Why Go To The Dealer
Had my 08 BMW 528i towed here today and I rode in the tow truck like a dork. I went into the office to explain what was going on and was told that my car was already being looked at - I forgot I had explained it to Mark on the phone (long day). I asked Mark how I could get to the main road to catch a bus home and he told me they were going to try to get me fixed and out today. Well, I was out of there with a new starter and a BMW with new life in a little under 3 hours. Having bought the car 2 weeks ago I was nervous that I was going to be mugged by some auto shop for all I had. They are the real deal. Very nice people there and they know what they're doing. The price was good, too. Thanks, Mark.
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.
