Three Types of Towing Services

Flatbed Towing: The Safeguard for Your Vehicle

Flatbed towing is synonymous with safety and versatility in vehicle transportation. This method involves placing your vehicle on a flat platform, ensuring it's completely elevated off the ground. Ideal for luxury vehicles, all-wheel drive systems, and cars that have suffered extensive damage, flatbed towing eliminates any contact with the road, thereby preventing further wear and tear. It's the preferred choice for transporting high-value automobiles and ensuring damage-free towing over long distances.

Wheel-Lift Towing: Cost-Effective and Reliable

Wheel-lift towing modernizes the traditional hook-and-chain approach by using a metal yoke to lift the vehicle by its tires, allowing either the front or rear wheels to remain on the ground. This method is particularly cost-effective for short-distance towing and is best suited for two-wheel drive vehicles. Wheel-lift towing minimizes the risk of transmission damage, making it a reliable and economical towing solution for those looking to transport their vehicle safely over shorter distances.

Heavy-Duty Towing: For the Heaviest Loads

When it comes to towing large vehicles such as buses, semi-trucks, or motorhomes, heavy-duty towing is indispensable. Our heavy-duty tow trucks are equipped with powerful winches and booms that can manage significant weights and sizes. This service is crucial for the recovery of large vehicles, ensuring safe and efficient transport regardless of the vehicle's dimensions or weight. Heavy-duty towing is the go-to solution for semi-truck towing, large vehicle recovery, and managing challenging recoveries in demanding conditions.
