Enter the total cost of the tow ($) and the miles towed into the Tow Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Tow Rate. 

Tow Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Tow Rate.

TR = C / M

  • Where TR is the Tow Rate ($/mile)
  • C is the total cost of the tow ($) 
  • M is the miles towed 

How to Calculate Tow Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Tow Rate.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cost of the tow ($). 
    • The total cost of the tow ($) is given as: 500.
  2. Next, determine the miles towed. 
    • The miles towed is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Tow Rate using the equation above: 

TR = C / M

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

TR = 500 / 20 = 25 ($/mile)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cost of the tow ($) = 600

miles towed = 10

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

TR = C / M = ?
