“Since the car that needs towing isn’t listed on your policy, you probably can’t get a tow. However, not every technician is going to check the VIN or other details of your car.
You could attempt to use your service to tow the car, but if Safeco refuses, you might have to pay them for their time anyway.
As the name would imply, roadside assistance, or towing and labor coverage are for emergencies, not just when you need a tow.”

Is it true that driving less than 50 miles a day means you pay less for car insurance?
I've started working remotely so I drive less than I used to — I don't go above 50 miles a day. Does this mean I can pay less for insurance?

Should I refinance my Honda Fit and put it on Turo while I purchase a new car for my own use?
"I bought a car that doesn't fit me. At six foot five and 330 pounds, I don't know why I thought a Honda Fit would fit me. That said, I want to refinance this car and list it on Turo to pay down the loan. At the same time, I want to buy a new car for my own personal use. Does this sound like a good plan?"
