How to shop for roadside assistance
No matter if your vehicle is new or used, you’re not immune to problems on the road — or in a parking lot! These issues can range from a dead battery, a flat tire or damaged windshield wipers to getting stuck in mud or snow or locking keys inside the car. In short, the reasons you may require roadside assistance are numerous. In this article, the Auto Value Certified Service Centers team provides tips on choosing the best roadside assistance service for your needs.
Most roadside assistance programs offer similar standard services, including:
- Fuel delivery
- Flat tire replacement
- Door unlocking
- Towing to a repair shop
Additional services, such as oil delivery, a ride home or minor on-site repairs may be available depending on the company’s options and packages.
Factors to consider
Various companies provide roadside assistance services, including insurance companies, mechanical service retailers, credit cards and car manufacturers. Consider the following factors to choose the right program for you:
- Your travel habits. This includes the distance you usually drive, whether you travel within or outside Quebec and the type of roads you drive on.
- The age and condition of your vehicle. In general, older vehicles are more prone to issues on the road.
- Your level of risk tolerance. For peace of mind, it’s best to opt for a comprehensive service.
- Your budget. Consider the value for money of your membership.
