When you find yourself stranded with your vehicle stuck off the road, there is only one company you need to call: Checkered Flag Towing & Recovery, LLC will be there as soon as possible to either get you back on the road, or to load it for towing.
When you have gone off the road and the damage to your vehicle is not severe, it can be tempting to call a friend with a truck or rely on a Good Samaritan to get pulled back on the road. However, there are a number of reasons why this is not a good idea. A professional tow truck driver has the knowledge and equipment necessary to safely move your vehicle without causing further damage. It is all too easy for an amateur to make a mistake and further damage your vehicle, simply from lack of experience. Even if a professional does cause damage to your vehicle in the process of getting it back on the road, towing companies have insurance policies that will cover damage to your vehicle. A friend’s vehicle insurance will absolutely not cover damage to your car in this circumstance.
Furthermore, there is real potential for injury when an amateur is attempting to tow a vehicle back onto the road. A tow truck will have emergency lights, a winch, and other equipment that allows the operator to move your vehicle as safely as possible. Secondary accidents are all too common when amateurs attempt to tow vehicles back onto a road. When you take into account the fact that vehicle insurance often covers emergency roadside service so you will pay nothing out of pocket, it just makes sense to wait for a professional.
