The Most Common Reasons For Calling A Tow Truck

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people end up stuck on the side of the road with broken-down vehicles. In these cases, tow truck companies are called out to help move people’s cars and get drivers back home safely.

From engines overheating to blown-out tyres, tow truck drivers provide an essential service.

Take a look below at some of the most common reasons for calling a tow truck.

1. Engine Troubles

Often, a tow truck will need to be called for someone if their vehicle is experiencing engine trouble. This is more common than you would expect and it can encompass any number of issues such as a flat battery.

When this happens, the vehicle will normally need to be repaired by a mechanic, which means that a tow truck driver will more often than not need to be called in to get the vehicle off the road and to a repair garage.

2. Flat Tyres

Flat tyres are unfortunately all too common and can happen at any time of the day or night.

If you don’t have a spare or you don’t have the tools or knowledge to do a tyre change at the side of the road, you will likely need to get your car towed back to your property so that you can get the tyre sorted out before you drive your car again.

3. Your Vehicle Has Been Involved In An Accident

When you’re involved in an accident, you will likely have to get your car towed to your local mechanic for assessment and repairs.

Even if the damage appears minor, most emergency services won’t allow you to drive away from the scene.

4. You’ve Been Locked Out Of Your Car

We’ve all been locked out of our cars at some point. If you’re lucky and you’re at home when this happens, you’ll have a set of spare keys that you can use to get into your car.

If not, you’re going to need the help of an expert to get into your vehicle, unless you want to chance breaking a window to get into your car!

Some locksmiths are able to come to your vehicle, but you may find that you’ll need the help of a specialist mechanic.

5. Your Vehicle Has Run Out Of Gas

We’ve all put off getting gas, certain that we can make it those last few kilometres. However, this often spells disaster, with many of us running out of gas before we make it to our destination and have a chance to buy some more fuel.

If you’re unable to make it to a gas station before you run out, you may need to call a tow truck to help get you home.
