User Guide To Roadside Vehicle Assistance

There are times when on long trips vehicles break down due to minor problems that have been previously overlooked. Regardless of the reasons why the car broke down, getting help in the middle of the road can be very difficult. Not everyone would stop their cars and help. Fortunately, Australia has numerous roadside assistance services to help those stranded in the middle of the road.

Roadside assistance is basically a service that provides assistance to motorists who have suffered mechanical failures in the middle of the road. Roadside assistance may provide services such as jump starting a vehicle, towing, helping to change a flat tire, providing a small amount of fuel, and many more.

Roadside assistance services originated from countries with early national motoring associations such as the American Automobile Association, Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club, and the Canadian Automobile Association. Many of these clubs provided assistance to members who are stranded on the road with a fleet of vehicles ready to help. In the United Kingdom, the first roadside assistance was mounted on motorbikes before the introduction of the van.

A network of emergency phone boxes was placed at intervals by the roadside of some countries. Eventually, with the widespread ownership of mobile phones, these emergency phone boxes were lessened. Motorists can now easily contact the nearest roadside assistance company or their preferred choice depending on the range of the company's service.

Roadside assistance used to be provided by car clubs. But now, roadside assistance can also be provided by many organisations. Vehicle manufacturers have also begun to provide this service as an integral part of their service loyalty programs. There are a number of roadside assistance companies and organisations available in Australia. Most of them can also be found on the internet with their contact details posted online. Many of these companies are also car repair shops and car insurance businesses.

Roadside assistance tips

  • Before you call for roadside assistance, it is important to know the exact problem of the vehicle. The information will be relayed to the person or team that will come to your location. It will also make their jobs easier since they will be bringing the necessary tools to fix your car's problem.
  • Tell the company the exactly where you were driving and where you think you may be on the road. This will help the company call the closest tow truck company or emergency medical services so that they can get to you as quickly as possible.
  • Always keep copies of all the information that you will need to present for your roadside assistance. Keep one in your wallet, and another in your glove compartment.
  • Since not all people who provide assistance are honest and will not touch your stuff, it is best to always keep a watchful eye for your belongings. It is best to be vigilant these days.
  • When waiting for roadside assistance, always keep the doors of your vehicle closed and stay away from passing vehicles.
