There are a variety of towing methods for vehicles, but the two most common are flatbeds and wheel-lifts. There are a number of differences between these types of towing that make them uniquely suited for specific situations.
Flat Bed Towing
For long-distance towing, flatbed towing is the safest and most secure method to use. The vehicle is positioned securely on a flatbed truck with all of its wheels securely chained to the truck. This prevents extra stress and strain from being put on the towed vehicle’s front or rear wheels as can happen with some other types of towing. Some car manufacturers specify that this is the only way in which their vehicles can be towed safely without causing damage to the suspension design.
Wheel Lift Towing
Wheel lift towing is one of the most popular types of towing there is. It utilizes wheels being lifted off the ground only, and that can be done for both short distances as well as long ones. The advantage of wheel lift towing is that a vehicle can be quickly hooked up to a tow truck and moved to a repair shop or to a home garage without delay.
At Texans Crown Towing we have all the vehicles, equipment, and fully experienced staff to handle any type of towing you may need. Our operatives are well-trained & experienced in securing ANY type of vehicle to a car hauler or flatbed. For example, we can secure vehicles with air shocks and ride levelling systems to avoid any damage from the wheels being tied down. These types of vehicles must have each wheel secured independently to allow for the normal operation of the suspension as it is being driven.
