Progressive introduces Heavy Truck Roadside Assistance coverage
Progressive is offering Heavy Truck Roadside Assistance as an optional coverage to its commercial auto customers.
To offer this coverage, Progressive is collaborating with TTN Fleet Solutions, which operates an extensive network of heavy-duty service providers.
Heavy Truck Roadside Assistance can be used throughout the US and in 10 Canadian provinces, regardless of the policy state, and the coverage is available to local, regional and long-haul truckers. Currently, coverage is available in most states for eligible customers and vehicles, with plans to be available across the continental US (including Alaska) by the end of 2023.
Some of the coverage details include:
- Up to $500 in labor at the site of disablement and up to $5,000 in towing to the nearest qualified repair facility for the insured vehicle and attached trailer ($250 deductible applies at time of service)
- Coverage for insured vehicle and the attached trailer
- Covers mechanical or electrical breakdown, battery failure, flat tire, lock-out, insufficient fuel/fluid, or entrapment in snow, mud, water, or sand within 100 feet of a road
- Covers up to three roadside incidents per insured vehicle per six-month period
“Heavy Truck Roadside Assistance offers peace of mind on the road and efficiently connects covered customers with a qualified service provider that specializes in handling heavy vehicle breakdowns. We are bringing this top-requested offering to market to help customers overcome challenges on the road in a time of need and get them back on the road as soon as possible.” – Peter Niro, truck product development manager at Progressive.
