4x4 Roadside Assistance

The main problem 4×4 drivers face when they break down, in addition to the inconvenience of not being able to complete their journey, is that they’re often stranded in a remote, inhospitable location. 

This can mean that conventional cars or trucks can’t come to the rescue, as the terrain is too challenging. It may also mean that help from other sources is unlikely, as 4×4 vehicles frequently operate off the beaten track.

OVR has invested heavily in high-grade, robust recovery vehicles that can cope with sand, mud, dirt and inclement weather. This means we can rescue you and your 4×4, no matter where you’ve ended up.

When Should I Call Outback Vehicle Recovery For Roadside Assist?

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Roadside Assistance Work?

Roadside assistance means that when you call us, we’ll come out to your location when you’ve broken down on the road. In most cases, we will try and get your vehicle started or repaired to continue on your onward journey. If we can’t fix the vehicle, we’ll take it and you to where you need to go, be that home, to a garage or elsewhere.

If you’ve got an engine problem, pull into a safe place if you possibly can and call us out.

My car is stuck in mud and sand in the middle of the night, what can I do?

Suppose you have adequate illumination to do so safely. In that case, you may be able to get moving by putting cardboard, the car mats, fabric, or something similar under the front of the stuck wheel(s), then, using low revs, attempt to move forward across the firmer surface the mats will provide.

For drivers who aren’t sure how deep the mud is around their vehicle or who can’t try using mats to gain some traction, we recommend getting to a place of safety (if you can leave the vehicle safely, do so) and then calling us out.

My car battery is flat, should I call roadside assist?

In a word, yes! Although you can start a car with jump leads, another vehicle is required, and you also need to be competent in using jump leads. If you call us out, we can be with you rapidly and get you started promptly.
