Whatever happens, RAC have what your business needs to keep moving
Breakdown, Tyre and Fuel Patrols where you need us
RAC breakdown patrols fix four out of five vehicles at the roadside, within an average of 30 minutes - you can count on us for recovery or roadside assistance. Our patrols carry over 500 parts and tools, including a universal spare wheel, to get you moving again.
We have dedicated Tyre Patrols strategically placed in high density breakdown volume areas. They support drivers at the roadside when a spare wheel is not available, and can provide a mobile tyre fitting service. This has proven very successful in keeping businesses on the move and avoiding further vehicle downtime.
We operate 29 branded, fully qualified mobile Fuel Patrols across the UK, which follow manufacturers’ guidelines and technical specifications to provide a fast and efficient service. This helps to ensure that vehicles are back on the road within the same day, avoiding wait times at the garage and what can often be high costs.
Universal Spare Wheel
Increasingly, cars are being sold without a spare wheel included as standard. This is often a big surprise to motorists who look for it when their vehicle gets a puncture or flat tyre. The RAC Universal Spare Wheel was designed to tackle this problem and help prevent our members from being caught out.
The rise of breakdowns featuring a puncture and no spare led our technical team to develop an innovative solution. The Universal Spare Wheel helps speed up fix time and minimise inconvenience for members.
Developed with a specialist manufacturer partner, the five-stud, 17-inch, lightweight alloy, multi-fit wheel works with a high proportion of vehicles.
When a Universal Spare Wheel is needed, our Patrol will fit it swiftly and then get in touch with the nearest local approved tyre specialist on your behalf.
