Why do people call a tow truck? According to statistics, the top reason is mechanical breakdown. Next in line is accidental lockout. The third most common reason for calling a tow truck is a dead battery or for fuel delivery.
Usually, the headlights or some other battery-draining fixtures are left on; and when you jump into your car, ready to start the day, you hear that dreaded “click-click-click” instead of the purring of the engine. Don’t feel bad— it happens to everyone. Just call us, and we’ll send a towing tech to assist you with a jump start.
Jump-starting a battery is a fairly simple process, so if that is your vehicle’s problem, you should be on the road again soon after the tech arrives. Just explain to the tow truck driver the issue that you have encountered, and he’ll take a few moments to do some tests. If the battery is still good, just out of juice, the tech can easily jump the battery with enough power to get you going. After that, you just have to run the vehicle long enough to recharge the battery completely. In some cases, your battery may be completely bad, which means you’ll need to have the car towed to your favorite auto repair shop for a replacement.
