We have partnered with various leading product manufacturers to bring our loyal customers a wide range of products covering the off road and recreational vehicle market.


Recovery boards have been getting off roaders out of trouble for centuries. From the days of horse-drawn buggies, wheeled vehicles have got themselves stuck and attempting to use tree branches, timber or rocks to recover. WWII and the introduction of the Willies Jeep and Land Rover vehicles saw the development of different forms of aids to assist in recovery of vehicles and to bridge creeks and crevices, such as sand ladders or punched steel tracks. The iconic Land Rover was often pictured with a set of steel tracks hanging off the side somewhere.

Thankfully, as forms of transport have improved, so too have the means of recovery. The advanced off-road vehicles available today means we can explore further off the beaten track and more people are taking advantage of weekends out and about. Today there are various forms of steel, timber, rubber and poly recovery ramps available offering a similar range of features. TRED sets itself apart due to ease of use and its specifically designed features. The two-in-one design of both a shovel and a heavy duty recovery ramp make TRED the ultimate “Total Recovery & Extraction Device”.
