I read mention of a fine, this is not a fine, the £150.00 is a charge for the recovery agent to cover their costs.
We must remember we live in a world where nothing is free.
As for the £150 I think that is a fair price when you consider the actual costs involved.
Don't walk in front of me I may not follow,
Don't walk behind me I may not lead,
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

How much does the recovery agent get out of the £150?

I heard it was £60 and NVRS get £90, I'd have thought it was the other way round as they do all the work and have to provide the equipment themselves!!

Thats not far away from what one of our recovery agents has said £45 for a straight forward recovery for a car. I agree with your thinking that the recovery agents would get the bigger bite.

...would the AA/RAC (had she been a member) recovered the car in this instance? If so, what steps would/should have been taken to establish if she were a member and organise for such recovery? Or would it be a case of just get the HA boys in first to reduce delays?
Who holds on to the keys?
If a HA appointed recovery agent can recover the vehicle with/without the keys, then why can't the RAC/AA? Who holds on to/doesn't hold on to the keys in the 1st scenario?
