Eliot Colsten is used to getting people safely out of a tight spot; he’s been doing it for over a decade. The transition was a natural one when he decided to open Arizona Off Road Rescue and Towing a year ago. AZORR specializes in the recovery of all types of off-road vehicles including jeeps, dirt bikes, quads, trucks, and cars. The company is quickly becoming known throughout Arizona for its fair pricing and its professional recovery techniques.
Colsten says his customers can expect on-trail repairs and recovery provided by a highly-skilled team using the latest in equipment and technology. “I’ve been helping people for fifteen years and I wanted to take my passion and turn it into my business. For me, it’s not about the money it’s about getting people out of a bad situation.” The staff at Arizona Off Road Rescue and Towing prides itself on a rapid and safe response. If necessary, a crew member will travel ahead to the breakdown location to determine the best equipment needed. Repairs can be done on site by ASE certified off-road mechanics.
If a damaged or burned vehicle needs to be removed, the AZORR team provides both rescue and towing services while keeping any harm to the environment to a minimum. Services include replacing parts, changing tires, and transporting water or fuel. HAZMAT and EPA clean-up services are also offered.
The company has invested in major equipment purchases over the last several months to provide state-of-the-art property recovery. A recent acquisition is a boom for the firm’s Power Wagon. This allows the safe removal of a vehicle without additional damage. The new equipment tolerates a tongue weight of up to 3,000 pounds so that an UTV or quad can be physically picked up and towed instead of dragged from the scene.
The company is very focused on the safety of an individual in a crisis situation. After an off-road incident a person can be frightened and unsure of what to do. When AZORR team members respond to a call, they are also prepared to provide wilderness first aid should it be needed. Colsten is a wilderness first aid responder and both he and his staff will soon be EMT certified.
