Five minutes is the perfect length of time for reading a magazine article, conducting some small talk, or, if you're a technician from Call Charley Roadside Assistance, opening an accidentally locked car.

Typically, they can reach your location in less than one hour with the necessary tools, and address roadside troubles from dead batteries to punctured tires. They'll even deliver emergency fuel to cars that have run out of gas.

Royal Glass, a 40-year veteran of quality glass repair, employs skilled technicians and follows an in-house policy to return every vehicle to its pre-purchased Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Handy staffers stabilize up to three dings in the glass surface, securing the damage caused by rocks, debris, or vengeful lawnmowers. The service stabilizes the damage before it can grow into large, untreatable cracks, and restores visibility for the driver. A headlight restoration yields lucid illumination after technicians tend to soiled lenses and remove light-obstructing films, residues, and cynical philosophies. Clear lenses allow bulbs to project their brightest rays forward, keeping roads properly lit so drivers can safely navigate dark streets.
