Heavy Duty Towing
If you own a heavy-duty vehicle or a fleet of heavy-duty vehicles, you may have required a tow before. When it comes to heavy-duty towing, often the vehicles being towed are an asset for a business and should be treated as such. Getting the right tow truck for the job and coupling it with the right kind of service will ensure that your asset is protected against unnecessary costs. Let us have a look at a few of the reasons that you should get the right tow for the job!
Which vehicles require heavy-duty towing?
There are many classifications of vehicles. Most of the vehicles that we commonly see on the road would not require heavy-duty towing and form part of light to medium duty towing. Vehicles that require a heavy-duty tow truck may include buses, trailers, construction vehicles, garbage trucks, and large delivery trucks. If you are unsure as to whether your vehicle forms part of heavy-duty towing, we recommend giving us a call and allowing us to assess your needs and advise on the best solution.
The benefit of getting the right tow
As we have mentioned, heavy-duty towing is generally required for commercial vehicles and should subsequently receive extra care to ensure that we protect our client’s investment. With this in mind, we ensure that we employ the best in the trade to conduct heavy duty tows, hold all the relevant insurance required, and keep our fleet in the best possible condition to protect your investment. Not only do we do the aforementioned; we also equip our technicians with a comprehensive set of guidelines that guarantee the best outcome for the tow being conducted. In working with a reputable towing company, you safeguard yourself against potential, unwanted costs to your business.
The hardware required
The hardware required to conduct a heavy-duty tow varies greatly, given the massive difference in challenges between heavy-duty tows and the other kinds of tows. A heavy-duty tow truck requires a few things, some of which are a twenty-five-ton boom lift, a winch, and a six-ton wheel lift. The engine of the tow truck will have to provide higher torque and horsepower than a standard tow truck and the chassis braking system must be able to handle a significantly higher load than others. In summary, a heavy-duty tow truck is specifically designed for the job on hand and will see to it that the job is done right!
