Wonderful experience with GRS when my car battery died on a Sunday much to my despair. Sharon and James worked their magic and had me on my way in no time at all!10/10 would recommend their services if you find yourself in a car related pickle.

Absolutely 5 star service. I broke down this morning in the middle of a crossroad and GRS responded very promptly. Within 15 minutes of making the call a recovery truck appeared and took me to the agreed address. Jason the driver was very kind and did the job really fast and considering the situation of the car he made everything very safe. A highly recommended service

GRS guy picked me up with in the time frame given to me. I was so impressed of the level of service by the recovery chap I made an enquiry regarding a clutch and gearbox job for the van in question the next day. After speaking to Oz and the team I agreed for the work to be carried out. 4 weeks later my van runs better than it ever! Great customer service very friendly and very transparent with costing. Recommend +++++

Rob the man who came to my rescue was polite and extremely patient. Instead of making me feel stupid because I didn’t understand what was wrong, like some companies do, he took me around to the bonnet and showed me and explained to me in simple terms that I understood. He was very efficient and when he dropped me at the garage of my choice he made sure I was ok and wished me luck before he went on his way. What a great company to help me on my way and what a lucky company to have a man like Rob. Couldn’t recommend this company high enough they are brilliant! Thank you.

Absolutely fabulous service all around. The phone operator was exceptionally helpful, the first driver was really accommodating and assisted with moving me to a safe place while I waited for a suitable recovery vehicle. When that arrived this driver could not have been more helpful and considerate. All around excellent service!

Very painless recovery after our mini had serious timing chain related failure, booked via our admiral breakdown cover. Very helpful lady from GRS checked on phone that we were ok and confirmed recovery truck was on its way. James who recovered us made sure we were safe whilst loading and then unloading at the garage, and took good care of the car. He was very polite and helpful and went the extra mile to ensure we could try get our day back on track as soon as possible. Breaking down is never great but this made it as good an experience as it could have been!

On a 4 day Rugby tournament with my son, just outside Poole, I found myself in a predicament with my car. Unfortunately my clutch had gone and I was informed that GRS were coming to tow me back to Buckingham. I was contacted to say when and how they would be coming. Well all I can say is , what a wonderful experience from my driver. He was considerate, polite, caring and lovely. He said if I needed to stop at anytime, to let him know. He was a true person, who gave you amazing faith in the good in people. Thank you so much . Pam

Had fantastic service from the team when we broke down recently. Nik was with us in less than 30 mins and diagnosed the problem quickly. We live some distance away so Sharron sorted a courtesy car and Martin delivered the car to our local garage the following day. Great communication throughout, would highly recommend .

I was in McDonald's car park in Poole and my headlights drained my battery. I have breakdown cover but couldn't afford to wait so called GRS to help me out. I was attended to by a lovely and professional guy called Andy who quickly turned up and jump started my car and got me on my way again. I cannot praise Andy or GRS recovery enough... Absolutely professional and very very competitive rates. Thank you so much.

Called my breakdown company (Gem) who subcontract the closest breakdown company and GRS recovery came out to me when I had a flat battery. They carried out a test and it showed my battery was fine and I had left the interior light on. So charged my battery and made sure It was ok. The mechanic made me feel comfortable and wasn't just a sales man pushing me to buy a new battery. Would highly recommend GRS Recovery to anyone that needs honest advise.
13:46 04 Nov 18
Me and my partner broke down just off a338. Mike arrived quickly and soon had our 4x4 on his truck and feeling safe at last. He recovered us home and was so polite and friendly! Highly recommend GRS. A big thank you to Mike 🙂

I've used grs recovery for a good few years now and never been let down. They have helped transport everything from a ford ka to a Nissan skyline without a single problem and that was pretty low due to modified suspension. The reception is clean and inviting and they have a waiting area with comfy seating should you need to wait. Every recovery driver I've dealt with has been friendly and professional. I couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks guys.

We would like to thank Jason for helping us when our caravan lost a wheel in the New Forest. He was most helpful and friendly. He called out Jamie who arrived and managed to get the wheel sorted out to get us on our way. They then followed us for a while to make sure everything was o.k. We cannot thank them enough. Absolutely fantastic service!!

A big shout out and thankyou to GRS Recovery who sorted us out, after we'd heard some very dodgy noises from the back of the car we hadn't driven for the previous couple of weeks. It took Glen just a few minutes to confirm the cause, explain it in terms we could understand, apply the cure, test it and send us on our way once more. Great work, and many thanks again.

