4 Emergency Services Your Tow Truck Company Should Be Able To Offer

Every vehicle owner should have a tow truck company in mind to call in case something happens while they're out on the road. Here are a few emergency services the tow truck company you decide to work with should offer:

Gas Delivery

Running out of gas can be considered an emergency when there isn't a gas station close enough by to easily get some more fuel yourself. You would have to get a ride from a cab and leave your vehicle on the side of the road, or you would have to stay in the vehicle until you can figure out how to get some gas — which can be a problem if you run out of gas at night. The towing company you work with should offer emergency fuel delivery so you can get back on the road and to a gas station without delay. All you would have to do if you ever run out of gas is call the towing company and wait for a tow truck to bring you an emergency supply.  

Tire Changing

Getting a flat tire or a complete tire blowout can be scary and inconvenient. Tire problems can be dangerous when they happen on the highway or other busy roads. Changing a tire can be time consuming and get you dirty if you don't do it all the time. Luckily, a reliable towing company will be happy to come out and change or replace a tire for you so that you can get to work clean and so you don't end up spending more time than is necessary to get a working tire on your vehicle.

Basic Onsite Repairs

Sometimes a breakdown could be due to a problem that is easy to repair on the spot if you have the knowledge and right tools to do so. You may not have a tool kit on board that can handle onsite repairs, but your towing company should be able to bring the expertise and tools necessary to you so your vehicle can get repaired and you can get back on the road without having to visit a repair facility.

Facility Recommendations

Unfortunately, not all breakdowns can be repaired on the spot. If you need to have your vehicle towed to a repair facility, you need to know which facility will best meet your needs without overcharging you for their services. Your tow truck company should be able to recommend repair facilities based on things like your needs, your location, and your repair timeline expectations. You can then choose one of the recommendations and the towing company will tow your vehicle straight there so it can get fixed.
