As a trucker, you know that anything could happen while you’re on the road. Like other drivers, you have to consider what might happen if you were stranded or in need of help. Even with maintenance before a trip, your semi could still breakdown.
Here is why you need roadside assistance, including commercial towing coverage.
What Could Happen?
Unfortunately, several scenarios could occur when you’re on the road. You could lose a tire or suffer a flat. You may be on a cross-country trip when your engine burns out. If your transmission overheats, you could start to lose fluid. If you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere with your big rig, what can you do? You can’t tow the truck on your own and you may not have the mechanic skills to fix it. It’s not uncommon for truckers to lack the equipment necessary to get on the road again.
What Does Roadside Assistance Include?
Roadside assistance can save you thousands of dollars when you’re on the road. Some of the services provided include:
- Flat tire assistance
- Mechanic service
- Oil or fluid delivery
- Jump starts
Some programs even offer hotel and other travel discounts to their customers.
As a trucker, you need to be prepared for anything. Roadside assistance can help truckers breathe easier.
