Motor vehicles have been breaking down ever since they were invented and if a repair was not possible, then a recovery or tow was usually required. In early days, this was often achieved by pushing or pulling it home. Many of the first vehicle repair shops had been bicycle repairers or blacksmiths, and they quickly adapted to recovering their customers’ disabled vehicles. In addition, the motorists were often capable of carrying out minor repairs themselves, but as vehicles become more complicated, this becomes harder. Nowadays, vehicles are towed to a garage of choice for specialized diagnosis and repair.
