This is a compilation of recent recoveries I’ve done that I did not have enough footage for an entire video on its own. They range from a simple vehicle vehicle over the side recovery to a massive heavy duty burn job. Leave a comment to let me know which one was your favorite; I’ll be choosing 3 winners at random by the end of this week to give out cool limited Pepe’s swag!
UPDATE: Winners have been announced! Congrats to:
On June 24, 2019, I responded to a tractor trailer loaded with tires that overturned on the Harry Bridges off ramp in San Pedro. The company sent their own containers and crew to offload the tires, although they were only able to take 85-90% of the load. Once the scene was clear, recovery straps were rigged to the lift line and dual 15′ 1/2″ chains were rigged to the catch line. I used one of the auxiliary winches to help the tractor come over with the trailer, while a heavy wrecker was placed in the front to control the catch, then prepped for tow back to customer’s base.
Be sure to follow us on social media where I regularly post our work.

While there are many factors that play into the life of the economy, truck drivers are the heart and soul which keeps the blood pumping. According to the American Trucking Association, there are 3.5 million commercial truck drivers in the United States. Each and every day thousands of truck drivers are on the roads delivering the products we use, the food that we consume and the materials corporations utilize to build our infrastructures.
Of course, like anything else, trucks need maintenance. Somewhere every day there is a truck breaking down on the road and more often than not, with slim to no options available.
Hi, my name is Costas Themistocleous, and I am the founder and CEO of TruckER. I have been working in the commercial trucking industry for the last decade, moving freight, automobiles and commodities for consumers and corporations all throughout the United States and Canada. When a driver breaks down, it is not usually an easy task finding them service to get them back up and running. I think we can all relate to the frustrations of spending precious time searching the web and inaccurate directory services looking for the right service vendor at a reasonable cost.
TruckER is designed to help drivers find service fast and easy with the click of a button. Minimizing downtime and time consumed spent searching for an expert, willing and licensed service vendor to come and repair your rig.
Simply choose the breakdown category, answer a few simple questions, upload photos of the incident and hit “Find Service Now”
TruckER then utilizes advanced GPS technology to quickly pinpoint your exact breakdown location and instantly pings the 5 nearest service vendors who cater to your specific breakdown needs, displaying rates, ETA and availability. TruckER allows users to submit their breakdown into a 90 second auction style bidding system, allowing vendors to compete on your breakdown service, which can save you time and money. Upon accepting a vendors ETA and quote, a service ticket is generated and a chat window opens between you and the vendor, allowing further information and detail to be discussed. When service is completed, vendors can upload the invoice directly through TruckER, and both user and vendor can rate their experience with one another.
Truck drivers keep our world in motion and without them, we’d be a lot less connected. We here at TruckER understand and appreciate the importance of commercial truck drivers and what they do for our everyday lives. Our mission here is simple.. That is to keep you up and running with minimal downtime and cost effective service solutions provided by expert, willing and genuine service vendors.
TruckER will be available through Apple’s App Store on iOS devices, the Google Play Store on Android devices and through the World Wide Web. When your truck goes down and you need service fast, TruckER is here to assist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Buy Commercial Truck Tires online nationwide
Low Prices, Free Shipping, No Taxes, F.E.T. included
Go to our website:
If you own one or more commercial trucks that see regular use, then you know that tires aren’t cheap, and these types of costs add up over time. Ordering tires in bulk is a great solution for fleet owners and independent drivers alike because the more tires you buy, the more money you save.
If you are going to place a larger order, you are going to want to be certain that you will not pay an arm and a leg for shipping. Rest assured, all of your tires will be shipped directly to you within 2 to 3 business days, and you will not have to spend even a single cent on shipping costs.
As an added perk, you will save even more money when you place your next order because you will not need to pay any taxes on the tires that you buy either. It is because of this that you can be certain that you are always getting the lowest price possible on your commercial truck tires.
After years of searching I came across this DC 103 in Maryland for a fair price and it seemed as though most everything was there so a deal was made and she hitched a ride west to a new home where I eventually plan on restoring it. right off of the trailer the rear brakes appear to be hung up so the komatsu will help with the unloading! Subscribe to see move videos in the future from this project, hopefully next time she will be freed up and running!
