Emergency road service coverage

Vehicles break down sometimes. And when they do, it's a major hassle.

To help lessen that hassle, State Farm® offers Emergency Road Service coverage. With emergency road service, we'll pay for the common, reasonable expenses you need to get your covered vehicle back in service.

When you’ve got emergency roadside coverage from State Farm, minor car problems can be less of a big deal. Just request assistance online from your computer or mobile device. Or call us at 877-627-5757877-627-5757 if that’s easier. Either way, we’ll send someone who’ll help you get back on the road for a price that’s usually lower than you’ll find on your own.

What does roadside assistance cover?

If you have emergency road service coverage, and your vehicle breaks down or becomes disabled, we'll pay for reasonable, emergency services.

  • Mechanical labor at the breakdown site (up to one hour).
  • Towing to the nearest repair location if the covered vehicle is not drivable.
  • Towing if the covered car is stuck on or immediately next to a public road.
  • Delivery of gas, oil, battery, or change of tire (but not the cost of these or similar items) necessary to return a covered vehicle back to driving condition.
  • Locksmith labor to unlock a covered car if its key is lost, stolen, or locked inside the car (up to one hour).

What isn’t covered by emergency road service coverage

  • Towing costs beyond what it would cost to tow your vehicle to the nearest repair facility
  • Labor costs beyond the first hour

Please speak with an agent or check your policy for additional coverage limitations.
