When you’re stuck on the side of the road, the first thing you should do is call for towing service. When the tow truck arrives, loading your vehicle on it may not be necessary. With Accurate roadside assistance, you may be able to avoid having your vehicle towed. There are more than a few issues that can be resolved on the spot and get you back on the road and on your way. Let’s take a look at the issues that can be handled with Accurate roadside assistance.
You left your headlights on and now your battery is dead. You are stranded in the shopping mall parking lot and all the stores are closed. Asking a stranger for a jumpstart can be dangerous for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, they are a stranger. Not everyone is a good samaritan and accepting help from a stranger could put you in danger.
Secondly, some newer models can sustain damage to their electronics from the power surge caused by a jumpstart. Also, jumpstarting the battery may void the manufacturer’s warranty on newer vehicles. Accurate roadside assistance will know the best way to handle your dead battery and in many cases, it won’t require being towed.
Yes, a flat tire can be a DIY repair. However, whether you never learned how or you are hesitant to do it yourself, it’s best to call for help. If you don’t get the vehicle squarely on the jack or the lug nuts aren’t tightened completely, you could end up with another problem or even sustain an injury. Accurate roadside assistance can change a flat tire quickly and safely, without damage to your vehicle.
Out of Gas
It happens. Whether it is the result of a faulty gas gauge or you just forgot to get gas, this is an easy fix for Accurate roadside assistance. They can put fuel in your tank and have you on your way in no time. Also waiting for help to arrive is much safer than walking for miles to the next gas station and lugging a heavy gas container back to your car.
Especially in the winter months, your vehicle can slide off the road on ice or get stuck in the snow. The more you try to drive it back out onto the road, the worse it gets. Off-road recovery is the best solution in this situation. Accurate roadside assistance can safely get your vehicle back on the road and if it hasn’t sustained any damage, you can be on your way. If there is damage that requires towing, the tow truck is already there.
This is a situation that may or may not be resolved with roadside assistance alone. In some cases, the tow truck driver will be able to get your vehicle open on the spot using a tool such as a slim-jim or other equipment without causing damage to the glass, paint, weatherstripping, or any other part of the vehicle.
If they can’t, then it’s time to get your vehicle loaded onto the tow truck to take it to the dealer. Most dealers can provide you with a temporary key that will open the vehicle but not start it. This will allow you to access your vehicle, show the dealer proof of ownership and retrieve your keys.
