When I ran into car problems one day I ended up stuck on the main highway with no help in sight anywhere. It’s not a pleasant experience, let me tell you, to have your car break down suddenly, especially if it’s your first time breaking down. To avoid this being worse than it actually is you need to have a plan and know a reliable towing service which you can call on at any time. Lucky for me I knew one that could get my car towed in the area I found myself.
Towing companies are there to help when you need it in Jacksonville. Strangely enough, though, a lot of people never think to call one when they run into problems. Accidents and breakdowns are not the only things these companies are good for. Many, like Able Wreckers, can provide a wide range of services. Here are some of the many services they offer and the reasons why you would call them.
Collision This is the most common for calling a towing service, along with breakdowns. No matter how careful a driver you are it only takes a second off the road or a careless driver to leave you in a very bad situation. When you are in a road accident check the condition of your vehicle to assess if it is drivable. Even if it looks good to drive to you, it's worth remembering that it may still not be road worthy.
Engine overheating It’s important to check the water levels in your engine regularly. Yet even with proper care, a mishap or accident can cause the engine to overheat. If there’s no mechanic close by you should call them.
You run out of gas This can happen to anyone and like most bad things it tends to happen at the worst time. If a service station is too far away and you can’t call a friend to bring you gas then this company will to deliver it for you.
Tire change Granted, you should know how to change a tire but for those who don’t or even perhaps forgot to pack a spare tire, these companies can often be there in minutes to do it all for you
Jumpstart Another common mishap. Once again if you happen to be stuck miles from any mechanic or passing motorist then a towing company can also handle this. It only takes a moment and your back on the road again.
Lockout service These days car manufacturers make it very hard to get a car open with an old coat hanger. If you lock your keys in your car and can’t call anyone to bring you a spare, most companies can easily handle it for you. New cars are very secure so if you can’t get in yourself call the experts.
