Land O' Lakes Towing is renowned for being the most responsive tow truck company in the north Tampa area, with over a decade of experience and all the tools, equipment and expertise to have you and your vehicle safely picked up and transported for repair and to wherever you need to go! There are a number of reasons why a vehicle may malfunction while in operation and need to be towed. Some of the most common causes of vehicle breakdown include:
Tires are the soles of your vehicle's shoes, and are subject to multiple forms of wear, heat, abrasion, pressure and impact. Combine these with having to withstand the weight of the vehicle and it's easy to see how much stress your tires are subject to, such that any sharp object in the road - from stones or glass to thick branches or metal objects - can easily cause a puncture, rendering your vehicle unusable. What's more, a rapidly deflating tire when you're driving at speed can be extremely dangerous and can cause you to lose control of the vehicle.
The wheels and rims carry the tire. A bent rim can lead to a gradual reduction in tire pressure and eventual tire failure. As such, it is important to keep an eye not only on the tire, but the rim. Any sign of bending or damage can quickly lead to more extensive damage to the tire and poses a greater risk to the vehicle.
Your car battery powers your vehicle's entire electrical system, and without it the engine simply won't start. There are multiple reasons why a battery may run low or die, including accidentally leaving lights on, loose or corroded connections, extremely high or low temperatures, damaged alternator, battery age, etc.
The alternator recharges your battery as you drive. If your alternator is old or faulty, it will not charge the battery and so your battery will only have as much power as it contains until it runs dry.
Manual-transmission vehicles are susceptible to more wear and tear as the clutch can become stretched or even fail completely while in operation. This can result in even greater damage to your transmission system or gearbox, which can be extremely expensive to repair later.
This is a less frequent problem, but people putting the wrong gasoline into a vehicle (e.g. diesel in a gasoline engine) is more common than you might think, and can be disastrous for an engine long-term. In the short term, you won't get very far at all with the wrong gas in your car.
Thankfully this issue is going to do the least damage (zero) to your vehicle, but it is nonetheless a massive inconvenience and can be dangerous if you are stranded by the side of the road or highway.
Perhaps one of the most terrifying causes of vehicle damage in terms of the possibility of an accident, brakes that are not regularly checked and maintained will wear out, making stopping procedures feel 'longer' and extending the stopping distance. If you feel like your brakes are not working effectively, pull over immediately and contact us for roadside assistance. We'll have your vehicle towed to a repair shop to get the brakes addressed and can help get you where you need to go. Our towing service can spare you that risk.

At a time when more and more people are facing economic hardship, buying a new car can often be out of reach. Throw a pandemic into the equation, which put even more out of work and has taught us all to become increasingly diligent and sparing with our finances. The thought of a new vehicle becomes ever more distant.
As a result, the vast majority of us are having to maintain our existing vehicles more than ever before. However, with that comes a certain level of uncertainty due to the increased wear and tear placed on our cars, resulting in maintenance issues with components such as batteries, alternators, tires, brakes, filters the list goes on.
