History Of MCA
The history of MCA dates back to 1926 when Motor Club of American Enterprises, Inc.’s was created. Three brothers had an idea and came together to developed a motor club. The three brothers were children of Russian immigrants. In the 1920’s, cars become a very important and resourceful tool for the country and drivers as a need in motor clubs to provide assistance in towing, maps and emergency service and repairs for these drivers. MCA offers 24/7 emergency roadside assistance plans, membership discounts, and the most reliable service in the auto club industry. With over 86 years of experience, we know how to provide the best in customer care while offering a variety of options that best suit your individual needs. Our vision is to continue providing the best services at affordable rates to our members. We will continue to set the standard for quality in the motor club industry. Our winning culture defines the attitudes and behaviors that will be required of us to make our 2020 vision a reality. By constantly listening to our members, we will learn and quickly adapt to changes in the market in order to constantly improve our portfolio of useful services.
