Welcome to A1 Recovery

A1 Recovery is based in Havant Hampshire and provides full set price car servicing, repair and maintenance for your vehicle as well as emergency breakdown recovery, fuel drain and storage services.

A1 Recovery was formed out of frustration at the lack of quality service and support available in the motor trade. Having run a successful service company for some years the directors of A1 were frustrated by a lack of reliable service, repair and specialist vehicle recovery agents, and with this in mind they took the bull by the horns and started A1 Recovery. With their director being previously from a motor trade back ground they found it was an easy choice and then put together a fresh but experienced team to join them.

A1 operate a true 24 hour 7 day a week vehicle breakdown recovery service across Hampshire and West Sussex.

We offer all garage services from changing a light bulb to a major Service and MOT testing.

If you have put the wrong fuel in your car there is a solution, call A1 Recovery and we can help.

I was treated very well and with respect I was advised of the requirement for new brake pads on the front (which I already knew about so knew this was genuine) I wasn’t asked if I wanted them to do it now pressure or sell was put on me I did however ask for a price which someone called me with which is very reasonable so I will use them to do this. Very positive experience. Couldn’t have been better in fact.”

  • “I dropped the car off at 8am and picked it up a little before 5pm. The staff were all helpful and friendly, and accommodating. That includes when I called ahead to warn that I might not make 5pm due to transport issues. They informed me that they’d be there beyond 5pm, so no problem if I was later.”
