Breakdown Cover

Last night on site some one backed into my car when it was parked next to the van (don't ask) leaving it drive able just but not fit to do the 500 mile journey home.

New Hondas come ith accident assistance so I rang them. All they offered was to recover the vehicle home. (Which seemed an expensive option to say the least.)

They put me through to their recovery section (actually provided by the AA).

Ok so what about recovering the caravan. "I will have to speak to our recovery contractor"

Comes back "yes we can recover the van. Was it being towed at the time"

No it was parked by the side of the van "then we cannot recover the van"

So it seems:

Car needs recovering OK. If towing at the time van will also be recovered.

Otherwise forget it. So if something happens to the car off site forget it.

 

I should add my insurers LV were brilliant. Arranged for local body shop to do a temporary repair which they did while I waited.

 

So check what is covered before it's needed. Me I'm going back to Mayday

Mayday are brilliant! Towed us off a snow covered site 18 months ago, and then offered to take us all the way home! Declined as once we were on a proper road we had no problems! If abroad it is Red Pennant, who give outstanding service! We learnt that this year!

When I was with the AA my torque convertor decided to give up the ghost so there was no way I could tow our van home. Car wasn't attached when it went, but they took the car back on the breakdown truck & towed the van back as well, even dropping it back to our storage yard, waiting while I parked it up on the mover, then dropped me & car home.

Couldn't fault them.
