Shop for Heavy Rescue: 401 Merchandise to Support a Cause

All proceeds from the sales of our Heavy Rescue 401 merchandise will be used to support this initiative.

Heavy Rescue: 401 (produced by Great Pacific Media) focuses on a group of heavy recovery drivers working to keep traffic rolling on some of the busiest and most unforgiving roads on the planet. Up to 400,000 vehicles travel Ontario’s 400-series highways every day. The section of the 401 through Toronto is the busiest stretch of highway in the world. Highway 402 near Sarnia is an important link to the US Midwest, plagued by blinding lake effect snow squalls. These routes are lifelines for the nation’s industrial heartland and for thousands upon thousands of commuters. When disaster strikes on these roads, the pressure is on to get them cleared and reopened. Police and the Ministry of Transport depend on Southern Ontario’s heavy recovery operators. To keep closures to a minimum, crews often work just inches from open lanes and speeding traffic.

Heavy Rescue 401 airs on the Discovery Channel in Canada, on Netflix across 170 countries and on other channels such as the Weather Channel in parts of the United States.
Preferred Towing has been involved in the Heavy Rescue 401 series since its inception.

As a business and as a family we made a decision to be filmed as part of the series because we wanted to show the public the professional side of our industry and the challenges and the danger of working on the 400 series highways that we face on a day to day basis. We also are pretty proud to showcase our awesome city of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada to the world.

It was also important for us to use this opportunity to educate the public on the Slow Down Move Over Law that includes Tow Trucks. We want all tow operators to go home safely to their families at the end of each day.
We have found this to be an amazing experience, have met many great people and fostered some great relationships throughout this adventure.

We have enjoyed meeting fans of Heavy Rescue 401 in person, through email and through social media from all the corners of the world. They have helped to enrich this experience for us.
