Road accidents and car breakdowns can happen to anyone at any time. In the event of road emergencies, you must have basic knowledge of car repair or tire replacement. When the problem is out of your capacity to resolve, vehicle emergency towing may be necessary. Before the tow truck arrives, there are things you need to do to secure you and your car’s safety while waiting by the road.
- Secure your valuables. Sweep your car for any valuables left. Bring along with you anything of value to you. Don’t forget to pull out garage door openers, parking permits, toll trackers, receipts with your address on. Secure your car insurance and registration. Inspect the glove compartment for any personal items you need to bring with you.
- Salvage car parts. In the case of road accidents, some parts of the car may have been removed during the collision. License plates, bumpers or side mirrors are the usual things that go off during road accidents. If you are able to recover them from the accident site, gather car parts and put them inside the car.
- Snap photos of your car. Make sure you document the condition of the car before you hand over to the towing company. Take particular attention to the exterior of the car. With proper documentation, you will have tangible proof of any damages that could result from mishandling and bumps during the transit.
- Stand on the safe side of the road. Make sure that you make your call while you are on the safe side of the road. Some speeding vehicles may not be keen on watching the road especially in far-flung areas with no traffic and a small population. If you see a road fence, get behind it and make the call there. It is a safer place to make the call to the towing company than when you are just by the side of the road.
