Rental Reimbursement and Roadside Assistance Keep Your Business on the Move

As a small business owner, you depend on all the vehicles in your fleet, whether it’s one or half a dozen. When one is down temporarily, you’re probably losing money. Two new commercial auto insurance coverages from Progressive will help to keep your business on the road and on the job.

Roadside Assistance: Provides 24/7 towing, battery jump-starts, tire changes, emergency fuel delivery, locksmith service and on-scene labor.

Rental Reimbursement: Pays for a replacement vehicle following a covered claim.

“Small business owners can’t afford to be without one of their vehicles, even for a day,” said Cory Fischer of Progressive’s Commercial Auto Group. “Our new coverages will help keep our customers on the road and in the black.”

The new coverages apply to passenger cars, pick-up trucks, vans and SUVs used by small businesses. Available in 19 states now, the Rental Reimbursement and Roadside Assistance coverages are expected to be available countrywide by the end of the year.
