Inside<br />

Hello and welcome to the latest<br />

issue of <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Magazine<br />

It has been difficult to avoid the extreme<br />

conditions and basking heatwave most of<br />

Europe has experienced recently and now<br />

the forecast is for flash flooding, so brace<br />

yourselves for more challenges.<br />

For most of us it’s been a case of nipping into<br />

somewhere air conditioned for a quick breather<br />

or grabbing an ice-cream along the way.<br />

Vehicle volumes will have increased due<br />

to the main summer holiday period, so once<br />

again it is testament to the recovery industry<br />

who continue to provide a seamless service to<br />

the public and businesses alike helping keep<br />

the road network moving in a defiant manner<br />

whatever the time of year, whatever weather,<br />

conditions, or challenges are thrown into the<br />

mix.<br />

This time of year also puts us a step closer to<br />

the Tow Show, and inside this issue on page 15,<br />

you will find details about the fantastic prizes<br />

being provided by Equipment Sponsor RED as<br />

part of their 2022 ‘Great Bundle Prize Giveaway.’<br />

There are also important announcements<br />

on pages 14 and 16 as we welcome CMG and<br />

National Highways to this year’s show as key<br />

sponsor partners.<br />

From the team here at <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong><br />

and the Tow Show we wish you all an enjoyable<br />

summer and hopefully a well-deserved break<br />

along the way too.<br />

Hope you enjoy the magazine.<br />

The <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators<br />

Federation, is delighted that ISUZU have kindly<br />

agreed to become the federations new sponsor.<br />

As PROF grows from strength to strength, the<br />

funding and support from all of our industry<br />

stakeholders is vital in growing the platforms of<br />

communication and expanding the success of the<br />

PROFCon series of conferences.<br />

Isuzu Trucks are a global brand, many VRO’s,<br />

operate ISUZU’s as an integral part of their fleets.<br />

I have operated ISUZU’s trucks for nearly 20 years,<br />

and still do when I can get a chassis.<br />

ISUZU Trucks are an integral truck supplier to<br />

the recovery industry and PROF is delighted to<br />

announce Isuzu Truck UK as the main sponsor of the<br />

<strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators Federation.<br />

Richard Goddard<br />

President<br />

<strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators Federation<br />

Isuzu Truck UK signs main<br />

sponsorship agreement with PROF<br />

Leading CV manufacturer Isuzu Truck UK has announced that it is to become the official sponsor of the <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong><br />

Operators Federation (PROF), with effect from the annual PROFCon conference that took place in July 2022. The sponsorship,<br />

scheduled to run up to and including PROFCon 2023, will see Isuzu Truck working closely with the management team at PROF<br />

to help support their stated goals of improving and raising standards within the UK recovery industry.<br />

Richard Goddard, President of the<br />

<strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators<br />

Federation, said “Historically, ITUK<br />

have always had a very close association<br />

with the vehicle recovery industry. For<br />

many Vehicle <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators, Isuzu has<br />

become the go to truck, and this has been<br />

the case for quite a number of years now.”<br />

Richard continued, “I feel their brand<br />

breeds trust and confidence throughout<br />

the recovery industry and am hopeful<br />

that the same trust and confidence can<br />

be reflected towards PROF, through their<br />

sponsorship.<br />

As the motor industry faces generational<br />

changes such as environmentally friendly<br />

Electric vehicles and perhaps some-day<br />

in the future, driverless vehicles, it is vital<br />

we have an understanding of what will be<br />

required to recover those vehicles when<br />

the need arises.<br />

ITUK has consistently supplied the<br />

trucks that help this industry meet those<br />

challenges face on. I have always felt part<br />

of the Isuzu family and in 2008 I flew out to<br />

Tokyo, to the home of Isuzu, and witnessed<br />

the size and scale of the company, which<br />

was an experience I will never forget. So, I<br />

am now delighted to welcome Isuzu Trucks<br />

into our Federation as part of our industry<br />

and a welcome partner of the <strong>Professional</strong><br />

<strong>Recovery</strong> Operators Federation.”<br />

Commenting on the sponsorship<br />

agreement, Pete Murphy, managing director<br />

at Isuzu Truck UK said, “We believe that<br />

the <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Operators<br />

Federation provides an excellent platform<br />

for communication between all relevant<br />

stakeholders within the industry. Hopefully<br />

our sponsorship agreement will help to<br />

enable the Federation to continue its great<br />

work and further develop the strategic<br />

partnerships that are so essential in today’s<br />

ever-changing and increasingly complex<br />

world.”<br />

RECOVERYINSIDER<br />

JD <strong>Recovery</strong><br />

call last orders<br />

<strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong>, 18 magazine issues a year, well it’s no secret, it isn’t<br />

always easy to find content to write about, but sometimes the subject<br />

matter has been around for decades, the detail around it changes, and with<br />

a bit of fresh thinking and in most cases additional research, we can create<br />

fresh interest from an old subject.<br />

However, I find the best and most interesting subjects come from real life<br />

experience and with recession just around the corner, perhaps now is the<br />

time to focus on the reality of a broken industry.<br />

by Derek Firminger<br />

The detail and evidence within this edit comes at the detriment<br />

of one of this industry’s long standing family businesses that<br />

was in its 3rd generation and should have been financially<br />

sound for another 3 generations, bringing young blood into the<br />

industry, maintaining good family values, good customer practices,<br />

building relationships and God willing seeing a good return on<br />

capital investment and hard work.<br />

As I reported a couple of issues ago, recovery operators are<br />

going out of business faster than your local pubs are closing and<br />

that is no exaggeration. A lot of people will level this at bad business<br />

management and in some respects, I would be foolish to say<br />

otherwise but when you’re deeply involved in the heart of a family<br />

run business, you may be forced to accept some onerous terms. It<br />

becomes easy to see how it ends up out of hand, with those same<br />

family businesses almost forced to accept it or be pushed aside.<br />

I like to call this corporate bullying, but those responsible might<br />

shudder at that thought, I suppose that depends on your guilt!<br />

Where am I going with this? My question is what additional<br />

evidence does this industry need?<br />

I have contacted several companies that found themselves at the<br />

door to the receiver, just deciding to close the doors or they have<br />

pushed the barriers to the last moment before finally conceding<br />

and calling the receiver. Previously I’ve attempted to discuss these<br />

desperate decisions but every time I’ve had a knockback and a<br />

refusal to talk or interview. I understand why, finding your business<br />

in that situation can never be easy and is especially difficult to talk<br />

about. It seems crazy to say but, in this situation, you become<br />

busier than ever, juggling all the balls, as the receiver adds more and<br />

more pressure.<br />

Setting aside time to sit-down with Derek Firminger to discuss<br />

what has happened so I can set-out an editorial will be the last<br />

thing on their mind.<br />

That was not the case with both Dave and Emma Drew of JD<br />

<strong>Recovery</strong> because they have just pushed that barrier as far as<br />

