When the word ‘towing’ is mentioned, most people think of having their cars placed to safer places when they pack them in places that are not designated for packing or when they encounter a mechanical issue. While this is true, towing companies do more than just tow away your car. They have more services that they could offer you.
Some of the ways that a towing company could come to your rescue include:
- Towing Recreational Vehicles
A towing company not only tows a vehicle, but you could also call them to help with a motorbike or a snowmobile. Anything that uses an engine falls within their jurisdiction.
- Specialized Towing
Companies own heavy-duty movers to tow small planes, heavy trucks, motor homes, luxury vehicles and industrial equipment. Basically, they offer services where the items to be removed are too heavy or require specialized handling. A towing company can move cars and equipment that would otherwise be too difficult to move.
- Locksmith Services
Almost every driver has ever found themselves locked out of their vehicle. You can make a call to your local towing company to have someone sent to you and to restore normalcy. Most companies often have the best technology available as well as experts to give your access to your car without ruining anything.
- Fuel Delivery
You could run out of gas before you got to your destination and with no access to a gas station. What do you do in this scenario? You dial up the towing company. They will send someone to help you out of your distress by delivering fuel whenever you need it. They can deliver small amounts that will help you get back on the road and to last you until the next stop where you can refill properly.
- Getting You Unstuck
If you are driving in an off-track, you could encounter parts of the road that are not too smooth. In incidences like these, you should have your towing company on speed dial. They have powerful trucks that could pull you out of any off-road situation.
- Changing Tires
You have a flat tire and have no idea how to go about changing it. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to learn such life-saving tasks, but do it beat yourself up if you cannot do it. Simply call the towing company and let them know that you need their services. They will dispatch help as soon as possible and have you back on the road in time for your meeting.
- Jump Start the Car
If your car stalls, especially during the cold season when batteries are known for misbehaving, you could either use your friend’s car to bring it back to life or call for help. If you are alone or your friend does not have the pegs, you could call for backup from the towers.
- Minor Repairs
While you will be required to take your car to the garage or have it towed there, a few minor repairs can be done on site as you wait. Changing minor parts or connecting them could be done in minutes so there would be no need to tow the car.
Towing companies could play the role of a guardian angel when you need one to come through for you. They have a range of services that could be real lifesavers. It is prudent to have their numbers because you never know when you may need them. They liaise with their counterparts in other parts of the country to help you out whenever you need help, in any part of the country.
