This year’s Tow Show is now under 100 days away and we are inviting entries for our Recovery of the Year competition in association with the AA. The inaugural winner of the award was Tears Recovery of Spalding in Lincolnshire.
Those who know him well will tell you it doesn’t happen often, but today, at least, Rob Flello is exasperated.
“It’s a hugely important cog in the wheel of our national life but it never receives the appreciation it deserves, and that’s galling,” he says.
The ‘it’ which is the object of the MP’s frustration is the UK’s vehicle recovery industry and its army of workers.
CARS has established itself as the most exciting event for End of Life Vehicles (ELVs), metals recyclers and other related material reprocessors in Europe.
We love to hear from operators on some of their more spectacular jobs, but most operators don’t have the time to tell us about it – or are you just too shy?
For that reason we are indebted to Alan Stay of Stag Lane Motors on the Isle of Wight for not only contacting us, but for going into intricate detail about every stage of his cliff top recovery performed in early December of last year.
Alan’s narrative takes us through every stage of a unique recovery and he explains how he and his team had to improvise their own techniques and equipment to winch the vehicle 250 feet up a steep rockface.
Read on and please can we have more stories from you!!
