When you run into trouble on the road and have to call a tow truck, remember to secure your vehicle and belongings. Start by disengaging the emergency brake. This helps you avoid damage to your car. Next, close all the windows. With the windows closed, dirt and debris cannot get in the car during transport or at the shop.
Unless you accompany your vehicle to the garage, you need to provide your key so that the mechanic and tow truck driver can access the car.
Remove any valuables and all personal items you will need while your car undergoes repairs.
