Heavy Duty Towing

Heavy-duty towing encompasses all vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) exceeding 26,000 pounds, typically featuring multiple axles underneath. At our service, we have the specialized trucks capable of handling such heavy loads with ease.

Heavy-duty towing, also known as heavy wrecker towing, refers to the specialized towing service provided for vehicles that exceed a GVWR of 26,000 pounds and are situated on a roadway, level shoulder, or other accessible level surface. This type of towing requires the use of heavy wreckers, which are powerful tow trucks designed specifically to handle the weight and size of these larger vehicles. With our fleet of heavy wreckers, we can confidently handle the most challenging heavy-duty towing tasks.

When a vehicle surpasses the 26,000-pound GVWR threshold and requires towing, our heavy wreckers are promptly dispatched to the scene. Equipped with increased towing capacity and robust features, these heavy wreckers can easily accommodate the weight and dimensions of heavy vehicles. They possess the necessary power and specialized equipment to tackle the unique challenges associated with towing such substantial loads.

Our primary focus in heavy wrecker towing is to relocate vehicles situated on roadways, level shoulders, or other accessible level surfaces. Whether it’s a disabled truck, a commercial vehicle, or a large SUV, our heavy wreckers are fully equipped to tow these vehicles safely and securely to their intended destination. The strength and stability of our heavy-duty tow trucks ensure that the towing process is conducted without causing any additional damage to the vehicle or compromising the safety of other road users.

To handle the specific demands of towing heavier vehicles, our heavy wreckers are equipped with advanced features and specialized equipment. These enhancements may include heavy-duty winches, reinforced frames, extended boom capabilities, and stabilizing outriggers. With these tools at our disposal, we can provide secure towing for heavy vehicles, even under challenging conditions such as steep inclines or uneven terrain.

Moreover, our heavy wrecker towing service extends to the recovery of vehicles involved in accidents or those in precarious situations. When a heavy vehicle is overturned, stuck in a ditch, or trapped in a challenging location, our heavy wreckers are deployed to facilitate the recovery process. Our skilled operators can safely and efficiently recover the vehicle, bringing it back to an upright position or a more accessible location.

Safety is of paramount importance to us in heavy wrecker towing. Our trained and experienced operators handle the heavy wreckers with the utmost care, strictly adhering to safety protocols. They meticulously assess the situation, determine the appropriate towing techniques, and utilize specialized rigging and towing attachments to securely lift and tow the heavy vehicle. This level of expertise and attention to safety minimize the risk of accidents or further damage during the towing operation.

In summary, heavy-duty towing encompasses vehicles with a GVWR of over 26,000 pounds, often featuring multiple axles underneath. At our service, we are fully equipped with the right trucks capable of handling such heavy loads. Heavy wrecker towing plays a vital role in safely and efficiently moving these larger vehicles, ensuring the smooth flow of traffic. With our advanced features and skilled operators, we provide a reliable and secure solution for heavy-duty towing and recovery operations on roadways, level shoulders, or accessible level surfaces.

“My partner slid off of an exit ramp near Story City. Patrick was out there in 20 minutes and got the car out quickly and expertly out of a drainage ditch. He even followed us up to the local gas station to make sure that the car still drove without any problems. I’m incredibly satisfied with the service — fair price, kind people, and expert service!”
