Towing & Recovery Division

The Towing & Recovery Division (TRD) represents the interest of the towing industry in B.C., with volunteers serving on the ICBC liaison committee to rpovide input on policies relating to rates for towing and storage of vehicles with ICBC insurnace policies that have been involved in an accident. Another initiative resulted in a popular online training course about impound lot operations and how to dispose of abandoned vehicles. The TRD’s objective is to enhance, educate and promote operator safety and professionalism.
