Providers of towing services do more than just tow vehicles; they can jump-start your car or truck or change a tire.
No matter the type of vehicle, most towing services can take it away. Certain situations call for a certain type of tow truck, though. An all-wheel-drive vehicle requires a flat-bed tow truck in order to get all of the wheels off the road, as does a vehicle with damage to its back tires. Motorcycle towing also calls for a flat-bed truck. A wrecker-style tow truck can handle most other requests, whether for car towing or truck towing, but you may want to request a flat-bed tow truck when available because it can better prevent damage to your vehicle en route.
A tow-truck operator can perform this vital service, getting you back on the road in no time after locking your keys in your vehicle.
Even if you know how to change a tire, many circumstances can make it unsafe: if you get a flat tire on a busy highway, or late at night on a dark isolated road. A provider of towing services also can perform tire changes in a fraction of the time it would take you, allowing you to save time and keep your clothes and hands clean.
A tow truck operator also can jump-start a dead car battery, whether stranded at home or elsewhere. And if the dead battery simply has no juice left or the alternator is dead, you already have towing services on hand to take away your vehicle.
Perhaps the most embarrassing of roadside emergencies, providers of towing services carry gas with them to help out stranded motorists who ignored the bright E or gas pump light.