Fantastic service. Even with extremely heavy traffic a guy arrived in 10 minutes to check if he could get my Motorhome working but unfortunately the clutch had gone. We then had to wait for a larger recovery truck to come and get us. Shaun arrived and could not have been more polite, friendly and helpful. Excellent driver and enjoyed our 3 hour trip back home. It made a bad experience more palatable. From the guy on the end of the phone and both our Romanian mechanic to the lovely Shaun I can't recommend this company enough. Well done GRS Recovery, great work with a 5 star service. A very Happy customer.

Amazing service this morning. Our car broke down in Winchester BP services. After so many towing companies around Winchester area who couldn’t provide us service we contacted GRS services in Bournemouth. Sharon on the phone was lovely and did sorted out our situation very fast and within the few minutes she organised the towing truck for us. And then couple hours later Jason arrived. We were very happy to see him. He provided excellent service plus the drive to Bournemouth went very fast as we had good time and we talked about everything. Very glad we came across this company. Highly recommended!!!
15:37 21 Jul 18
Highly recommend. Andy from GRS came out to our business yesterday to take a project car of ours to London. Very professional and treated it as if it was his own. Many thanks.

Fantastic service from GRS. After breaking down in the centre of Bournemouth today and needing complete recovery of my vehicle I was so impressed with how quickly the recovery vehicle got to me.Rob, my knight in shining high vis, was totally professional and reassuring. So nice to have a friendly, kind, calm person in a stressful situation. Rob is a great credit to this excellent company. Thank you.

Had an excellent and extremely helpful experience with GRS last night. They got me home and my cat was delivers to me in the middle of the night, very quietly, as the first operator had the wrong kind of recovery vehicle for not damaging my car. I felt listened to and accommodated the whole way. Thank you so much GRS

Having been in an accident in the recent snow fall, we were quickly called by a gentleman called Andy who advised us of a collection time. Andy arrived exactly on time and could not have been more professional or helpful. He is a credit to himself and his company. I also dealt with a lady called Sharon at the GRS office today who was also extremely professional and helpful. GRS should be proud to have such great employees. Regards, Mr Smith.

As a local company providing Bouncy Castles all very Dorset we need a fast reliable and easy to deal with recovery company to come to the rescue when needed. GRS Recovey have been our go to company. We've been using them for a number of years now and they've helped us out so many times. Most recently in the busy December period twice.Sharon, Neil, Rich, Oz and the whole team provide a great service that we can rely on. Save their number to your phone as 24/7 they will answer your call and get someone out to you ASAP. Not just a recovery company though, they've often given me crucial mechanical advice and local experience that's saved me money and time. Highly recommended, thank you

Definitely 5 star service. I broke down Sunday morning and GRS responded very promptly and after getting my taxi started it would not stay running because battery was completely useless. Within 15 minutes of making the call a recovery truck appeared and took me to nearest battery retailer and I was soon on my way.So a big thank you to all the GRS staff involved as I was able to continue with days work keeping my wheelchair customers happy.

If Heineken did recovery ! Fabulously professional outfit and staff who took great care of the vehicle and me. A very clean truck and first class driver turned up and made an unenjoyable late night breakdown in the rain a much more bearable experience. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

I broke down whilst on Holiday in Poole, Dorset, staying at Rockley Park. GRS recovery brought me my family and my car all the way back to Penarth in South Wales. The driver/technician Robbie was exceptional.If anyone is anywhere in Dorset and has the unfortunate problem of a breakdown don`t hesitate in calling GRS they are a well organised and well trained team of professionals.

I have just experienced GRS’s superb service. My car had broken down at Poole harbour ferry car park and the RAC had authorised recovery to my local garage in Hertfordshire. GRS phoned me soon after to confirm my location and the expected time they could send one of their trucks to meet me. A bit later the driver phoned me to let me know he was held up in the traffic waiting for the ferry and asked if I was able to drive the car at all, and if so could he meet up with me on the road outside the ferry area? I was able to do this and we met up. My car was soon loaded onto his truck and we set off, though the driver was concerned he’d go over his allocated hours on the vehicles tachograph by the time he could return to his base. This was overcome by us rendezvousing with another GRS driver at the M27 service area who took over the vehicle I was travelling in and completed the journey to Hertfordshire in good time. Both drivers were extremely competent, professional and good company to travel with. Many thanks GRS for all your help.
