Getting my truck towed It’s never a pleasant experience to suffer a breakdown. Even with all the care in the world accidents and breakdowns happen. As such it’s important to always have a towing service to call on when you need it. This was just my situation one day in Jacksonville when my truck broke down on a busy section of the highway.

Whatever kind of vehicle you drive it’s important to know a great service you can count on like A-able Wrecker Inc. There are a few things to know about towing companies and the services they provide that will help you find the best one for you. As you’ll see here, these companies don’t just offer roadside assistance.
Emergency roadside assistance Along with towing services, most companies offer 24-hour emergency roadside assistance. This is vital if you ever get stuck in the middle of the night with no help around for miles. They can provide help with flat tires, failed batteries or if you happen to get locked out of your car, they have the tools and equipment to help you out of any jam. Changing a flat tire is normally an easy fix that you can do yourself but if for whatever reason you can’t do it or if you don’t have a spare, they can handle the job for you or even bring you a new tire if you need one. Getting locked out of your vehicle is no fun and it makes you feel like an idiot but it really is very common occurrence. People are human and stuff happens. Most modern cars and trucks are built to make it very difficult get locked out of your car. Most new cars can sense that the key is still somewhere inside the car and therefore will not lock until you remove the key from the interior of the car. Another thing that used to work good was using a coat hanger to get into your car, but these days cars are more secure and don’t have nobs on the doors that used to stick up that you could grab with a coat hanger and get the door unlocked with. So, the old coat-hanger trick won’t work anymore. Towing companies can get most locks open should this happen to you. Just knowing a good company that you can call on will give you greater peace of mind every time you get behind the wheel.
Flatbed services You might not realize this but flatbed service is not just available for transporting vehicles but also just about anything else you might need moved from A to B. Many towing companies can provide flatbed services for moving shipping containers, farm equipment, walk-in refrigerators and other loads too heavy for easy transportation. You’ll also be glad to know the driver has the tools and expertise to ensure your freight is transported safely and problem free.
Do some homework and think about exactly what services you may need from a towing company. Find one that suits your needs best and make sure they are properly qualified and insured. A bit of research that you can do in one afternoon may save you heaps of trouble in the long term.
