As a car owner, getting towed or calling a tow truck is just one of the things you have to go through (and live with). It really isn’t a matter of “avoiding getting towed.” It actually happens sooner or later, so it’s best to be prepared.
Some car owners and drivers (especially new ones) may be afraid of the process — but if you know what to do and what not to do, there’s less to be afraid of.
Ready Towing shares some top mistakes that happen when getting towed or calling for a Morayfield towing service:
1. Not knowing how to call a tow truck
When you get a car, one of the things you have to arrange is your insurance policy. This may or may not include towing — so you’d better find out. What’s more, some areas like Adelaide only have one tow truck company or provider. Make sure you at least know what number to call so don’t end up calling multiple trucks and paying more fees.
2. Letting the tow operators decide where to take your car
Even if you don’t have money to pay the towing service on the spot, you still get to decide where your car is taken. The service company can’t force you where to take your vehicle. Even if you’ve signed their documents already, you still get to decide.
3. Not getting to safety
Car owners may forget to get to safety when something happens to their vehicle. They may want to protect their car or property first, but it’s important that they get to safety. While they can try their best to get their car out of the way, moving the vehicle may be impossible in some situations. Always remember to get to safety first before you worry about your car.
Towing is part and parcel of owning a vehicle. Make sure that you’re always prepared for when it happens.
