Get to know Towing equipment

Posted on: June 20th, 2012 by towingwriter

 

It is wise for you to keep yourself informed about the type of towing equipment that most companies prefer to use in the event that you do find yourself stranded after your car has broken down or worse. Several towing companies use similar equipment to tow vehicles

Most towing companies utilize the same type of equipment for towing. Many companies try to get potential customers to believe that the equipment that they use is more specialized than others.  However, the truth of the matter is that there is limited equipment that is used by most towing companies, regardless of the cost. The most appropriate option for towing a vehicle is a flatbed truck. A flatbed tow truck is a truck with a flat bed trailer attached. The trailer is tilted and the car is dragged onto the trailer by a chain wench. The vehicle is chained safely and ready for transport.

Traditional tow trucks with a hook use a hook that is placed under the front of the car. The hook lifts the front wheels off the ground and at the same time the back wheels remain on the road. This type of tow truck is suitable for all two-wheeled vehicles but must never be used for all-wheeled or four-wheeled vehicles. For long distance towing, a number of companies favor the use of a covered trailer to tow a vehicle. This towing equipment keeps the vehicle safe from external damage on its long trip.

This information about the types of towing equipment used by most towing companies will ensure that you could make an knowledgeable choice regarding the towing company you select for your towing needs.
