On The Move {$50 Amazon Giveaway!}

For the past week I’ve been in suburbia, living the quiet life without any children or anything to clean. A press trip-turned-hurricane-detour has left me in the lap of luxury: A quiet, cozy space in my mother’s home, with my mom’s cooking, with full use of my mother’s vehicle.

I’ve almost completely forgotten what it is like to walk everywhere, loading and unloading strollers while carrying scooters and groceries to and from our destinations. Living this suburban lifestyle has gotten me very interested in the minivan/SUV market, especially with our third child on the way. I even caught myself briefly fantasizing about our future minivan ownership and all of the travel that we’ll be doing in less than a couple years upon our move back to California.

With the purchase of a new car, we’ll be also in the market for car seats and car insurance. Since we’ve been here, we’ve rented a few cars through various different services, and have borrowed from friends. Insurance hasn’t been a worry, but it’s always been a consideration. We haven’t-fortunately-had any significant issues while traveling on the East Coast with kids, but there have been times when I’ve really worried what would happen if I did get stuck. Who would I call?

It’s nice to know that there is an option out there that doesn’t require a huge commitment, especially for those times that the need is temporary, just like how we need it right now. This type of coverage is perfect for those families and individuals that take frequent road trips, as it’s the perfect roadside assistance for the minor times when you need a little extra help.

I can tell you there have been many, many times in my life that I have been locked out of my car, been stuck on the side of the road without gas and have needed a change of a tire. This program is a simple phone call away-nice especially when you don’t have any friends or family around.

Allstate Good Hands Roadside Assistance is a new Allstate service that gives you free access to Allstate’s 24/7 Roadside Network should your car break down for any reason. They can be reached at any time by calling 1-800-ALLSTATE.

~ No annual fees. Pay only for the service as you need it and when you need it – in most cases just $75 per tow and $50 per other service.
~ Available to everyone in the U.S. – not just Allstate customers.
~ Service covers any driver, any car, any time.
~ Download the Good HandsSM Roadside mobile app to your smartphone for faster, easier service.

I know I’ll be looking forward to utilizing this service more when our third baby comes, as we’ll need more adventures outside of the city requiring a vehicle.

Happy Driving!
