Types of Tow Trucks

Imagine you’re cruising down the road, enjoying your favorite song, when all of a sudden, your car might break down due to some tires and battery and you are stuck in the middle of nowhere, these are the times you will need a tow truck to rescue your car from the roadside to near the garage or junk yard. So it is important to get familiar with the different types of tow trucks and their uses. 

 4 Different types of tow trucks

1) Flatbed Tow Truck

The flat bed tow trucks, often referred to as “rollback” tow trucks, are the most common trucks you see. These trucks come with a flatbed at the back that can be hydraulically inclined to ground level, allowing the vehicle to be either driven or onto it. Once the vehicle is safely aboard, the bed is moved back to its flat position. 

These trucks are especially for long-distance flat bed towing and for moving damaged vehicles that can’t be safely moved using traditional methods. These trucks offer a gentle towing method, making them perfect for luxury or classic cars that need a little extra care.

2) Hook and Chain Tow Trucks

Hook and Chain Tow Trucks have been a traditional way of towing vehicles in the towing industry for many years. The main component of a hook-and-chain tow truck is, as the name suggests, a hook and chain. This hook is attached to the tow truck and then connected to the vehicle being towed using the chain. This advanced design allows people to quickly disable the vehicle from its current spot  and tow it to the desired location.

3) Integrated Tow Trucks

Integrated tow trucks are among the most powerful vehicles in the towing industry. These trucks combine the features of a regular tow truck and a flatbed truck, making them capable of handling vehicles of various sizes, from cars to heavy-duty trucks. This tow truck has not only increased the efficiency of the towing process but has also enhanced safety during the scrap car removal process.

4) Wheel-lift Tow Trucks

Wheel-lift tow trucks, also known as boom trucks. These trucks are designed to lift the front wheels of a disabled vehicle off the ground, allowing it to be towed from one location to another. Unlike traditional flat bed tow trucks, we offer quick and efficient wheel lift towing services without the need to load the entire vehicle onto the truck bed.
