“Having had to use our car breakdown policy for the first time, I can only say how delighted and relieved we are.
Not knowing what to expect, I can only say how excellent the service was that we were given. Within 15 minutes of our first phone call a mechanic arrived who advised us of the fault and that a breakdown truck was necessary. He arranged this and within a further 20 minutes this arrived which then took us to a garage of our choice who fixed the major repair required.
An excellent breakdown cover that I would recommend to anyone.”
Mr T Davies
“I would just like to express our appreciation as to the excellent service we received on Thursday August 25th. on the M6 when we had a front tyre blow out on our horse box. The tow truck & tyre service folk were first class & as we had a horse on board & the traffic was horrendous, it was quite scary. We were on the way to a competition near Boston & the entire trip eventually took around 9 hours because of the 3 hour delay due to the tyre. We stood on the bank of the M6 away from the box-for safety reasons-partially in the rain. The service was excellent so again many thanks.”
