Retrieving vehicles in difficult locations.

St. Louis Recovery Towing

Vehicle towing is always a tricky job, with plenty of variables to consider. However, some situations are more difficult or dangerous than others. When your car is in a difficult to access location, stuck in place, or turned over, recovery towing is needed.

At Platinum Towing & Transport, we offer professional recovery towing to St. Louis motorists. Our team handles the process from planning to drop off, ensuring you take on as little stress as possible.


What Is Recovery Towing?

Recovery towing is a term that covers any towing service where a vehicle needs to be recovered from a given location using special tools and equipment. In other words, the standard towing methods aren’t enough. This can happen when a car goes off road, ends up in a ditch or stream, rolls over, or is trapped in mud. 

When Is Recovery Towing Needed?

Traditional towing can accomplish a lot, even when a vehicle is partially stuck. However, it can’t do it all. St. Louis recovery towing is needed whenever traditional options don’t or won’t work. Our expert tow truck drivers will be able to assess your situation and determine if recovery towing is best. 

How to Handle Recovery Towing

As with any towing service, the first step is to ensure your safety and that of your passengers. You need to exercise your best judgment based on the situation. For example, if your car is in high water, leaving the vehicle may be essential. In other cases, it may be best to wait inside the car for emergency services. 

Once you have a safety plan, contact the police. In almost all cases, incidents leading to recovery towing are considered accidents by insurance providers and require a police report.

After the police indicate you can, call Platinum Towing & Transport for your St. Louis recovery tow. We will arrive quickly with the right equipment to recover your vehicle. From there, we will take it to the mechanic of your choosing.
