How We Help Moms be Moms
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we at Apparent wanted to talk about some of the ways we celebrate moms every day. We know motherhood is not for the faint of heart, which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to support moms in all the hard work they do. To make the mom gig just a little bit easier, Apparent offers several policy features that are family-friendly, and designed especially with moms in mind!
Teen Driver App
Having a teen on the road is one of the more stressful parenting milestones. To give some peace of mind, we’ve partnered with Bouncie – an app that connects data from your car to your smart phone. Simply plug Bouncie’s device into your car’s OTB port, and it’s ready to use.
With the Teen Driver App, you can track your vehicle’s location, get alerts for speed, get trip history and driving statistics, and access information about when vehicle maintenance is needed. Bouncie can even provide insights on driving habits to promote safe driving.
Smart Roadside Assistance
There’s no good time for car troubles. If ever you’ve been stranded roadside by a car that isn’t working, you know that helpless feeling. If you’ve ever popped a tire with your kids in the backseat, or gotten a call from your teenager that they’re locked out of their car late at night, you know a whole other level of that feeling.
Apparent’s Smart Roadside Assistance feature aims to take some of the stress out of these stressful situations. We’ve partnered with urgent.ly to give our customers access to a nationwide network of over 55,000 qualified roadside assistance professionals. Whether you need a tow, a tire change, a winch, a locksmith, or just a little fuel, Smart Roadside Assistance offers fast and reliable service that’s available 24/7, 365 days per year, anywhere in the United States.
Simply request assistance, and you’ll be able to track your service provider’s location as they drive to you. You can even share your service provider’s location with others in real time. With Smart Roadside Assistance, you can rest assured that you and your loved ones are never more than a few clicks away from help.
At-Home Mechanic Services
Sitting idly in an auto shop with bored toddlers is what parents’ nightmares are made of. With our At-Home Mechanic Services, you can avoid the auto shop altogether! Yes, this means never, ever having to sit in an auto shop with kids again.
With this feature, you have the ability to schedule a mechanic to come to your home or office at a time that works for you. You can get a quote and schedule a repair online anytime, all with the security of a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty.
Upgraded Accident Forgiveness
More drivers on your policy means more chances of an accident on your policy, and statistically speaking, new drivers are most accident-prone. Having a teen driver in the house is already stressful enough without having to worry about your rates going up after an accident. With Upgraded Accident Forgiveness, the first chargeable accident on your policy is completely forgiven with no increase to your rates.
Car Seat + Stroller Replacement
Proper car seat usage is one of the most important ways that moms keep their kids safe. Rest easy knowing that in the event your car seat or stroller is damaged in an accident, Apparent guarantees reimbursement for replacements. A phone call is all it takes to get the reimbursement process started.
Rental Car Match
If an accident has left you in need of a rental, we’ll reimburse you for the rental of a similarly-sized vehicle while yours undergoes repairs or until you find a replacement, because nobody wants their minivan replaced with a sedan.
Knowing you have access to legal counsel is a comforting feeling, which is why we offer Legal Assistance – a benefit that can be added to your policy starting at $6 a month. With this benefit, the attorney fee for a minor traffic violation is completely covered once-per-year, and you’ll also get a 25% discount for any other legal needs such as estate planning, real estate transactions, family law, and more!
