We had a great experience with this company, they came to our rescue within about 20 minutes from the time they were contacted. Ed did a super job fixing the tire that had blown on our fifth wheel and he was even willing to show us where we needed to come back to in Amarillo Texas to get two new tires. Ed also fixed some wires on our fifth wheel that we damaged when the tire blew out. He also cut off the damaged fender so we could drive safely. We would highly recommend this company. We would definitely use them again if needed.

Fantastic!We got a key stuck in the ignition of one of our vehicles, while it was running, and didn't know what to do. Mr. Alvarado was there to save the day within 20 minutes, knew exactly what to do, and replaced the entire ignition switch in less than two hours. His rates are very reasonable ($45 to come out, and $85 per hour), and even so he gave us a slight break on the price. I would absolutely put my trust in him again!

It was a rainy day, and I called Alvarado road service. I was about 150 miles away from Amarillo. They did their best to find my location and help me when I was in the time of need! They had reasonable prices and very helpful employees. They found the problem instantly! Thank you Alvarado Road Service!

I broke down out at the Canadian river after midnight and within 45 minutes the driver was out there and towed us, truck and atv trailer, all the way down to the apartment on soncy and only charged us $175, even though it was so late at night and such a heavy load. Would definitely recommend.

Tips & Advices
Yes, most roadside assistance coverage plans offer towing services. There might be certain restrictions, however. For example, the plan may only cover towing services for a certain number of miles. Drivers should check with their providers for details.
Which cars are covered depends on the roadside assistance provider. AAA services are available to members and not specific to any vehicle. As long as members pays their dues and have their membership card on hand, they can use AAA for someone else's car. Generally, auto insurance plans cover the car itself, not the driver, so people can't use their roadside assistance for another. However, details vary between providers, plans and local laws. Drivers should consult with their insurance providers to see whose cars are covered.
Roadside assistance coverage varies depending on the provider. However, they generally include:
  • Tire change
  • Battery jump start
  • Towing services
  • Locksmith service
  • Minimal mechanical labor
  • Delivery of oil, fuel, batteries or other parts
If a driver has a flat tire and no spare, roadside assistance services can deliver a new one. However, these services will not pay for the cost of the tire. That will be the driver's responsibility. Based on the location, some will tow a car to a tire dealer.
Most roadside assistance plans offer gas delivery and service. However, clients are generally responsible for the cost of the gas.
