staff   No. 1 Recovery was founded by Edward Pipon in 1991.  Located in St Lawrence, Jersey, with 23 years experience in the business, our commitment to prompt service has stood the test of time.

We were delighted in the summer of 2013 to begin work on a purpose built facility at our St Lawrence base, due for completion summer 2014. 

We operate a 24 hour service 365 days of the year and currently have a fleet of 11 specialised towing and recovery vehicles.  Our reliability, promptness and professionalism has earned us an Island-wide reputation for dependability.

From passenger cars and motorcycles to heavy towing and recovery, you can be sure that No.1 Recovery is well equipped and manned to get the job done.

ISO 9001 : 2010  and PAS43:2010 - UKAS

In 2003 No.1 Recovery became the first breakdown contractor outside of mainland Britain to be accredited to ISO 9001:2000 and PAS 43 

It was an International first, it is well recognised as being the bench mark for the breakdown industry. To make this possible various people and services had to be sourced from England as there were no facilities locally to assist with the various requirements such as LOLLER and PUWER regulations.
