Roadside assistance is important to have and I’m happy to be talking about it today via this sponsored post.

This past week my daughter and I set off to spend some time together.

I feel like it’s so important to get some one-on-one time with each of the girls. We run some errands, get something to eat and just talk. It’s amazing how everyday life can be special when you have someone special to spend time with. Even though we were taking care of things that we normally do each week it was really fun! We talked and laughed and made some big life goals. After we finished almost everything on our to do list we decided to buy some groceries last.

That’s when the trouble started.

We loaded all of the bags into the car and when I went to start the car I heard a click, click, click instead of the normal roar of my engine starting. I was totally confused. I checked to make sure that all the doors were closed and that nothing was on and I tried it again. Same clicking sound. I was so upset. I tried calling my husband but he was in a meeting with his phone on silent.

I was totally unprepared for this to happen.

I bought my car new in 2012 and I’ve had no problems with it at all so this was not something that I ever thought I’d have to deal with. I was wishing that I had roadside assistance, but I didn’t. After waiting 2 hours and paying $69 we were finally back on our way home and I had a goal to sign up for roadside assistance the next day. I wasn’t going to let that happen ever again.

Last time I had my oil changed at Walmart I remember seeing AutoVantage Roadside Assistance on the counter.

The next day I went to Walmart and found it in the same place. It was by the automotive area cashier.
