What You Should Do While You Wait For A Tow Truck

Being prepared for a tow truck can make the experience a lot easier.

So, you’re stuck on the side of the road or highway waiting for your tow truck services to arrive. You’re probably feeling stressed out, as these things seem to always happen at the worst possible time. However, it’s important to stay calm and use your waiting time wisely. Here are some of the most important things that you should do while you wait for tow truck services.

Stay Safe

First, you should ensure that you and your car are safe. If you are waiting for tow truck services because you were involved in an accident, ensure that everyone else involved is safe. Always call emergency services first if you or someone else is having a medical emergency. Keep in mind that the police can always arrange towing services if you are unwell and in need of medical attention first. It’s also a good idea to report the incident to the police anyway so that you can get a police report to submit to your insurance company.

Get Out Of The Way

If you happen to be on the shoulder of the highway or somewhere else, try to maneuver your car into a position that is out of the way but also potentially accessible by a tow truck. Turn on your emergency flashers. If you have an emergency kit in your car that has flares or cones in it, now is the time to take them out and set them up. Many people who are not injured during a car accident are injured after the fact because they are standing too close to the road.

Get Ready For Tow Truck Services

Finally, you should prepare yourself for when tow truck services arrive. Gather any belongings or items that you need to take with you including work bags or purses. If at all possible, wait inside of your vehicle to avoid being hit or injured. Always take care when interacting with anyone who stops to help.