10 PROFESSIONAL RECOVERY MAGAZINE<br />

10, 11, 12, 13 DF.indd 1 16/08/2022 12:11


RECOVERYINSIDER<br />

they could. That family business I refer to, putting the customer<br />

and those time-built relationships before any financial reward and<br />

believe it or not, in the final moments they are still thinking about<br />

the customer they will be letting down, leaving it to the very last<br />

minute, before voluntarily calling the receiver.<br />

I’ve known Dave and Emma for a lot of years, admittedly I only see<br />

them at industry functions. IVR AGM is always an annual reunion<br />

as they are staunch IVR supporters and the Tow Show, where they<br />

regularly had a new truck on display, generally a J&J build with all<br />

the refined extras and attention to detail like no other. But as soon<br />

as I heard they had voluntarily placed the company into liquidation<br />

I was straight on the phone, firstly asking was there anything I could<br />

do to help and secondly, were they prepared to talk to me and<br />

highlight the causes behind their decision.<br />

We’re talking about a very successful recovery and workshop<br />

business, started in 1976 by John Drew, Dave’s father, hence the<br />

name JD <strong>Recovery</strong>. John retired some 5 years ago but made the<br />

effort to come into the office the day I visited, thank you John, also<br />

there was the 3rd generation, Dave and Emma’s son Lewis. This is<br />

just what I’m talking about, 3 family generations working within the<br />

one firm.<br />

A little bit more background<br />

Dave also had a very successful workshop business that ran<br />

alongside the recovery operation, perhaps too successful in a<br />

strange way, as few years ago the decision was made to sell it, as it<br />

was too much of a distraction from his first love - recovery.<br />

No financial figures mentioned but I do know it paid well and<br />

between them happy families. Now the workshop shared the yard<br />

area with the recovery storage area, so although Dave and Emma<br />

no longer owned the workshop they still worked very closely with<br />

the new owners, that super friendly nature they have just flows from<br />

them both. Even with these added pressures, the day I was there<br />

Dave along with his workshop colleagues made a temporary repair<br />

to a transporter that had an electrical fault, partly loaded blocking<br />

the yard, this operator, not to be named, was collecting some of<br />

Dave’s workshop equipment, not a disabled car.<br />

The purpose of my day at JD’s was not to do a deep dive into<br />

their business and help them to recover, restructure and stabilise<br />

the books but in those few hours I was there I hope the little<br />

bit of advice given was still valuable, but I wish they had called<br />

me some time ago, I would have loved to have got involved and<br />

helped before it was too late. Not advertised but assistance with<br />

operational issues and restructure is part of my consultancy offer.<br />

No, I was there to write an editorial piece for <strong>Professional</strong><br />

<strong>Recovery</strong> magazine, to help the readers, the recovery operators<br />

understand the fundamentals that spiralled this business into an<br />

unrecoverable debt situation and voluntary liquidation.<br />

At the same time this edit will let both Dave and Emma speak out,<br />

because this was a rollercoaster without any brakes and in some<br />

respects it still is, because although the company is now under<br />

administration, there are still demands being made by one of their<br />

largest, yet indirect customers, namely AA Developments Limited<br />

(AADL), representing, Surrey and Sussex police, under one joint<br />

contract, however and important, JD’s only work for Surrey and<br />

Hampshire police under a separate AADL contract.<br />

As I’m writing this, I’m sensing the responsibility I have in reporting<br />

this openly and honestly and not just pointing the finger, but also<br />

recognising the massive sacrifice Dave and Emma are making by<br />

speaking out. As this message highlights just how fragile this industry<br />

is and having what was once considered the very best of industry<br />

contracts, doesn’t necessarily mean that still applies today.<br />

The downward financial spiral of JD’s doesn’t just land at the feet<br />

of the two police forces and its managing agent, but if you’re going<br />

to issue financially crippling contracts to those who are meant to<br />

be your associates/operating partners then I guess you can expect<br />

nothing less than being part of the headline, a bit like being the<br />

named party in a divorce, the other side that committed adultery!<br />

No, that spiral started as COVID hit in the March of 2020, and<br />

the full affects have only properly hit home in the last three to six<br />

months. Yes, a healthy business in the March and slowly but surely<br />

an eroded balance sheet today.<br />

I do not need to spell out the financial losses through COVID but<br />

a worthless reminder of the short-term help by way of government<br />

support, furlough payments, deferring your vat or the COVID<br />

bounce back loan scheme all good help at the time, but short<br />

term and the majority must be paid in the long run. Every recovery<br />

business saw the job numbers fall off a cliff. JD’s was no different,<br />

in fact there was a period of no work at all and Dave placed 80%<br />

of his staff on furlough, just keeping the family members on payroll<br />

managing what little work was coming in. Working in such a rural<br />

area having to travel miles to an incident starts to pay less and less<br />

as the fuel price increases and insurance premiums almost double<br />

amongst all the other rising costs.<br />

Why was there no direct support?<br />

The question must be asked, why was there no direct support<br />

from any of his customers as Dave tells me he received “nothing”.<br />

Insurance companies and breakdown clubs were still receiving<br />

funds from membership renewals with very little outgoings, plus<br />

you would have thought at least one or both the police contracts<br />

or the managing agent, would have at least made a reduction in the<br />

management fee. This has proven to be a very short-sighted policy<br />

as any subcontract network has to be financially viable, underpaying<br />

for a service will not support any network, and quite frankly is<br />

irresponsible.<br />

I reflect on the broken industry model once more. As a lot of<br />

the recognised recovery contracts, clubs, work providers, call it<br />

what you like, operate on a pin in the map scenario. Without too<br />

much detail this gives an operating point to start and finish mileage<br />

payments, sorry I meant to say, a start and finish point for free or<br />

inclusive mileage deductions!<br />

Now as companies come and go the pin generally stays static,<br />

for example the pin in Guildford that McAllister’s <strong>Recovery</strong><br />

