    Auto wreckers perform two services. The first is to remove vehicles from the road after an accident. The second is to dispose of vehicles that are no longer able to run. A tow truck may move a vehicle by two means. A vehicle that is not damaged or only minorly damaged may be towed, with the front drive wheels lifted off the ground. This method is also used to remove illegally parked vehicles that are then impounded. Badly damaged vehicles are generally lifted onto a flatbed truck. The wrecker may also transport the driver and any passengers to an auto shop. Many accident recovery companies are independent and take vehicles to the nearest shop. Others may be run out of a specific business. Normally, they offer emergency towing 24 hours a day, although they may charge a premium for late night work. Because of this, many drivers opt to pay a monthly rate for roadside assistance. Roadside assistance is also provided by most car rental companies. Cars involved in accidents may be repaired or, in extreme cases, written off. Wreckers are often involved in conversation with the driver's insurance company as well as the vehicle owner. In some cases a vehicle may be impounded for examination, for example if there is a criminal investigation. Cars that cannot be salvaged are generally taken to junk yards where they are stripped down for usable parts. The remainder is then put in a crusher for recycling. Vehicles that are not written off are taken to a collision repair specialist. Most wreckers have a maximum distance they will transport a damaged vehicle. In some cases, this is dictated by law.
