Horsebox Breakdown Insurance

Nudge your horsebox back into motion with horsebox breakdown insurance.

Let Shearwater and Equine Rescue Services come to your aid

There are those unhelpful times when your horsebox simply doesn’t want to move. Perhaps this is down to a mechanical fault, or because the battery has drained. Maybe it’s a case of changing the tyre but you don’t have the tools or a spare.

The job of breakdown assistance providers is to rescue you from your plight as soon as possible, diagnose the issue and, if they can, get your horsebox moving again, or failing that take it to a garage which can.

  • Roadside assistance and recovery
  • At home rescue & yard start
  • Onward transport of horses
  • Overnight accommodation for horses

With breakdown insurance from Shearwater you can be assured that we've included all of the useful little extras as well.  Battery rescue, onward travel and labour can all be included as part of a more comprehensive policy, so you can remain calm even if you find yourself in an unexpected situation.


Rescue & Recovery

Our Rescue cover makes sure you’re not left stranded by the side of the road, with breakdown assistance which will either try for roadside repair to see you on your way, even just as a temporary measure, or otherwise tow you to a nearby garage where further help will be at hand.

With the Recovery element this gives you a leg up from just roadside assistance, a recovery van can take you to your destination, wherever this is in the UK.


At home rescue

With battery issues accounting for many non-starters around the UK, breakdown recovery providers often find themselves on the home turf of their callers. While basic breakdown cover insists you need to be at least a quarter of a mile from the property where the vehicle is registered, at home rescue or yard start cover can offer you help even before you’ve had the chance to set off on your journey.


What to do in the event of a breakdown

  • When the wheels fell off my lorry the Shearwater team were incredible. They called to check up on me, they arranged recovery and when the lorry was deemed a write off I was even given the option of keeping the scrap or not.
