March 3, 2022

Are you worried that you or your employees will need a jump start on the side of the road? Do you fear the day that you experience a flat tire while driving? If so, then you need to learn all that you can about how to get cheap roadside service. 

Believe it or not, roadside service doesn’t have to burn a hole through your wallet. By investing in the right plan for your family, business, or your freelance work, you can have total peace of mind.

See below for an in-depth guide on how to get cheap roadside service and assistance that fits your budget.

What to Look for in Roadside Assistance Plans

Perhaps you’re a freelancer that wants to make sure you’ve got the right plan for your needs. Maybe you just want to ensure your family members never end up on the side of the road without help.

Whatever the case might be, it’s important to look for roadside assistance plans that work. Ones that can help you get the most for your investment. 

First, look to see how you would find a provider nearby. Here at Alliance Direct Benefits, our customers can easily locate a service provider through our app. Once it’s taken care of, they simply upload the receipt and get reimbursed for up to $125!

Make sure you understand the details of the roadside assistance plan you select. Our Association Motor Plan (AMP) has all of its details listed out for you to see. These include:

  • Coverage of up to $125 per event
  • Coverage for up to 2 events per anniversary year
  • Available roadside assistance only 2 business days after you begin your membership

This plan will help you control your costs. With our cost-efficient AMP roadside assistance, you can have coverage that fits your budget and your needs.

What Your Roadside Assistance Should Cover

First, make sure to have the right mindset. You want to find a cheap roadside service that can reimburse you for certain services. That way, the provider will cover the cost of the receipt up to an agreed-upon price (for us, it’s $125 per event). 

Once you understand that, you need to look into the reimbursable services that your roadside service plan offers. With our Association Motor Plan, you’ll be able to be reimbursed for things like:

  • Tire Changes
  • Towing
  • Lockout Services
  • Winching Out
  • Jump Starts
  • Fuel Delivery
  • Installation of Parts 

But don’t let those be the end of it. For extra coverage, you can look at other benefits that the roadside assistance plan offers. 

First, do they offer travel assistance reimbursement? In other words: if your car is inoperable after a car collision 100 miles or more from home, will the provider reimburse you for other arrangements that you have to make? We cover up to $500.

If your car is stolen, is your provider willing to incentivize that someone finds it by paying them a stolen vehicle reward? We provide up to $5,000 for such a scenario.

Our Association Motor Plan can be found in either our Value Plan or Plus Plan. If you need more insight, please reach out to us by phone and we can explain all your options.

The Benefits of Our Roadside Assistance Mobile App

Any provider can agree to reimburse you for the roadside assistance you require, but what are they willing to do to go the extra mile? See below for how our AMP mobile app can help you when you’re in a pinch.

Doesn’t it seem like you only need ever need roadside assistance when you’re in an unfamiliar place? Our mobile roadside assistance app can alleviate this struggle with GPS location.

Using the GPS, we’ll identify where you are and point you towards all trusted service providers closest to your location. 

This can minimize the time it takes to get the assistance you need. They can help you with jump-starting your car, changing out a flat tire, or even towing the car if need be.

Quick Process for Reimbursement Requests

Some of you may have been burned by reimbursement services in the past. They may have required you to go through an exhaustive process to request a reimbursement.

Our AMP mobile app has you covered there as well! The app has the technology available so that you can submit a request with just a picture of your receipt.

In just a few clicks you can have your reimbursement request submitted, negating any need for you to fax the receipt, visit a physical location, etc.

With our AMP mobile app, you can check the status of your request at any time. It will let you know where we are in the process; of course, you can always contact us with any concerns as well!
