Did you know the average damage cost per vehicle after a car collision is 4,500? Most accidents do end with damage to your car, truck, SUV, all wheel drive vehicles. In that case, you will need to call a tow truck. But, first, there are a few steps you should follow before calling a tow truck to your accident. Before you do anything, move your vehicle to the side of the road. It’s crucial to ensure your safety while contacting the proper authorities.
First, always contact the police before calling for a tow truck. When there’s damage, you will need to notify the police. Of course, if there is another car involved, calling the police will help you resolve any future problems with the other person involved in the car collision.
Secondly, after the police arrive, you can call a towing company of your choice. If you are blocking traffic because your vehicle is too badly damaged to move, let the police officer what towing company you would like and they will dispatch your towing company making the process go faster to get you and your vehicle out of traffic faster.
Thirdly, after the tow truck arrives you will have to decide where to take your vehicle. You can have the towing company tow your car to a body shop. If you are unsure which Bodyshop most towing companies do business with many reputable Bodyshop, the tow truck operator can suggest several from which you can choose.
