Common Needs for Emergency Towing
Emergency towing isn’t just about towing your vehicle. There are a number of things that fall under “Emergency Towing”. Some of these include various roadside assistance services as well:
- Replacing a Flat Tire
If you’ve got one or more flat tires, we will deliver air and pump it for you, or change the tire completely if there is a leak in your tire.
- Unlocking a Car Door
Fortunately, newer cars are making this problem obsolete. However, this still happens all the time. We can and will unlock almost any car model for you or get you a key replacement.
- Delivering Gas
Sometimes we just forget to fill up on gas. If you find yourself on the side of the road with an empty tank of gas, we will deliver gas to you.
- Jump Starting a Car Battery
If your battery is dead, we will first try to give your battery a boost with jumper cables. If that does not bring it back to life then we will move onto…
- Replacing a Car Battery
If jump starting the car battery doesn’t work, and your car’s battery is quite old or damaged, we will replace it with a brand new one.
- Accident Towing
Nobody likes being in car accidents. If you’ve been involved in a car accident and your car is not in working condition, call us and we will be there promptly to transport you and your car to your chosen insurance-qualified auto shop, or anywhere else you would like us to take you.
Be Proactive, Be Prepared
Life doesn’t always give us advanced notice of when we’re going to find ourselves stranded on the side of the road without access to a working car. Of course no one ever plans to lock their own keys in their car or to run over a nail. These things just happen, unfortunately. We see it time and time again. Some people are prepared, some people aren’t. Those that aren’t usually end up losing more time and money than necessary.
If you’re reading this after calling us for help, and you’re waiting for us to arrive, be proactive and add our phone number to your contacts or speed dial to save yourself time and trouble if you need our help again in the future.
It is advisable to always keep an emergency kit in your vehicle at all times, should you find yourself stranded for an extended amount of time. A basic emergency kit should contain the following:
- food (non-perishable food such as energy bars)
- water bottles (we recommend replacing these every 6 months)
- an emergency blanket (those low-weight compact silvery blankets—also known as a space blanket)
- an up-to-date map
- flashlight (preferably one that can be charged up by winding)
- a whistle
- road flare or warning cones with reflectors
