The cost of repairing the tire, mounting or dismounting of chains will not be covered by this service. Also, motorcycles tires will not be changed on site, motorcycles will be taken to the nearest service station equipped to change motorcycle tires.

Fuel Delivery is for a service provider to deliver an emergency supply of fuel if the member has run out of gas. Depending on which membership you purchase, the cost of the fuel may or may not be covered by the membership. Fuel delivery will be based on availability as some service providers may not carry spare fuel due to their own company safety regulations. For safety reasons, we are unable to deliver propane. If fuel is not available, a tow to the nearest service station will be provided within your designated towing distance.

Breakdown Assistance is for onsite troubleshooting of a mechanical breakdown. The service provider may not be a qualified mechanic and this service is not intended to replace the services of a qualified mechanic. It is intended to assist the member with vehicle problems, if the vehicle does not work, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest service provider within your designated towing distance.

Towing Service will be arranged for your vehicle up to the limits as described by your membership plan or to the closest service facility.


Additional Coverages

Breakdown Cab Fare is the amount we will pay for a taxi to assist the member during a breakdown.

Recovery Coverage is when the vehicle requires a winching service to get unstuck. This coverage is not intended for off road protection as the vehicle must by adjacent to a regularly maintain ashpalt or gravel road.

* - A ton is 2000 pounds (907.19 kg), so does it follow that a half-ton truck weighs 1000 pounds (453.5 kg)? Actually, the name doesn't refer to the weight of the truck. In fact, half-ton pickups weigh much more than that. The weight of a truck without cargo or passengers is called the curb weight. For example, many 2007 half-ton pickups have curb weights between 9000 (4082.3 kg) and 11000 (4989.5 kg) pounds [source: Edmunds].

The "half-ton" description loosely refers to the truck's payload capacity. This means that the truck can carry up to 1000 pounds (453.5 kg) of cargo and passengers in the cab and bed. But wait a minute: If you take a look at the stats on modern half-ton pickups, you'll notice that their payload capacities exceed 1000 pounds (453.5 kg). Although early half-ton pickups could carry max loads of 1000 pounds (453.5 kg), since at least the 1960s, new and improved half-ton pickups have been able to safely carry more, surpassing their namesakes [source: Autotropolis].

But old habits die hard, and the name "half-ton" has stuck around to this day. It's still helpful as a general classification term, differentiating the group from the larger, heavy-duty three-quarter-ton pickups and one-ton pickups (also obsolete terms). A better way to find out the maximum payload capacity is to check the individual truck's specs online or in the owner's manual to see what the manufacturer recommends. [source: How Stuff Works]
