Suburban Washed Down Creek

Towing Experts > Suburban Washed Down Creek
The Suburban drove off into a flood low water crossing about ¼ mile up the creek, killed the engine, got everybody out an on high ground when a rush of water took the Suburban down the creek, over 2 dams and came to stop against and partially under a golf cart bridge on the golf course. This happened about 2 weeks ago and the owner called Tommy of H&H Wrecker to get it out. Tommy looked at it and asked me to go look at it and figure out the best way to retrieve it. The creek and the right side of the creek belongs to the golf course and on the left side of the creek is high dollar homes. There were 3 different ways it could be done with various costs and liabilities associated with each. I advised the insurance adjuster of what I thought and left it up to them with the understanding that we would take it out by one of the three ways and they would release us of all liability. The adjuster called and said he had eliminated all but one option and the golf course and one property owner had agreed to cooperate. It was the hardest of the three options as we had to work the recovery in a very small area with almost no room. We first had move a telephone pole, then get the Suburban out from under the bridge and bring it up between a tree and rock wall without damaging either. We also had to minimize ground damage as much as possible. Lots of rigging and rerigging, the job was accomplished to everyone’s satisfaction.
