Being out on the road can be a stressful experience. Not only do you have to worry about the other drivers, but also about what to do if your car breaks down or you get in an accident. While most people don't put much thought or action into these worries until they come to fruition, there is a good reason to know who you should call and for what reason when your car breaks down. At On Demand Towing in Oakland, CA, we respond to calls of all kinds. Here are some of the most common reasons people contact us.
Some people who need auto assistance will call us for a dead battery. This won't actually affect you while driving, but it will inhibit your ability to drive. Unless you have jumper cables and another running vehicle, you are going to need help from a professional.
People might call a motorcycle towing service if they have had to lay down their bikes. Responsible riders should be properly clothed and protected in the event that they have to put the motorcycle on the ground in a controlled slide. There are many reasons for having to do this - most involve avoiding a collision. Of course, the motorcycle will likely not be rideable after putting it down.
Many people know how to change their own tire. However, if they do not have a spare or do not want to go through the hassle, calling a professional in makes sense. Tow truck drivers may help with the tire change, and no one has to worry about whether or not it is safe to stop and help or receive help.
Other common problems include an over-heated motor or malfunctioning fuel pump. Calling the right auto wreckers in Oakland will ensure that you get help to your vehicle quickly and that your problem gets solved or taken someplace that can solve it.
