Have you ever realized that you were locked out in San Fransisco? You know that sinking feeling you get when you discover that your car keys are nowhere to be found? It is not a happy feeling, and it happens to the best and the worst of people. After you throw a little fit there are some important things that you need to take care of. Of course, calling a towing company is the best option for you, but there are a few things that you need to do before you make any big decisions.
The first thing that you want to do is gather all of the important information that you are going to need. You need your license plate number and the physical address of your location. If you don’t know the exact address you will at least need the intersection or a well-known landmark nearby to help the driver know your location. You will also need the detailed information about your car – the year, make, model and whether it is a 4 wheel drive, 2 wheel drive, front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Also, they will need to know where you want your car to be towed. Make sure that you have your method of payment ready too.
If you already have a towing company or membership with an auto club, you should give them a call and let them know what the situation is. Provide them with all of the information that you have gathered and anything else that they need. If you are not part of an auto club you will need to call someone that has access to a phone book or you can use your phone to search for one. If you have the patience and the time you should call a couple of companies to make sure you are getting the best pricing. Then you just sit and wait. You’ll most likely never get locked out in San Fransisco again.
