M8 Recovery is a family run business, founded in 2000 by Alex Mcmanus, Jnr, M.I.V.R., which became a limited company in 2006.

The company headquarters are in Hillington, Glasgow, the former site of Renault Trucks, so it is well equipped and has purpose built workshops and generous storage facilities for heavy and light commercial vehicles.

Over the years it has progressed to become one of Scotland's largest trailer and recovery businesses.

It is ideally situated close to the M8 motorway and Glasgow Airport.  M8 provides service to several motor clubs such as Green Flag and FMG Support for which we are local agents.

We also have many local heavy and light commercial vehicle dealership contracts, the biggest being Glasgow City Council, one of the largest councils in Scotland.

We are also members of IFRS (International Federation of Recovery Specialists).  M8 Recovery fields a 30+ fleet of all ranges and employe almost 40 staff who all work hard to keep the business running smoothly and efficiently.

M8 Recovery has been recognised for outstanding customer service and satisfaction.

Our fleet of tow trucks cover Central Scotland and surrounding areas providing a safe and professional recovery service when you need it.

Our fleet ranges from service vans, slide beds, spec lifts, medium and full range of heavy recovery vehicles including our low loaders.

Customers can reach us 24/7 365 days of the year through our professional call centre

M8 Recovery also deals with private individuals that may require their own vehicles transporting.  This may be a classic car, a vehicle that has no tax or MOT or a vehicle that does not run and may need winching on.
