Roadside Assistance Ann Arbor MI
FUEL DELIVERY IN ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN
Out of gas and going nowhere fast? Been running on empty for a while, or perhaps your gas gauge is off? Of course, when we run out of gas it always seems to happen on a cold wintry night and the last thing we want to do is trek to a nearby gas station. When you call TOW Ann Arbor, you have emergency roadside fuel delivery services right in the palm of your hand. Luckily, this means you don’t have to go on a dangerous, miserable journey just to put gas back in your car. Give us a ring, let us know the situation, and our dispatcher will send a tow truck out to you within minutes to fuel you back up.
To prevent the situation from occurring again, we recommend not pushing the envelope as far as how far you can make it when your fuel light goes on. The amount of fuel you have left in your vehicle will vary from car to car. Some auto manufacturers will say you have 10 miles, others say 50 miles- either way, it’s highly suggested to make it a regular practice to simply fill up as soon as that light goes on.
But in the event you do run out of gas, just give the number below a tap and you'll be connected to one of our staff members immediately.
Tips for staying safe while waiting for your tow truck to arrive:
If you do find yourself stranded on the side of the road, there are many precautions you can take to stay safe while you wait for your tow truck to arrive.
- Assess your surroundings. This is the first step in any emergency situation, roadside or otherwise. Where is the traffic coming from? From which side of the vehicle is it safe to exit? Are you near water, a ditch, or near a steep drop-off? The answers to these questions will help you determine what your next steps will be and how best to keep you and your passengers safe.
- Make sure that your car can be seen by turning on your hazard lights, not just if it’s dark out, but in the daytime, too. If cars can’t see you, this increases the risk that they may accidentally run into your vehicle while on the side of the road.
- If you have any emergency triangles, place these several feet behind the vehicle, but not in the road, to warn others.
- Make sure that you can be seen, as well. It’s a good idea to keep a reflective vest on hand, so that when you are outside the vehicle, you stand out.
- If there are any items in the trunk that you might need, move those to the passenger area, to reduce the number of times you need to exit the vehicle.
- As long as your vehicle itself or the vehicle location doesn’t present any danger, stay inside as much as possible, with the doors locked, until help arrives.
- If you’re stuck during a winter storm, it can be helpful to tie a reflective cloth to your antenna, to help your vehicle to stand out more.
- Do not accept offers for rides with anyone that you don’t know. Also be wary of strangers offering to help. Once you’ve called TOW Ann Arbor for a towing service, it’s not necessary to get help from passersby, as your tow truck will be on the scene shortly. While we hope that everyone has good intentions, there are unfortunately people out there who may take advantage of a stressed, stranded motorist.
- Plan ahead! Keep your vehicle stocked with a vehicle emergency kit containing a blanket, flashlight with batteries, extra water, triangle reflectors, reflective vest, motor oil, jumper cables, car jack, spare tire, basic tool kit, first aid kit, tire pressure gauge, ice scraper, snacks such as energy bars, and tire sealant. There are a number of roadside emergency kits that you can purchase that come fully stocked, or you can build your own. Either way, having these basic supplies on hand will ensure that you are ready to tackle most of the common emergency situations.
- Never leave children or pets unattended in your vehicle.
