Breaking down in your vehicle is never a pleasant experience, however knowing how to be prepared for such an occasion can make the difference between stress free recovery and having a mental breakdown on the side of the road. Joking aside, although you may not have a mental breakdown yourself, going through any such ordeal can put a lot of emotional stress, which you can avoid by having a breakdown recovery number to hand when taking trips to and from Melbourne.

You may get into an accident or your vehicle may breakdown for a variety of reasons and having some pre-existing knowledge of such possibilities can help you make a better decision on what to do during this stressful time.

Accident Recovery
Getting into an accident is one of the most emotional shocking experience one can have and having to deal with the aftermath can be even more stressful and confusing. Usually in a situation like this, it will depend on the severity of the accident. If your vehicle is unsafe to drive or not drive-able due to some other reason, getting hold of a breakdown recovery company in Melbourne can help you get your vehicle towed to the nearest garage or specific garage your insurance company has appointed to you.

Locked Doors
It happens at the worst time, you pop out the vehicle to quickly grab a snack and find you have locked yourself out of your car. This situation can be very frustrating and very dangerous especially if you have a child or a pet inside the car at the time. You can maybe try to break the window, but this can be dangerous to the occupants of the vehicle and add another repair cost. This is a good situation where a breakdown recovery service can help you quickly recover your keys safely. Sometimes the battery in your key may cease to work or worse your key breaks. A recovery service can help rectify this and get you back on the road.

Dead Battery
You’ve been driving on a long journey and stop to rest and find the vehicle doesn’t no longer starts up. It can happen for many reasons including poor alternator, corroded battery due to water damage, or the life of the battery has run out. Sometimes in this situation you need a jump start service. A car recovery company help jump start your vehicle and get you back on the road. If your battery cannot be jump started, your battery can be replaced or you can be towed to a garage can that diagnose the issue further.

Wrong Fuel
There is no shame in making a mistake like this, it happens to the best of us. You’ve rented a vehicle for a long journey which hasn’t clearly marked the vehicles fuel type and you have put the wrong fuel in. You may have borrowed a vehicle for a specific journey and you mistakenly picked the wrong fuel. In this situation it is best not to make the problem worse by fueling with the correct fuel. You will need the existing fuel drained before it be re-fueled to prevent damage to the engine. A breakdown recovery company in Melbourne can help in this situation. They can tow your vehicle to a nearby garage that drain the vehicle and get you back on the road safely as soon as possible.

Fuel Delivery
You’ve topped up your vehicle with fuel and set off, but you misjudge the distance to a service station and you find yourself out of fuel on the motorway. Not to fret this can happen to the best of us. Rest assured a roadside assistance company can get to you quickly, fuel you up and help get you to the next service station in a timely fashion.

Flat Tyre
This one is a common issue due to many unforeseen conditions, including poor road conditions, cold weather changes, poor tyre condition, un-even tyre pressures, pre-existing nail/object in the tyre that you were unaware of before leaving for your journey that causes a puncture. Depending on where you breakdown, changing a tyre may or may not be safe or even feasible.

If you’re on the motorway, it is important to take safety precautions when attempting to change a tyre. You may not have the right equipment or maybe your child is driving somewhere for the first time, it is safer and wiser to get hold of a breakdown recovery company who can be at your child’s location in no time to help replace the tyre for them, keeping your child safe in their vehicle and not be in harms way. A small cost to you will keep your kids safe also give you peace of mind.
