Car Recovery Service

Stranded with a breakdown? Don’t worry, car recovery is near you.

Duggan Recovery officer breakdown recovery and towing service for people who have been involved in accidents or need emergency car repairs.

The number of cars on the road has exploded over recent decades which unfortunately offers all the more chance for a car to break down and be stranded. Drivers often find themselves stuck in the middle of nowhere and on the side of the road hoping somebody will come by and offer help. This can be both worrying and frustrating as there can be little worse than having your car immobile when you have a need to go somewhere or make an important meeting.

As an experienced car towing and breakdown recovery service, we know just how frustrating it can be to find yourself with a broken-down car, in bad weather, late at night (for example).  If you find yourself on the roadside asking “is there a tow truck near me” then you want to have the number of a reliable, local recovery service to call.

We understand the difficulties and that’s why we aim to reach you in the fastest possible time with a goal of getting to you within 30 minutes. While we can’t guarantee this, we have improved our procedures and call out management to be as slick and problem-free as possible. We will arrive at your car with an aim to recover you to a location of your choice while ensuring your vehicle is towed securely and safely to your wanted destination.

If you are unfortunate enough to find your car in a breakdown situation or you need your car moved for another reason, then your first step is to contact us. Once we hear from you we will respond quickly, aiming to reach your car in the fastest time. Once we’re with you we will assess your situation and any damage to your car to work out the safest approach to recovering your vehicle and yourself.

you may need your vehicle to your home or it may make more sense to recover you directly to a garage that can give you an idea of what repairs are needed or work to get you rapidly back on the road.
