Access Roadside Assistance has been in the Emergency Roadside Services (ERS) business since 1997. We provide 24-hour ERS for Insurance Companies, National Car Rental Companies, Large Corporate fleets, and individuals with our Roadside Assistance Memberships. Our history is straightforward, the owners of Access were talked into providing 24-hour ERS support for an insurance company in 1997. Access quickly developed a strong Canada & US towing network through active recruitment of towing vendors. Over 24 years later, we have provided more than 250,000 assistance requests Coast-to-Coast throughout Canada and the US… we know what we’re doing.

This can never be guaranteed. However, Access has no alliances with particular tow companies. Our call center staff will ask the provider their response time, if the staff member feels the time is too long, they will contact another assistance provider to try to locate one with a quicker response time. Some of our competitors only use one service provider, and in larger cities, this can cause longer wait times if that one provider is busy.
Yes. In rural areas, our network will work with many of the same assistance providers as our competitors. Our ability to service remote areas will be limited to the same degree as the other major roadside assistance providers.
