If you own an antique or classic car or any other type of vintage vehicle, you must pay attention to the roadside assistance services offered by insurance companies. It’s not enough that they offer immediate assistance during emergencies. It has to be the kind of auto road service assistance that’s specifically suited for antique or classic vehicles.
Towing Services – In most situations, a flat bed towing service is the safest option for your car. With a flatbed towing, your vehicle is slowly rolled up to the flat bed before it’s delivered to a repair shop or service site. If you choose other types of towing services where your vehicle is literally dragged behind the tow truck, your antique car could suffer additional damage.
Locksmith Services – There are many situations when you might need the services of a locksmith. Your insurance company should include them in your policy. What do you do when you accidentally leave your keys in the car or when you lose your key? With a locksmith, you wouldn’t just be able to have your car unlocked but you’re also more likely to have a replacement key made immediately.
Payment Options – You must always be provided with multiple payment options when you call your insurance company for help. The best option, however, is to be allowed to simply sign a receipt for the service provided and work out the payment when you – and your car – are completely out of danger.
