“When my VW Golf decided to blow up on the last leg of my long haul trip returning to Rotorua, I had no idea what to do! With no roadside assistance in place, I called Needatow, Rotorua Towing Services and they arrived on the scene within 30 minutes. They knew I was stressed and handled the situation really well. Dropping me off home on the way and delivering my prized possession off to the workshop was no big deal for my friendly driver. Thanks for helping me out!”
