What to do if your vehicle breaks down?

The first few minutes after a breakdown

Your first steps after a breakdown depend on where and when it happens. A quiet residential street is one thing — a busy highway during rush hour is quite another. But either way, your safety and the safety of your passengers always come first. These 8 steps can help.

  1. Turn on your hazard lights
    This warns other drivers that something's wrong. Keep your hazards on until the car's safely out of danger.
  2. Pull over (if the car's still moving) 
    In an ideal situation, you'll want to aim for the right shoulder of the road. If you find yourself on a road that doesn't have a safe place to pull into, put on your turn signal and try to get into the right-hand lane as quickly as possible. Pulling into the left-hand shoulder is a last resort. If you're driving on residential streets, try to pull into a free parking spot or parking lot if one's nearby.
  3. Turn your wheel away from the road and put the emergency brake on
    This prevents your car from rolling if you're stuck on any kind of hill.
  4. Triple-check before getting out of the car
    Make absolutely sure the coast is clear before attempting to get out of your car, especially on a busy highway. Trust your gut here — if you feel you'd be safer in the car, go with your instincts and stay inside with your seat belt on. If you made it to the right-hand side of the road, get out through the passenger-side door. And if your engine's smoking or you see flames, get out and run to safety.
  5. Call for help
    In an emergency call 911. Otherwise, call give us a call at713-545-6826 were are standing by to help get you back on the road.  
  6. Set up your flares or triangles if you have them
    You want to put both flares behind your car (one near your vehicle, usually about 10 feet behind it, and the other one further away. 
  7.  Open your hood
    A opened hood is the universal sign of a breakdown. Once you're safely out of the car, open your hood and give us a call at713-545-6826 
  8. Wait for help
    Don't try to fix your car by yourself. Give us a call and we will send a professional mobile mechanic to get you and your family back on the road.
