How does horsebox breakdown cover care for my horses?
Horseboxes have a tendency to break down more often than other vehicles. The reason is that in general they are used less frequently than commercial vehicles. This also results in these vehicles being kept longer and with age comes an increase in the likelihood of a breakdown. Whilst inconvenient it would not alone justify buying a new horsebox every few years. However, it would be prudent to make sure you have a good level of horsebox breakdown cover in place. This cover if required should extend to nationwide or driving abroad.
When a horsebox becomes disabled on the road due to an accident or mechanical failure, the horse owner will have their hands busy tending to their horses. This is necessary for many instances since most horses do not like vehicles whizzing by and the noise they make. Keeping them calm takes all the attention of the person who is looking after them.
The horsebox breakdown insurance can be brought into action in a situation like this with just a phone call or text. This makes it possible for the owner to care for their horses while a mechanic repairs the horsebox making the vehicle roadworthy once again.

The categories for weight include up to 3.5 tonnes, from 3.5 to 7.4 tonnes and over 7.4 tonnes.
The categories for age include 0 to 10 years, 11 to 20 years and 21 years and older.
