Why do you need Roadside Assistance?

If you’ve spent any amount of time out on the road, you know that the unexpected can happen at any time. That’s why, when you rent a car from Everything Fleet 24/7 roadside assistance is included so you can have peace of mind knowing that you are covered should the unexpected happen.

Here at the common reasons renters use roadside assistance:

  1. Flat tyre – the most common reason people need roadside assistance is because of a flat tyre or a blowout that they cannot change themselves. Even if you know how to change a tyre, sometimes the lug nuts are too tight or the road you’re stopped on is too dangerous to attempt it. Whatever the reason, our roadside assistance partner will help!
  2. Run out of fuel – another common reason is running out of fuel. Often, when driving a rental, you aren’t familiar with the car’s fuel tank and you may think you can make it farther without filling up. We understand, it happens, and our roadside assistance team are always there to help.
  3. Locked out of your car – locking your keys in your car happens. You may think you have them in your purse, you lock the doors, and then see them lying on the passenger side seat. Don’t sweat, no one is perfect and our roadside assistance is there to help.
  4. Dead battery – this is another common one, especially in an unfamiliar car. It’s easy to leave the lights on and run down the battery when you aren’t used to the buttons and switches in your rental vehicle. Whether you need a jump or there’s an issue with the starter, roadside assistance will be there.
  5. Minor repairs – finally, you may need roadside assistance for something small like low oil pressure, water for a radiator, or a clogged filter. These issues can occur and if you aren’t an experienced mechanic, they feel like a bigger deal than they are. A minor repair can easily be resolved by roadside assistance, so you can safely get back on the road toward your destination.

At Everything Fleet we rent only the latest, low kilometre vehicles,  so we hope you don’t need roadside assistance. However we love giving you the peace of mind knowing that it’s there if you need it.
