Stuck tanker (Rotator)

Concern over buried power cables etc and a wish not to cause any further damage to the surrounding area made us choose the Rotator for this recovery. The access was very poor but once the Rotator was set up, the recovery was very straight forward. No further damage was caused to the machine or prope...

Laden trailer does a nose dive (Rotator)

We got called out to this trailer that had sunk into the ground after going through the yard surface etc. I was shocked to see how it had been loaded, 26T of engineering bricks were placed between the bulkhead and the first axle. Nothing was over the axles and obviously nothing behind. It was a diff...

Another Merc bites the dust (New Pete in action)

This truck was virtually new when it was involved in an RTC on the M25. Unfortunately the damage deems it a total loss. http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag57/mickgould1/Lenham%20storage/IMG_0348%20Copy_zpsgfkr7ewd.jpg http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag57/mickgould1/Lenham%20storage/IMG_0345%2...

MGC 6x6 Foden recoveries

We are only just starting to use this truck. There is a bit more to do to it yet, but it has performed well when we have used it. It's an ex-army Foden 6x6 with an Atlas rotating crane, 30T winch to the rear and 10T front winch. It has a Rolls Royce diesel engine. http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums...

Another foreign artic stuck

Awkward location in East Kent led to this Volvo slipping sideways into a ditch. It was heavily laden and completely blocked the access road to a remote construction site. The rotator had to go through orchards etc to get access to the front of the vehicle. Once winched out, further attention had to ...

Boat recovery M25

We were called out to the M25 and were initially told that the job was a trailer with a bearing gone...upon arrival it was found to be a boat on/off a trailer which had been rear-ended by an artic! Something must have been lost in translation along the way...? http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag5...

Top deck collapsed on car transporter M25

This transporter, loaded with classic cars, was on it's way to Italy when the top deck collapsed on the M25. Initially we were called out in the service van, but as photos show, not much could be done! The NRC was dispatched to support/lift the deck so it could be chained up and escorted back to ou...
