I broke down at Stansted airport, so I rang 88 to get me picked up. They were there in just over an hour and took me all the way back to Colchester. I don't know what I would've done without them.

I never thought I'd break down in a car that was only three years old, but it's always good to have peace of mind, so that's why I paid for 88 recovery and I'm glad I did! Getting stuck in Norwich was not my idea of fun, but 88 recovery got me home again.

I broke down on my way to Ipswich from Chelmsford. I was picked up in just under 30 minutes and taken to a garage in Colchester where they replaced the fuel filter which fixed the problem. Can't fault them.

Had my old car taken to a scrapyard. Saved me a lot of bother.

Only other people break down right? Nope. I broke down but I never thought I would. Found these guys in a Google search and glad I did. Got home no problem
