What factors affect the pricing of a vehicle recovery service?

Whilst it’s impossible to predict when and where you will ever require the help of a breakdown and recovery service, you should always keep one in mind just in case. Breakdowns or accidents can happen to anyone, anytime and anywhere, so there will be a need to call your local breakdown recovery service.

We at Fastlink Recovery, always work extremely hard to ensure that we offer the most comprehensive services and a fair and cost effective rate to our clients.

Usually with breakdown recovery services, prices vary and depend on several factors. You will find that the oldest companies tend to place their pricing in the higher brackets due to their reputation and brand. Smaller breakdown services that are local and family-run, may place their pricing in the lower brackets because often these businesses don’t have numerous employees to pay form therefore their pricing reduces significantly.

Time of the day matters

As you might be aware, time of the day affects most business services. With breakdown and recovery service, it would generally cost more to have a vehicle recovered late at night. This pricing is also affected by public holidays and weekends but we, at Fastlink Recovery, will always take the time to discuss your tailored quote and the prices to ensure it is fair for the service you are receiving.

Distance is key

Another important factor is the distance of which your vehicle needs to be transported to and/or from. Generally, the further away from the base, the more the charges, therefore a shorter journey costs much less than a long haul journey.

Location, location, location

The price of your vehicle breakdown service will also depend on the location that you’re at. If you’re stranded on the side of the motorway, the price will be slightly different to breaking down in a residential area. Generally, this is similar to a risk assessment. The higher the risk of the job, the more the price will be. So because a motorway is a difficult and potentially a dangerous situation, it is associated with higher costs, whereas a residential area would be much cheaper as it is less risky.

Finally, to wrap up, there are are multiple factors that influence the price of your vehicle breakdown and recovery service. When you choose a breakdown service, it is vital that you choose a company that is reliable and has exceptional client reviews, high quality equipment and customer service.
