What is Auto Roadside Assistance and Do You Need it?

Auto roadside assist is the simplest way to get essential help if your car breaks down at the side of the road. Professional assistance from a competent mechanic is only a phone call away if you have roadside assistance. There are different roadside assistance packages, and there are varying degrees of cover available. Let’s take a closer look at some of the usual inclusions that you might expect to have, depending on your specific product.

A Towing Service

This is an incredibly useful option that you really should have included in your roadside assistance package. If you break down and your car cannot be fixed at the side of the road it will be towed to the destination of your choice. Do be aware that generally, there will be a limit to the towing distances allowed.

A Replacement Battery

A car battery can fail at the most inconvenient times, and this could leave you stranded. If you’re lucky, there may be someone around to help you with a jump start, but if you’re in an isolated location, you may be out of luck. If you have this option as part of your roadside assistance policy, a determination will be made to jump start your car or replace your car battery with a fresh unit. Of course, you will have to pay for the new battery, but at least you won’t have to worry about needing another jump start for the rest of your journey.

An Emergency Fuel Delivery

Have you ever run out of fuel at one time or another? You’re not alone! It’s unlikely you’ve had this happen with a tank of spare fuel on hand to get to the next petrol station. They aren’t going to fill your tank, but if you have this roadside assistance option, you can get an emergency fuel delivery to get you down the road to the next fuel stop and a little in reserve.

A Flat Tyre

There are many reasons why your tyre might be flat, and you may find that you need assistance. Even a basic roadside assistance package should include a flat tyre change to get you back on the road quickly.

An Emergency Key Service

This is also known as a “locksmith service” or a similar type of name. This part of a roadside assistance policy is designed to get you back into your car if you’ve lost your keys, locked them inside the vehicle or they have been stolen.
