“The cost of a jump start is all about circumstances and where you are. If you’re in a parking lot, you might be able to find someone willing to jump start your car for free.
If you’re stranded somewhere and you have to call AAA or a like service as a non-member, you might be looking at $50 or more to get a jump start.
You should consider adding towing and labor coverage to your policy.
This will allow you to get jump-start coverage at no extra cost other than the small add-on fee ($15 to $25 a year) to your policy.”

What should I do if a tow truck can't access my car? I live in a downtown area and my car battery is dead. A good samaritan tried to jump start my car, but to no avail. I called roadside assistance, but their tow truck can't get inside the parking garage.
