    Default Breakdown Recovery Companies

    Can anyone suggest any breakdown recovery firms? Other than the 2 main ones RAC and AA that seem to want an arm and a leg!!!

    Thanks

    Used to use Britannia in my old vec B. Used them once, they sent a local recovery firm out who arrived pretty quick and got me going with no hassle

    There is also Green Flag

    and have a look at MoneySavingExpert for advice on choosing...

    Greenflag came sprinting when Sharon broke down in her Rover a few years ago and they found out she was on her own.

    The recovery truck got there just before I did, which was no mean feat. Since then, I don't have any problem recommending them.

    Green Flag all the way. Just re-joined. Paid £66.80 for Recovery +. The AA wanted £108.00 for the same thing Relay +. No brainer really.

    Hope this helps?
