You may have got used to seeing RS Recovery service vans in and around Basingstoke and surrounding, we have now acquired a new depot in the South, near Southampton.
The opportunity was presented to us after our long-time industry friends announced that they were hanging up their keys after 40 years in the recovery industry. R.D. Avery were leading providers of breakdown, accident and vehicle recovery services across Hampshire, Wiltshire and beyond and we are priveledged to be trusted to build upon their solid foundations. Our new depot is home to 11 service vans and 6 recovery trucks – some new, some relocated from the Midlands.
Our service van technicians have vast industry experience, some with over 20 years in the industry, some Master Technicians from main dealers but all of them willing to do whatever it takes to get your vehicles moving.
As you may know, we are approved service agents for Haldex, Wabco, Gray & Adams, Tiger Trailers, TIP, Schmitz-Cargobull and more. All of our technicians have and continue to receive comprehensive training on these trailers, guaranteeing that you receive optimal service in the most efficient and budget-friendly manner.
Each service van is presented to our technicians fully stocked with parts and equipment that are then tailored to each service van dependent upon their customer base and work load. They also carry welders, generators and gas bottles; 90% of our 5 tonne service vans have a winch, ensuring that we stick to our promise of minimal downtime for our customers.
As for the trucks, you may recognise RS70 RSR – one of our more versatile trucks, originally based at our Tipton Head Office. With a FAS8000+6 system, which features a bed weight capacity of 8000kg and an under-lift capacity of 6000kg, it is capable of recovering anything from a car to a HGV.
FH72 NRC is also based down South. NRC 40T Composite Slider mounted onto a Volvo FH16 750. Find out more here.
