Two Roadside Assistance vans fitted with RDT:
These vans are driven by skilled technicians and equipped with the latest diagnostics machines and other tools to assist stranded motorists on the roadside quick. Our technicians have accomplished an 85% roadside fix rate, meaning the majority of vehicle they attend are fixed on the roadside. If our technicians are unable to fix a vehicle on the roadside then these vans are also fitted with an RDT (Rapid Deployment Trailer) which is used to recovery most vehicles. If a vehicle has broken down in a dangerous location then these vans also have a tow-pole which is used to quickly pull vehicles to a safe location to enable our technician to work on the vehicle is a safe place, keeping the motorist safe aswell.
Our recovery vehicles are fitted with “slidebed” bodies which means the entire platform of the truck slide off to enable us to recover any car with ease.
Two fully-demountable slidebeds:
These platforms lie nearly completely to the floor, which helps us assist with loading very low high-performance vehicles without the risk of causing damage to the bumpers.
Five Commercial slidebeds:
This enables us to fully lift and transport all large vans on our slidebed bodies up to 6.5tonne GVW.
