Bendet has recently become the proud owner’s of what was previously Roga’s Breakdown, prompting a name change to Bendet Plant and Towing. We are excited about this new venture and the opportunity to serve our clients even better by adding breakdown assistance and towing services to our list of services.

Breakdown Meaning

A breakdown refers to a situation where your vehicle (a car or truck, or construction vehicle) cannot drive further.

This may include, but is not limited to, you having engine trouble, your vehicle being involved in a collision or a flat tyre and no spare.

Our Breakdown Services

Nothing puts a spanner in the wheels of a productive week like a broken-down vehicle. A broken-down vehicle causes stress, loss of productivity and often unexpected expenses.

At Bendet Plant and Towing, we recognize this and aim to reduce the stress of a breakdown as much as we can. With vehicles stationed in Paulpietersburg and Piet Retief, we aim to arrive at the scene of the breakdown as quickly as possible while keeping the towing costs to our clients as low as possible.

We will load your vehicle onto one of our towing trucks and transport it to where you need it (which is usually your home or business base or a car service provider or mechanical).

Our Breakdown Services Equipment

Our vehicle fleet includes the following machines to assist with breakdown services and towing services:

  • 2 x 12 ton 9m length rollbacks
  • 1 x 8 ton rollback

We can thus load any size vehicle and transport it to where you need to it be, while making the service more cost efficient depending on which size vehicle you have.


Save our number

The best way to make a breakdown more bearable is to be prepared. We recommend saving our number (Gunther Hedder: 083 407 6175) on your phone as “Breakdown Services” or “Towing.” That way, should you or one of your employees experience an unfortunate breakdown, you can get in contact with us quickly and we can assist you as soon as possible.

Moving containers

In addition to being able to two different sized vehicles, we are also able to transport containers with our rollbacks.

We own a variety of vehicles to assist you with any breakdown.


Our breakdown service costs depend on the size of vehicle to be towed and the distance it must be towed for. To get a quote for a specific breakdown service requirement, please contact us.

In case of a breakdown, or for lowbed truck hire queries, please call Gunther Hedder on 083 407 6175.

The time taken for one of your vehicles to reach the breakdown site depends on how far away the breakdown is from either Piet Retief or Paulpietersburg and how busy our work schedule is. However, we always strive to reach your breakdown as soon as possible.

We will travel to wherever our client needs us to be.

According to the 1st for Women website, the first thing you should do in the case of a motor vehicle collision is to stop and call for help. Stop, switch on your hazard lights and climb out of your car if it is safe to do so. Then call an ambulance and the police if passengers, drivers or pedestrians are injured.
