If you've ever had your car let you down, you'll know how stressful it can be. Not only do you have to deal with the inconvenience of not being able to use your vehicle, but also with finding someone who can jump start or tow your vehicle to a garage. Fortunately,
Land O' Lakes Towing offers both types of service as standard and will come out at any time to help you get back on the road again.
Car battery failure is one of the most common reasons for people needing roadside assistance. It's also one of the most frustrating problems that motorists face because there isn't always an obvious way of knowing when it might happen - particularly if your car isn't very old.
It's not always obvious why car batteries fail either. There are many reasons that can cause a car battery to drain which, if left unattended, could result in the need for your vehicle to be towed to a garage.
If you have recently driven through an area with heavy rain and parked up for a period of time, it's likely that the battery got wet inside - this is one of the most common causes of failure.
If you've started your engine and notice that it takes longer than usual to turn over, your battery might have gone flat due to being drained by additional electrical loads on the system which then need more power from the battery than normal.
Also check out online guides with jump-starting instructions. They can show you exactly what you'll need to do if your battery does go flat and you need a jump start from another vehicle. If this method fails, then it may be time to call out a 24 hour roadside assistance service for help, such as Land O' Lakes Towing.
Land O' Lakes Towing can also come out to your location and provide you with the necessary equipment which will allow you to start your engine again. This will require that one of our technicians places jump leads onto both vehicles - please don't attempt to do this yourself as there is very real potential for you to cause an accident.
In many cases, where a car battery has drained and then been jump started, this is all that is required to get you going again. However, if your battery is too badly damaged or if there are additional electrical issues with your vehicle which also need resolving, we will let you know once we've had a look at your car.
If the issue can't be resolved in one visit and/or requires additional parts such as a new starter motor for example, we'll tow your vehicle to one of our garages so that it can receive the necessary attention from our fully trained technicians.