historically had all those years ago didn’t move when they went<br />

into receivership. Incidentally, you would have thought Surrey<br />

Police would have learnt their lesson that day in July 2013, as I can<br />

remember helping bail them out - Surrey police that is.<br />

Anyway, JD’s inherited McAllister’s pin for a whole number of club<br />

contracts, with the free mile’s element built into the contracts.<br />

Which meant the free mileage clock could be as much as 50 miles<br />

on some occasions, and of course this eroded into the value of a<br />

small portion of their work.<br />

Not ideal by any imagination, but this remained viable for Dave<br />

and JD’s with the pre COVID job numbers, as they managed enough<br />

volume the additional milage deduction was a rare thing but<br />

nevertheless an element of free mileage was always there. That was<br />

PROFESSIONAL RECOVERY MAGAZINE 11<br />

10, 11, 12, 13 DF.indd 2 16/08/2022 11:19


RECOVERYINSIDER<br />

fine until the massive downturn in job numbers and ever-increasing<br />

operating costs, with most, not all club work operating on a rate<br />

that hadn’t seen increases for nearly 10 years and with less volume,<br />

the mileage travelled to scene was a more regular thing.<br />

The very same story reverberates up and down the country.<br />

This once again drags my message back to the broken industry<br />

business model, will the same thing happen with JD’s pin, will the<br />

next operator be forced to travel miles before receiving a mileage<br />

payment, is anyone going to learn after the fate of JD’s?<br />

All these factors resulted in Dave slowly exiting from those lossmaking<br />

contracts, just retaining a few that continued to pay a small<br />

premium, plus the three Police contracts being the main work<br />

concentration.<br />

JD’s Police facilities were second to none<br />

This brings the conversation back to the three police contracts, a<br />

massive part of this is SOCO and Mechanical Examination and the<br />

subsequent safe secure and well-maintained storage facility. JD’s<br />

Police facilities were second to none and without doubt they would<br />

have met the up-and-coming ISO regulations all police forces have<br />

to meet by April next year. In short ALL 43 UK Police Forces must be<br />

certified to ISO/IEC 17025, an iso standard for off-site examination.<br />

In addition, the secure storage facility with managed digital entry<br />

systems and full site CCTV, far exceeds the required standards.<br />

It is my understanding that JD’s had some 97 vehicles on police<br />

retention. For the uninitiated, these are vehicles retained for<br />

evidential purposes. Great you might think, it can sit in my yard on<br />

storage for as long as you like, happy days you might say.<br />

NO, in most cases, I cannot say all because I’m not privy to all the<br />

police contracts that are out there today, but certainly these three<br />

forces, Surrey, Sussex combined and Hampshire, all managed by<br />

AADL, this storage under retention is FREE, no I’m not talking about<br />

free mileage again, NO this time FREE storage, for the duration the<br />

vehicle is retained for evidential purposes.<br />

A crafty element to the contract pricing schedule because<br />

you don’t sign up to free storage, NO what you do is agree to a<br />

contract that has no mention of storage, so how can you charge<br />

for it? (Before you accuse Dave for breaking his non-disclosure<br />

agreement, he didn’t).<br />

The contract you agreed to and terms you sign up to, on face<br />

value would, or could easily appear to be good and of course<br />

agreeing to these terms must be your commercial decision, a<br />

lot may say, why the bloody hell would you sign such an onerous<br />

contract?<br />

I think that’s easier to answer than you would think, guaranteed<br />

work. Some of it pays well, never considering just how much is for<br />

free, not realising just how many vehicles you could have in free<br />

storage and for how long. If there were 20 or 30 vehicles with an<br />

average of perhaps 6 months, then perhaps you could live with it,<br />

personally I still think all the associated cost for every job should be<br />

placed within the full costs of the claim, crime related or not. So,<br />

it’s not just extortionate job or agent fees, no that just adds insult to<br />

injury.<br />

This is just the point you have no control over these numbers,<br />

how many or for what period you could be expected to store<br />

something for. What do I mean by that? Would you ever expect to<br />

have nearly 100 vehicles under retention, with some going back for<br />

over 4 years? Yes 4 years free storage, “that is when a bad contract<br />

becomes real”.<br />

While I was there at JD’s, just talking things through to get an<br />

understanding just how they found themselves in this situation,<br />

something very special was happening, I’m not sure if it surprised<br />

me or not. They went into voluntary receivership on the 29th of<br />

July. The Police and AADL were written to with a full explanation.<br />

Dave told me just how difficult it was telling the staff they all had to<br />

be laid off. The very next day trucks were being collected by finance<br />

companies, their world had fallen apart, stupid to say perhaps, but<br />

the hairs on my arms and the back of my neck just stood up as I was<br />

writing this, I feel quite engrossed in this now.<br />

I went there on the 11th August, the whole Drew family are, you<br />

would think just sorting their personal possessions and getting their<br />

assets ready for auction, so they get the best price, but no, they’re<br />

still managing both police scheme vehicles, releasing vehicles they<br />

won’t get paid for and on top of that, they personally won’t get paid.<br />

Worse than that, the Police scheme manager was expecting it. I<br />

couldn’t print what I would do or say, it wouldn’t be fair.<br />

They, (AADL) should have attended JD’s the very next day, to<br />

support them and to manage their vehicles retained as evidence<br />

and duly managed their removal to alternative storage. There was<br />

also a duty to agree payment terms for the incoming recovery.<br />

As a reminder, the statutory fee table agreed by government in<br />

