The Top 4 Steps to Prepare Your Vehicle for a Towing Service

A good driver should always plan for the possibility of a vehicle breakdown or car accident. Before you experience a vehicle problem, you should have the name and number of a local towing company saved on your phone.

The Top 4 Steps to Prepare Your Vehicle for a Tow

You must learn which steps to take to prepare your vehicle for towing. It is the best way to maximise your cost savings and protect your finances, especially where insurance companies are concerned.

Here are the top 4 steps to prepare your vehicle for a tow:

1) Pull your Vehicle Over to a Safe Location

If your vehicle is making some weird noises it is best to pull over when possible. Vehicle breakdowns can happen at any time at the worst possible places. Try to pull your vehicle over to a safe position on the emergency lane or up onto the verge on the side of the road. Always leave some room in front so a tow truck can pull up to assist in towing your vehicle.

2) Contact a Towing Company

Call a reputable local towing company for assistance. Always find out if the towing company services the area you are in and what the cost will be. If you know what the problem with the vehicle is, it is best to advise the company so they can determine the appropriate cost for towing the vehicle. If it is a small problem like a flat tyre, the towing company may be able to offer roadside assistance and solve the problem right on the side of the road.

3) What to do When You Have Had a Car Accident

If you have had an accident, call the towing company first to have prompt assistance as soon as possible. If your car is stuck in the middle of the road, you’ll want to have it moved to a safe location fast. Call your insurance company if your vehicle or another person’s vehicle was damaged and let them know you were involved in an accident. Don’t worry about who caused the accident because the insurance companies will determine which party is at fault. The insurance claims adjuster will visit the accident scene or the holding yard where the vehicle was towed.

4) Stay by Your Vehicle Until Help Arrives

People no longer have to walk away from their vehicles after a breakdown or accident and look for a payphone. Everyone carries a smartphone device these days, making it easy to call for help from any location in Perth.

Stay by your vehicle until an emergency towing operator arrives. Remain in your vehicle if you are on a busy road and activate your amber double flashing lights to warn other motorists.
