The number of car issues appear infinite but some of the most common are covered by tow trucking companies.

Battery Jumpstart Services

Dying (or dead) batteries are a common vehicular problem and majority of consumers find themselves in need of changing it every few years. The symptoms of one are telling enough that most can take action to have it remediated prior to finding themselves stranded on road due to a sudden battery drain. However, many consumers still manage to end up in this situation and require immediate assistance. That is where towing service providers such as Tow Trucks Pickering come in handy!

Towing services will immediately dispatch with the necessary equipment once the car owner makes the distress call to the towing service provider. Depending on distance, drivers will arrive onto the scene quickly, performing a triage of the vehicle and if a dead battery is deemed the issue, the driver will begin to jumpstart the vehicle with a portable charged battery acting as the positive energy source. If you are in need of such assistance, our towing Pickering business offers a battery jumpstarting service that services many in the Pickering and the Durham area.

Flat Tire Repiar

One of the most common on-road issues is the unexpected flat tire. Road debris can range from substances, materials, and objects that are foreign to the normal roadway environment which can potentially harm your car. It is littered with sharp objects such as nails, glass, and screws which can easily puncture your tire and leave you with a flat. Aside from punctures, your tire can quickly go flat from air leakage due to a faulty tire sidewall,  damage from poorly maintained roads (potholes), and general wear and tear.

Towing services are readily available to provide road assistance to any drivers who are left isolated on road. Removal and change will be done seamlessly by professionals and if a spare tire is unavailable, the vehicle can be towed to a safe destination. If you are stuck in Pickering and/or Durham (even Toronto), our towing Pickering services offers a flat tire change service for your convenience.

Fuel Delivery

When your fuel gauge starts to near the empty indicator on your dashboard, majority of drivers will take this as a indication to travel to their nearest gas station. However, some enjoy the thrills of life and wish to see how long they can avoid refueling as the needle moves closer to the big red ‘E’. The car stalls and stops; that’s what typically happens. In these cases, you would need a fuel injection delivered if you are stranded on an empty tank with no gas station in sight.

Tow truck drivers can help with this process and are ready on standby. Fuel requirements will be captured during inbound call intake and a driver will start to make their way to your location with the necessary fuel. We offer a fuel delivery service in Pickering and the Durham region.
