If it is a dead battery, a flat tire, an empty tank or you simply locked yourself out of your vehicle, Emergency Roadside Service coverage from ERIE is here to help.
To learn more, we sat down with Jon Bloom, vice president, Personal Auto, to help shed some light on the Emergency side service coverage.
Do I automatically get Roadside Service coverage with my autopolicy?
The simple answer to the question: No. However, the Roadside Service coverage is an optional feature of your ERIE car policy. 1 It is easy to add and do not burn a hole in your wallet. As a bonus, you will have peace of mind knowing that ERIE has your back if something happens, especially in bad weather.
How do I get tire service?
If you don't already have Roadside Service coverage, call your ERIE agent and talk to them about adding the * feature. For about $ 5 per vehicle, you can add Roadside Service coverage to your current coverage.
My car died and I stranded on the highway. What should I do?
To use the Roadside Service, call 888-FOR-ERIE (888-367-3743), Option 2. You will be connected to Agero, ERIE's Country Roadside Assistant.
One of the great things about this add-on is that there are no deductibles, so in most cases you do not have to pay anything up.
Agero invoices ERIE directly. The service is always there for you 24/7, so if it is 4 o'clock or Christmas day and your vehicle breaks down, no worries.
What can Roadside Service Coverage help with?
Roadside Service Coverage from Erie Insurance can help you with lockout, flat tires, mechanical disturbances and dead batteries. It can even save the day when your car runs out of gas. It also covers the cost of pulling your car out of the grass or snow if you end up within 10 meters of the highway. (If the distance is greater than 10 meters, it may be a cost that is not a cost).
What if I need help, but I'm not sure if I have the coverage?
If you are not sure if you have this coverage and your vehicle is broken down, you can still call Agero. They can look up your policy and see if you have this additional coverage. If you don't, but you still need help, Agero can help you. You only have to pay on site for any towing or service calls.
Emergency road cover is just another way ERIE is with you every mile you travel and every turn you take. If you add this coverage, you can always call us. There is never any "I said so" about running with your low fuel light. (Promise.)
