Driving for Uber, Lyft, Instacart is a great way to make money on the side. But, the high miles, constant stop-and-go… is a nightmare of your car.

If (more like when) you need any kind of serious service, they will look for and they will find the tell tale signs, and deny your claims.
But, there are ways to help your car better survive high-milage driving as well as ways to make sure your claims aren’t denied. Find out how – join us!
