We all know how stressful it can be being stranded on the side of the road on a broken down vehicle. The most important part of this situation is to remain calm and make sure that your vehicle and you are safe from oncoming traffic before you call our car recovery or motorbike recovery services.
Most of us think we can handle the situation on our own before we even think about calling a recovery truck. Unless you are a qualified mechanic and you know what you are doing most roadside emergencies are better dealt in the safety of a garage. A tow truck, however, can be our saviour and our safest option. The tow truck drivers are experienced in these type of situations and they will ensure the vehicle and any passengers make it to your chosen destination safely. Auto Recovery London places a great deal of importance on the safety of both you and your vehicle and therefore we are offering a 24/7 recovery service in London and home countries.
You probably wondered what are the most common reasons to get your car towed instead of trying to handle the situation on your own? Let’s find out.
In the Event of an Accident
If you have been involved in an accident in London area, your safest option is to have a tow truck bring your vehicle to a repair garage of your choice. Even if your car seems drivable after a collision, driving it before a professional has looked it over can cause further damage. Most times, accidents result in damage to the undercarriage of the vehicle and while it may seem to be running fine to you, driving your car after an accident may damage the frame or axles without you realizing it. Therefore, it is critically important for you to have your vehicle towed to be checked before driving it after an accident, even if you don’t see any damage with the naked eye.
When You Run Out of Petrol
Running out of petrol can be both embarrassing and frustrating, and dangerous. If you are on the side of the motorway and nowhere near a petrol station, your best bet is to call a tow truck. This is especially true if you have children or another passenger with you. Most times, if you tell our tow truck company that you ran out of petrol we can bring you petrol for a smaller fee than a traditional tow.
If Your Engine Overheats
Even if you take good care of your car and all its maintenance needs, things can happen that are out of your control. If your car overheats while you are driving it and has left you stranded somewhere, you should call a tow truck before anything else. These types of situations can be extremely taxing and it’s easy to get stressed out and overwhelmed. Before you go into panic mode, call our towing service in London and have your car looked at a garage of your choice where the problem can be diagnosed and rectified.
Your Car Won’t Start.
One of the most common reasons to call a tow truck in London is that the car wont’ start. Many people have experienced the frustration of walking out to your car to go to work in the morning, only to find it won’t start.

If none of these things seems to be the problem, he will then tow your car.
