One of the Safest Methods in Towing
Flatbed towing is one of the safest methods of towing. It is a bed on hydraulics which allows the vehicle to be driven up onto the flatbed or ramp, and then lowered horizontally. Because of its stability this method is highly recommended for long-distance transport. Flatbed tow truck can work on many types of vehicles including motorcycles, cars, classic or luxury vehicles, heavy duty vehicles and more.
Suitable for Various Vehicles and Situations
Flatbed towing is important for towing vehicles that are difficult to be lifted up. A flatbed tow truck can be used for moving vehicles of various types from one location to another. When the ramp or platform is lowered, the vehicle can be loaded on the ramp or platform. When placed in such position, a winch will then pull it up. Heavier vehicles or machinery will require more effort to be loaded up on to the ramp or platform.
Pulling a damaged vehicle up a flatbed can be relatively simple because all one has to do is drive the vehicle onto the platform and secure it tightly onto the flatbed with straps. However, other methods such as dolly towing may require to remove the drive shaft of a vehicle to avoid transmission damage. This will take more time and more work in completing the same task. However, other methods of towing will be more feasible and efficient depending on the circumstances.
When towing a vehicle using a flatbed, the wheels of the towed vehicle are lifted off from the ground. This limits any damages that may occur onto the towed vehicle. A flatbed tow truck is safer by offering fewer damage risks.
