We will make sure the vehicle is running smoothly and consistently before we confidently send you back onto the road to continue your journey

Portable Battery Charger

For the modern day motorists, portable battery chargers have become extremely popular. Both with our commercial and private clients. This independently powered unit is extremely versatile and practical. These units are usually compact and are built just big enough to fit over both poles of most regulator approved batteries. The above has ensured that this method of jump starting is quickly catching up to the old fashioned jumper cable. Eliminating the need for an external power source to provide the energy needed to restart the vehicle. At Glen Burnie Towing Services we employ only the highest quality portable battery chargers to ensure we deliver. First time, every time

Creating an even greater emergency and putting more people in danger. So if you are not sure what goes where? Or that battery is looking somewhat dodgy. Give our experts a call today and we will handle it safely and securely

Can I Really Use My Cars Cigarette Lighter ?

This method will slowly recharge the battery, but will not immediately allow you to crank the engine. As you can see at Glen Burnie Towing Services we have a range of solutions to handle all our clients jump start or booting needs
