Halfords has announced the launch of a new breakdown recovery service for cars, vans, motorbikes and push bikes.

The company is to use a nationwide network of over 400 independent recovery operators to run the breakdown cover service and aims to reach customers within 40 minutes and, where possible, to repair the vehicle at the roadside within 60 minutes.

Where repairs are not possible, policyholders will be offered discounts on repairs carried out at a Halfords Autocentre – although Halfords has said customers may choose a garage of their choice.

Other incentives for policyholders include half price MOTs, ten per cent off servicing and a ten pound gift voucher.

A Halfords spokesperson has said: “We service and repair thousands of cars and bikes every week.

“Now, our customers will be able to access our range of services while out on their journeys.

“With the launch of our new breakdown cover, our policy holders will benefit from the expertise of over 700 Halfords shops and Autocentres.”

    All this discounting can only result in one thing, overcharging customers once they are inside the door! its the 10p loaf of bread syndrome, they need to make the costs up in other areas. Unfortunately the public are gullable enough to fall for such scams

    I have to agree with Nigel. If they can provide a good quality service at this discounted price then why isn’t that their price in the first place?
    Sadly in my local experience all the fast fits offer is poor workmanship at high prices, despite their claims of being cheap.

    Lots of headlamp bulbs fitted by Halfords are in upside down, how could you trust them to repair your vehicle or even recover it.

    As a recovery company, we would be interested to know who the service provider is for the recovery operation?

    Hope this doesnt hurt too much but think hard here ,and take note.
    The DVSA wanted to make the mot every 4 years and then 2 years,and the goverment also consulted on this,then they even thought about doing away with the mot test as cars are more reliable.
    Now we cant even get a price increase as they say too many are cut pricing mots as it is.So the next time all that hack the mot price down,dont moan your pants off if it all goes wrong as you helped f— the system,its a safety related check and should be worth its value. not undermined,then the motorist thinks its a rip off, he does it for 29.99 or worse its free.
    Its a industry that needs to get a grip,and be regulated with licenced tecks,not joe bloggs i sort cars at my wee shed,and its cash in the pocket. if you think your ace then get a grip,no one is that cleaver or good and we are learning all the time,and it costs money for training and equipment,and should reflect on the price,electricians,gas eng etc are all licenced,we should be too.
    Thats how i feel and dont hide it,i been on courses and seen some right neeps at them and wouldnt let them tune a wheel barrow, never mind a good car.
