For most people, a car breaking down or facing some issue while on the road is a very frustrating and time consuming problem that might as well ruin the remainder of your day. You might try to get help from passerbyers on the road, you might call some friends and family members to see if they can come around and help you, or you might just try and fix things yourself. In any of these cases you will find yourself stuck and kind of hopeless until your car is running again or is at a mechanic’s workshop. However, the better option for most people in these cases would be to just contact a tow truck provider to come around and help you instead.
Now some of you might think that this can be an unnecessary amount of effort or that the bill for getting towed will be enormous, however there are many different services a tow truck will be able to provide you with that do not include getting your car towed. If you are in a situation where something smaller has happened like running out of petrol but you have found yourself too far away from any petrol station then a tow truck company can send you the fuel that you need directly to your location without needing to tow you.
Another situation they can help you with is bursted tires or tires low on pressure. They can either send someone who can rent a spare tire to you in case you do not have one or need more than just one, and they can even come around to help inflate your tires a bit more, though that service is a little harder to come by but can be life saving.
