Mr. Tow Tire & Auto Repair
My driver Donald is an excellent representative for your company. After having a heart racing spin on the interstate and stopping in the ditch I had to call a tow truck to winch me out. After calling 3 other companies and being asked to wait for at least 2 hours I was fortunate enough to find Mr. Tow. A driver was en route within 5 mins of the call and he arrived promptly in a downpour and after ensuring I was not harmed he proceeded to perform a miracle of getting my car out of an embankment that had a river running through it. After freeing me from the swamp he made sure my vehicle was gonna start and than charged me exactly what the gentleman on the phone quoted me which is a rarity and in the state my car was in with only one tire accessible and the pouring rain, I wouldn't have had a problem if the price was more. I'm home safe thanks to a great company and a great representative in Donald. Thank you Mr. Tow.

Wanted to get rid of a car with a blown head gasket. After talking with a few different companies, I went with Mr. Tow because they seemed the most legit. The guy I talked to on the phone explained the legality of the business and what to watch out for with DMV. They arrived at the agreed on time and the whole process was simple and easy. Really trustworthy company.

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.