2008, currently under review, yes we await the revision, held up<br />

for a number of reasons. Anyway the daily storage rate as agreed<br />

is £20.00 per day, this is the astonishing thing, as we are talking the<br />

security gate buzzes and Dave goes down and releases a car that<br />

has been on retention following a statutory removal, so involved in<br />

crime, the job came in, in February 2019 and has been in storage<br />

FREE since then, retained as proceeds of crime, 34 months, that’s<br />

1,054 days give or take a few days as I’ve not got the actual dates,<br />

“I wonder how come it just got released, coincidence that it’s no<br />

longer needed as evidence,” I don’t think so, this is lazy Policing and<br />

I suspect bad management by the managing agents.<br />

Quick calculation, 1,054 days x £20 = £21,080.00 what do you<br />

think they got paid? £50.00 Now that is a crime, and somebody<br />

must be held to account.<br />

One of the biggest problems and the final straw for Dave was his<br />

rent cost, his lease was up for renewal. Without any change to his<br />

rent and JD’s would have continued trading today. Fact, did the<br />

business and contract terms need overhauling, my snapshot of his<br />

business - absolutely.<br />

However, fate saw things different, as the lease renewal<br />

negotiations had broken down as the landlord was intending<br />

to nearly double the rent. He was blaming this increase on the<br />

escalating costs. On top of this increase the landlord was insisting<br />

he wanted to protect his risk and to add a six-month cash rent<br />

deposit, this just sealed the tough decision that had to be made.<br />

Whether you like it or not, this industry is in<br />

dire straits, it is fighting for its survival. I’ve<br />

just reported on one exceptional recovery<br />

business loved and respected by everyone<br />

within the industry, a 46-year-old company<br />

that no one had a bad word to say about.<br />

Before I conclude with a few words from Dave and Emma, I just<br />

want to reflect on the joint responsibilities of the operator, those<br />

government agencies, and their agents if they use them, and those<br />

we most commonly refer to as work providers.<br />

Whether you like it or not, this industry is in dire straits, it is<br />

fighting for its survival. I’ve just reported on one exceptional<br />

recovery business loved and respected by everyone within the<br />

industry, a 46-year-old company that no one had a bad word to<br />

say about. In the same week a second company in the south of the<br />

country, A1 recovery also went into voluntary receivership. A short<br />

conversation with their Operations Director sighted all the same<br />

types of issues causing their demise, but added the prospect of<br />

having to take additional vehicles on free storage because of the<br />

JD situation forced their hand, yes, they were being told they had<br />

to take some of the vehicles from JD’s. It’s time for this industry to<br />

act before it’s too late.<br />

Duty of care is not just about your responsibilities regarding<br />

health and safety, that is just the place in business the term<br />

regularly fits. There is also a duty to ensure you are trading solvent<br />

and issuing contracts knowing they are too financially onerous,<br />

should be frowned upon, especially if they are indirectly a<br />

Government contract.<br />

What I experienced first-hand when I visited JD’s on the 11th<br />

August was outrageous and the actions of one of the agents Dave<br />

and his staff were dealing with needs reporting to the financial<br />

conduct authority, because a Government Agency or it’s agent<br />

should not be allowed to conduct business in that way.<br />

Down from my box at Speakers Corner, Dave and Emma<br />

wanted to finish this with a few words. “To the industry and to the<br />

friendships made and industry colleagues alike, but most recently,<br />

Guy and Mike Morgan and the Midhurst Engineering family, James<br />

Spearing, J & A <strong>Recovery</strong> Chertsey, they have all been incredibly<br />

supportive in these difficult times.<br />

My Family, Emma, daughter Sherrie and my son Lewis who is<br />

inspirational, along with other family members who continue<br />

to support us, my sister Sue, and of course my Mum and Dad<br />

for everything they did to establish the business and devote so<br />

much of their lives to JD <strong>Recovery</strong>, I’m so proud of them. Yourself<br />

Derek and the recovery industry family across the nation who had<br />

nothing but respect and praise for JD’S .<br />

A message of real appreciation must go to my staff, all of which<br />

put in all the hours and sacrifices, you were all an absolute credit<br />

to the company and the industry.<br />

The final meeting with my staff was oh so difficult, but also the<br />

meeting I had with Derek, I was nervous and at the same time<br />

anxious, as he is a very good friend of mine and such a widely<br />

respected person within the recovery industry, I just knew this had<br />

to be reported in <strong>Professional</strong> <strong>Recovery</strong> Magazine, I do hope it<br />

helps in the long run.<br />

I have one final thing to say, and I’m sorry but it’s not nice. “JD’s<br />

was the longest standing operator working for Surrey Police, 43<br />

years and Hampshire Police 25 years. Both relationships started<br />

long before Baily Toon and AADL came along mascaraing as the<br />

Messiah. It just goes to show how valued we are today, as I have<br />

not had a single call, or acknowledgment for the services we have<br />

provided over those combined 68 years, disappointed, if not<br />

discussed”.<br />

The 2022 Tow Show<br />

Exhibitor update<br />

With Nick Phipps<br />

It’s another really positive announcement for this year’s show that we will be<br />

welcoming another brand-new exhibitor and a returning exhibitor to the TIC.<br />

Autotech Training who will be in Hall 1, and then our good friends from<br />

Rotronics BMS back with us in Hall 2 for the 2022 event.<br />

This will take the total of new exhibitors who will be in attendance at this<br />

year’s show to 19, and we hope our visitors will find the products and services<br />

that will be displayed by all our new exhibitors of interest, and potentially of<br />

