At Footman James, we appreciate how important classic car and classic motorcycle breakdown cover is for the enthusiast, who actively uses their classic vehicle. Considering this, we are pleased to offer FJ clients the option of purchasing a breakdown service provided by the RAC, as part of our suite of FJ+ add ons.

With over 4,000 committed staff, the RAC is based nationwide and able to deliver exemplary service through their force of branded patrol vehicles which carry over 500 parts and tools at any time.

The RAC principally concentrate on vehicle breakdown, repair and recovery and regularly repair up to 32,000 vehicles a week at the roadside. In fact, RAC attended to 2,400,000 broken down vehicles in 2016 alone!

Every 8 seconds the RAC take a call from a person in need of assistance and every 19 seconds the RAC fix a car - so they are an ideal and experienced partner to provide both a service and a solution to stranded classic vehicle motorists.
