In many places, winter includes snow and ice. Snow and ice mean that your car can get stuck. In many cases, you can get your car out on your own or with the help of a neighbor or two. However, there are times when you get yourself stuck so well that you need to have help. That's when you can call in a tow truck to help you get unstuck. There are several reasons why you want to use a tow truck to help you out. 

Lower Risk of Damage

One reason is that there is going to be a lower risk of damage to your car and injury to you. Part of that is because if you keep trying to get unstuck on your own, you may end up damaging your axles or drivetrain because you are putting a lot of power into things without actually moving, and you might be doing this over and over. Also, if one tire manages to get traction, but the rest of the tires don't, it can cause your car to jump forward, which could cause an injury to anyone who might be pushing your car out. 

More Power

A tow truck is specifically designed to move its own weight as well as the weight of another vehicle. It also has motors to run the cable that lifts and pulls vehicles. So, the tow truck is going to have more power to get your car unstuck than you are going to be able to come up with. Even if you have a neighbor who has a massive pickup truck with a winch, you aren't going to really be able to come up with the same power as a tow truck. On top of more power, the tow truck is going to have the right kind of equipment to grab your car and haul it around. 


Another reason to have a tow truck come to pull your car out of the snow is that the driver is going to have some training in how to hook up a car properly and in how to pull it safely from the snow or ice. That training is important to have. 

If you are stuck in the snow this winter, you need to figure out a way to get unstuck. One way that you can do that is to call a tow truck. They can come out to your location and get you unstuck and ready to go.
