As a Classic Auto Insurance agent, you can be proud to offer your clients an exceptional Roadside Assistance program. We’re also finding the public’s need for roadside assistance is growing. In the four years, more roadside emergency responses are occurring than ever before, particularly those that involve flat tires and lockouts – which may suggest restorers may want to re-think a new trend of removing spare tires and upgrading to keyless entry.
Seasonal Demand Is Now
With winter approaching, it’s more important than ever for your to suggest roadside assistance as an option to your clients. Especially if they drive your classic, collectible vehicle or supercar in winter, cold weather increases the likelihood of automotive difficulties by a large margin in a variety of ways:
- Low temperatures can cause old batteries to die.
- Low temperatures can cause leaky tires to go flat faster.
- Keys are locked in vehicles more frequently when they’re left running for heat.
- Ice and snow on the road cause frequent spin outs.
Features of Classic Auto’s Roadside Assistance Program
When your clients elects the Classic Auto Nationwide Roadside Assistance coverage* a simple call with a toll-free number provides them with any of these services at no additional charge:
Flat Tire Assistance – In the United States, around seven flat tires occur every second. Flat tires are the single most common automotive break down. Overall, around 27% of all roadside emergencies concern tires. By the numbers, your clients are likely to experience five flat tires on average in their lifetimes. As such, the flat tire assistance service is the most valuable service you can provide. If your client doesn’t have a spare, we’ll tow them to a tire shop to get a replacement.
Lockout Service – We’ve all been there. You leave the car running for just a moment while you run back inside the house. It only takes a couple of seconds. When you get back, you pull on the door handle and it refuses to open. Lockout services are often expensive on their own and asking for help from law enforcement often leads to tow-truck service on your client’s dime. Lockouts are also in the top three most common roadside emergencies, so the lockout service offers peace of mind. Plus, we connect your client with professional, reliable locksmiths.
Jump Starts – There’s nothing worse for your client than trying to start the car on a blustery winter day, just to hear the dreaded click of a dead battery when they turn the ignition.