benefit for their businesses.<br />

Autotech Training makes TOW<br />

Show debut in a bid to support<br />

HGV sector upskilling<br />

Autotech Training is delighted<br />

to announce that it will be<br />

exhibiting at the 2022 Tow<br />

Show for the first time. Showcasing<br />

its entire training offering, Autotech<br />

Training will demonstrate to<br />

visitors how they can upskill their<br />

workforce to future proof their<br />

businesses and meet demand.<br />

Building upon its reputation<br />

within the automotive aftermarket Autotech Training increased its<br />

offering earlier this year to meet the needs of the HGV sector.<br />

Suffering from a technical skills shortage which goes beyond a lack<br />

of drivers, the HGV sector is witnessing a lack of vital roles including<br />

mechanics and technicians. Couple this with the fast paced adoption<br />

of new vehicle technologies unless training and upskilling measures<br />

are swiftly implemented the skills gap will continue to increase.<br />

One of the biggest disruptions to the sector is the increase of<br />

electric/hybrid vehicles. With all new heavy goods vehicles in<br />

the UK set to be zero-emission by 2040, training is essential to not<br />

only ensure that these vehicles can be maintained efficiently but to<br />

safeguard anyone working around or on them. Greater awareness<br />

on the benefits and challenges of EVs is also needed to ensure that<br />

anyone towing or fitting a tow bar can do so skilfully and safely.<br />

Autotech Training offer six training courses dedicated to the HGV<br />

sector including IRTEC, REACT and IMI Levels 1-3 electric/hybrid<br />

heavy vehicle training.<br />

Tow Show update: Key Sponsor<br />

announcement for CMG<br />

It’s great news for the show being able to welcome CMG as<br />

the official sponsor of this year’s ‘Towby’s Telford Social’ being<br />

staged on Wednesday the 28th of September in The Ironbridge<br />

Suite.<br />

Everyone at the Tow Show would like to extend our sincere<br />

thanks to Jason Brice, Mike Cowan, and Tracy Jennings at CMG<br />

for their ever-present support.<br />

This is such positive news for the event and this year’s show<br />

that we can announce CMG as a sponsor partner.<br />

WEDNESDAY 28 TH SEPTEMBER 2022<br />

Back in May 2022 Burke Bros took delivery of a MAN 12.250<br />

fitted with a Boniface VLA which was part of a larger order<br />

for vehicles to be delivered throughout 2022 and 2023.<br />

Burke Bros have been using the VLA product for a number of<br />

years and it has proven itself time and time again to be a very<br />

robust and reliable product.<br />

This latest Volvo FL 14.250 is fitted with a Boniface 6t capacity<br />

aluminium VLA slidebed and 2t capacity 2nd car lift and has<br />

been built to the usual high specification and high standard<br />

that Burke Bros have come to expect from Boniface. The vehicle<br />

includes numerous options including side winching points on the<br />

bed, a low winching facility allowing casualties to be winched onto<br />

the 2nd car lift, polished stainless steel locker boxes, wrecker kit with<br />

cones, full radio remote control for the bed and winch, several sets<br />

of strobe lights including ones on the tilt frame which become the<br />

highest point when the bed is deployed and many other accessories<br />

specified by Sam Burke that make the vehicle unique to Burke Bros.<br />

The VLA’s rugged aluminum deck provides resistance from rust and<br />

corrosion keeping the vehicle looking great for much longer than a<br />

steel bed. It also provides both increased payload and fuel economy.<br />

A standard feature of the VLA is the manually operated sliding 8,000lb<br />

hydraulic winch allowing the operator to easily maintain a straight pull<br />

on the casualty’s towing eye. The 2t capacity 2nd car lift is adjustable<br />

for both width and tyre size which means the operator can move<br />

anything from the smallest car to the largest van. Like most Boniface<br />

slide beds, the subframe and tilt frame is galvanized to help prolong<br />

equipment life and the body is fitted with LED beacon, work lights<br />

and marker lights - all of which will provide years of reliable service.<br />

As well as the radio remote control, the VLA also comes with manual<br />

lever controls which are housed in a control locker at the rear which<br />

provide a valuable backup in case the remote is lost or damaged.<br />

Operation of the bed is via a single push button or lever control<br />

making the product very user friendly and easy to use.<br />

We are sure Sam’s new vehicle will provide years of reliable service<br />

and help promote a good image for his company whilst it’s out on<br />

the road. Boniface look forward to delivering more vehicles through<br />

the rest of 2022 and into 2023.<br />

VLA different to other low approach slide beds give them a call on<br />

AVROUPDATE<br />

Operators have<br />

had enough<br />

We have recently been made aware<br />

of a forthcoming tender for a police<br />

contract which, frankly, beggars<br />

belief. It’s just the latest insult to the<br />

vehicle recovery industry in<br />

our opinion.<br />

by AVRO Business Consultant<br />

Graham Steedman<br />

It includes a penalty clause of £100 per<br />

minute ‘service disruption fee’ where<br />

targeted attendance times are breached<br />

and a £50 charge to the operator each time<br />

they decline a request for service, as well as<br />

a £45 management fee for the privilege.<br />

Really?<br />

On top of that, operators are contending<br />

with considerable increases in their<br />

operating costs right across the board, not<br />

least on fuel, insurance and wages. Insurance<br />

costs are higher for police contractors due<br />

to the ever-present risk of criminal damage<br />

to premises, equipment and staff.<br />

Who writes this stuff? Do they not read<br />

the news? Are they not aware of the average<br />

waiting times for ambulances?<br />

Having spoken to many operators since<br />

this was made public, they are also in<br />

disbelief. Surely no business is going to sign<br />

up to this? It will certainly set a dangerous<br />

precedent.<br />

Our industry is waiting with bated breath<br />

for the outcome of the Statutory Fees<br />

review, however it would appear that the<br />

vultures are circling and Chief Constables,<br />

alongside Police and Crime Commissioners<br />

and managing agents have sharpened their<br />

pencils naively believing our industry can<br />

afford an increase in these management<br />

fees and other charges once we get the<br />

expected uplift in Statutory Fees.<br />

The Chief Constable is accountable to<br />

the law for the exercise of police powers<br />

and to the PCC for the delivery of efficient<br />

force. However, he appears to firmly believe<br />

that the <strong>Recovery</strong> industry should subsidize<br />

his revenue by providing free services to his<br />

Police forces by providing as we all know,<br />

FREE STORAGE, FREE SOCO FACILITIES,<br />

UPLIFT OF ELECTRIC SCOOTERS AND<br />

BICYCLES INVOLVED IN FATAL ACCIDENTS<br />

etc, and any other inanimate object they<br />

believe might be worth examining, and<br />

to top it all they want an extortionate<br />

management fee and a share of the salvage.<br />

This industry has had enough of the<br />

strongarm cloak and dagger tactics many<br />

inflict on operators. It’s a blatant disregard of<br />

the honest, hardworking, operator working<br />

all hours to scrape a living together. This,<br />

together with work providers short selling<br />

our services to the general motoring public,<br />

has got to stop. They need to recognise the<br />

value the independent operator brings to<br />

their business - the vast majority of whom<br />

would be unable to provide a service to<br />

their customers were it not for them. This<br />

is especially so in the case of commercial<br />

roadside assistance and recovery.<br />

Operators have had enough. It is painfully<br />

obvious from the growing list of businesses<br />

that are being forced to close or change<br />

their business model things need to change.<br />

If the industry is to survive, we need to<br />

put an end to the fat cats and middlemen<br />

creaming off the revenue for their own<br />

benefit. This however will require a collective<br />

effort by the industry to stand together and<br />

say “no, enough is enough”.<br />

New addition to<br />

Tears <strong>Recovery</strong> fleet<br />

Along with a Bosch service centre<br />

based in Sutton Bridge, Tears<br />

<strong>Recovery</strong> provide 24/7 recovery<br />

services from depots across the whole of<br />

East Anglia working for all the major motoring<br />

organisations.<br />

Tears have been trading for some 25<br />

years now and throughout this time have<br />

continued to invest in the business. The<br />

fleet is varied, some 36 vehicles ranging<br />

from specialist plant equipment to roadside<br />

service vans – and everything in between.<br />

Tears perfected their specification to fit<br />

with their operational requirements years<br />

ago, and now, in the 7 T range it’s simply a<br />

call to J&J Conversions Ltd.<br />

The latest F1 Low Approach slidebed to<br />

join the fleet is pretty much a mirror image<br />

of each of the preceding vehicles (four<br />

lockers, wreckers kit, strobes etc) but on<br />

Iveco’s newest model; Daily Crew cab with<br />

rear air suspension, Evolution pack and<br />

additional LED head lamps.<br />

J&J, as always, keen to keep up with<br />

technological developments have now<br />

incorporated the Traffic Clear touch screen<br />

control as standard on all new builds along<br />

with design upgrades on a lighter weight<br />

stainless steel flyer, new rollers, new lockers<br />

and redesigned ramp storage whilst keeping<br />

the fundamentals like fully galvanising both sub and<br />

tilt frames which are intrinsic to the longevity and<br />

residual value of all J&J vehicles.<br />

IVRUPDATE<br />

BACK TO BASICS – Suitable PPE<br />

Mention Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and most vehicle<br />

