About National Breakdown

National Breakdown provides 24 hour assistance and breakdown recovery services throughout the United Kingdom and Europe for all classes of vehicles, providing efficient and cost effective solutions via a long standing network of specialist agents on an insured and pay as you go basis.

Innovation in a competitive industry

In 1999, National Breakdown was the first to provide domestic and light commercial breakdown insurance via the internet.  This innovative approach to insurance captured an emerging audience and launched the Company onto the Breakdown Insurance market.

In response to the changing expectations of the domestic consumer and a rationalisation of the route-to-market by larger providers, in 2006, we went back to our roots in commercial recovery and once again delivered an innovative HGV product to the insurance sector and a specialist service to the haulage industry.

Striving to find the best solution for all concerned

Training for claims staff, network coverage and customer service are paramount in our desire to move forward.  Sadly the insurance industry has seen a rise in fraudulent claims, however, our specialist incident coordinators take pride in finding the most efficient solutions for our underwriters and clients whilst maintaining a high level of service for the end user.
