When your car breaks down,,,,,,,,, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters, Superman, or you turn on your Batman flashlight so he can come save you or maybe your friendly neighborhood Spiderman. You would call your insurance customer service or roadside assistance club who connects you to these unsung heroes. Now you must be thinking why call them heroes?

Well, our unsung road heroes have different types of villains to fight everyday. It doesn’t matter if the villain of the day is a damaged or flat tyre, fuel issue, lockout situation or battery failure or key problems, they have to fight them and win at any cost.

So who are these unsung road heroes? These are normal people like you and me, with family and friends so called recovery drivers or tow truck driver.

We at TowMyDrive talked to these unsung road heroes and asked them how it feels like to be unsung road heroes. 

A tow truck driver. Doesn’t sound thrilling, now does it?

Towing is an extremely difficult and often thankless job. People love us and hate us sometimes but we go above and beyond the call of duty to assist those in trouble. We work long hours with action that never stops, with no benefits, no vacation, and no bonus just to make sure that drivers who need assistance are not kept waiting. As soon as there is a call coming in, its like we can actually travel with the speed of light, as we get there within 30 minutes. We try to get you into your car once again, securely seated in the driver’s seat, once again in control of your car.

The best part of being a tow truck driver is that everyday is different. You never know who you’ll meet or where you’ll end up at the end of the day. Sometime we even have play as a psychologist like when we arrive at the scene, drivers are feeling down and out because of their car broken down. We try to make them laugh and hopefully help them get through what seems to be a bad day. 

TowMyDrive is a free app that allows UAE drivers to directly request roadside assistance via GPS-enabled technology.

TowMyDrive provides roadside assistance faster than traditional methods due to the app’s proximity-based dispatch, which matches the closest roadside assistance unit with the driver. On average, stranded motorists who use the app are serviced within 15 minutes by the TowMyDrive support network. No Membership Fees. Affordable Flat Rates. Fast ETA’s. Support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

TowMyDrive’s growing vehicle service network has more than 2,000 service partners across Dubai, which gives you faster service. In most cases, TowMyDrive users get help in half the time it would take other services to deliver assistance.

We at TowMyDrive treat our unsung road heroes as our TMD Heroes and get them noticed that they are doing an awesome job, so next time when you see anyone of them or when you call your insurance company for help make sure to thank your tow truck driver for all the hard work he puts in.
