What heavy vehicle recovery is straight-forward? Oversized or unstable loads? Toxic or flammable liquids? Hard or soft ground? These types of incident require the skills of a recovery operator with specialist experience and the equipment to rescue your vehicle and its payload from any possible danger.

Air cushion recovery, forensic recovery and specialist recovery services

Specialist recovery scenes

All of our heavy vehicle recovery units are equipped with air cushion technology to give the ability to ‘right’ an overturned vehicle from their side on any type of ground and in any recovery situation. Our teams of recovery operators are all trained in the use and deployment of airbag recovery as an additional tool for use within these complicated rescue situations.

When the potential danger is down to the hazard of the payload and that load is flammable, explosive or toxic, then you need all of the skills of an accredited operator to recover your vehicle safely and efficiently, and ensure that no harm comes to your driver or the public at large. With the skills of our recovery operators, low loader facilities and literally hundreds of hours of experience recovering tankers safely from any given situation, then Cosgroves Recovery should be your first call.

Our work often brings us into contact with many local police forces and the Highways Agency, where we work in conjunction with them recovering vehicles from all types of road traffic accidents and incidents. For this type of situation, where there is an additional requirement to contain evidence for accident investigation purposes, we can provide a ‘one-lift’ recovery service.

Once safely recovered and transported back to one of our depots, we are able to maintain any evidence traces and provide a clean and contained working environment for accident investigators to carry out their necessary work, within one of our covered forensic examination bays.

If you are a police force, transport agency, accident investigator or motor insurance provider and you require specialist recovery services, we would be happy to provide a quote for the provision of any of the above.

For additional information on the specialist recovery services we can provide, including air cushion lift, tanker recovery and forensic vehicle recovery and management, call us today on 01430 449309 for an initial discussion.
