It’s normal to feel shocked and stressed after discovering that your car is not where you last parked it. In the state of California, a tow truck company must follow specific procedures when removing a vehicle from its parking spot and relocating it to a tow yard. Here are some tips to follow when you realize your car has been towed.
Stay Calm, Call the Right People
First, collect your thoughts and try to calm down. Then, call 411 and ask to speak with the local police station. The police will tell you if your car was towed. If it has been towed, look for a nearby sign that indicates who to call. If you do not see a sign, your car may have been illegally towed. In this case, you’ll need to find a list of local towing companies in the yellow pages or on Google, then call each of them until you find out who has your car.
Call a Friend
Next, you’ll need to find a ride to the towing company that has your vehicle. If you don’t feel comfortable calling a friend, family member, or loved one, you’ll have to call a taxi—and that won’t be cheap.
Stop By a Bank or ATM
Many towing companies do not accept checks or credit cards, so you’ll need to have cash on hand. Take out several hundred dollars if you can, because you may not know how expensive it will be to reclaim your car until you get there.

If you do not plan on driving a car for more than a month, you should consider putting it in storage. Before you store your car, watch this video for AAA’s tips on getting it ready for safe storage.
First, thoroughly clean the vehicle’s interior and exterior, and make sure everything is dry. Store the car indoors if possible, or use a car cover if you’re storing it outdoors. Change the oil, brake fluid, and antifreeze before you store the car to prevent corrosion and engine damage.

The winter season is almost here, and cooler temperatures will put extra strain on your car’s major systems. Before the cold winter weather sets in, it is important to make sure that your car is prepared for winter driving. By scheduling key maintenance procedures, you will ensure that your car provides you with great performance, even when the temperatures drop. Here are some steps you can take to get your car ready for winter driving.
Check Your Tires
Your tires will provide you with safety and traction when you are driving on wet or slippery roads. Before the start of winter, it is important to check the condition of your tires. Make sure that your tires are properly inflated, and that your tire treads have not worn down too far. If your tire treads are significantly worn, you may want to purchase a new set.
Change Your Oil
Regular oil changes are important around the year, but this service is especially crucial during the winter. Some motorists prefer to switch their car over to winter weight oil during the winter. This special oil blend will make sure that your engine is properly cooled and lubricated on cold days.
Inspect Your Heating System
Before you head out on the road this winter, it is important to make sure that your heating system is in proper working order. Your mechanic can inspect your heating system to ensure that it is functioning properly. By maintaining your heating system, you will ensure that you have a heated car when the temperatures drop.

When you are driving on snowy or icy roads, it is important to maintain safe control over your vehicle. To stay safe on a slippery road, it is important to slow down. When you need to brake, make sure to tap your brake pedal. Braking too sharply or suddenly can cause a skid. If your car does begin to skid, it is important to remain calm. You will be able to regain control of your vehicle by turning your steering wheel in the direction that your wheels are travelling. This action will help you straighten out your car and remain safely on the road.
If you are in need of towing or roadside assistance, be sure to contact All Ways Towing and Transport.

As the temperatures cool down for the coming winter season, you may be more likely to drive during a rainstorm. Driving in the rain offers a special set of challenges and safety considerations. By driving cautiously and maintaining your vehicle, you will keep yourself and other motorists safe on the road. Here are some essential safety tips for driving your car in the rain.
Your first action when driving in the rain should be to slow down. By reducing your speed, you will help to maintain control over your vehicle. As you slow your car, tap your brakes lightly and gently. By braking gently and reducing your speed smoothly, you will avoid hydroplaning or skidding out on a rainy road.
Increase Your Following Distance
When you are driving in a rainstorm, it is important to increase your following distance from the car in front of you. As a general rule, it is best to keep at least five seconds of distance between your vehicle and the car ahead. By providing enough distance, you will ensure that you have plenty of time to break or avoid a collision.
Maintain Your Vehicle
Regular vehicle maintenance will help you stay safe when driving in rainy and wet conditions. To keep your vehicle in great driving shape, be sure to check your tire inflation and tread wear on a regular basis. In addition, make sure that your windshield wipers and headlights are in proper working order. By keeping your vehicle in great shape, you will be prepared for even the rainiest driving weather.
