The recovery of this self propelled aircraft pallet handler following a collision with a plane it had remained stationary at London Heathrow for 18 months as they were unable to repair it and movement back to Italy where it was made was quoted at £30000 .
We arranged local recovery to enable renowned fabrication and engineering Co GSR to repair it in a fraction of the cost and time quoted .
First job was to raise the hydraulic suspension the engine had been partially stripped for spares whilst parked so we piped an additional lines from the rear of our recovery vehicle and installed hydraulic line lock outs ( similar to a hiab legs ) to leave it raised .
We then after the procurement of a movement order due to its abnormal width recovered it by means of suspend tow to its place of repair escorted in accordance with current self escorting guidelines .
Thanks must go to Colin at KCS Heavy Haulage for his advice and knowledge given freely and the term "passionately professional" was made for this man.
So if you have something unusual needing recovery we are used to odd requests we do a lot of work for film and television companies and if we cant move it we will know who can!
