on hand, just in case as well.
