It is not very unusual for anyone to have a break down with their car at least once. Now, if the break down happens in a familiar place or a well populated one, it is easy to inquire about a service centre or a mechanic who can come to our rescue. But many of these unfortunate incidents happen in the most possible remote locations without a soul nearby to help. It is in these situations that the app listed below come to our aid. Today, most of the car manufacturers offer roadside assistance through their own service network and in partnership with other service providers. You can use these apps if you are unable to contact your car manufacturer’s services.
