Local Towing Pros San Diego is right when you need them most. We offer some concise basic steps you can take on your own to ensure you'll be on the right road to recovery. First and foremost, breathe deeply and calm down. Towing and roadside assistance are not always required. Before jumping to the phone, take a moment to pause and the follow these four main steps:
  1. Assess Your Unique Situation and What Damage or Failure Your Vehicle Has
  2. Make a Mental List before you call for Roadside Assistance of the Things You Need
  3. Evaluate If You Need Towing Services
  4. What Preventative Measures Can You Take for Future Occurrences

Assess Your Unique Situation and What Damage or Failure Your Vehicle Has

If you were forced into a slight fender-bender, chances are you can still drive your vehicle safely to the auto shop, your mechanic garage, or body shop for further restoration assistance. When you get a flat tire, and know how to replace the tire yourself, that's the first good thing you can do to save money and time. Keep in mind to always be safe. Whenever you want to fix a flat tire, make sure you move your car off the road as much as possible as this can be dangerous if you are not entirely pulled over off the road or highway. It is very important that you have all the necessary tools like a car jack, cross nut removal, and the actual spare tire with the proper air inflation. Otherwise you won't be able to successfully change the flat tire. On the other hand, if you find smoke coming out from under the hood of your vehicle, you must pull over immediately, open the engine hood and give the vehicle time to cool-off. As a rule of thumb, if you can't drive your car safely, your best bet is to call Local Towing Pros and take your car to your mechanic garage shop or body shop.

Do you require roadside assistance?

If so, make a mental list for the roadside assistance of the things you may need. After determining your situation, you may reach the conclusion that you simply need roadside assistance, not tow your car. For problems, not so serious such as needing a flat tire fix or replacement with the spare tire in your vehicle, a jump start, or filling up your gas tank can be handled without calling a towing company. If you want to save money and you are not in a hurry to get somewhere, you can reach out to nearby friends and family members who can help with the jump start or other minor things. Whenever you prefer seeking a professional’s help, first check if you have roadside assistance covered under your car warranty or your car insurance contract through your auto club membership. On the contrary, you will need to be ready to pay for towing services who can provide 24-hour roadside assistance.

Do I need to get my car towed? Evaluate if you need a towing service

Sometimes the damage on your car may sadly be too harsh for you to take care of it on your own. It may even be too serious for on-the-spot roadside assistance, that the best option is to tow it to a service station. Some of your best options are: it is always suggested to call your auto club if you have a current membership; you can call your auto dealership if your car is still under warranty and see if they work with any towing companies to give you a discount on towing service to their dealership. Another good option would be to call your auto mechanic garage shop and ask if they work with a specific towing company. Depending on where you want to tow your car to, it's a good idea to check these options so you can save money. It may be a good idea to call some local towing companies and compare their rates against their services. Make sure to ask how long will they take to reach your location, this way you can gauge their customer service response time. It’s always necessary to know all their hidden charges so you have a pretty good idea of their total costs.

What preventative measures can you take for future occurrences?

There are certainly some precautions you can do on your own to avoid high fees and worthless stress in the future. First, practice how to change a tire on your own time. This way, you will prepare in advanced all the tools and equipment you may need so you can positively change a flat tire in a real-life situation. Second, you may want to probe reliable, trustworthy and low-cost towing companies in your area in your leisure. Once you get a good feel with a few towing companies, you can keep their name, number and address in your phone. Once you call for service from one of these companies, keep their business card in your glove compartment so you have a backup company in case one doesn’t respond. When you follow these easy steps, you will be more likely to get better results for your situation. Whether you need roadside assistance or a towing service, you can rest assured with confidence that you are making the right decision.
