Within 20 months two companies, Auto Rescue and Mike’s Towing were acquired to increase market share and growth. In January of 2011, the company was procured by a three-party partnership, with Ben Brits as the new managing member. The main service at this point was aimed at towing within the Greater Durban Metro, aided by a long distance auto carrier with a capacity of 40 to 50 vehicles per month between Durban and Johannesburg. As the demand for quick turn-around time increased, the auto carrier capacity expanded 8-fold over the next three years to 350 – 450 vehicles per month. The name “Intercity Towing” misrepresented the key focus of the business and so a new company called “Intercity Auto Movers” was created in parallel. Both companies operate in unison, with Intercity Towing CC mainly operating as a local towing company and Intercity Auto Movers (Pty) Ltd as a long haul auto carrier company.

Employees are encouraged not only to take ownership of any task allocated to them, but also to find opportunities to perform above and beyond the call of duty.
Drivers are selected and trained so that they can perform a broad scope of tasks, including driving, loading, strapping, forklift/machine operation, etc. This helps not only to improve availability of staff, allowing staff to take the necessary leave and to look after their personal well-being, but also to improve co-operation when teamwork is required.
Regular training is provided – both on individual level and in groups. This eliminates mistakes while simultaneously reducing turn-around time.
Drivers are issued with uniforms and safety gear to represent the company’s professional image. We want our drivers be presentable to any client