recovery operators will be able to reference the Personal<br />

Protective Equipment at Work Regulation 1992 (1993 in<br />

Northern Ireland). Under this regulation, to protect against health<br />

and safety risks, considerations should initially be given to engineering<br />

controls and safe systems of work. PPE should follow on from those<br />

considerations as a last resort. In other words, wearing a high visibility<br />

vest does not protect at the roadside if technicians are ignoring all<br />

other safety guidance given through their IVR training or otherwise.<br />

“Every employer shall ensure that suitable personal protective<br />

equipment is provided to his employees who may be exposed to a risk<br />

to their health or safety while at work except where and to the extent<br />

that such risk has been adequately controlled by other means which<br />

are equally or more effective.”<br />

This one sentence in the PPE regulations holds a lot of information<br />

but the takeaways are that:<br />

l The employer is to provide PPE to his/her employees (if it reduces<br />

risk).<br />

l That the PPE needs to be suitable i.e. is appropriate for the risks,<br />

considers the state of health of the technician wearing it, fits correctly,<br />

is practicable for the risk and does not increase overall risk and meets<br />

industry standards.<br />

Perhaps not so well known is that The Provision and Use of<br />

Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), dovetails with the PPE<br />

regulations, suitability and maintenance being some of the areas of<br />

overlap. Readers may think PUWER is only applicable to machinery but<br />

the scope of ‘work equipment’ is extremely wide. It covers almost any<br />

equipment used at work - the “Personal Protective Equipment” title<br />

means PUWER and all that that brings cannot be ignored.<br />

PUWER states that the PPE shall:<br />

Be suitable for the purpose provided<br />

(“Suitable” means suitable in any respect which it is reasonably<br />

foreseeable will affect the health or safety of any person).<br />

Recently the UK endured 40-degree heat, technicians were<br />

observed wearing padded high visibility reflective jackets in order<br />

to comply with BS EN ISO 20471 class 3 PPE, inadvertently putting<br />

themselves at a health risk of overheating in the process. This EN<br />

standard is the level required for anyone working on motorways<br />

or dual carriageways and can comprise of a combination of long<br />

sleeves and trousers, with minimum areas of high visibility material<br />

and reflective banding. There are lightweight non padded versions of<br />

this clothing which are suitable for the warmer months, which would<br />

mitigate the risk of heat stroke for operators at this time of year.<br />

Good toe protection when working roadside is also a key PPE<br />

requirement. There have been reports of technicians driving in regular<br />

footwear and then changing into their hard toed boots at the roadside<br />

because their hard toed boots are too restrictive to drive in or are<br />

not comfortable to wear all day. The SURVIVE Best Practice Guidelines<br />

outline that time spent working at the roadside represents risk for<br />

technicians, customers and other road users. This additional roadside<br />

activity brings unnecessary risk, which can be resolved with wellfitting,<br />

comfortable, regulation compliant footwear.<br />

Both regulations state that the employer shall ensure that:<br />

PPE is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and<br />

in good repair<br />

they do not inadvertently adversely affect the material, causing dulling<br />

or damage to the reflective tape.<br />

l Inspected for deterioration at suitable intervals. Issues should be<br />

remedied or equipment replaced in good time - so it continues to<br />

provide good reflective properties, safety features or comfort.<br />

Both regulations state that:<br />

All persons who use work equipment should have received adequate<br />

instruction and training for the purposes of health and safety<br />

A technician should:<br />

l Understand their responsibilities associated with their PPE.<br />

l Understand keeping it clean (if it is their responsibility to do so), in<br />

an efficient state, efficient working order and good repair, following the<br />

manufacturers guidelines.<br />

l Understand how to use it. i.e. an unfastened high visibility jacket or<br />

unfastened footwear are not fully effective. Also that wearing a Class<br />

2 Jacket or top, combined with a Class 1 Trouser is equal to BS EN ISO<br />

20471 Class 3.<br />

l Understand any risks associated with PPE and the risks in not using it.<br />

l Select the right PPE according to the working conditions/risks. Nitrile<br />

Gloves have their place in preserving evidence but are of no benefit<br />

when handling winch ropes for example.<br />

The PPE Regulations, PUWER, the SURVIVE Best Practice Guidelines,<br />

PAS 43, NHSS17/17B and the IVR VR modules are all aligned when<br />

it comes to PPE. There is a lot to take into consideration before<br />

purchasing or providing PPE to your staff, even the size of your logo on a<br />

high visibility jacket can affect whether it is compliant or not, so ensure<br />

