It’s easy to search for any number that you need these days. There’s no need to look up a phone number in the phonebook because you can always use a search engine to find what you need. However, you don’t always have the time or a strong enough signal to find what you’re looking for, especially when you’re out and about. If you’re a driver, it’s important to have some useful phone numbers on hand just in case. If you get into an accident, your car breaks down or you just need to take it for repairs, it’s handy to have some numbers of people and services you can rely on.
When your car doesn’t start, you’ve had to pull over because of a weird noise, or you’ve accidentally locked your keys in your car, you need to be able to get help quickly. Having phone numbers for breakdown services available in your phone means you can contact someone quickly. Look for a reliable towing service that you can call when you need them and keep the number of a breakdown services provider on hand. You don’t want to be stuck on the side of the road or unable to drive your car away from home because you can’t start it.
Your Insurance Provider
Getting in touch with your insurance provider can be necessary in a range of situations. Whether you just want to ask a question or you want to make a claim, you don’t want to waste time looking for the right phone number. Your insurance provider can have different phone numbers for different purposes, so it’s a good idea to know which number is for what purpose. It can even be helpful to be able to call your insurance provider straight away after an accident. Some insurance companies can help you with breakdown services and towing or can give you information on what to do next.
An Auto Shop/Garage
If your car needs repairs or just a tune-up or service, having a reliable mechanic in your contacts makes it a lot easier. The first time you need to find somewhere to use in a new area can take a while because you want to find somewhere that works for you. But once you find a place that you’re satisfied with, be sure to save their name and number. You can still check now and then to compare different places, just in case you can find a better deal or better service.
An emergency contact is always important to have on your phone. Of course, whoever you would call in an emergency is probably already on your phone, whether it’s your partner, parents, or best friend. But it can also be helpful to make sure they are easy to find, especially because emergency service workers might want to contact someone on your behalf. List them in your contact as ICE (in case of emergency) or make sure they’re at the top of your contacts list.
All drivers should have these important numbers on hand if they want to have access to essential services and people when driving.
