Yes! We cover motorcycles.

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

Our yearly 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 change your wheel if you’re carrying a suitable spare and it is safe to do so. If you haven’t got a suitable spare wheel, the recovery agent will lift your vehicle and take it to an agreed location.

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

If your keys are lost, we will send a recovery agent to assess the vehicle requirements and, where specialist equipment is required, take your vehicle to an agreed location. If your keys are locked in the vehicle, we can help to assess the vehicle.

We were hoping you’d ask that.

Our annual membership cost is one of the most competitive in the UK and Ireland.

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 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 not recover your vehicle from the scene, we will refund to you any recovery costs that you incur, subject to a maximum payment of £350 (incl. VAT). This benefit is inoperative if you have also had cover from an insurer or another breakdown organisation. 

Our service covers up to a maximum of three call-outs during the 12 months after purchasing the membership.

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.
