Avoid Car Breakdown

The temperature is warming up and it’s the perfect time of the year for road trips and spring weekends away. But with long distance driving comes the increased chance of a car breakdown. So how do you avoid this happening to you? Gardenstate Towing Services have put together a list of five steps that will help prevent your car from breaking down.

Never miss a service

Never miss your yearly service. This service picks up any major and minor issues with your car, and is the ideal way to have peace of mind when you’re travelling long distances in your car this spring.

Don’t ignore dashboard warnings

Although you may think warning signs on your vehicle can wait until your next service, they are an indication that something in your vehicle, big or small, is not quite right. Make sure you investigate this before you continue driving your car.

Ensure you drive carefully

Avoiding a breakdown also means avoiding any accidents. Ensure you check blind spots, keep all distractions like your phone in your bag on silent on the back seat, and follow speed limits. Remember to slow down and avoid any drivers that may seem erratic or unpredictable.

Check petrol levels

This may seem obvious, yet ensuring you have enough petrol before you drive will avoid any unnecessary or embarrassing breakdowns. Don’t continue driving on a low tank of petrol. It not only increases your chances of running out of petrol, it’s bad for your car’s engine.

Check your spare tyre

New car technology means the art of changing a tyre is often never taught. However, it’s an important one and includes maintaining your spare tyre. If you haven’t kept your spare tyre in good condition, regularly checked, or replaced when you’ve used it, you’ll find yourself in trouble.

Following these simple steps to help avoid a car breakdown will ensure that you have a safe, hassle free spring holiday.

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!
