A dead car battery can be an incredibly frustrating situation, but there are a few things you should know about dead batteries before getting too panicked. By understanding what dead batteries actually mean, how they happen and how to prevent it from happening in the future, anyone will be able to stay calm when faced with dead battery troubles.

If you're still unsure about what dead batteries really mean, consider this: dead batteries don't create electricity; it simply means that your car's electrical system is not receiving any power from the battery.

General safety tips when getting a jump start

If you're ever stuck with a dead battery, don't worry - help is available. Silver Spring Tow Truck can come to your rescue and give your car the jump start it needs to get running again. But how do you ensure your safety when the tow truck driver arrives? Here are a few tips:

  • Make sure the tow truck driver is legitimate. There are many scams in which fake tow truck drivers try to take advantage of people who are stranded. If you're not sure whether or not the driver is legitimate, ask for identification before allowing them to touch your car. All of our drivers carry proper identification.


  • Keep a safe distance from the tow truck. Tow trucks can be dangerous if you're not on guard, especially while your vehicle is being connected. Stay at least 10 feet away from the vehicle at all times to avoid being injured.


  • Keep your doors locked and windows rolled up during the entire process. If you have small children in the car with you, make sure they are safely secured before giving any stranger access to your car. Our drivers are all background checked and properly screened before we allow them to drive for us.


  • Be aware of how close you are to traffic when getting your dead battery jump started by a tow truck on the side of the road. If possible, move your cars away from traffic first. This will help ensure that no accidents occur while replacing or fixing your dead battery.
