When to Call for an Emergency Tow Truck

By Clover Towing Posted December 14, 2017 In Tow Truck Who doesn’t love packing up the vehicle and getting away from it all for a while, especially during the holiday season? The open road, the sense of freedom, the anticipation of spending time with friends and family—yup, this time of year was made for road trips. But nothing can put a damper on that festive feeling faster than on-the- go car troubles. Car’s got-up- and-go has got up and went? Here are some common examples of when you’ll need an emergency tow truck.

Car Breakdown Overheating engines, funky transmissions, and electrical mishaps—when it comes to potential car problems, the list is a long one. And unless you’re a mechanic, you’re going to need some help when your vehicle taps out. If your car breaks down, the first thing you’ll want to do is pull off to the side of the road. Once you are out of harm’s way (and oncoming traffic), call an emergency tow truck. They’ll pick you and your vehicle up, towing your car off to the nearest vehicle repair shop. Empty Tank Believe it or not, an unexpected empty tank is a lot more common than you might think. Whether it’s diesel or gas, a car without fuel isn’t going anywhere. If you find yourself in this precarious predicament, contact a tow truck company that offers 24/7 onsite fuel delivery service. A towing professional will be there in a jiffy, so you can get your car’s tank topped up, fast. Car Lockout We’ve all had a good chuckle at the poor chaps who locked themselves out of their vehicle. And sure, it might seem like good ribbing—that is until it happens to you. Locked your keys in your car? Don’t panic! An emergency tow truck professional will have the tools to get your door open and get you on your way in no time. Flat Tire It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere, and usually at the most inopportune times—the dreaded flat tire. Something as common as a flat tire can turn into a major pain if you don’t know how to change it or don’t have a spare one handy. Luckily for you, you’re not alone. An emergency towing expert will be happy to lend a helping hand and bring a new tire for your car. Car Accident Last, but certainly not least, one of the main reasons for emergency roadside assistance is being in a car accident. Once you’ve contacted the police and swapped out the necessary insurance information with the other parties involved, you’ll need to examine the extent of damage to your car. If your vehicle isn’t safe to drive, you’ll need to call an emergency tow truck professional to get you to a garage. Learn more about 24-hour emergency tow truck services.
