At Calderon Tow & Auto, we know how important it is that your vehicle is towed without sustaining any damage in the process. There are some occasions that require the use of a flatbed tow truck while are situations are more suited to a wheel lift tow truck to get your vehicle safely from point A to point B. Whether you need a tow from your home, mechanic auto repair shop or other destination, our flatbed and wheel lift tow trucks come equipped with the latest technology in towing services.
Benefits of Flatbed Towing
There are many advantages of flatbed towing over other towing methods. If your vehicle has sustained damage due to a car accident, the last thing you want is to sustain further damage during the towing process. Flatbed towing is by far the safest mode to have your vehicle transported as all 4 wheels are off the ground. Flatbed towing means your vehicle is unharmed over short or long distance tows.
Vehicles That Require a Flatbed Tow Truck
While some vehicles can be towed using other towing methods, some vehicles demand flatbed towing only such as:
– Exotic Vehicles
– Low Riding Vehicles
– Four Wheel/ All-Wheel Drive Vehicles
– Totaled Vehicles
– Classic/Antique Vehicles
– Vehicles Requiring Long Distance Towing
Advantages of Wheel Lift Towing
Much more sophisticated than the hook & chain method of old, wheel lift towing is a much better option that does not run the risk of damaging your vehicle during the towing process. Wheel lift towing utilizes chains that are wrapped around the axles of the vehicle attached to a metal yoke that safely lifts two wheels off the road as the vehicle is being towed. If your vehicle is in a tight spot such as a parking spot, this towing method is easier and more convenient than alternatives.
How to Know If Your Vehicle Can Be Towed with a Wheel Lift Tow Truck
Not all vehicles can be towed using wheel lift tow truck. For example, a four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle can be extensively damaged if all four wheels aren’t lifted off the ground during the towing process. Further, wheel lift towing isn’t the best option for exotic or classic cars that you don’t want to worry about getting a rock chip or any other damage while being towed.
