HI John,

Which breakdown organisations have you tried so far?

I am with GREEN FLAG at the moment but i did't tell them i am doing courier work, i had one breakdown last year with no problems, my cover expires soon and i need cover for courier work,i phoned green flag but they don't cover for courier work , i thought i ask here first before i phone AA ,RAC, NATIONAL BREAKDOWN etc. As my work has increased my mileage has gone from 1,000 to 2,500 a week so my chances of breakdowns have increased

I have cover with IC. cheaper than AA/RAC Courier cover but better cover. Google "courier breakdown insurance". and find a large range of products.

Does that cover the courier having some sort of breakdown or is it just the vehicle? :-D

I have a policy with National Breakdown. Not had to use it but covers me for what I need.

Some will cover driver breakdowns as well.
Usually the company will supply a driver or recover the vehicle

Yes, honestly

I'd be careful relying on the cover provided with your insurance, as someone said 20 miles maximum £3.40 a mile there after, wouldn't surprise me if they gave this cover free, they'd make money on it!
