Here are different types everyone should be aware of.
A flatbed tow truck is utilized in flatbed towing. The truck’s flatbed is reduced to the ground. A hydraulic winch system raises the truck’s bed by dragging the car up. Before shipment, the truck bed is leveled after the car is on it, and the vehicle is safely chained down.
- Wheel Lift Towing Services
Wheel lifts can be used to pull the majority of compact cars and light trucks, but they can not be used to haul 4WD or all-wheel drive vehicles. Before the car’s drive wheels are raised, a yoke is put under each of them to tow the automobile on its non-drive wheels.
- Light and Medium Duty Towing Services
Breakdowns, flat batteries, lockouts, running out of fuel, or towing of small to medium-sized vehicles are typically categorized by firms as light or medium-duty towing services. The majority of compact automobiles, motorcycles, vans, and tiny vehicles can benefit from these services.
- Heavy Duty Towing Services
Wreckers or rotators are big recovery vehicles used in heavy-duty towing services. Large automobiles, tractors, trailers, big machinery, and much more can all be recovered by them. Large hydraulic winches and cords that are part of wreckers’ equipment can raise, haul, and even rotate huge automobiles.
- Closed Container Towing Services
The closed container with a truck is also used for towing and is one of the safest ways to tow vehicles in Oakland County. That is why this method is utilized chiefly for towing sports cars, expensive vehicles, vintage cars, and so on.
