Our roots in vehicle recovery in Newtown

RTC Recovery was formally founded in 2017 by Paul Holloway – But our roots go far further back.

Vehicle recovery has been the Holloway family business for a number of generations. Paul first learned the ins-and-outs of vehicle recovery in his friends family firm, Star Autos Recovery, before honing his technical knowledge with both further studies and a number of years as a sole trader.

Recovery has always been in Paul's family's blood, dating back to his grandfather helping tow barges along rivers with horses. 

With Paul's son and grandson now working with RTC Recovery, our family-run business spans four generations of experience and expertise – and we bring every ounce of it to every callout!

The RTC Recovery Values


One lesson we have learned over the years is that no two breakdowns are the same, and that one-size-fits-all solutions are going to overlook something.

Whether we need to go out of our way to take your vehicle home, drop you off at a train station or something else, RTC Recovery's more flexible approach to vehicle recoveries in Newtown and Shrewsbury looks after your peace of mind. 


Car troubles don't wait for convenient hours. RTC Recovery rises to the occasion by offering 24/7 availability throughout our catchment area, while aiming for a rapid response time of 45-60 minutes.

After all, the faster we can get to you the less your day-to-day life is disrupted.


Whether we're towing it to a garage or fixing it on the side of the road, at the end of the day we're dealing with your car.

We honour this by keeping you informed every step of the way with clear explanations, outlining the following steps based on our findings and updating you with new developments as soon as we hear them.

A huge thank you to you, Paul....

A huge thank you to you, Paul.

You came to rescue me today in Belle Vue within an hour and you were superb with everything. You took care of the traffic, the car, and you dropped-off the car at my chosen garage, whilst letting me get on with my day.

Your number will remain permanently on my phone. It is such a comfort knowing your RTC and your number.
