If you have ever been caught out with a broken down car on a busy road or a deserted road late at night, then you know just how scary and potentially dangerous it can be.

Not only do you need to get your car out of the way of other vehicles, but you also need to think about doing the things that are going to keep you nice and safe while you wait for the emergency professionals to arrive! 

Here at TG Towing, we strive to get to our clients in as quick a time as physically possible, and we also want you to feel secure and in control in the time that we are travelling to you.

To help you achieve that, here are some of the best safety tips when you are waiting in Maitland for towing.


  • If you can, try to get your car parked in a safe area. This obviously means away from the busy roads because if your lights are not working, any moving vehicles coming towards you will simply not know that you are there.

  • If you are stranded on or alongside a busy highway, then the best thing that you can do is stay inside your vehicle. You don’t want to be stood outside with fast vehicles rushing past you. The interior of your car will provide some protection until we can get there.

  • Under no circumstances should you be accepting rides from strangers who offer help. We know it sounds cynical and untrusting, but we’re sure you would agree that it is better to be safe than sorry. Remember that ‘bad guys’ don’t have a stereotypical look.

  • When the towing company gets to you, always make sure to ask them for the relevant identification to ensure that they are who they say they are. Towing professionals will have no problems with responding to a request like this because they understand how vulnerable breaking down in an unfamiliar place can make you feel.

So, if you should ever find yourself in need of Maitland towing, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

We hope that you have found out tips helpful, and if you have any more questions or queries involving our towing services there will always be a member of the team on hand to assist you.
