Our Recovery Equipment

HIAB Lorry

Our HIAB lorry can lift your vehicle out of a difficult or tight spot with ease. If your motorcycle, car, van or small truck has been in an accident we can lift it onto our flatbed truck and transport it to your chosen destination.

Our HIAB recovery lorry uses a full car lift to safely lift vehicles that have been involved in an accident both on and off the road. Whether your vehicle is caught in a ditch, hedge or tree, we can recover it without causing any more damage to the vehicle.


Skates are designed to quickly and easily lift a vehicle from beneath the wheels. They are used for recovering cars or light commercial vehicles on a hard, flat surface when the wheels cannot be rotated. Skates are placed under the locked wheel of the vehicle to be able to manoeuvre the car easily without causing any damage.

The vehicle can be easily loaded onto one of our accident recovery vehicles and recovered to a garage or location of your choice. Skates are also used to recover vehicles where the handbrake is stuck on or when a driver is unable to gain access to the inside of the vehicle, this includes lost keys.

4×4 Recovery

Had an accident or broken down in a rural location? Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk are covered in lovely countryside but there is always a risk of breaking down or having an accident down a narrow country lane or muddy track. Just pulling off the road to let a tractor or larger vehicle pass can see you stuck on the verge. Our 4×4 is fully equipped to recover vehicles in all weather and hard to reach locations.

A professional team by all standards: Lee, driver; Jeanette, office manager. They helped recover my car in a swift and expert manner while braving -6C, frozen equipment, and long traffic delays. I strongly recommend their services.

We dealt with Lee today and he was first rate. We were collecting a car from them and he could not have been more helpful. We are also a Breakdown and Recovery company and we appreciate the effort that Lee made to make our experience there today a great one. Keep up the good work. Parker Fry Recovery Ltd

Exceptionally professional and diligent! Lee really owned the problem and fitted me into their busy schedule asap. He helped me get my car towed and arrived in a timely manner and dealt with the whole situation so politely and kindly. Thank you so much. I highly recommend them and would definitely use their services again if I need to in the future.

Wonderful service. They picked up the phone immediately late at night and had someone out to tow my car within 45 minutes. Made quick work of the towing and the gentleman who picked me/the vehicle up was incredibly nice and actually super helpful aside from just the towing - during the drive we chatted about the car and he listened to it try to start on arrival and even diagnosed the issue; saved me tons of money and time! Thanks again for the rescue!
