    UN FOOKIN BELIEVABLE. Had a call from my insurance company. C&S are claiming off our insurance for damage to their truck. Off to court soon I think, via the papers.

    Because I called the RAC, not C&S. C&S represent the RAC, and are thier agents. I pay the RAC membership, and pay C&S nothing. If the RAC want to sue C&S to recover any compensation paid its up to them. My contract is with the RAC. And it was me that dialled 999, C&S were going to faff about with a lifter.

    TBH Craig I never looked at it like that. A LWB Luton could now gross 4.1 ton legally. All the more reason to send a much bigger vehicle. The second truck was a 12 tonner.
    My main problem with this is
    1 how badly the RAC performed before the C&S truck failed
    2 the actual failure and how that was handled
    3 how the RAC are handling the case now
