  • J&J ConversionsShowing how it’s done

How refreshing to see a well written, unbiased magazine, that shows the recovery industry how it really is.

This has been a long time coming and hopefully it will stay independent, and away from some of the people, politics and propaganda that is published every month in other publications.

Long may it continue!

Steve Scott, Technical Services Fleet Engineer

A brilliant magazine to freshen up industry relevant publications. Interesting reading from all angles with superb journalism, professional photography and production values. Many hours spent in a happy place. Keep up the good work.
