If your car breaks down on the road and needs to be transported to a nearby auto repair shop or to your home, your best towing option is a flatbed tow truck. When it comes to flatbed towing
, Sarasota Towing is the number one choice. We understand the risk that comes with transporting your car and know how to handle it with care.
Here are a few good reasons to use a flatbed tow truck:
Less Risk Of Damage To Your Towed Car: Traditional hook and chain tow trucks will pull your broken down car with the front wheels hoisted off the ground. This method of towing puts your bumper, tires, and engine at further risk of damage — especially over rough or bumpy terrain. A flatbed truck, however, places all four wheels of your car on a flat surface, keeping it safe from damage during transportation.
tow truck Versatility: Unlike traditional tow trucks that are limited in the types of vehicles they can transport, flatbed tow trucks are versatile. They can load cars, SUVs, boats, and virtually anything that fits on the flatbed.
More Convenient Than Other Methods Of Towing: When using a dolly for towing, you will need to remove the drive shaft to avoid transmission damage, but you’re not required to do that if you’re using a flatbed tow truck. All you have to do is drive your car up the platform and firmly strap it in. If your car is immobile, you can still load it on the truck by using a winch.
