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.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions about HIAB Recovery

What is HIAB recovery?

HIAB recovery is a flatbed lorry with a crane mechanism that’s designed to lift vehicles that have broken down or been involved in an accident.

What is the benefit of HIAB recovery over a regular recovery vehicle?

There are several benefits. Firstly, the HIAB crane mechanism can safely and efficiently lift your vehicle out of a difficult spot. It can latch onto the chassis of a vehicle, no matter how damaged. This means risk of further damage to your vehicle is also minimised. A regular recovery vehicle that uses a basic winch has its limitations. While it’s fine in a basic recovery, it will struggle with recovering from hedges, trees, ditches or tight spots.

Where will you take my vehicle upon recovery?

We’ll take your vehicle to a garage or address of your choice.

How quickly can you reach me?

We can reach you within 15-30 minutes. This will depend on where you’re located, but we can give a time estimate over the phone.
