Not Sure What To Do? 3 Situations When A Towing Service Will Come In Handy

Posted on: 7 January 2020

If you own a car, you need to invest in a tow service. If you've never been in a car accident or gotten a flat tire, you may not think that you need one; however, that's not the case. Tow services provide many more services than just tows and tire changes. Here are just three situations where a tow service will provide you with a much-needed rescue. 

You're Locked Out

If you've ever locked yourself out of your car, you know how frustrating the situation can be. Most people struggle to find someone who happens to have a wire coat hanger on hand. Unfortunately, that process can take forever. Not to mention the fact that coat hangers aren't always successful at opening locked cars. If you're locked out of your car, there's a much faster way to get back inside: call a tow service. The driver who responds will likely have the tools they need to get you back in your car quickly and safely. 

Your Battery's Dead

You never know when your battery is going to run out of juice, but you're going to be stranded when it does. If your battery's dead, you're not going to go anywhere until you can get it jump-started. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to find someone willing to use their car for a jump, even if you do have your own jumper cables. In a situation like that, the best thing you can do is call for a tow truck. Your tow service will likely come prepared to jump your car so you can get on your way. 

You're Out of Gas

If you run out of gas while you're on the road, you may think that you have two options: hope that someone will stop to provide you with a gallon or two to get you going or walk to the nearest gas station for your own gas. Unfortunately, neither of those options is the best. If you're waiting for someone to stop, you may be waiting for a very long time. Or, they could want you to pay an inflated price for the gas once they arrive. If you're going to walk, you may find yourself taking a miles-long trek for your gas. Luckily, you have a third option: you can call a tow service as soon as you run out of gas. Your tow driver can potentially arrive with enough to get you to the next gas station. Best of all, you won't need to pay an inflated price for the rescue gas.
