Choosing a Car Recovery Service
When choosing a car breakdown recovery service it is important not to assume that the cheapest is best!
There are two main pitfalls that could end up leaving you out of pocket or worse still, without a car.
Firstly you need to be aware of the weight of your vehicle. Many smaller car transporters and recovery trucks are limited to a Gross weight of 3.5 tonnes. If the recovery truck weights 2 tonnes and your car weights 1.6 tonnes that means that the gross weight will be 3.6 tonnes. If the truck is stopped and weighed and found to be overweight your car may be impounded. You may then find yourself with impound charges and the cost of having your car recovered from the impound yard!
Secondly, there are a number of operators offering car recovery and transportation services who do not have all the necessary insurance to fully cover their liabilities in the event of an accident. This does not mean that they are operating illegally but it does mean that in the event of an accident repairs to your car may not be covered.
