    I used to do it years ago, not sure I'd want to do it again though. Too much pucker factor for me.

    TaragoFan (if he's still lurking at all - goes by AzzurrA now) used to work for Mondial assistance on the phone. I've got a friend who did too if any insights at that level would be useful

    Do it locally for RAC when the others are on holidays. I don't do much on the phone side with RAC just customers and the contractor here.

    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

    Ops as in on road or more co-ord in the call center? When I was doing it we were dispatched via iSOS call center. They just had a checklist to work through before they contacted the on call operator.
    In my case majority of our call outs were for simple jobs, flat tyres, out of fuel, bits falling off the car. The worse bit was having to do a breakdown job on the side of the Federal(Hume) highway in the evening.

    Have done, as part of my business, but not anymore.

    If you're working for someone like the NRMA, etc not so bad. But in my case, people usually break down because they have no money to maintain the car, let alone fix it on the roadside.

    Also as per above, pucker factor is quite high in many cases. The narrowest part of the shoulder, along the only length of crash barrier for 30kms, is not the place to stop, and call for a right-side tyre change.
