GEM first sprang up in 1932: the story goes that their founder was on his way to meet friends at a hotel in Worthing when he was involved in a near miss with a young man in a sports car. He and his friends then decided to form the Company of Veteran Motorists, and so begins the GEM story. Since 1978 they have been providing breakdown recovery and have become one of the UK’s most trusted suppliers.
With over 5,000 recovery vehicles up and down the country they provide great service no matter where you are. Voted No.1 For Overall Service and Best Value For Money in the Auto Express Driver Power Survey 2016, you know you’re getting quality when you get covered with GEM. As well as breakdown cover, they also champion Road Safety activities and campaigns, all part of their efforts to keep Britain safe on the roads.
