    I was just wondering if there's a paid service any of you know about that is equivalent to AAA but for owner operators. Now that I've paid for my truck, Schneider doesn't hook you up with roadside assistance anymore unless it involves their equipment. Under Schneider finance I could just call and they would hook you up. There's nothing more annoying than trying to find a tire shop at 3 in the morning with a random google search. I'd love to have a single phone number to call to have these things arranged.

    And from a wrecker man ...... do you really want to sit on the side of the road for 3-6 hours waiting for someone in Pakistan to find you a service/tow company, and that's just the locating one, it still has to get to you.

    Breakdown, hit the cell search for local service, pay out, get back to makin' miles.

    $100 a call; you can call me every time. I’ll spend the minute on google and find you somebody. The bill goes to you when it comes from them/

    I had it through OOIDA insurance years ago. Wasn’t much, added as a Ryder to their expensive policy. $500 deductible. Call around starting with current insurance company. It’s available.
