Yes! We cover motorcycles.

Yes! We have no age restrictions on the vehicles we cover.

Our £30 a year membership covers you if you break down anywhere in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland. If your vehicle can be repaired, up to one hour’s labour is provided. Otherwise, we will tow your vehicle to the nearest repairer.

You also have the additional benefit of cover if travelling in Great Britain. If your vehicle suffers a breakdown incident whilst in Great Britain, we will refund to you any recovery costs that you incur subject to a maximum payment of £350 (incl. VAT).

Yes, it’s all part of our service!

We’ll even change your wheel if you’re carrying a suitable spare.

Our service is sold on a per-vehicle basis and covers anyone driving the specified vehicle.

If your keys are lost, we will send specialist staff from the Granite Breakdown team to assess the vehicle recovery requirements.

And, where specialist equipment is required, take your vehicle to the nearest secure area until a replacement is found.

If your keys are locked in the vehicle, we can help to access it.

We were hoping you’d ask that.

Our annual membership cost is one of the most competitive in the UK and Ireland, priced at just £30 a year.

So, for the price of two cups of coffee, lunch for two and a tray bake each, you’ll have peace of mind for a full year.

Yes, we mean everything.

Our £30 a year annual cover includes call outs for mechanical and electrical faults, lost keys, fuel shortages and flat tyres both at your home or the roadside.

We’ve been helping Northern Ireland motorists for over 12 years and currently have over 20,000 delighted members.

In just 12 years, we’ve been there for thousands of motorists at a time when they needed us most: even tucked in on the hard shoulder on a busy motorway with their hazard lights on, sometimes in freezing conditions.

Ok, well, our cover provides:

✔ Roadside Assistance
✔ Mechanical faults
✔ Electrical faults
✔ Flat tyres
✔ Lost keys
✔ Running out of fuel

The average person spends over £206,000 on cars in their lifetime, so with a lifetime investment of nearly a quarter of a million pounds, it’s always a good idea to protect your investment.

If your vehicle suffers a breakdown incident or if you are involved in a road traffic collision that renders your vehicle immobile whilst travelling in Great Britain, Granite Breakdown will refund to you any recovery costs that you incur subject to a maximum payment of £350 (incl. VAT). We will not recover your vehicle from the scene. This benefit is inoperative if you also have cover from an insurer or another breakdown organisation.

Our service covers up to a maximum of 3 call outs for the 12 months after purchasing the service.

If you run out of fuel, we’ll take you and your vehicle to the nearest petrol station.

Granite Breakdown is one of Northern Ireland’s most trusted breakdown services.

We provide an annual breakdown membership service.

We are also a division of the well-known accident management firm, CRASH Services.

There’s no catch at all.

We work with independent recovery operators across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to ensure we get out to you as quickly as possible.

No, we don’t believe in add-ons and hidden charges.

That’s why we only offer one level of service, and it includes everything you need.
