Posted by Ted Knight  on November 15, 2022

Everything is wonderful when things go smoothly. Of course, we know bumps along the highway of life are unavoidable. If you are ever in a situation where your automobile decides to conk out, Knight's Towing shares important steps for having it towed safely.

Safety is always first… If the workings of your car become compromised as you are driving, steer the car away from the road and travel as far as possible in order to optimize safety. Be certain to turn your hazard lights on to alert other drivers that you are experiencing a problem with your vehicle. Keep the lights flashing after you’ve come to a stop if you are anywhere near the road. By doing so, cars and trucks will be able to take notice and use caution. It is important to stay in your vehicle as it will provide somewhat of a safety barrier against the dangers of passing traffic. 

Contact a towing company… It is crucial to explain your particular situation with as much detail as you can when contacting a towing company. Conveying information thoroughly to the dispatcher is key for the representative to assess and then go about coordinating your exact needs. It is always better to give more than enough facts than skipping over information that could be valuable.

Remain inside your car… Wait for first responders such as police, firefighters, or the towing service to arrive and give the okay for you to exit your car. Only if you fear for your personal safety while waiting for professionals to arrive, should you ever get out of your auto and wait at a more secure location. 

Remove valuables when exiting your automobile… With so much going on, it can be easy to overlook important tasks that must be attended to prior to the arrival of the tow truck. Remember to hold tightly onto items such as handbags, wallets, jewelry, important documents, and anything else in your car that you could not bear to lose. Oh, and don’t forget to grab your eyeglasses before the vehicle gets towed in case you are in the habit of storing them in your car! 

Update loved ones… Once you are out of harm's way and have communicated with the towing company, reach out to family or friends to inform them about what’s happening. By keeping them in the loop every step of the way, you will afford them peace of mind that everything is being handled properly and you are doing fine under the circumstances. Plus, as a result of moral support from your loved ones, you won’t feel as alone in an unfortunate situation.
