Car assistance services come in handy when we experience an unexpected breakdown out there on the highway. Whether in a local county road or the middle of a major highway, a stalled vehicle can be a thorn in your side and no fun at all. It’s important that you have put in place some precautions just in case you have a problem and your car goes kaput. Always keep a cell phone with you to have a way of obtaining roadside services quickly. Rushing for the most available service is however counterproductive. You need to take your time and select the best option. The following are things to consider when looking for car assistance.
The distance of the tow Various companies have policies on the maximum distance covered by their services. For example some services will only tow you 10 miles. Others will charge more for anything over 5 miles. Some companies offer variable distances depending on service plan while others have a fixed maximum distance. Auto clubs generally cover small distances even with the most expensive packages. The number of tows per given plan varies with the type of plan you have but most starter plans will only tow you once a year. While others give you two every month including minor roadside services. In this case you better go with the higher priced plan if you want to be towed more than once a year. However, One thing to remember is that the more the tows you get in your plan, the higher the price.
How many people are covered in the plan? Some plans cover both the car and the driver while others cover the driver alone. You need a plan that will ensure your vehicle gets roadside assistance regardless of who is driving it. This is because, at times we tend to share our cars with others.
Cost of the service Cost is an important consideration vis a vis the quality of service. Some companies are simply do not give you good service. They might offer high prices and provide ordinary or substandard service. Look for a company that can give you good service while still maintaining and affordable price.
Towing equipment We all want our vehicles to be safely towed to the garage using the best equipment possible. Always consider the towing vehicles and tools the company uses to get the job done. Poor equipment might lead to faults that can cause damage to the vehicle.
