 Protected, Whatever Vehicle You Are In

Roadside assistance is a professional service offered to motorists whose vehicles have had a breakdown or some type mechanical failure on the roads or motorways.

  • Such a reliable service can be easily be found online these days.

More popular than ever these days, company’s such as First 4 Recovery, even offer a “personal cover” which means that any other car you are driving, or even being a passenger in, is covered with their special care policy, thus ensuring full spectrum protection.

Different Situations

Crisis roadside help covers many issues drivers may encounter out there on the road in the UK, Ireland or Europe. This includes the likes of flat tyres, getting locked out, mechanical failures, out of fuel or those dreaded dead batteries.

  • In such situations, service contractors will come out to your vehicle and help to look after the problem. The measures they will have to carry out will all depend upon what the problem happens to be.

Tyres and Key Matters

Drivers with a flat tyre should expect the service personnel to arrive and change the tyre. If no spare tyre is available, the breakdown expert will tow the vehicle to a place where the tyre is repaired. The charge for the repair is paid for by the driver, but the towing service is free.

  • If a key is in a car which has somehow been locked, it can be retrieved by the roadside professional with an approved tool to open up the car to retrieve the keys.

If the keys are lost, a skilled locksmith is then ordered out to re-key the vehicle. The driver is then only held responsible for the charge of the locksmith and brand new keys.

Mechanical Breakdown

If there’s been a mechanical breakdown on the road, a tow truck will be sent out to transport the driver and the vehicle to a repair centre, normally within a predetermined radius. The driver isn’t normally held responsible for the tow fee, but is responsible for any required repairs to the vehicle.

If a vehicle runs out of fuel, the roadside assistance service sends out a small volume of petrol. The amount of fuel, should easily be enough to allow the vehicle owner to drive to a petrol station for a refill.

Battery Help

If there’s a dead battery, somebody is sent out to jump start the vehicle. The battery’s terminals are first cleaned and then the vehicle is jump started via the use jump cables.

Making sure you are covered, gives you great peace of mind wherever you are!
