There are many types of organisations that carry out the recovery of vehicles in Londonderry including cars, vans, lorries and trucks and provide 24 hour recovery service, however they can be divided into two distinct areas: Recovery Operators (who undertake the recovery) and Motoring Organisations who in most cases are Insurance Companies.
Motoring organisations—or as they are often known, ‘The Clubs’—are organisations to which the vehicle’s driver will belong. They may have made a conscious effort to do this, or they may have got the membership with their new vehicle, through a company scheme, or purchased with an insurance policy known as breakdown cover.
In the event that a member of the public does not have a “club” membership, the police or Motorway Agency can arrange recovery of the vehicle at what is called an “Owner’s Request” and they will arrange for help to attend with a recovery truck.
Recovery operators in Londonderry are the people who undertake the recovery and in most cases are mechanics too with a 24 hour car garage and recovery 24/7. They are known by different names around the world, including ‘breakdown mechanic,’ ‘tow men’ and ‘recovery drivers’. Some are the people used by the motoring organisations to rescue their members. A small percentage will be on the payroll of the motoring organisation and will work exclusively for them. Examples are the companies used by the AA, RAC and Mondial in the England. Most 24 hour recovery service operators in Londonderry, however, work for privately owned companies or are individuals. They can do large volumes of work for some of the motoring organisations, but they will normally also do work for the public. In other parts, the percentage of this ‘private’ work is low due to the high profiles of the motoring organisations. Of course some will never do work for the motoring organisations, preferring to work just for their own customers. In parts of Europe and America, motoring organisations are still growing because of the huge growth in cars and huge demand for 24 hour towing service . Their motorways (highways) are huge and stretch over vast areas of land without stops thus 24 hour towing services plus accident and recovery is required.
Although there have always been auto repair shops and garages who towed or recovered any vehicles, it is only really in the last fifty years that vehicle recovery has become an industry distinct from the auto repair trade. Many are still involved in workshop repairs, but an increasing number, if they cannot repair the vehicle by the roadside, will transport it to another repairer. Although there are some large organisations operating hundreds of recovery vehicles, most are family businesses operating typically between 1 to 5 vehicles. Lastly there are operators like Highway Authorities and other government bodies, operators of local recovery schemes (contra flows, etc.) and large fleet operators who recover their own vehicles.
