Recovery Vehicle Trucks For Sale

Recovery vehicles have a part to play in many organisations, whether as a means of providing roadside assistance during breakdowns or to help remove damaged or abandoned vehicles in extreme circumstances. And you can choose from a broad selection of used recovery vehicles right here, with different makes, models and specifications available alongside one another for ease of comparison. Trucks of this kind can be relatively basic, offering a simple flatbed body at the rear to accommodate a single vehicle. They can also be bigger and better equipped and capable of transporting larger loads and more crew members across long distances, so the choice is yours.

The basic components of a recovery vehicle to consider are the cab, the body and the included equipment that will enable it to master its particular niche in the market. A day cab is common on smaller trucks, while crew cabs that seat up to six or even include sleeping quarters can be found on larger vehicles. There are also recovery vehicles which have been adapted from popular panel van platforms which offer manoeuvrability and efficiency.

Recovery TruckMany trucks of this type will combine a flatbed load area with a winch mechanism to allow cars and other equipment that needs to be transported to be hauled on to the recovery vehicle quickly and with little effort. The body should also come with ramps to facilitate loading, with beavertail ramps being common on many trucks in this category. Of course, some recovery vehicles will eschew the traditional load bed and instead have a smaller area at the rear dominated by a winch frame. This lets them lift the front end of a vehicle which needs to be towed while leaving its rear wheels in contact with the road, allowing for a quick pick-up and drop-off of cars which only need to be transported short distances. In essence, there is a recovery vehicle for every occasion.

Winches may be electric or hydraulically powered, with the former requiring less maintenance while the latter offers plenty of power. Some models may even come with integrated loader boom arms which mean that a ramp is not required to place a vehicle on the flatbed body. And irrespective of the included kit or the age of the truck, you should give a used recovery vehicle a thorough inspection to make sure everything is in working order and still has plenty of use left in it.

In addition to these key features, you can then select a recovery vehicle based on the other capabilities it offers. This may include jump-start equipment, a second deck to allow multiple vehicles to be transported at once, load areas for tool kits and all the working lights and beacons to ensure safety when it is being operated on busy roads. Good tyres, durable suspension and emission management systems on the exhaust to make the vehicle greener are also desirable, so coming up with a checklist of features you would like to find in a recovery vehicle is a good idea before you start your search.
