How do I get my car towed to a mechanic?

I'm going on a road trip and I'm worried about what might happen if my car breaks down. How would I get it towed to a mechanic?

It’s a good idea to plan ahead!
If your car breaks down and you don’t have roadside assistance or other proper coverage, you’ll have to pay for the tow out of pocket. That can get awfully expensive, even if the mechanic is relatively close to your location.
That’s why you should consider a roadside assistance through Jerry. Jerry’s membership provides you with industry-leading roadside assistance, including benefits like towing, lockout service, and a mechanics hotline.
You can also choose to add towing and labor coverage to your current car insurance policy. This type of policy is similar to roadside assistance except you pay a certain amount each month instead of yearly. It also covers other types of incidents, such as:
  • Dead battery
  • Flat tire
  • Car lockouts
  • Fuel delivery
If you’re interested in roadside assistance, or any other car insurance, use Jerry! Jerry is an insurance broker app that allows you to compare dozens of quotes from car insurance companies in minutes. Jerry will even take care of all the paperwork for you!
