Understanding the Different Types of Towing Trucks

Have you ever wondered why there are different types of tow trucks? Let's explore a guide to various towing vehicles and their distinct uses.

Flatbed Tow Trucks

The preferred choice for most situations due to their safety and efficiency. Flatbed tow trucks are suitable for transporting all types of vehicles.

Hook and Chain Tow Trucks

This old-school style is primarily used for junk vehicles or wrecked cars, but it can scratch cars during the towing process.

Wheel-Lift Tow Trucks

A modern alternative to hook and chain tow trucks, the wheel-lift method uses a metal yoke and causes less damage to vehicles during towing.

Integrated Tow Trucks

Reserved for heavy-duty purposes, integrated tow trucks are typically employed for transporting buses or other large vehicles.
