FAQ's About Roadside Service

If you have a child, a niece, a nephew, or a friend who is just about to turn sixteen and get their driver's license, you may have tons of gifts in mind of things to give them, but what about one that you know they will use like a roadside service that offers towing? 

What Is a Roadside Service? 

Your car insurance covers you in the case of a car accident, but what about those times when you need a little bit of help on the side of the road, but it's not enough to file a claim? With roadside assistance, they can help you in the case that you need a tow, that you need gas in your car, that you need your car jumpstarted, or that you lock your keys inside of your car. 

Do People Actually Use Roadside Service? 

There are some types of services out there that are considered to be gimmicks, but roadside assistance isn't one of them. Imagine if your loved one were to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire or a broken-down car without a family member close by? What would they do? Who would they call for some help? When they have a roadside assistance service that they can rely on, they can get a tow to an auto shop for free. 

Do You Have to Pay Additional Fees? 

The type of service that you get your loved one for their birthday will determine just how many tows they get every year. For instance, if they have an older car that tends to break down a lot, then their particular service may only cover five tows a year, so if they go over that, they may have to pay a little bit extra. 

Is It Expensive? 

One of the particularly unique things about roadside service is that it isn't expensive; especially when you find out how much an individual tow costs. According to statistics, the average car tow costs between $35 and $125 per tow, but when you are covered by roadside assistance you won't have to worry about that kind of cost as long as you don't exceed the amount.  

Giving a sixteen-year-old something practical for their birthday may make you sound like a complete dud until they are on the side of the road and in some serious need of roadside assistance.

Towing Troubles: Understanding Automotive Emergencies And Response

As I was teaching my teenage child how to drive, it suddenly struck me how imperative it was that my children learn basic automotive repair and emergency care. I also wanted to make sure that they knew not only how to call a towing service, but to have one that they could rely on locally at all times. I spent a lot of time talking with local towing companies about tips and tricks that they would recommend for young drivers and learned a lot about the industry. The pages here will help you to learn more about that as well, and will hopefully help you to keep yourself and your family safer on the road.
