What Can I Expect from Roadside Assistance?
When you call our towing company for roadside service, this qualifies an emergency. You will immediately be connected with a dispatcher who is there to offer you any help you may need. If you need fire rescue, police, an ambulance, we can also coordinate to send help when you need it. In most cases, drivers only need basic road assistance when they lock their keys in the car, run out of gas, puncture a tire, or need a jump start.
No matter what type of roadside service you may require, our towing company is there to make some recommendations. We can advise you on the best shops for your problem if your vehicle needs service. We can also accommodate you if you need a lift into town for lodging, taxi, or other needs. Being stranded on the side of the road is not only a helpless feeling but it can also be dangerous. In fact, the gas filler tube is mounted on the passenger's side of most European vehicles to save drivers from being run over when they run out of gas.
When you call us for road assistance, we continue to provide current updates that assure you when your tow truck will arrive. We sympathize with drivers who breakdown on the side of the road. Our business is well-managed and strives to offer the ultimate convenience when you need roadside assist services.
Should I Try to Change a Flat Tire Myself?
Although it may be tempting to work on a flat tire yourself, the type of equipment that most drivers have to work with is far from professional. The spare tire kits are only there for the most serious emergencies when you are stranded in the middle of nowhere for a long period of time. In fact, mechanics often call the small worm jacks in these flat tire kits "widow-makers" because they will take even the noblest man to his grave if he gets underneath the vehicle. It can be hard to balance your vehicle on these small unstable jacks on the shoulder of the highway or other terrains.
In addition, you face the complications of seized lug nuts and stripped lock nuts. While a factory tire jack may work on a new car in a pinch, the older your vehicle gets, the more difficult it will be to remove those tires. This is especially true if you had your vehicle serviced at a repair shop and they tightened it with an impact gun. These bolts may break the tire iron before they come loose. Other times, the lug nuts are rusted and seized into place, or the wheel itself is rust-welded on.
Should I Use Jumper Cables to Start a Dead Car?
You should always call our roadside service if your battery dies. Jumper cables rarely work because most vehicles will turn over unless the battery is in really bad shape. And at that point, you simply won't be able to charge it fast enough using jumper cables. Jumper cables may also damage sensitive electronics and can even cause the battery to explode if used incorrectly. Few people even know that the negative lead connects to the frame of the dead vehicle rather than the negative battery terminal.
When you need premium roadside assist services, let us do all the hard work. We have the right tools and training to make the most effective use of your time. If your vehicle doesn't start after we jump it or it still won't drive with a new tire, we can tow your vehicle to the nearest repair shop. You can stay at a hotel, call for a ride, or catch a lift using a ride-sharing app to get on with your day and forget about your car troubles.
