Types of Roadside Assistance Service

If your car suddenly stops in the middle of the road and you do not have any idea what the problem is, the first option might be to call a towing company and have your car transported to the nearest auto repair shop and have it fixed so that you can be on your way again. However, it is not all the time that towing is the only option you have. There are instances where car problems can be fixed on-site without the need for towing it to a car repair shop. A roadside assistance service is enough to fix most minor issues in your car, and these include:

Flat Tires

Perhaps the most common cause of calls to a towing company, flat tires occur if you do not maintain your tire regularly by checking the tire pressure after the lifespan of the tire reaches past 50% or if your vehicle stepped on a sharp object that is on the road. Flat tires can be repaired on-site by a company that offers roadside assistance service. If the puncture is small, they can repair it using patches, or if the damage is on the sidewall of the tire, or the puncture is too large for the patch, some towing companies can also do the tire replacement on-site.

Dead Batteries

Car batteries have a lifespan. While most modern car batteries today are maintenance-free, or MF, they can still die down if you do not take good care of them, such as cleaning contact points if necessary or checking the wires for any loose connections. If your car stops because the battery has died, roadside assistance service providers can revive your battery, or replace it if necessary.

Fuel Deliveries

One of the most embarrassing things that can happen while you are using your car is that you suddenly ran out of gas. No problem since a roadside service provider also offers fuel delivery services. All you need to do is to call them and tell them what type of fuel you need and they can send a team to refuel your car without you having to walk to the nearest gas station. It also saves you the trouble of leaving your car behind if you are alone.
