The Benefits of Roadside Assistance

As a trucking professional, you have a lot on your schedule every day. From picking up hauls and dropping them off on time to taking care of your mind and body while on the road, the last thing you want to worry about is the potential breakdown or dead battery. Even the slightest hiccup in the road can sideline your truck until help comes. But if you don’t have commercial truck insurance that focuses on roadside assistance, you could be in major trouble.

Getting stranded on the side of the road as a commercial truck driver is expensive and if you don’t have the right commercial truck insurance protection, it can sideline you for good. Protect your business and your truck with the right roadside commercial truck insurance program to help keep risks around breakdowns and flat tires low.

Here’s are the benefits of roadside assistance you should be looking for in a commercial truck insurance plan.

Vehicle Towing

When a covered vehicle breaks down en route to its drop off destination, vehicle towing will come in and provide the resources to get you the best towing option available in your area. Typically, this coverage provides towing services up to 50 miles away or the nearest qualified service facility.

Mobile Mechanic

At Western Truck Insurance, we offer the expertise and relief of our mobile mechanic services. When a vehicle’s disablement can be resolved on the side of the road, a mobile mechanic can come out, assess the issue, and help you avoid getting a tow so you can get back on the road.

Lock-Out Help

Locking your keys in your cabin is the type of risk no one wants to think about. Something so simple can completely shut down your schedule. No keys means no driving. With this help, Western Insurance ensures you’ll get the right assistance to get your keys and get back behind the wheel.

Fluid Delivery

From overheating to running out of fuel or needing an oil change, there are times when fluids need to be replenished. This coverage comes standard with Western Truck Insurance, so drivers who suffer an avoidable but easy-to-fix breakdown can get the relief they need.

Here are some other benefits to having roadside assistance with Western:
