I encountered an incident where I came across this driver in distress at petrol station. His rear tyre punctured, he tried to change tyre himself but he's unable to take out the tyre for some unknown reasons. I tried to help him by trying to call for tow truck to tow car to a tyre workshop

 

This incident happened in pasir panjang road. I also dun know the nearest tyre shop the, except alexandra village. But this incident is at 6.30pm.

 

But I realised I got no tow truck contact!

 

Anyone know any tow truck contact? I realized if i'm the one desperate for help, I will be stuck like that driver.

After I left the incident, I actually realized I should have ask the driver to check his insurance policy. Usually the insurance company has a help hot line number to call.......

Usually you can call the tow truck which is assigned to your insurance company's authorised workshop. Or just call your insurance hotline (hopefully they are not closed) and get them to send you a tow truck.

 

All motorist should have a tow truck number handy, one for SG and one for MY (if often go MY). Best is your insurance company's authorised workshop tow truck number....

Honestly, I would like to help any Mcfer whom caught in car breakdown during their West Malaysia driving trip, but....but....but....many bad business ethic mechanic / tow truck drivers cum boss will opens his "Lion Mouth" once they see Sg.Reg.Car [sly]

Not just for Towing.

 

If you need to change tyres, batt flat.. can call them.

 

And actually say if you are with a friend, and his car broke down, you can ask for AA's service as long as you are present as well.

But if the breakdown happen to be along somewhere NSHW, how long (estimates) do AA needs to take sending their recovery vehicle [:(]
