    Answering Some Common Questions About Towing

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Having your vehicle towed is a frustrating situation. Similarly, having a vehicle illegally parked on your property can be just as upsetting. Read on to learn more about how to find out if your car was towed, how to recover your vehicle, or who to call for a prompt towing service in the Fremont, CA area.

    How Can I Find Out if My Vehicle Was Towed or Stolen?

    If you believe your car was stolen, call the police right away and ask them whether your vehicle was recently towed. They will be able to tell you whether it has been towed, where the car has been towed, and how you can recover your towed car.

    How Do I Retrieve My Towed Vehicle?

    You can find out which company towed your car by either asking the police or checking to see if a towing company posted a sign with contact information nearby. When you make contact with the towing company, ask them how much it will cost to get your vehicle back. Go to the tow lot with enough money to pay for the fee, and be sure to bring proof of identity and vehicle registration, if it isn’t already inside the vehicle.

    What Can I Do About an Illegally Parked Vehicle on My Property?

    If there is a car parked illegally on your residential or commercial property, you can call the Parking Violations Bureau, Department of Transportation, at (213) 485-4184 or (818) 756-9418. An officer will be dispatched to the location of the illegally parked vehicle. If the illegally parked vehicle is blocking you from exiting the property, explain this to the officer, and he or she will be able to impound the vehicle.

    Car Maintenance Tips for the Summer Months

    Last updated 6 months ago

    From checking the brakes to inspecting the tires, summer car maintenance is important for both the safety and reliability of your vehicle. After all, heat can increase the likelihood of car trouble if your vehicle is poorly maintained. Read this article for car maintenance tips from All Ways Towing and Transport of Fremont, CA—the East Bay’s preferred towing company and roadside assistance provider. 

    Have the Battery Inspected

    Replace your battery if it will be out of warranty soon, as the heat can cause your battery to die and your car to break down. If you don’t know how old your battery is, have it tested and cleaned at a car service shop this summer.

    Check the Tire Inflation

    Use a digital tire gauge to check the air pressure of your tires every month. Compare the readings with the manufacturer’s air pressure recommendations, which are found in the driver’s side doorsill. If you need to add air to the vehicle’s tires, visit a car service shop.

    Inspect the Fluids

    Your vehicle’s transmission fluid, brake fluid, and engine coolant should be inspected to ensure they are not dirty or in low supply. If you haven’t received an oil change in the last 3,000 to 5,000 miles, change it so that your engine doesn’t overheat this summer.

    Get the Brakes Checked

    Heat can be very difficult for a vehicle’s brakes. To stay safe this summer while protecting your car, have the brakes checked by a mechanic, especially if you are noticing unusual noises or vibrations, or pulling to one side during braking.

    Replace the Windshield Wipers

    The sun can wear windshield wiper blades so much that the blades become cracked and torn, unable to safely clear away rainwater. Replace the windshield wiper blades at the end of summer so you are prepared for rainy season in Fremont.

    For quality car service, come to All Ways Transport and Towing. If your vehicle has broken down, we offer roadside service, and can even tow your car to our shop and service it at our AAA-certified shop. For more information, call us at (877) 898-6993 or visit our website.

    Keeping Your Car Protected From Overheating During the Summer

    Last updated 6 months ago

    There are a number of things you should do to keep your car from overheating and breaking down this summer. First, visit a car service shop to have the motor oil, engine coolant, and transmission fluid checked and either filled or replaced if necessary. The primary function of these fluids is to keep your powertrain cooled and lubricated. Have the battery, belts, hoses, and filters inspected for signs of wear, as these parts are more susceptible to failing in the summer months. Watch the video clip to learn more about the most important summer maintenance services.

    Steps to Take If Your Vehicle Breaks Down

    Last updated 7 months ago

    A broken down vehicle can be a highly stressful situation, even for the most experienced driver. If your vehicle breaks down when you are driving on the road, it is important to keep calm and remain safe as you deal with the issue. With a few simple actions, you can safely and effectively deal with a vehicle breakdown. Here are some important steps to take if your vehicle breaks down.

    Navigate to the Side of the Road

    The first step to take if your vehicle breaks down is to pull off to the side of the road. Ideally, your vehicle should be as far away from the lane of traffic as possible. If you are driving on the interstate, it is a good idea to pull off at the nearest exit. When exiting is not possible, be sure to navigate your car out of the line of moving cars.

    Alert Other Drivers

    Your next step should be to alert other drivers that your vehicle has experienced a breakdown. Turn on your emergency flashers, which will indicate that you are having a mechanical problem. In addition, raise your hood. It is also a great idea to carry warning triangles or flares, which can be used to divert traffic away from your car.

    Contact a Towing Company

    Once you and your car are safe, you are ready to contact a towing company. Take note of your location, as this will help the tow truck driver reach you as swiftly as possible. You can ask to be towed to your regular mechanic, or you can head to a mechanic that is in the nearby area.

    In the event of a vehicle break down, be sure to have the contact information for All Ways Towing and Transport on hand. You can contact us for emergency roadside assistance by calling (877) 898-6993. We are proud to provide the Fremont area with all types of towing, transportation, and auto repair services.
