If you’ve been a driver in the Chicago area for long, there’s a decent chance you’ve had a ton to need roadside assistance. From engine trouble in the extreme cold of winter to encounters with some of our city’s crater-sized potholes, there’s more than a few reasons for getting stranded. And if it happened to you while you lacked a roadside assistance contract from an automobile club or your insurer – the experience may have been unpleasant.
But now, you don’t have to worry about that ever again. And it’s all because there’s a new roadside assistance app that finally offers its services in our area. It’s called Jrop, and it’s one of the largest roadside assistance providers in the US. And unlike other roadside assistance providers, you don’t need a membership to use it. All you need is your smartphone.
The company recently announced a significant expansion that brings them into several major cities in the Midwest, including Chicago, Columbus, Cleveland, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. That milestone makes them the only roadside assistance provider that has a presence from coast to coast in the US. That’s pretty comforting if you’re a frequent long-distance traveler, but it’s not the only reason that Chicago’s drivers should sit up and take note.
The biggest reason that Jrop is a game-changer in the roadside assistance industry is that they’re leveraging the latest in mobile app technology to make the process of getting help for your stranded vehicle as simple as possible.
If you’ve ever had to call for help in the dark in an unfamiliar neighborhood, you’re sure to appreciate Jrop. Their app uses your smartphone’s built-in location services to send the service provider dispatched to help you to your precise location. You are no more struggling to find hard-to-read road signs in the dark and no more trying to describe your surroundings for some visual references. They’ll encounter you with no trouble, every time.
Then there’s also the fact that all of Jrop’s services come with a low flat-rate fee structure, so you won’t have to deal with hidden charges and deceptive bait-and-switch tactics when you need help. They’ve pre-arranged the fee for each service with all of their local providers so you don’t have to. And because you’ll be paying for your services via Jrop’s app, you don’t have to worry about having cash on hand when help arrives. You can pay with any major credit card, debit card, or even PayPal if you’d prefer it.
And their app is relatively easy to use, with Jrop’s most common services listed in an easy-to-select menu structure. After picking what you need from the list, you’ll see the exact that you’re going to pay. Then, you’ll have to provide the make and model of your vehicle and pay the fee. In most cases, the help you need will arrive in under 30 minutes. And because you’ve told them what kind of vehicle you’re driving, the service provider will come with the right tools to do the job, right on site.
On top of all that, you’ll also gain the benefit of knowing you’ll be dealing with nothing but top-notch tow truck drivers and automotive repair technicians every time you call for help. Jrop to that by conducting thorough background checks on all of its partner providers and maintaining high standards for professional competence and ethics. And they also only work with licensed and bonded local service providers, so you’ll never have to worry about who will cover the bill in the unlikely event of an accident or other problem.
And Jrop’s CEO Carl Redding insists that the company looks forward to having the opportunity to prove itself to Chicago drivers. He says, “We’ve always prided ourselves on providing excellent customer service in every market we expand into. In Chicago’s case, we know how challenging the local climate can be during parts of the year, and we’re committed to being there for stranded motorists whenever they need us.”
And so far, there’s every reason to believe that Jrop’s going to make good on that commitment. The feedback from drivers in areas that have had Jrop operating for a while has been overwhelmingly positive. And when drivers report an issue, Jrop takes their concerns seriously. They make it a point to follow up with users about how their service calls went and look for ways to improve with each new interaction.
It’s also worth pointing out that Jrop can take care of more than just stranded motorists. They also are a leading provider of junk car removal services too. And setting up a vehicle pickup is just as easy as calling for help. You just tell them where your vehicle is and where it has to go, and they’ll take care of the rest. It couldn’t be easier.
So, as winter sets in, and the odds of getting stranded in your vehicle go up, take some comfort in knowing you’ve got a brand-new option to call upon for help. Whether you’ve locked yourself out by accident, had your battery go dead while out shopping, or suffered any of the other automotive mishaps that can make your pleasant day’s drive into a stressful nightmare, Jrop can help.
