About Us

Alan Sewell, director of Alan Sewell Ltd., originally started out on a self employed basis concentrating on agricultural machinery. After recognizing the potential of David Metcalfe, he decided to take him in as his partner.

The companies first major recovery truck was their own conversion of a Crusader Eight, which went under the name of 'Fearnought Retriever'.

From the humblest of beginnings the growing company evolved by 1994 to a situation whereby a personally designed purpose built garage was constructed to house a workshop staffed by highly trained HGV mechanics and Recovery Operator personnel with a diverse and wide ranging wealth of experience.

On the recovery side the fleet is complimented by rough terrain forklifts one of which is a 5 tonne lifting machine with a hydraulic winch and a 4 wheel drive County tractor and winch plus a custom built 120 tonne GTW Scania.

The company prides itself on the fact that their ability to adapt in an ever changing industry has been the key to their success and look forward to the future and the new challenges that it will bring.


Thanks very much for your help ... the quick service and help from your staff was second to none.
