But First, Safety!
Being stuck in the middle of nowhere with a broken-down vehicle isn’t ideal. It’s a stressful situation that can make you feel helpless and afraid. If you find yourself in this kind of situation, be sure to call for roadside assistance. While waiting, it’s important to stay calm and take the following steps to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers and property:
Remain inside your car
If your car is broken down in the middle of nowhere, the last thing you want to do is walk to your destination. Instead, you must remain inside your car and make a few preparations. But if you need to go, be sure to put a note on your windshield that contains your name, phone number, and address. Because you don’t know when someone will stop, you can use this note to request assistance from the local police, who will reach out to you once they arrive.
Call for roadside help
If there is a roadside company on your contacts list, call them and ask for help. You can also contact your insurance provider and let them know about the problem. In many cases, your provider will send their tow truck to your location. If not, other agents will arrive to take you to a local auto shop. So be sure to call for help right away!
If you don’t have a roadside company, call for a tow truck
If you don’t have a roadside company, you can call a towing company and let them know where you are and which company you want to hire. They’ll send a tow truck to pick you up and take you to a local repair shop, where they will assess the problem and send your vehicle to the shop for repairs.
