Roadside Assistance FAQs

General Information
  1. Roadside Assistance is a service offered by Verizon that provides everything from battery boosts to towing service. With Roadside Assistance you're covered anywhere in the US, Puerto Rico and Canada - whether you're in your own vehicle, a friend's vehicle or a rental. You can even lend your mobile device to a friend or family member, and they'll be covered, too. Your mobile device simply needs to be at the location where service is provided.

    For more information, visit www.verizonwireless.com/roadsideassistance.



  2. It costs $3/month for each enrolled line on your account.

    If you're not enrolled in the program, there is a charge of $89.95 for each time you use Verizon Roadside Assistance.



  3. Services covered by Roadside Assistance at no charge for eligible vehicles include:

    • Towing up to 10 miles
    • Charging your car's battery
    • Delivering three gallons of gas or diesel fuel
    • Removing a flat tire and replacing it with your spare tire
    • Winching

    Note: The following vehicles aren't eligible for services:

    • RVs
    • Boats
    • Trailers
    • Vehicles with more than two axles
    • Vehicles with more than four wheels
    • Vehicles designed or modified for commercial or heavy-duty use (e.g., limousines, emergency vehicles)
    • Vehicles exceeding 10,000 lbs gross vehicle weight


  4. Yes. The service follows the device, so you must have an enrolled device with you to receive Roadside Assistance.



  5. Another person can receive Roadside Assistance if:

    • The member name and mobile device number are confirmed
    • The enrolled device is present where assistance is needed

    The service follows the phone, not any one individual or vehicle.



  6. Your coverage becomes effective 48 hours after your enrollment in the program.

    If immediate service is needed within the first 48 hours, you'll be charged the Pay Per Use rate of $89.95.



  7. Yes, there is a limit of four service claims within one year. Service claims reset on your enrollment anniversary date.

    Commercial rates can be arranged for service after the limit has been reached or for services not covered.



  8. Roadside Assistance is specific to your mobile device number, so service will be provided for any eligible vehicle you're driving or riding in, as long as the enrolled mobile device is present when services are given.

    Note: Roadside Assistance doesn't cover:

    • RVs
    • Boats
    • Trailers
    • Vehicles with more than two axles
    • Vehicles with more than four wheels
    • Vehicles designed or modified for commercial or heavy-duty use (e.g., limousines, emergency vehicles)
    • Vehicles exceeding 10,000 lbs gross vehicle weight


  9. You'll only need the mobile device enrolled in Roadside Assistance with you to receive service.



  10. Call one of the following:

    • #ROAD (#7623) from your enrolled phone airtime free
    • 1-87-ROADSIDE from any phone

    Roadside Assistance will prepare a request for service dispatch. You'll need to provide the following information:

    • Vehicle type (i.e., make, model and color)
    • Your location: the nearest major street / crossroad, if known

    Note: If the cost of the service exceeds the amount covered by Roadside Assistance, you're responsible for any additional charges. Any additional cost is collected during the initial call to Verizon Roadside Customer Service (e.g., a tow claim that exceeds 10 miles will result in an additional fee to the customer).



  11. This is an enhancement to our Roadside Assistance program that provides you with the option to receive a text message with pertinent information regarding your service dispatch. You can opt-in or out at anytime.* Text confirmation alerts are sent to your Verizon Wireless mobile device, unless you provide an alternate mobile number when you contact Roadside Assistance.

    Note: You will receive one text message per dispatch.

    *Message and data rates may apply.



  12. A Roadside Assistance text message alert includes:

    • The name of the company providing service to you
    • The providing company's phone number
    • Estimated time of arrival

    Here's an example alert:

    Verizon Roadside Assistance
    ABC Towing
    555-555-5155
    5:30 PM
    1 msg/query. Reply HELP for help. STOP to cancel. Msg&Data Rates May Apply.



  13. No. You'll need to verbally agree (opt-in) to receive a text message alert.



  14. If you no longer want to receive text message alerts, you can respond STOP to the original text message or contact Verizon Roadside Assistance Customer Service.



  15. Service may be limited by local traffic rules and regulations, such as restricted roadways and toll roads. Roadside Assistance from Verizon may not be available in all areas due to such regulations and rules.

    In such areas, only certain service vehicles that have been designated by local authorities are authorized to perform service. If you happen to require service in one of these areas, the Verizon Roadside Assistance Customer Service Representative will assist you with your options.

    The Roadside Assistance program can’t ensure safety. If there are safety concerns, you should call 911 first.



  16. Yes, prior to securing your own roadside services, contact Verizon Roadside Assistance for pre-approval. You may be reimbursed up to $80.



  17. To receive reimbursement, simply submit the original receipt from the service provider, along with your name, address, authorization number and mobile number to the address below. Claims must be postmarked within 60 days of the date of service.
