Semi Towing

When it comes to heavy-duty towing operations, one cannot overlook the significance of semi towing. Semis, also known as tractor-trailers or semi-trucks, are the backbone of the transportation industry, responsible for hauling large quantities of goods across long distances. As a specialized aspect of towing, semi towing requires expertise and precision, and at Central Iowa Towing, we have mastered the art of safely and efficiently towing these powerful vehicles.

The Power Unit of Heavy Duty Operations

Semi trucks, often referred to as the power unit of heavy-duty operations, are the workhorses of the transportation industry. With a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of over 26,000 pounds, these trucks are equipped with multiple axles, making them capable of carrying substantial loads. Due to their sheer size and weight, towing semis demands specialized equipment and a highly skilled team.

Accident Towing with Semis

Handling accident towing with semis is no easy task, and it requires a towing company with vast experience and a commitment to safety. At Central Iowa Towing, we understand the complexities involved in accident towing and have developed efficient procedures to handle such situations.

When a semi is involved in an accident, it can lead to traffic disruptions, pose safety hazards, and result in extensive damages. Our team of trained professionals responds promptly to accident scenes, equipped with the necessary tools and expertise to safely recover and tow the semi away from the incident site.

The Challenges of Semi Towing

Towing a semi is not as straightforward as towing a standard passenger vehicle. The weight distribution, size, and dimensions of a semi truck demand specialized equipment, such as heavy-duty wreckers and rotator cranes, to handle the job effectively. Additionally, the complexity of semi towing also extends to the cargo they carry, which may require careful handling and secure transport.

“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!”
