Vehicle recovery services have always been a staple of our business. Generally speaking, auto recovery is exactly what it sounds like, in that we assist in retrieving your vehicle from wherever it may be and deliver it to wherever it needs to go. Whenever a situation arises where a standard tow just won’t do, specialized equipment may be brought in for recovery purposes.

There are many different scenarios which may call for recovery towing services, and customers may call us for help in retrieving cars, trucks, big rigs, commercial vehicles, RVs and trailers. In any case, if you find yourself in need of a little extra help, Contact Us right away to get you back on the road. 

When Might I Need Vehicle Recovery Services?

We’re veterans of the Evergreen State, and we know that the constant wet climate is not always agreeable with the vehicles we drive. As such, the most common recovery situations we encounter are those who have either veered off the main road into surrounding greenery or ditches, or drivers who have gotten stuck in wet grass or mud.

Other drivers may be forced to leave their vehicle behind and come back to it, usually because of a problem with the vehicle itself. We can help recover vehicles that have had any number of malfunctions, including  

- Flat tires

- Battery is dead or not strong enough to start the car

- Ran out of gasoline or engine oil

- Vehicle was broken into or damaged in a storm

- Mechanical issues, such as engine or transmission failures

- And more.  

Different Vehicle Types: Light vs. Heavy Duty

Customers routinely call us for help recovering all different types of vehicles. Passenger cars, such as sedans, coupes and SUVs, are considered light duty vehicles, and these are relatively straightforward to extract and transport, so long as we have a good understanding of the accident upon arrival.

However, we can also assist with vehicles that are considered heavy duty, including:

- Semi trucks
- Machinery and equipment
- Commercial vehicles and vans
- Buses and RVs

Whenever a recovery job is considered heavy duty, the difficulty increases. That is because heavy duty vehicles weigh a lot more than passenger cars and are awkward to maneuver. These accidents will typically require robust, specialized equipment in order to extract the vehicle safely and efficiently.

If a situation is especially precarious or severe, we may send multiple trucks and crew members to work in tandem. We may also have to spend some time on-site formulating the best course of action for a given situation, or switch things up if one method is unsuccessful. That is why it is in the customer’s best interest to give us as much information about the situation as possible, so that we can properly coordinate the right equipment and manpower.
