Breakdown Cover, like the AA or R.A.C (or AAA if you live in the US?) and others similar organisations is essential if you are disabled.

Trouble is they all react differently in the event of a breakdown that they can't fix at the roadside.

 

For example  the "AA" that I personally now use, tell me that they will take my van home on a low loader safely as needed and that because I am unable to leave my wheelchair they will also take me home in a suitable vehicle be it a wheelchair accessible taxi or a hired van!  But that one way or another they will transport me home safely.

Some of the others just told me that they could only take the vehicle, that I couldn't stay in it and they could only take me home if I could access their crew cab...

You wouldn't want to find THAT out at 3am on a wet night in the middle of nowhere!

So be careful who you choose they are not all the same.

Obviously being disabled its even more important that you and your vehicle can be recued and taken home than a normal able bodied person.

Things like an ileostomy, medication, pressure ulcers and 101 other things will not wait!

It is best to get confirmation in writing of their promises and verbal replies, as well as getting them to make a note of your disabled status for their own records as they will respond directly with the correct vehicles rather than being "surprised" after they turn up.

So have a read of:  Tools!  Spare Key  Fuses  Understanding
Grabbers!  Puncture proof tyres  Run Flat tyres  Tyre Weld Aerosol

Some also cover breakdown to your powerchair or scooter in the deal as well.

Visit as many different providers as possible and ask them all the difficult questions before you actually purchase cover and break down!

And don't forget to keep all the documents, membership number, phone numbers with you whenever you leave the house or you wasted your money! 

Program the emergency number into your mobile phone now before you forget. File it under your membership number! Since they will want that first.

If you find any exceptional deals and or service let me know so I can add them here!

In many ways being well prepared is half the answer as most things that cause the problems are either avoidable or easily fixed.
