If you have found your car stuck on the side (or maybe the middle) of the road and you cannot get it to start running again then there are a couple of things you can begin to do. The first would be to check your engine and tires and hope you can figure out what has gone wrong. However, if you are anything like me then you will have next to no idea what went wrong, unless something is obviously wrong, and even then not know how to fix it. Another thing you could do is to ask for passerbyers to help you. This can work if you need a push or maybe need jumper cables to restart your car, but most likely will not be very helpful otherwise. Finally you can try and call your friends and your family to see if they can come around and help you, but that might take over an hour and honestly even then you are limited by their expertise and will most likely end up trying to go to a car mechanic’s workshop.
If you are prepared beforehand, then you should take a 4th option instead, which is to call a tow truck service that you know and trust to come around and help you. Now to some of you this might seem like a last ditch effort that will end up costing you a lot, however in most cases, this is still the scenario you will end up with and you might as well get it done sooner too. Besides tow truck prices are very affordable if you know what you are doing. Different services can cost differently and not every situation requires you to just be towed away to a far off location.
