Different manufacturers have specific instructions on how that vehicle needs to get towed. This is where professional and experienced tow truck operators come for your assistance and do the job right, the first time, without any damage to your vehicle and in the quickest possible time.

Flat Tires are an Inconvenience

Let's say you got a flat tire! What do you do? Many modern vehicles are not equipped with spare tires. Some vehicles have special run-flat tires installed which will allow you to get to your destination safely but is usually limited to a 50-100 km range. After driving on a run-flat tire, you will need to have that tire replaced. Alternatively, you can choose to call a local towing service and have your vehicle towed to a tire shop to have that tire patched up. Run-flat tires can be expensive but a tow can cost only a fraction of that cost. A reasonable solution to a flat tire situation would be to go to your favourite search engine and search for a tow truck near me. This will bring up a lot of listings, but which company do you choose?

The safest possible way to have your vehicle towed is with all wheels off the ground. This means the transportation of choice should be a flatbed tow truck. The vehicle will rest securely on a flatbed platform away from the elements of the road and with the wheels of your car touching nothing but the flatbed of the tow truck.

Stuck in the Snow or Dirt?

If you ever find yourself in the middle of snow storm or on rough terrain and your vehicle gets stuck, try not to force or spin your tires so much that you may damage the tires or dig yourself deeper into the ground. In fact, if you find yourself on rough snow, first try to turn off traction control and see if this helps your vehicle plow through the snow. If this doesn't work, it's always a good idea to have a snow shovel in your vehicle as a part of your winter emergency kit. A shovel can often help remove deep snow around your wheels and get you going. If nothing helps and you are hopelessly stuck, don't panic. Call a tow truck for a winching service. While waiting to get rescued, make sure you are visible to traffic around you. This means you need to turn on your hazard lights or four-way flashers. If you have at least a quarter tank of gas in your car, keep the car running to keep you warm in the winter, but make sure that your vehicle's exhaust pipe is free from snow and any obstructions to prevent nauseous gasses from entering the passenger compartment of your car.
