Flatbed towing may not be the most common form of towing available, but it’s known to be the most safe. Most vehicles can be towed the normal way: tow anchor attached to the tow hitch or chassis of a vehicle with rear wheels in motion as it’s being towed. The normal works just fine for smaller cars and shorter distances, but flatbed towing is perfect for all other towing situations in Frisco, TX.
Benefits of Flatbed Towing
Say you need a tow because your car was involved in an accident, suffered a flat tire, or broke down in the middle of the road. None of these occurrences are pleasant for a driver. If your vehicle was involved in an accident, then the main goal is to get it to a repair shop without incurring further damage. If you have a flat tire or your car broke down, your top priority is to get the vehicle to your destination without it incurring bodily damage.
Flatbed towing secures vehicles quite well. Essentially, a vehicle can be rolled onto flatbed. If one or more tires is immobile, flatbeds have electric cables to pull cars aboard. Once it’s aboard, the vehicle will be secured in place. The members of the tow team will secure the vehicle. They’ve probably completed a flatbed numerous times so you should be in great hands.
Flatbeds are unique with regards to their ability to incline, decline and twist in order to enable the easy boarding of a vehicle. Unfortunately, vehicles can break down in the worst locations for towing purposes, whether they’re wedged in between cars or stuck in a parking garage. Therefore, the versatility of a flatbed tow truck simplifies the towing process in these situations. Accessibility is crucial for towing all types of vehicles. It’s a feature check marked for a flatbed tow truck.
Flatbed towing is best for:
Believe it or not, flatbed tow trucks are perfect for towing trucks. Trucks, especially newer models, are rarely towed the normal way. In fact, trucks more often tow other vehicles than get towed themselves. Heavy-duty vehicles are in much better care when towed by a flatbed. A professional towing company will know which type of tow truck is necessary for a given situation. All you have to do is tell them what type of vehicle you have and they’ll be on their way.
Additionally, flatbed tow trucks help with all-wheel vehicles. Regular tow trucks risk damaging the transmission of all-wheel vehicles. With all four wheels off the ground during a flatbed tow, neither damage to the engine nor overall wear and tear will be a factor. Vehicles like U-Hauls and RVs also benefit from flatbed towing.
