With a new year upon us, there’s no better time to reassess your business needs and create plans to protect your most important assets. After being in the business for more than 20 years, we know that it doesn’t matter if you operate just a couple of trucks or manage an entire fleet of hundreds -- protecting your investments and your bottom line have to be a priority. So, what does that look like? For starters, we recommend you look into solid roadside assistance plans that suit your business needs.
The Benefits of Roadside Assistance
Trucking companies both big and small must understand the risks involved with operating without some sort of roadside assistance plan. One of the most frustrating (and scary) situations an owner-operator can be in is to be stranded on the side of the road with an inoperable rig and no help on the way. Imagine having a tire blow out or an engine overheat while driving across the country in the middle of the night. Organizations like RigNation offer 24-hour commercial truck roadside assistance and insurance options that can help get you, your drivers, and your cargo out of sticky situations.
Some roadside assistance plans cost only a few dollars a day and provide critical services like towing, jumpstart, tire replacement, and fluid assistance (just to name a few) when you need it most. This is the kind of peace of mind that trucking companies and owner-operators should never have to live without.
Minimize Your Downtime and Protect Your Bottom Line
It’s hard to predict when and if something will go wrong while you’re driving. That’s why it’s important to do all you can to avoid putting your job and your cargo in jeopardy. Having a comprehensive roadside assistance plan in place is an inexpensive benefit that will help keep your truck rolling, minimize your downtime, and protect your bottom line.
