What Vehicles Require
That’s a good question. Flatbed towing is necessary when your regular tow truck just won’t do the trick. We’re not saying it isn’t possible to tow an all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive car, truck, or SUV with a traditional wrecker or tow truck, it is, but there is a better way.
To avoid damages to the transmission and drive-train, on most occasions it’s best to utilize the services of a flatbed tow truck, or car carrier, when towing all-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive vehicles.
A.E.R. Towing Services maintains a small fleet of rollbacks, as they are commonly referred to, for flatbed towing. Our towing equipment is comprised of the latest in technologically advanced car carrying systems to ensure that your vehicle remains damage-free during the loading, securing, and unloading process.
Flatbed Towing Services
The Superiority of Flatbed Towing
Flatbed towing is the most desired type of towing service today. Especially if your vehicle must be transported over a substantial distance. If your car, truck, van, or even motorcycle must be towed, due to engine repair issues, tires & wheels, or relocation, we suggest the use of a car carrying system like flatbed towing.
You don’t need to be a tow industry enthusiast to understand the advantages that utilizing a car carrier has when towing your car on a rollback. It’s easy to see that your vehicle, when towed in this manner, rides high and out of harm’s way. But what those outside the towing business may not appreciate is the ease of loading, coupled with the method of securing your towed car or truck to the bed for transport. Both of these ensure that your car will remain damage-free throughout transport.
Not All Flatbed Towing is The Same
If you’ve been on this planet for more than a couple of decades now, you know that not all products and services are homogenous. Meaning, not all towing companies are alike.
When it comes to providing towing services with the use of a flatbed or car carrier, as they are commonly referred to, not all towing companies are alike. Even though the equipment they use may be similar and the systems available, if used properly, will provide a damage-free solution to your vehicle towing needs, not every tow truck operator employs these systems in the right manner.
When loading and securing your vehicle to the bed of a car carrier, the tow truck operator should take care to employ the use of a 4 point tie-down system. And, depending upon the type of vehicle and the available transportation slots available, coupled with the type of wheels your vehicle has, soft straps may be required. Not all vehicles require soft straps but yours may, in order to avoid damages.
Whatever you want to call them, car carriers, rollbacks, or flatbed tow trucks, they can be used in a wide variety of applications and towing and transport situations. They can be used to move a motorcycle, a luxury car, or even transplant a garden shed from one location to another.
