It’s easy to overlook the difference between towing and recovery services because it seems like the services offered fall under the same umbrella. However, while towing and recovery services often go hand-in-hand, they have their fair share of differences as well.
What is Towing?
If your car breaks down in the middle of the road, for whatever reason, you may need towing services. It can be hazardous to conduct repairs on the side of the road, especially if your car broke down because it ran out of gas, so you would need vehicle towing. This process is usually very straightforward. Vehicle towing equipment consists of a tow truck and a flatbed to hook up your vehicle, starting the towing process.
What Are Vehicle Recovery Services?
Common mechanical issues such as brake failure, faulty engines, or tire blowouts are stressful enough. Unfortunately, a simple towing service will not suffice. That’s where vehicle recovery services come in. Before towing begins, your vehicle would need to be recovered from whatever position it was in first and foremost before having it towed to the shop. Because recovering vehicles when they are stuck on the side of the road can be extremely arduous, specialized recovery vehicles and equipment are used.
What Is The Difference Between Towing And Recovery Services?
Traditional towing services can be done on vehicles that have broken down due to a lack of fuel, flat tire, dead battery, and in some cases, inclement weather. Suppose you have come across a more serious mechanical problem while driving a heavy-duty vehicle. In that case, you may need recovery services to help your vehicle get back to its original state.
