Our Recovery Vehicles in action
Here are some recent case histories of recoveries we have undertaken.
Because every incident is different, the recovery vehicle we send to the location and the methods we use to assist and recover are also different.
Attended with our commercial underlift T10 FCC, this vehicle had been caught out by the soft ground to the side of the road. The icy road conditions made matters worse and caused the vehicle to slip further off the road. Positioning our recovery vehicle to the rear of the casualty vehicle and performing a side-winch, the rear of the casualty vehicle was winched back to the road surface.
Once back on hard standing the vehicle was checked over and able to carry on with its journey.
A simple incident to be taken care of by one of our spec-lift recovery vehicles, the casualty vehicle had left the road and become wedged between the roadside wall and hedgerow. Using the winching equipment, the casualty vehicle was winched clear of the wall and hedgerow and back to the road surface without any further damage.
Another successful recovery.
Attending this casualty vehicle with our hi-ab accident unit P999 FCC, the casualty vehicle had left the main road and passed over the roadside hedgerow, ending upside down in a field. Using the hi-ab, we firstly righted the vehicle and then lifted the vehicle from the field onto the recover body of our vehicle.
Once complete, the vehicle was secured for transportation and the area cleared of debris. The casualty vehicle was recovered to our base to be stored and was later collected by a salvage agent on behalf of the vehicle insurance company.
Please note, no persons were injured in this vehicle resulting from the accident.
