Heavy-duty vehicle towing requires expertise and skills to ensure the job is done well and the vehicle suffers no damage during transportation. So, if your RV has broken down and your tractor has gotten stuck somewhere on the property, don’t hesitate to call the emergency towing services for help.

To help you understand the complexities of heavy duty-towing, we’ve put together some common FAQs about our towing equipment and process.

Here’s what you need to know:

How Can I Prepare My Vehicle For Heavy-Duty Towing Services

This is one of the most common questions we get for our towing services. So if your jeep, SUV, or trailer has broken down, try to ensure it’s out of the way of the passing traffic. If you’re not in a safe spot on the road, try placing cones around the vehicle and turning on your hazard lights. Other than that, there’s not much you can do except wait for your local towing services.

In a few moments, your towing service will arrive and tow your vehicle or equipment using specialized equipment. If you attempt to do this yourself, you may damage your vehicle.

What Type Of Towing Equipment Do We Use?

We use powerful equipment, winches, and pulleys for large and oversized automobiles. The vehicles are hauled up onto flatbed tow trucks and secured with pins, straps, and chains.

What Techniques Do We Use To Load The Equipment

Many vehicles can be easily loaded up onto the flatbed tow truck. However, for oversized vehicles, like motor homes, buses, and jeeps, we need to use a chain system, a hook, and a wheel lift. In cases where the vehicle has rolled over onto its side and is too heavy to lift, we place inflatable tubes under the vehicle to put it upright and get it ready to load onto the heavy-duty tow truck.
