Progressive Insurance launched a new roadside assistance coverage option for commercial heavy-duty trucks, the auto insurance company announced May 22.

The Heavy Truck Roadside Assistance (HT RSA) helps cover the cost of towing and labor at the site of disablement as well as provide roadside support. It came as a direct response to market research on preferred truck coverage needs. The coverage will be available in most policy states to commercial auto customers including tractor-trailers, dump trucks, straight trucks and more.

“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,” said Peter Niro, truck product development manager at Progressive. “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.”

Progressive noted the coverage came as a collaboration with TTN Fleet Solutions. Covered customers can simply have to call a roadside number to connect with TTN Fleet Solutions, which will dispatch a service provider to the site of disablement. This process is intended to save valuable time in finding a qualified provider and removes the need to file for reimbursement after the fact.
