As a trucker, you have the benefit of seeing a lot of country throughout the year. Unfortunately, as far as you travel, it isn’t unlikely that you may suffer a breakdown or flat tire in a rural area without help. Here is what you can expect when you have truck road service as a part of your insurance package.
24/7 Towing Options
Breakdowns don’t happen on your timetable. Without roadside assistance, you could be trapped on the side of the road for hours. Instead of cutting into your delivery time further, having roadside assistance connects you automatically to a towing company with the capability to remove your big rig from the side of the road.
Additionally, you’re more likely to be connected to a mechanic who knows the ins and outs of semi trucks. Mobile mechanics can get you back on the road in no time.
Driving on a flat tire is not only a hazard for your truck, but it’s a hazard for other drivers. You’re likely to have approximately five flat tires over the course of a year, so it makes sense to have built-in help at all times. Driving on a flat can damage your rims and spread rubber over the roadways.
Roadside assistance provides a variety of services from truckers, ranging from towing, flat tires to mechanic services and lockout service. You never have to be stranded without help.
