Accidents, the bane of our lives. They happen when we least expect them, that’s why we call them accidents. Sudden, unforeseen events. Sometimes they are inconsequential events that amount to nothing, but sometimes they are life threatening or fatal. Vehicle accidents can be lethal. Fortunately, not all vehicle accidents are that bad. They may not be fatal, but if they incapacitate your car, they are bad enough. Having to call in towing in Darwin to take your vehicle away proves that.
The suddenness and result of a car accident usually shakes everyone involved up. Anyone not injured will probably stand around in a daze, not knowing what to do with themselves. We at Banjo’s Anytime Towing Service see that frequently when we arrive at the scene of an accident to tow away damaged vehicles. For that reason, we would like to tell you what to do while you wait for towing services after an accident.
Start calling the appropriate services
Make sure that you have reported the incident to the police. If your car isn’t capable of motoring along under its own power, then the accident wasn’t just a simple fender bender. Of course, if anybody has been injured, you phone for an ambulance even before you report it to the police. If you don’t already have a reliable service for your towing, get on your phone and search for one.
Phone your family
Next, you should phone your family, to set their minds at rest. Accidents cause delays in your routines and schedules. If you don’t turn up at home at your usual or stated time, your family will begin to worry. Put their minds at rest by telling them that you are alright but will be home later than expected. You can tell them that you are waiting for towing and approximately when to expect you home.
Inform your insurance company
Of course, you should inform your insurance company. Not only to make sure that you are up to date, but also that you are covered for the type of accident you have just had. It’s a good idea to make sure that you also covered for towing too. Taking pictures of the damage to your car and any others involved will help with your insurance claim.
Cancel your appointments if necessary
If you have appointments that day, call and cancel them. This is a courtesy measure and the people will understand.
