RAC Warranty

We prepare our vehicles to the highest standards in the business. Our own purpose built, fully equipped workshops are approved by the RAC. All vehicles are extensively road tested, evaluated and appraised during the preparation process. Despite this, occasionally the unforeseen can occur, and so, should anything go wrong, you can be assured of the very best assistance. Supported by our partners at the RAC, help is available 24/7, and if necessary we have a range of courtesy vehicles available to keep you on the road.

We are an RAC Assured Dealer, meaning that you can buy your next vehicle in confidence.

For customers wanting to further insure themselves against mechanical breakdown beyond our standard warranty period, we offer a range of RAC Warranty products as below, which can provide a varying level of cover on mechanical and electrical components, for up to four years'.

Van Broken Down?

Being involved in a vehicle breakdown can be an upsetting experience - especially if you don't have breakdown cover in place. If your van has broken down or your van won't start, but you're not an RAC member, don't worry - we can still help you.

How? This guide will cover exactly what you need to do if your vehicle breaks down and you need instant breakdown cover - including clear, step-by-step instructions to help us get to you as soon as we can.

We'll also detail the benefits of RAC membership, and the level of breakdown cover you can expect from us

Broken Down without any Breakdown Cover?

If you've broken down and need immediate breakdown cover, don't panic. Stay calm and follow these five steps:

  • Call 0333 2000 999
  • Tell us where you are
  • We'll help if you've broken down or your vehicle won't start
  • Join RAC for the year - prices will differ from those online and we'll add an emergency callout charge
  • You can choose your breakdown package but for the first 24 hours you'll be on Roadside assistance only
