Ideally, you should always have a plan for dealing with a situation like this and you should always have all emergency numbers on hand because you may not have cellphone or internet signals in the area you experience the car breakdown which means you could be stuck there for hours until help does arrive. If your car has broken down and you can’t seem to get it started, the beast course of action is to switch on your emergency hazard lights to warn people coming from a distance and then, attempt to move your vehicle to the side of the road out of harm’s way. It is vital that you always have a reactionary plan in the case of a breakdown.
Many people who drive vehicles do not plan for this to happen because they assume it will never be them which can be a very big mistake. It is also important that you have an crisis roadside kit with you in your car in case you are unable to get help but this said, it is important that you try to get professional help because you, as a person that is not qualified could end up making the situation a lot worse and you could even be putting your life in danger.
Do not leave your car
One of the most important things for you to keep in mind is that you should never leave your car along unattended because there will be people passing by who could steal parts of your car or slash your wheels just for the sake of it and then, you could end up with a lot more damage than your original breakdown. You should usually be able to contact an expert provider in the area if you have emergency roadside assistance numbers on hand but if you do not have the numbers, you might have to depend on a passerby to help you out by taking the message to a garage in the area on your behalf.
In most cases, it should not be too difficult for you to contact a mechanic to provide a great quality of service. Dandenong has quite a few garages that work twenty four hours of the day and that would mean they can come out to you no matter what time you have experienced the breakdown. Of course, if you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to find a garage close to you, you may need to have someone that you know, a friend or a relative come out to you with a professional. This would cost quite a bit of extra money but it may be your only choice.
