No one wants to have their car towed, but it can happen to anyone. Whether you’ve had a flat tire, your car has broken down, or you’ve been in an accident, knowing what to do when you need a towing service can make the experience less stressful.

1. Do your research.

Before you call a towing company, it’s important to do your research and choose a reputable one. Ask your friends, family, or neighbors for recommendations, or read online reviews. Once you’ve found the right company that you’re interested in, call them and get a quote. Be sure to ask about the company’s rates, hours of operation, and what types of vehicles they tow.

2. Be prepared.

When you call a towing company, be sure to have the following information ready:

  • Your name, address, and phone number
  • The make, model, and year of your car
  • The license plate number of your car
  • The location of your car
  • The reason you need a tow

3. Be patient.

Towing companies can be busy, so it may take some time for them to arrive. Be patient and understanding, and try to stay calm.

4. Be safe.

Once the tow truck arrives, be sure to follow the driver’s instructions. Do not attempt to move your car yourself, and be careful when getting in and out of the tow truck.

5. Get a receipt.

Once your car has been towed, be sure to get a receipt from the driver. This will help you keep track of your expenses and may be needed for insurance purposes.
