What's the easiest way to get a car towed?

My car broke down at my friend's house and I need to get it towed to a repair shop. I'm a broke student and I need it to get to work, so I don't have a lot of options here. What's the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to get it towed?

Answer
“Car trouble is exhausting, especially when you don’t have a lot of money to start with. However, you can easily get your car towed by using the towing and labor coverage on your car insurance policy.
Towing and labor is the equivalent to roadside assistance and most policies will cover towing up to 15-25 miles. And the good news is that it’s fairly cheap to add to your policy. The average person spends about $10 to $15 a month for that extra peace of mind.
If you don’t have towing and labor coverage, it may end up costing you a bit of cash out of pocket. However, there are a couple of ways you can save on your car insurance so you have more cash in your pocket for emergencies like these:
  • Look into good student insurance discounts. If you have good grades, you may be eligible for a discount on your policy, so check with your provider!
  • Shop car insurance policies on the Jerry app to make sure you’re getting the best deal on your coverage. We’ll get you dozens of quotes so that all you have to do is pick the plan that works best for you.
Best of luck with your car issues, and here’s hoping you can get it easily taken care of!”
