Flatbed towing allows us to tow your vehicle to safety by minimizing any damage. When your vehicle is on our flatbed it is not at risk of rocks and other debris that may damage the paint and possibly crack your windows. As opposed to being dragged, your vehicle is lifted and transported without touching the ground. If you have a broken axle, this is practically the only way to tow it. Flatbed towing is a safer and more convenient way to tow. If you own luxury vehicle, you will prefer this method because there is no risk of your car bumper colliding into the truck.
Benefits of Flatbed Towing
With flatbed towing there is no damage to your tires or bumper. The entire vehicle is transported on a metal bed to your desired destination. With traditional towing, one end of the vehicle is hoisted while the other two wheels are left on the ground for support. If the tow operator encounters a speed bump or pothole, your bumper can impact the tow truck. Flatbed towing mitigates damage to the transmission, engine and ignition. There are times when a vehicle may sway during traditional towing. When your vehicle is secured and strapped to our flatbed truck any danger to pedestrians or passing cars decreases dramatically.
The last thing you want is to have your Porsche dragged through the streets with small rocks and other road debris popping up from behind the tow truck, dinging your expensive paint finish. We know how much time and money you spend keeping your baby clean. These small pebbles have been known to crack windshields. To avoid the drama, we use our flatbed tow trucks to transport your vehicle home or to a choice mechanic. Flatbed towing is our bread and butter. We been doing this for over 20 years and are versed in handling a variety of luxury vehicles. You car is safe in our hands.
