RAC Warranty

RAC Warranty

We prepare our vehicles to the highest standards in the business. 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.

All our vehicles come with a minimum of Three months RAC warranty with complimentary RAC Rescue, Recovery and Breakdown assistance. Over 80% of all RAC patrol man attended breakdowns are repaired at the roadside without the need for a garage visit.

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 two years'. Call today for a quote on your extended warranty requirements.
