We’ve recently taken delivery of our latest vehicle from Boniface Engineering. A 2011 Volvo FH with i-Shift was chosen at the chassis and an Mk6 Interstator with twin winches and stiff legs options. The vehicle is also equipped with a VDZ towing kit allowing it to recover the latest manufacturer vehicles. It made its first appearance at TruckFest Knutsfords alongside RS17 REC”300″ and as you can see we went for something special for the paintwork again. It features Call of Duty theme crafted by Matt the Painter.
RS17 REC was captured by Rob Payne on the M5 near Strensham. A great picture don’t you think.

We had the pleasure to assist the West Midlands Emergency services by recovering a bus into place on the A38 Aston Express Way in Birmingham. An exercise was undertaken throughout the night and coordinated with a number of agencies to simulate a major road traffic incident. National Express West Midlands who’d provided the bus, asked us to deliver it and put it place with a number of special requirements so that it was as realistic as possible.
We were glad to have been involved in such an exercise and its importance for continually improving the emergency services. A short video on the West Midlands Fire Service can be viewed below.
We welcome the addition of an ex-Army Foden 6×6 recovery truck with rotating crane.
With the addition of the Foden we believe it will allow us to tackle the most challenging of incidents. The rotating crane is a fantastic bit of kit which will give greater agility on-scene. It will also help improve the time it takes to complete the task at hand.
A big thank you to ASW Recovery in Norwich who have sold us this to us. They are retiring from the industry and we snapped this up as we knew it had been well looked after. Bob and Joyce have been great to deal with over the years and we wish them a well deserved, relaxing retirement.
