Although we all reasonably expect tow trucks to tow coupes, sedans, and even SUVs, not a lot of people know that there are several types of big vehicles that can also be towed. In case you ever are in a pickle but have a bigger vehicle that’s left stranded on the side of the road, there’s still hope! Read on to discover 4 different types of big vehicles that can surprisingly be towed:
School buses, coach buses, and pretty much any other kind of bus out there can still be towed! While buses are large vehicles, heavy-duty tow trucks can often efficiently and safely haul these long, big vehicles to wherever they need to go in the case of a roadside emergency.
- Mobile Homes
Have you ever seen an entire home on a trailer? While it’s not very common, you may have seen it, and that’s because mobile homes can be towed with the use of heavy-duty wheel lifts, frame axle, and heavy-duty tow trucks! If you need to get your mobile home from point A to point B and aren’t sure how, don’t hesitate to call your local heavy-duty towing company for assistance.
- Garbage Trucks
Do you regularly see your garbage company come by in their huge trucks to collect your trash? While garbage trucks are enormous, heavy-duty tow trucks can be powerful enough to haul them in the case of an emergency! Towing companies often use underreach and wheel lifts to safely move these vehicles.
- Semi Tractor-trailers
Finally, semi tractor-trailers can be towed, too. Believe it or not, heavy-duty tow trucks and experienced professionals can carefully haul disabled semi tractor-trailers to safety with hook up equipment and the right safety precautions.
