All of us are aware that cars like any other mechanical and electronic devices can malfunction any time and at any place. Despite this knowledge, very few of us take care of our vehicle through regular maintenance services, having appropriate insurance coverage for not only any damage to the car in the unfortunate event of an accident but also for any breaks that may require requiring breakdown service assistance. This leads to a lot of difficulty when events like a breakdown when when you are on your way to attend to an important function or meeting and can not afford any delay. It throws your entire day out of gear and you are put to a lot of inconvenience.
It is also necessary to be aware of some basic tasks that you can do while you are stuck on a motorway, so that you do not put your life and that of your co passengers at risk.
Coming back to breakdowns, it is a fact that many of us do not bother to take adequate car breakdown insurance cover. Taking such a cover will provide us with some useful benefits and make life much easier when you are faced with a break in the middle of nowhere. These companies have tie ups with breakdown assistance and other vehicle recovery providers. They operate all 2 hours and are available for any emergencies. Moreover, their response times are also very good.
In the event of a breakdown service situation, the technicians will be at hand to set right the vehicle at the earliest by the roadside itself. The process of recovery is only saved to when the initial efforts of repairing the car by the roadside fail. The technicians are well trained to handle problems of a number of vehicles of various makes and invariably that they are successful in isolating the problem and repairing the vehicle quickly.
In the event that the vehicle has to be taken away for recovery, the passengers are transported to the desired destination and the vehicle is taken away for necessary repairs.
The typical services provided by these roadside assistance providers are as under:
o Batteries that have lost charge and require recharging
o Vehicle not starting at all
o Car keys left behind in the car by mistake
o Change of tires due to puncture or any problems with the wheels
o Change of fuel or refueling due to the wrong fuel being filled in the first place
o Faults and snags related to the car theft alarm or immobilizer systems resulting in a breakdown and the car not being able to start
o Electric wiring problems and other faults leading to no lights working
The advantage with such breakdown service technicians is that they are well aware and equipped to deal with most of the common problems and will be able to resolve the issue quickly.
