6 Reasons to Pick Better World Auto Club Over AAA

by | Aug 19, 2013 | Industry-Wide Topics

When it comes to choosing an auto club, not all clubs are created equal.  If your auto club membership has come up for renewal, and you are wondering if you should just renew with AAA, we have a better option for you, Better World Auto Club (BWC).  Here’s some background…

British American Auto Care was a AAA certified repair facility for over 20 years. We had one of the highest ratings for automotive repairs and services. Then, a few years ago, things started to change. AAA wanted more control. For example, they wanted us to be responsible for the towing companies that towed cars to our property.  Then, to add insult to injury, they started to open their own AAA Car Care Centers in direct competition with the AAA certified repair facilities.

Our customers who had AAA were also starting to be unhappy with their service.  When a customer called for a jump start, many were sold a battery, whether they needed one or not. AAA also tried to have their cars towed to specific facilities.

Things got so bad that it began to be reflected in their online ratings.  This company, often quoted in the news media as an independent voice for the consumer, was really acting badly. On the Consumer Affairs website, with over 300 complaints & reviews, AAA has a one star rating! 

So we started to look at other auto clubs to recommend to our customers and we found Better World Auto Club.

Here are six great reasons to join Better World Auto Club

  1. BWC provides nationwide 24-hour emergency roadside assistance including towing, lockout and flat tire assistance, jumpstarts, fluid delivery, and winching.
