The towing & roadside industry, much like any other industry, has those businesses that stand out as leaders, pioneers, and masters in their field. Two such groups in the Towing & Roadside arena are Firstroad and Help 24. Or shall we rather say WERE.
Yes, there have been some changes happening and through this has emerged a new, better, bigger, improved giant to roam the countryside. We are very pleased to announce officially that Firstroad and Help 24 have merged and joined forces giving rise to FIRST HELP. With these two greats of towing now joined, they will surely be a force to be reckoned with.
Having such great presence on the roads will allow FIRST HELP to minimise cars being towed by rogue towers in the event of an accident. It will enable FIRST HELP to offer quicker response times for breakdown tows. It will allow FIRST HELP to have more yards around Gauteng, keeping your cars secure, and decreasing travel times per tow which goes to quicker response times.
The joining of these two companies is a great achievement not only for the companies involved, but for the industry as a whole as well as the road user and the insurance carriers.
The experience that backs this new business is invaluable, with 2 Operational Directors, Clinton Spolander & Hennie Miller clocking up around 60 experience between the two of them. This is without mentioning their string innovative management team and the literally 100’s of drivers on the road delivering superior service to all their customers.
FIRST HELP – your first call for help
And the one call that counts

First Group and Help24 Spread Warmth this Mandela Day
First Assist, First Road and Help24 hit the streets to give back
Johannesburg, 18 July 2018 – Tow truck drivers of First Assist, First Road and Help24 took warmth to those in need this Mandela day, 18th July 2018. Together, they distributed three thousand new blankets to those on the streets in desperate need of respite from the cold and something warm to sleep with.
“We have gotten to know some of these people who are forced to live on the streets and it is always difficult to come to terms with how hard their lives are. That’s why this winter we got together and ordered three thousand new blankets to make a small difference around Gauteng and Pretoria. Seeing the joy and appreciation from every-one we met was an extremely humbling experience. We were all reminded how easy it is to make a difference in those who are less fortunate than us lives” Clinton Spolander – Director of First Road Emergency
The likes of Thomas who lives in a shack along President Fouche Drive; and Masesi from the Makause Squatter Camp and the children at Sinethemba Day Care in Primrose on the Eastrand; Soloman from Zeerust and Bramley who lives under the Gordon Road bridge in the Westrand; were all touched by “Firsttocare” and their passion to live by the words of Mandela “There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to helping other’s without expecting anything in return” – Nelson Mandela