you purchase from a reputable company that properly understands the<br />

PPE and manufacturing regulations. The value of PPE cannot be fully<br />

measured however, the lack of it is obvious.<br />

It is not just a case of the employer providing and maintaining<br />

suitable PPE or monitoring staff use post training but as with all health<br />

and safety, there is a duty of care on the employee to wear it as they<br />

have been trained to do and to immediately report issues to their<br />

employer for timely repair or replacement. Give your PPE the attention<br />

it deserves.<br />

PPE features in all IVR VR modules from VR01 induction module<br />

through to both heavy and light modules and electric vehicle training.<br />

Contact an IVR approved training provider for further details of courses<br />

www.theivrgroup.com/training/find-training-provider or contact the<br />

IVR office on 01895 436426.<br />

PPE should be:<br />

l Clean - so it continues to provide high visibility properties and<br />

so that its effectiveness is not affected. Manufacturers of specialist<br />

clothing have to guarantee that their garments are still reflective after<br />

a minimum of 25 washes in order to meet BS EN ISO 20471, in order to<br />

ensure the wearer is protected at night. Operators should take care to<br />

follow the manufacturers guidelines when washing garments to ensure<br />

IVRUPDATE<br />

RED’s guide to<br />

selecting recovery<br />

clothing…<br />

l What minimum standard do my drivers have to comply with?<br />

When operating by the side of a road you must have clothing that<br />

meets the ISO EN20471 standard. Clothing that meets this standard<br />

will have a logo and a “Class”<br />

grading printed on the label inside.<br />

If working on roads travelling<br />

over 50 mph operators must meet<br />

the highest level, Class 3, grading of<br />

the ISO EN20471 standard.<br />

Interestingly Class 3 can be<br />

achieved by wearing multiple items<br />

that meet the standard which<br />

means you can combine a “Class<br />

2” jacket plus “Class 1” trousers<br />

and equal Class 3. Alternatively<br />

purchase a Class 3 jacket, top or<br />

long sleeved waist coat to ensure your drivers all meet Class 3.<br />

WATCH OUT – because the standard is based on the area of<br />

material which is high vis and reflective – short sleeves, or small<br />

sizes may not meet the Class you think they are – always check the<br />

individual garment labels.<br />

l In addition to meeting the EN standard – please remember best<br />

practice is to always outline the whole body with high visibility<br />

material for the daytime and reflective tape for the night time. This<br />

means day or night your operators will be seen easily by other road<br />

users. Shoulders, cuffs, ankles and the main trunk of the body should<br />

always be defined with both fluorescent & reflective materials.<br />

l Waterproof or workwear?<br />

Depending on the time of year and weather conditions please<br />

choose suitable fabric finishes for your PPE. Wet weather clothing<br />

meets the standard of EN 343.<br />

This standard has two values<br />

you can refer to. The first value<br />

indicates the overall product’s<br />

waterproofness, while the<br />

second value refers to its overall<br />

breathability. Both values are<br />

assessed on a scale of 1–3, with 3<br />

being the highest value. Choose a<br />

Class 3/3 to stay very dry, but have<br />

a comfortable garment to work in.<br />

Insulation – some garments<br />

are insulated meaning they keep<br />

the wearer warm in the winter – this clothing is not suitable for the<br />

warmer months. Non insulated waterproof clothing is also available<br />

and can be worn in throughout the year by adding extra layers<br />

underneath during the colder seasons.<br />

l Overalls or Trousers and Jackets?<br />

Depending on the type of work your operators are doing you may<br />

choose to select overalls rather than a jacket and trousers. Overalls<br />

or bib and brace trousers are useful if you are working on vehicles.<br />

They help avoid exposure and can be very warm and dry if you go for<br />

the waterproof and insulated options. Jackets and trousers are very<br />

practical, versatile and can be very smart.<br />

l Corporate Identity<br />

Badging your clothing with your company logo can help you promote<br />

a professional appearance.<br />

l Don’t forget<br />

Head protection – bump caps, hard hats or full helmets are available.<br />

Make sure these are comfortable or operators will avoid putting them<br />

on. PAS 43 requires a minimum standard of BS EN 397 – but many<br />

helmets available will exceed this requirement.<br />

Eye wear – for protection against flying debris and fluid spray.<br />

Some hard hats and helmets come with full face protection –<br />

ideal for dealing with heavy recovery. PAS 43 requires a minimum<br />

protection to the standard BS EN 166.<br />

Gloves – look for hardwearing but soft materials to protect against<br />

rough edges and wire ropes, but allow the operator to move their<br />

hands and perform more intricate jobs. Insulated gloves are also<br />

recommended for working with EV’s. PAS 43 ask gloves to conform to<br />

BS EN 388.<br />

Ear Defenders – these may be required in certain situations,<br />

certainly prolonged periods of exposure to busy roads or loud<br />

machinery. PAS 43 require a minimum standard BS EN 352-1.<br />

Footwear – this should meet the minimum standard BS EN ISO<br />

20345 according to PAS43. Ensure boots are comfortable for the<br />

individual wearer – as ill-fitting boots will cause discomfort and<br />

ultimately the operator will not wear them and risk injury.<br />

NEWS<br />

INDUSTRY<br />

STANDARDS<br />

Having read your PAS43 editorial in the previous issue,<br />

I felt I had to write in and make a few comments, as I<br />

think writer missed a few key points.<br />

The article outlined the structure that there should<br />

be behind a professional recovery operator and<br />

incorrectly portrayed it as fact rather than the pretence<br />

it’s now become. A much more worthy article would<br />

have highlighted the vast differences in the standards<br />

in PAS43 accredited operators and what is acceptable<br />

to one auditor and not another. We all know this is<br />

simply because Publicly Available Specification 43 is a<br />

specification and not a standard which in turn leads<br />

to the readers own interpretation. How can it be that<br />

one VRO can meet (and hopefully exceed) PAS43 while<br />

another with the same certification has glaring nonconformances<br />

year on year?<br />

To rub salt further into the wound and a different<br />

tangent, there are several work providers who send<br />

their work as a first choice to VRO’s who haven’t even<br />

heard of PAS43! This only stings those who are trying to<br />

do things in the right way with the cost and effort that’s<br />

entailed.<br />

Please do not be mistaken in thinking that I am elitist<br />

as I am most definitely not. I began my recovery career<br />

as many did and still do, with a van and trailer, long<br />

before the Focus Group and PAS43 was ever thought<br />

about. That was however 33 years ago and although<br />

PAS43 has been good for the industry which your<br />

article headlines, it could have been so much better.<br />

The present box ticking system of guidance notes<br />

based around a specification results in suggestion (the<br />

operator should carry cones etc) and not a mandatory<br />

standard within the specification scope.<br />

When I think of the hours that so many operators<br />

spent on what has now become a watered down and<br />

near worthless specification it frankly makes me feel<br />

quite despondent. Nevertheless, hope is still there in the<br />

guise of NHSS17/17B as a true and recognised standard<br />

looking directly at our industry’s (PAS43) operating<br />

specification before removing the ambiguity. This forces<br />

those loose clauses into being mandatory and insists<br />

our industry consistently operates at the highest of<br />

standards.<br />

The result is a true standard, not out of reach for all<br />

operators, big or small.<br />

Copart announces the acquisition<br />

of Hills Salvage & Recycling<br />

Copart UK Ltd, the UK’s leading vehicle remarketing and recycling company,<br />

is formally announcing the acquisition of Hills Salvage and Recycling - The<br />

Green Parts Specialist. The acquisition includes three sites, the Skelsmerdale<br />

HQ 25 acre site, a site acquired recently by Hills in Scotland and a<br />

Gloucestershire parts hub. All assets including the Hills UK transporter fleet<br />

and specialist technology systems will be included in the sale.<br />

Copart Inc, from its inception, has been an innovative company working<br />

in continuous collaboration with its customers on both the seller and buyer<br />

side. When our customers asked us to expand into the green parts market<br />

we were keen to meet their needs to help facilitate transparency and<br />

provenance in the repair cycle.<br />

The Hill’s philosophy is totally aligned to Copart culture and we are<br />

delighted that Ian, Lucy and their team will continue to run this new<br />

partnership venture. Over the years Hills has had many approaches to sell<br />

the business but chose Copart as they felt this was the best way to secure<br />

future growth within a company that shares the enthusiasm and passion for<br />

customers as they do.<br />

Copart’s UK CEO Jane Pocock commented on the deal: “I am super<br />

excited to welcome the Hills team to the Copart family and looking forward<br />

to extending our range of services that give our sellers the very best choice<br />

around their Cat S and Cat B damaged vehicles and engaging with the body<br />

shop networks to provide parts with provenance.”<br />

“When you combine the strength of our salvage solutions, both in the<br />

volume and capability sense, with Hills’ world class green parts service and<br />

progressive inventory platform, we really can offer an unrivalled nationwide<br />

service. In addition to that, our huge buyer base will benefit as we will provide<br />

a sustainable and viable ‘parts shop’ offering them access to both the largest<br />

stock of vehicles, and now green parts.“<br />

“Looking forward Copart will operate the business as a complimentary<br />

entity, retaining all existing employees and expertise, supplementary to our<br />

salvage and automotive businesses. We also recognise the close and very<br />

valuable relationships Hills have with their own existing customers and fully<br />

intend to ensure these remain ‘as is’ and managed by the team of experts at<br />

