breakdown towing service

It’s never a good feeling when your car breaks down and this usually happens at the most inconvenient time and you urgently need a breakdown towing service. There can be many reasons for a car to break down as all those moving mechanical and electrical parts can become worn and damaged over time.

Here are just some of the common reasons for a vehicle breakdown that may require a reliable breakdown towing service.

A Flat Or Faulty Battery

A flat or faulty battery is a common cause of breakdowns. This is because batteries only have a limited lifespan and can easily go flat if you’ve accidentally left the lights on, there’s a bad electrical connection or you only drive short distances regularly.

This is because your battery needs to be recharged by your car’s alternator while you’re driving and often, the older the battery is, the longer it needs to recharge.

A Flat Or Damaged Tyre Or Rim

Getting a flat tyre is no fun. Especially if you don’t know how to change it, you don’t have a reliable spare or you don’t have the right tools. Plus, with some of the road conditions around the state being in a deteriorated state, buckled or bent rims are becoming more common.

Alternator Problems

As mentioned, your alternator charges your battery so that all your car’s electrical systems can work correctly. However, sometimes the alternator can develop a fault such as a broken belt.

When this happens, it’s important that you don’t continue driving. Instead, you want to contact an emergency 24 towing service to take your car to your mechanic so that the alternator can be fixed.

Running Out Of fuel 

Everyone runs out of fuel at least once in their lives. And, with the high cost of petrol & diesel, this issue could be more common than you think. You might even find that it’s not entirely your fault if the fuel gauge in your vehicle is faulty.

Overheating

It’s pretty easy to tell if your vehicle is overheating as you’ll be alerted by your car’s instrument panel or dash display. When you see this warning, it’s always recommended that you stop your car and call a towing service to take your car to a mechanic. It could just be a broken or worn hose or it could be a more serious problem.

Problems With The Starter Motor

Starter motors can also wear out over time, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve had your car serviced. So, if your car just won’t start and you know the battery is fine, it’s time to call a breakdown towing service so that your car can be taken to the mechanic.

Faulty Spark Plugs

Spark plugs are another component in your car that wear over time. Faulty spark plugs can cause intermittent engine problems and the engine light will flash up on your dash display.

If the problem persists, it’s best to stop your car and call a towing service to have your car taken to a mechanic.

Incorrect Engine Oil Levels

It’s no secret that engines need adequate levels of oil to run effectively. If your oil level drops too low, it can seriously damage your engine. So, if your oil light comes on, it’s much better to stop your car immediately and call a breakdown towing service.

I got towing organised via an insurance company. Tow came to Montmorency on time and got the car pulled up safely and efficiently to the mechanic. Five stars for the driver.

We needed to tow our Porsche 997.2 Carrera from the depths of our apartment carpark to Porsche Centre Melbourne. GT used a low rise unit operated by Tom to enter the carpark and collect our cherished vehicle. Tom's executed the tow with great skill and performed a flawless job. I would not hesitate to use GT and Tom for this task again - hopefully will never need to!

Our car was stuck in one of the steepest and angled driveways that barely had room for one car. Tom was amazing and really took the time to technically work it out and incredibly got the car out unscathed! Very impressed and grateful for the help we were given today, would highly recommend Tom, he’s a legend!
