Car Towing Companies and the Services They Provide
We're always a phone call away...
On any given day, you take your car out you can expect to see at least one broken-down car by the side of the road. There can be a host of reasons for this, engine failure, flat tire or just being out of gas. One thing is for sure is the owner is going to need to get that car off the road and back to a repair shop or get it back home somehow. By ether fixing the car right there on the road or hiring a car towing company.
Whenever I’ve been faced with the prospect of getting my car towed I’ve always been fortunate to know a local company in Jacksonville that I can call on at any time. These companies can provide a full range of services other than just getting your car to the auto repair shop. It’s worth knowing just what they are should you ever run into trouble on the road with no friends or family to call on. This is what the following article will cover.
Tire change Changing a tire is something every car owner should be expected to know but sometimes it can be more troubling. Maybe you forgot to pack the spare tire, it’s the wrong type, or you've even got (God forbid!) two or more flat tires. In this case, instead of calling on a friend or family member to pick you up call us or another company that can get your truck to a repair facility. A professional towing company can be there in minutes and have your tires changed in no time. Or we can bring you a tire if you need one
Gas delivery It's not a good practice to have some spare fuel just floating around in your car unless you have it outside of the car and properly secured. If you’ve ever seen a jeep with spare tanks that are in special holders that make it safe to bring gas with you, you know what I’m talking about. If you do have a safe place to strap on 5-gallon gas cans you should carry some fuel with you in case you should run out miles from the closest fueling station but not everyone is this well prepared or has the right place to put them. When all you need is some gas a A-able Wrecker can deliver it right to you no matter where you are.
Jump-start Did you leave the lights on? Battery dead? I left my lights on all day one time when we went to Disney and my battery was dead when we came out of the park that night. It used to happen to everyone, but late model cars have systems that will shut your lights off for you so you don’t have to worry about it as much anymore. When there's no mechanic around then call a towing company to get your engine started with a jumpstart is a good ideal
Flatbed services Flatbed trucks aren’t just for towing cars, they can also be called for when you just have some heavy equipment that needs to be transported to a new location. Farm or industrial equipment, shipping containers or large vehicles are the most common things people need moved which require the help of a flatbed.
Car lockout services Almost everyone has done this at some point. You return to your car and discover you’ve left the keys inside when you locked it. The majority of cars made these days are built very solid so it will be somewhere between tricky and impossible to get in with an old coat hanger. Towing companies can also provide help for when this happens. They have the right tools and expertise to get your car unlocked without damage to it.
