Our fleet of specially modified vehicle can assist you no matter what your roadside problem.
As well as providing a quality recovery service, vehicle breakdowns sometimes do not require a vehicle to be transported. Often a jump start is all that is needed, mainly during winter when the cold starts to affect aging batteries. Our experienced team are able to come to you whether it be at home or a work place car park and start your car for you using booster packs.
We have three fleet support vehicles which are constantly on standby to assist with minor vehicle problems where towing is unnecessary. Our fleet support vehicles consist of Ford Transits and a Vauxhall Movano equipped with 150L tank compressors for spare/flat tyre applications. We carry a wide range of tools for unexpected situations and professional 7 tonne blue point trolley jacks for easy access to the underneath of a vehicle if necessary. Our vehicles have 2 powerful 12volt batteries permanently being powered by the engine connecting to an external fused feed running through the front of the bumper. Having this setup means starting even the largest of vehicles is easy, even after being stood for a long period of time.
Often having a tyre go flat on the road can be a major issue. On a motorway it can be even more stressful. We can be on our way to you within minutes to help you get back on your way. We have had situations where a customer cannot find the locking wheel key to remove the damaged wheel. We carry equipment to remove the locking nut without causing damage to alloy wheels.
Putting the wrong fuel in your car is an unfortunate situation we have faced in the past. As cars get more advanced, it is harder to just drain the tank and put in the correct fuel, this can often cause more damage to your car. We do not carry equipment to resolve your fuel problem on the station forecourt but we do recommend garages throughout Manchester we can deliver your car to and as a result get you a 20% discount on the decontamination work carried out.
We operate 3.5 tonne beavertail trucks for small and medium sized cars. Equipped with low loading aluminium beds with 9 tonne capacity winches, our vehicles are adapted to recover cars with low front bumpers/spoilers without causing damage.
We use our Mitsubishi Canter 7.5 tonne for carrying larger cars and vans, small 3.5 skeletal trucks and tippers. With a powerful tilt and slide recovery bed it is capable of loading up to 3.5 tonne vehicles and has a hydraulic winch capable of pulling 12 tonnes. This can often be used to pull stranded cars/vans from off road sites. We also operate a Mercedes Atego 815 with the same hydraulic tilt and slide and winch setup.
