At this time of year as the weather deteriorates we find ourselves winching a lot more vehicles struggling to make deliveries to building sites or parking on grass verges etc .
As always the most important thing is its safe and prompt removal without further damage allowing it to keep working .

So for a fast and professional service in Surrey Greater London and the Home Counties give us a call on 0208 893 2845 ( 24 hrs a day )

NBFL Boris Buses / Hybrid Recovery

Bus and PSV RecoveryBus towing We have recently undertaken  moves for Wrightbus of the "NBFL " (New bus for London)

We spent some time in discussion with the manufacturer to understand the specialist requirement of these hybrid buses.

As with all new technology  some teething problems are inevitable and it is good to be working closely with a manufacturer like Wrightbus who like us strive not to meet our customers expectations but to better them .

Abnormal Load Recovery Heathrow Surrey

Heathrow Plant Reccovery
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 .

Trailer Drop

Crane Lift /Trailer dropped
This morning we were called out to attend a trailer that had become uncoupled from its unit on arrival we found it was in an alleyway entrance to a factory and was a dead end!
Using our Volvo Fm Pioneer we managed to side winch it enough to allow access for the Scania 164g Recoverer once past we had plenty of room to t bone the collapsed trailer and carry out a top crane lift before re-coupling  the unit after inspecting the 5th wheel mechanism.

Heavy winching job

Heavy winching 130 ton piling rigCalled out to assist with the righting and recovery of a 135 ton piling rig on the banks of the river thames in London

After the usual health n safety risk assesment method statement and cup of tea we rigged it up for the pull working with a subcontractor  and using  a 50 ton crawler crane as a deadman the job was completed with ease and saved the customer the cost of a 1000 ton crane @ 20k for a contracted lift.
