Is A Winch Out The Same Thing As A Recovery?
Not usually. Typically a winch out is provided when the vehicle needs assistance to get back to a paved or solid surface from a reasonably accessible location. Recovery is typically when the vehicle is not easily accessed and cannot be extricated by simply pulling it to a paved or solid surface with the winch cable. An example of a recovery would be that the vehicle has overturned and has to be up-righted before it can be winched out or it has slid down a steep embankment. A recovery will also be more expensive since more time, special equipment, tools, and a different tow truck may have to be used.
If you are unsure of what type of service you need, provide as much general information as possible for the Dispatch Service Coordinator to assist to accurately determine your needs.
If you feel that you are in immediate danger or unsure of your surroundings, dial 911 immediately.
