For years the AA has been helping out car owners in times of emergency and now they can rescue distressed homeowners as well after unveiling a brand new home rescue service.
The AA has launched a brand new subscription-based call out service for homes, AA Home Emergency Response, under which customers will now be able to call the AA nationwide to deal with any problems that arise in their home.
AA Home Emergency Response can be accessed 24/7, 365 days a year and can be called on for the most common household emergencies.
These include broken down boilers, burst pipes and faulty electrics.
The AA says this “means an end to the financial worry of call-out charges and the stress of having to find a skilled tradesman in an emergency”.
AA Ireland CEO Brendan Nevi said that the company is “convinced that the demand is there” for such a service.
He said that whether it is an uncontrolled leak or a wasp’s nest in the garage, the service sends a “skilled, reliable and professional” tradesperson to the home immediately.
The launch of AA Home Emergency Response will be supported by a radio advertising campaign featuring Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star John Cleese.
AA Home Emergency Response cover includes no call-out charges and for work carried out under the policy, parts and labour are guaranteed. Cover is available to both existing AA members and non-members.
The service is available from €19.99 per month. More details are available here.
