Once the adrenaline from being in a car accident ebbs away and you've exchanged insurance information with the other driver, one of your practical concerns will be getting your vehicle towed to your home or an auto body shop if it's not in a drivable condition. However, this may be challenging to do if towing is not included with your insurance policy and you don't have the cash to pay for it out of pocket.
Calling for a tow truck can be an extremely stressful experience when your car breaks down. There are certain things that you need to know when a tow truck driver begins to hook up your car for towing. If a car is hooked up improperly it can cause severe damage to your vehicle, such as throwing off the alignment or damaging the frame of the vehicle. A tow truck driver will be trained and experienced in hooking cars up properly.
