Affordable Wrecker & Towing
I am a female driving my rv and towing my car. Last night, my tow dolly blew a tire and I was stranded on I-10. This was my 3rd tow company to call - the first 2 were rude and very unhelpful. Affordable Towing was immediately helpful to my plight, agreed to come get me and did so within the hour. The very nice owner put my dolly on his flat bed, and towed my car with me following in the rv. He dropped us off at a tire company and helped me find lodging. He even gave me his phone number should I need more help. I cannot thank you enough!!!!!

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.
