Washington (PRWEB) January 23, 2015
Urgent.ly, a national on-demand roadside assistance app, headquartered at AOL’s Fishbowl Labs in Dulles, Va., and the only company seamlessly connecting motorists to roadside assistance through a smartphone app, today announced that it will offer discounts and free roadside assistance during the Washington Auto Show.
● New users who download the Urgent.ly app and register using the promo code “DCAutoShow” will receive 15% off roadside service for life.
● If an Urgent.ly user unfortunately breaks down on their way to or from the Washington Auto Show, they will receive free roadside assistance courtesy of Urgent.ly (no more than 15 miles for towing). Stranded motorists need only to download the app, register with the promo code and provide their Auto Show ticket to receive this benefit that is only available to the first 20 users.
Once Urgent.ly is downloaded, assistance is just a few taps away. Users simply open the app, select their vehicle and pick the service they need. Urgent.ly then locks in on the stranded motorist’s location and dispatches a nearby service provider – similar to Uber. Users can track the service provider’s progress in real time on their phone’s map, along with constantly updating estimated time of arrival. Customers are charged via credit card only after the service is completed to their satisfaction
Urgent.ly is the smart alternative to roadside assistance clubs, as no annual membership fees and dues are ever required. In fact, traditional auto club members will save, on average, $163 per roadside incident by switching to Urgent.ly’s flat-rate, pay-per-incident model.
Urgent.ly is also the only on-demand roadside assistance service in America that offers FamilyView– a unique feature that allows account holders to receive instant alerts when family members are in need of assistance. FamilyView also allows a loved one’s rescue to be viewed from afar, on the account holder’s phone, where tow truck operator contact information and confirmation alerts when service is complete are also provided. Best of all, the card on file is charged, making the entire transaction cashless for the stranded family member or caregiver.
Urgent.ly is the new, trusted source for roadside assistance in America. A unique part of the growing on-demand mobile economy and the leader in driving transformation in the roadside assistance industry, Urgent.ly provides a timely, safe and cost-effective roadside assistance experience without a subscription or membership. It offers two-tap, transparent service; clear, flat-rate pricing; and cashless, reliable help for motorists in need of a tow, tire change, fuel delivery, jump start or lock-out service.
