Can you call Uber for a jump start?
Would Uber give me a jumpstart if I gave them a big tip? My car wouldn't start due to battery problems. I called my roadside assistance program, but they said it would be three hours for a jump.

“Obviously, a technician on your towing and labor coverage is the better choice, as they may be able to diagnose problems if it’s more than just the battery.
However, calling Uber might be a smart move.
They’ll be more than happy to take your money for a jump start. Giving them $20 or something similar is probably the best move.
But again, you might want to call your roadside assistance policy or AAA (if you’re a member) in case something is drastically wrong with your car.”

Is car battery replacement available 24/7 with most roadside assistance programs?
If my car battery dies at any time day or night, will roadside assistance give me a jump or replace my battery? I don't think this will happen, but I want to make sure I'm covered in case it does.

Will roadside assistance tow a box truck?
Does AAA or similar roadside assistance cover towing of a box truck? I have an old U-Haul that I use to tow furniture. It's a bit older and I worry about it breaking down.
