Like landlord they said it was a priority job and they'd be there within an hour. I made numerous calls and got a bit shitty, but still took them forever. No follow up call or apology. I keep meaning to follow it up but haven't had the time. Have since joined the RAC!

You can't beat good mates for recovery, costs you a few bears but you're still in good company

Don't expect much from the RAC either.

Last year I had an issue with trailer brakes binding, and pulled up NEXT to a parked RAC van. He refused to look at it. 'Not my area mate, you'll have to wait for the local guy'. I pay for the full trailer recovery package, via the c*r*v*n club.

3 hours later I was mobile again. The repair took 10 minutes.
