Traffic is such a conundrum to car drivers who are always on the go like me. Add to it the hassle of encountering / being involved in accidents on the road (Knock on wood) or what if suddenly your engine would not start anymore due to the lack of gas since due to being stuck for almost 4 hours in the hellish traffic my car ran out of gas and it got towed..
This personally happened to me a few months back so I can testify to the great inconvenience it has brought on me and also to the other drivers as well. 🙂 Good thing! I called up P and inquired on the numbers to call so aid was quick to come by.
They towed my vehicle to the nearest gas station and when I refueled they asked for 2,200 from me. I was astounded at how towing can be quite expensive. Being quite frugal in my expenses I don’t really spend on things unless I really need them so a thousand bucks or more can make such a dent in my weekly budgetary allowance that I set for myself.
From that day forward, my lesson was learned and whenever my fuel tank reflects 3 bars, I immediately swerve my way to the nearest gas station and refuel.
It’s such a relief to know that car insurance companies like MAPFRE comes up with such innovations which will make roadside assistance convenient for us without all that hassle and inconvenience as it can already be available at the tips of your fingers in your Ios or Andriod Smartphone.
This innovation, dubbed as the MAiassist mobile application, aims to provide fully automated roadside assistance initially, through SMS update facility and eventually via GPS.
So how does it come to our rescue you may ask?
MAiassist responds to three possible incidents: breakdown, theft, and accident. After selecting the assistance you need, the mobile app will automatically report the time and location of the vehicular concern. Then, your details are sent to MAPFRE’s assistance systems, which will send you a confirmation of your request. MAiassist also has a unique feature that allows the app users to receive real-time updates on the arrival of an assistance unit via SMS every 15 minutes of the tow truck’s location. In cases of extreme emergencies, you can directly contact assistance services by an automated telephone call.
Easy as 1,2,3 right? 🙂 Just download the App and VOILA! 🙂 Help is on it’s way! 🙂
