Flatbed towing might not be the most common type of towing, but it’s known to be the most secure secure. Most vehicles can be towed the normal way, with a 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 fine for cars that need to be transported short distances, but flatbed towing is perfect for all other towing situations in Garland.
Benefits of Flatbed Towing
Say you need towing because your car was involved in an accident, suffered from a flat tire, or broke down. None of these situations sound nice for a driver. If your vehicle was involved in an accident, your main goal is to get it to a repair shop without damages becoming more extensive. And, if you have a flat tire or your vehicle broke down, your main goal is to get your vehicle home or to a repair shop without incurring further damage.
Flatbed towing protects vehicles quite well. Essentially, a vehicle can be rolled onto a flatbed tow truck. If one or more tires is inoperable, flatbed trucks have electric cables to pull cars up onto the flatbed. Once aboard, the vehicle wil be secured in place. The members of the towing team will secure the vehicle to the flatbed. We’ve executed a flatbed tow hundreds of times so you can be at ease knowing that your vehicle is in great hands.
Flatbed tow trucks are unique with regards to their ability to incline, decline and twist to enable easy boarding. Unfortunately, vehicles can break down in the worst locations in terms of towing. They might be wedged in between cars or stuck in a parking garage. Therefore, the versatility of a flatbed tow truck simplifies the towing process. Accessibility is key for towing all kinds of vehicles, and it’s a feature included in a flatbed.
