“If you have a membership with a roadside assistance provider, like Urgently or AAA, you can contact them for towing service.
If you do not have an auto club or roadside service membership, try contacting local repair shops that also provide towing. If you contract them for the repairs, they may agree to tow the car for free.
Many people also have towing coverage or roadside assistance through their companies and may not realize it. Check with your:
  • car insurance
  • automotive warranty
  • credit card company”
