I have called out Green Flag a couple of times, and they've been prompt and helpful.
Once was for a flat tyre. We had tried to change it ourselves, and then some passers by had tried (even ringing a friend to bring another spanner), but the flat was fixed too tightly. Green Flag turned up and did the job in 5 minutes - I apologised for being a wuss, but the guy's response was "Don't worry about it, in fact, call me first - it keeps me in a job!", which I thought was kind of friendly.
I would recommend home call, because if you don't have it, they charge you £72 to come out to within a mile of your home. Ouch.
do you bother with personal cover. that means you are covered in any car you are driving or are a passenger in. Or do you just cover yourself in your own car.
Have always had personal cover but never had the need to use it. Am wondering if i'm just wasting my money.
I've used them and found them excellent..i think they use a network of call out garages rather than Green men ...they even fetched a 4x4 out of our garage when the key dechipped and it was immobilised and needed specialist equipment and a team to move as you couldn't push it without damage...
Actually not that great. It took 1.75 hours for their bloke to come out when I'd broken down with just me and 3mo ds in the car on a quiet country lane. Fortunately a lovely policeman had offered to wait with me as it was getting dark and unsavoury blokes had been approaching me to offer "help".
And then they were going to take us back to our old address even though I'd told the woman on the phone that we'd moved.
They all have their occasional problems. Took the AA 4 hours to get out to the MD of a client I worked with which was a bit of a balls up as they were going through contract re-tendering exercise to keep the client's business at the time! (They still kept it though even after their apalling service.).
