Breakdown and Recovery Agents Insurance

Breakdown and recovery agents are the 4th emergency service in many peoples eyes. If you’re a breakdown or recovery agent you most likely spend most of your time as a hero! Lay by’s, Service Stations and the Hard Shoulder are where you spend most of your time – so insurance is often the last thing on your mind. Here at Bollington, we aim to take the sting out of searching for the best breakdown and recovery agent policies by being experts within the field and understanding your business.

If you’re just starting out as a recovery or breakdown operator – you’ll need a full operators license if the vehicle and trailer is over 1525kg (unladen) and if the vehicle and trailer weigh more than 3500kg plated. You should also consider your hours of working and the exact level of assistance you’ll be offering your customers. Will you fix their car by the road? Transportation to premises or garage?

If you’ve been operating for years, you’ll know that word of mouth is the biggest generator of business. Insurance companies, Police/Local authorities and Garages supply a large chunk of your business – so making sure you have the right level of insurance will better your chances of being selected from their preferred suppliers list.

At Bollington we understand that you may provide breakdown assistance by the road as part of your service, so you may need your tools covered too or you could have other business uses for the vehicle such as scrap vehicle transportation.

Whatever your requirements, we’re sure we can help.
