Some comments from the customers who have used the Call Assist car breakdown service

" The arrival time by the garage from the initial call was 13 minutes and when the problem was insurmountable the car was promptly loaded on the recovery vehicle and delivered to my home address.  This could have been a disastrous end to my holidays but your service sorted the problem wonderfully... my compliments to your call staff and garage that responded."     Mr P - Hull  
  " I would like to congratulate your call centre staff who were exceptionally helpful and efficient in dealing with the repair.  It is refreshing in an age when many call centres of banking and insurance groups favour automated systems and volume over quality. Well done Call Assist."     Mr S G - Herts
" I am amazed at your service and cannot praise it enough."     Mrs H - Gloucestershire
