Rice Bros. Trucking is pleased to offer a roadside recovery service for large commercial trucks or equipment. This type of service is often needed because of the Alberta environment and the weather systems that can occur in Alberta. Let’s describe the winter weather in the Canadian prairies as ‘harsh’. Anyone who has had the opportunity to drive on prairie roads during the winter months can easily recall the dangerous conditions including icy roads, blinding snowstorms, heavy fog and freezing-cold temperatures that can change within a very short time period. Any or all of these situations can create dangerous driving conditions and, at times, unexpected accidents could occur. Even the best driver, when faced with horrific road conditions, may find themselves in an undesired or unexpected situation in which they require assistance. This is where Rice Bros. Trucking comes in.
A simple call to our Dispatch, Stacey Rice at 403-501-8556, can have an immediate response with a winch truck, equipped with a 40-ton winch and possibly a trailer, if needed, on the way to pull your truck or equipment into a safe location. Let’s get that truck or equipment off the road and back on its way to your company for repair or storage. Rice Bros. Trucking is available for roadside assistance for heavy, commercial trucks at any hour of the day. After all, no one knows when this type of accident may occur.
Remember, if a truck or any equipment in your fleet has gone down due to weather, mechanical breakdowns or other problems, call Rice Bros. Trucking. We will recover and tow the truck or equipment to a safe location.
Stuck and Tow
Hey, this is Alberta! We have mud, lots of it, on the prairies, at certain times of the year. We have slushy conditions, marshy conditions and other land situations that cause trucks or heavy equipment to get stuck on location or on the way to a location. If a large commercial truck or piece of equipment is stuck on location, we can tow it to a safe or dry location.
Perhaps an accident has occurred and a stuck and tow is required for a truck that has suffered a roll-over or is in a ditch; any of these circumstances should result in a call to Rice Bros. Trucking to help you free that truck or equipment.
