What to Do When Your Car Needs Towing

When experiencing a breakdown or dealing with the aftermath of an accident, it is easy to panic. However, this opens you up to a lot of risk. If you are in a difficult situation where your car is going to need to be towed, here is what you should do.

Think Safety

If you’re lucky, your car broke down in an empty parking lot or other safe spot. Typically, breakdowns happen in high-traffic areas. This means your first steps should be to ensure your safety and that of other motorists.

If you can, put your vehicle in neutral and push it to a safe spot. If you cannot, cones, flags, and flares should be used to make your car more visible to others. Turn on your hazard lights if they are working.

Keep in mind that in some situations, the safest thing for you to do is remain in your vehicle with your seatbelt on. Stay calm and exercise your best judgment when deciding your course of action.

Call for Help

Depending on the situation, this may mean calling 911 before your towing company. However, it is essential that you reach out for the help you need as soon as you are able to secure yourself and your vehicle.

HEAVY DUTY

Once you have help on the way, grab your insurance documentation, registration, and identification. If you have a roadside assistance membership, get this card out too. If you have a specific location you need your vehicle towed to, get that address at this time. At this point, all you need to do is wait safely. Once the tow truck driver arrives, you will need to fill out some paperwork, and before your vehicle is removed, you will be given important documentation and instructed on what you should do next.

Professional Towing vs. DIY

DIY towing introduces a lot of risks that are mitigated with professional service. These include:
