It’s almost guaranteed that at some point in your life your vehicle is going to break down and you’re gonna need a towing service. At Towing Service Evansville we got your back and you’re broke down car. In this article we’re going to explain four different types of towing vehicles and how they are used.
The first type of truck we’re gonna talk about is a flatbed tow truck. These trucks are adequately named flat bed because the bed of the truck is just as it says flat. They are also one of the most commonly used tow trucks. The reason for this is because of the simplicity. All you have to do to use flatbed tow truck is pool or drive the vehicle being towed onto the bed. Once the vehicle being towed is on the flatbed it is anchored down securing the vehicle. Once the vehicle is secured it is one of the easiest and safest ways to tow another vehicle. One downside of a flatbed tow truck is that it has a lower weight carrying capacity then the next truck we’re gonna talk about called an integrated tow truck.
And integrated tow truck is one that is integrated with equipment that can deal with the big boy toys. That includes buses, semi tractor trailers, other tow trucks, and many other rigs. These are usually reserved for commercial vehicles.
The third one would be one called Hook and Chain. Just as the name implies it is a hook on the end of a chain that is hooked up to the vehicle that is being towed. Most of the time this tow truck is not used. The equipment of tow and chain is outdated. It really puts a lot of stress on the bumper and can damage 4 wheel drives as well.
The last truck is kind of like the hook and chain, but it lifts part of the towed vehicle up. It picks the towed vehicle up by the front end or back end depending on what type of vehicle it is and pulls it on down the road. Simple and not too expensive and is widely used.
That sums up the different trucks that we are going to go over. What is on most peoples mind that gets a tow is please get my vehicle safely from point a to point b without damage and for a good price. Even at midnight or 2am the thought remains the same. That is why our service is fast, affordable, and we get the job done with the right equipment.
