International rescue for car and boat trailer

thought this might be of use to all ribnet members towing boats. Having yet
again been unfortunate to have a wheel bearing collase on the motorway,
the problems begin. the call to the rescue services only to be told that the
boat trailer is not included, unless the vehicle has broken down then they
will recover the trailer towed behind the tow truck. or they will arrange
recovery but at your own expence. so be Warned. I have now found a
recovery for both car and boat trailer, so long as it is less than 7m long
3m high and 2.25m wide I think that the width is the more critical measurement. All this from International breakdown with personal cover for
any vehicle you are in at £69.00. They allso do Buissness cover.

Hope this advice helps

I'm with this lot!

They have said that they will recover the car and trailer even if there is nothing wrong with the tow vehicle.
New boat is here, very happy!