Hills.”<br />

Ian Hills, Managing Director of Hills said: “Hills Salvage & Recycling and The<br />

Green Parts Specialist are recognised leaders in the UK recycling industry.<br />

Combining our parts solution with the infrastructure and vehicle inventory<br />

of Copart opens up a tremendous opportunity to offer an unparalleled<br />

service to the UK insurance and repair industry through our circular recycling<br />

process”<br />

“The Green Parts and recycling industry has experienced unprecedented<br />

growth in recent years and much of that has been through the work we<br />

have carried out to change the perception of our industry, highlighting the<br />

commercial and environmental opportunity that Green Parts can offer.<br />

Today, the insurance and collision repair industry appetite for Green Parts<br />

is unwavering as we experience record numbers of green parts requests<br />

against a global backdrop of OEM parts shortages and rising inflation.”<br />

“Save for rebranding to The Green Parts Specialist, I don’t expect any<br />

changes about how we do things at Hills. Our strategic goal has always been<br />

to offer the UK’s largest inventory of quality assured Green Parts on the shelf,<br />

available for next day delivery. Combining our infrastructure with Copart has<br />

simply accelerated that process for which our customers will benefit hugely.”<br />

“Hills Salvage & Recycling was founded and continues to operate as a<br />

family run business with the customer at the heart of our solution. We have<br />

come a long way on a journey that began some<br />

40 years ago as a small body shop, started by<br />

my parents Jeff & Dorothy Hill. The credit for<br />

our success should be theirs and our incredible<br />

team who have all worked tirelessly to build<br />

the salvage and recycling business from the<br />

ground up resulting in what you see today. I am<br />

extremely proud of the business and the team<br />

we have created and they continue to support<br />

myself and Lucy to work with Jane at Copart to<br />

meet our future ambitions.”<br />

AFF – Auto Fuel Fix<br />

There has been a notable downturn in the volume of fuel drains<br />

since the start of the pandemic; during the beginning of 2020,<br />

the first lockdowns created a massive reduction in work across<br />

the industry. There was a healthy spike when restrictions were<br />

lifted, but we were knocked back again during the next set of<br />

lockdowns in 2021. We were very relieved when the vaccination<br />

program was declared a success and life appeared to be<br />

returning to normal, only then to be hit with a fuel shortage in the<br />

tail end of 2021, creating a big dip in traffic volumes, and work.<br />

Once through this hoop, we were ready for the big bounce<br />

back in 2022, but shortly into the year fuel prices were up almost<br />

50% - this did not encourage drivers in the UK to get back on the<br />

road! Despite all these barriers, AFF has continued to provide<br />

service for our highly valued customers, and we remain grateful<br />

to be trading, when many others have not been able to carry on.<br />

FOCUS ON<br />

Crane and Rotator<br />

Southern <strong>Recovery</strong> Services<br />

Paul Attwater from Southern <strong>Recovery</strong> Services commented:<br />

“We have one Syren Rotator built by Steve Young based in<br />

Stourbridge. One of the first five axle rotators to be built in<br />

England in 2000. With two 20 ton drag winches and two ten<br />

ton winches on the booms rated at 140 ton meter and fully<br />

proportional radio control. We have done loads jobs in the last<br />

few years with the rotator. We have had the low loader trailer<br />

for four years. It was built by Faymonville based in Belgium &<br />

Luxemburg and supplied by John Green from Rydam Universal.<br />

“The Lodar trailer is designed for moving anything from a<br />

dust cart to a six-axle mobile crane. Axles are Pendles, with all<br />

hydraulic suspension twin winches. The trailer has a hydraulic<br />

neck with remote steering. The tractor unit is four axle DAF 150<br />

ton. It’s the first trailer of that design in the UK to that spec for<br />

moving cranes.”<br />

Alan Sewell Breakdown & <strong>Recovery</strong><br />

Alan Sewell, director of Alan Sewell Ltd, originally started out on a<br />

self-employed basis concentrating on agricultural machinery. After<br />

recognizing the potential of David Metcalfe, he decided to take him<br />

in as his partner. The companies first major recovery truck was<br />

their own conversion of a Crusader Eight, which went under the<br />

name of ‘Fearnought Retriever’.<br />

From the humblest of beginnings, the growing company evolved<br />

by 1994 to a situation whereby a personally designed purpose built<br />

garage was constructed to house a workshop staffed by highly<br />

trained HGV mechanics and recovery operator personnel with a<br />

diverse and wide ranging wealth of experience.<br />

On the recovery side the fleet is complimented by rough terrain<br />

forklifts one of which is a five tonne lifting machine with a hydraulic<br />

winch and a 4 wheel drive County tractor and winch plus a custom<br />

built 120 tonne GTW Scania.<br />

The company prides itself on the fact that their ability to adapt<br />

in an ever changing industry has been the key to their success and<br />

look forward to the future and the new challenges that it will bring.<br />

Cannon Commercials Ltd<br />

The advent of electro-hydraulic braking<br />

systems has meant that some motor<br />

manufacturers are specifying a need for<br />

pressure brake bleeders that can operate at a<br />

higher pressure than required with conventional<br />

systems. This new unit from Laser Tools (part<br />

number 8395), has been developed to meet this<br />

requirement as well as maintain the ability to be<br />

adjusted for lower pressure applications.<br />

Originally developed by Laser Tools for OEM<br />

customers, this 12V powered brake bleeder has<br />

an adjustable fluid pressure output from zero to<br />

3.5 bar (50psi). It is powered from the vehicle<br />

battery via the 12V auxiliary socket or a suitable<br />

12V power source. For maximum portability, the<br />

unit has been designed to be used with a 5-litre<br />

brake fluid container which is also included.<br />

Designed and manufactured in Germany, the<br />

brake bleeder features a durable, brake fluid safe<br />

paint finish with clearly marked switches and dial.<br />

Safe for use with DOT 3, 4, 4+ and DOT 5.1<br />

brake fluids. The unit shuts off automatically<br />

when empty. Supplied with euro cap adaptor.<br />

Additional adaptors available, Laser Part<br />

Nos: 7101 (master cylinder cap kit), 5700<br />

(for Ford Fiesta), 6036 (universal), 7516<br />
