What is Wheel Lift Towing?
When the majority of people think about having Chicago Towing, the image most commonly pictured is wheel lift towing. This form of towing is done when either the rear or front wheels of the damaged vehicle are hooked to the tow truck, and lifted off the ground. This type of towing is great for short hauls that only require the vehicle to be taken a short distance to a repair shop or home. This is also the optimal way to move cars or lightweight trucks and vans.
What is Flatbed Towing?
There are times when wheel lift towing is not the ideal option for specific types of vehicles or vehicles in certain conditions. In these cases, the best option for hauling the vehicle from one location to another is a flatbed truck. Flatbed trucks are designed to haul larger vehicles, vehicles with no functioning tires, or vehicles that require all for tires to be up off the ground. This form of transporting vehicles is the ideal option for long-distance towing jobs.
Flatbed towing is used for a number of other reasons that include the weight, or the make and model of the vehicle. Vehicles transported by this mode are able to have each of their wheels secured, instead of the traditional method of chains placed on the front and rear of the vehicle. Further reasons people choose this mode of towing is the design of their vehicle requires not additional weight be put on one end of the vehicle, as happens with wheel lift towing.
