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.

“No, a box truck isn’t often covered by AAA or similar roadside assistance programs.
In all likelihood, even towing and labor coverage won’t cover this through your insurance company.
Instead, you’ll have to get commercial roadside assistance.
It’s very expensive though, often in the $300 per year or more range. But if your truck is on its last leg, it might be worth the price tag.”

Will I get reimbursed for a tow by the dealership?
"Will the car dealership reimburse me for the tow considering that the lug nut removal tool was never there? I just bought a Nissan Rogue Sport that has locking lugnuts. Long story short, I got a flat tire and I couldn't get the tire off because I couldn't find the tool. I called roadside assistance and they have the same problem, so they send me a tow truck. The dealership closed, so I couldn't tow it there. I eventually end up towing it to my house at a cost of $110."

Does Avis offer standard roadside assistance?
What is extended roadside assistance? I'm renting a car through Avis and I just want to know if they have a standard roadside assistance program. All I can see is an extended roadside assistance add-on.

Is roadside assistance worth it if I'm a fairly handy mechanic?
Is there any value to getting roadside assistance? I'm not a certified mechanic by any means but I know my way around a battery, jack, and flat tire. I've never run out of gas, and I have a spare key hidden in a discreet location.
