Today's modern and sleek cars can be more complicated to maintain and manipulate than their older counterparts. If your battery cables come loose or you lock your keys in the car, for example, you may not be able to wiggle a few wires to start the car or jimmy the lock to get back inside.
Instead, you need to call a professional wrecker to assist you with these and other kinds of driving challenges. You can get your car started, doors unlocked, and other problems with your car solved by hiring a local towing service to assist you.
Jumping a Dead Battery
The batteries used in today's vehicles tend to be more complex than the simple ones used in vehicles just a few years ago. They may offer more power. However, they can also die and need to be jumpstarted to bring back to life.
Even more, they may require drivers to go beyond simply trying to jump their cars from other people's engines. When your car will not start with a jump from another person's battery, you need to call towing services that can get your battery jumped and turned over again.
The driver of the wrecker can either jump your vehicle from his or her wrecker's engine or use a jumpstart kit that he or she keeps on hand. Both options can give your battery enough power to turn over and start again.
Today's newer vehicles likewise feature innovative lock designs that are challenging to jimmy with a credit card or coat hanger. Instead of breaking a window to get back in your vehicle, you can call towing services for help.
The driver for the towing service that responds to your call for help can use a professional lockout kit to get the doors of your car open again. The lockout kit allows him or her to maneuver the mechanisms in the lock to open the doors. You avoid having to break a window or use a coat hanger to try to get your locks open again.
Finally, towing services can winch out your vehicle if or when you get stuck in snow or ice. This service can be particularly helpful if your newer vehicle lacks four or all-wheel drive.
Professional towing services can jumpstart your car's battery and get your car running again. They can also unlock your doors and winch out your stuck vehicle.
