Towing Methods and Capabilities

When you’re shopping for tow trucks for sale, it’s important to consider what your needs are. Do you need to haul more than 10,000 pounds at a time? Do you need a flatbed tow truck or a pickup truck with two rows of seating? Consider the types of equipment or materials you need to tow and how you intend to tow them – for example, there are three different ways to tow vehicles:

  • Flatbed towing
  • Wheel lift towing
  • Hook and chain towing

Flatbed towing requires a flatbed tow truck to place the vehicle on, while the other two options can be done with a light-duty pickup truck. With wheel lift towing, your towing equipment will pull the front end of the vehicle you’re hauling up into the air while its rear wheels remain on the ground. Hook and chain towing is similar, but you’ll secure the towed vehicle by wrapping chains around its frame and attaching a hook to its underside – this method is likely to damage the car you’re hauling, so it’s typically used only for taking undrivable vehicles to a scrapyard.

What to Expect From Your Tow Truck

When you shop our tow trucks for sale, there are a few things you can expect. They all have large, sturdy frames fit for getting serious work done. Many tow trucks and pickup trucks have a high towing capacity, often clearing the 10,000-pound mark. These trucks also tend to come with some kind of turbocharged engine, usually a 5.3-liter V-8 or 6.2-liter V-8. Plus, you’ll most likely have additional options for diesel power, which can mean more pound-feet of torque and the opportunity to tow larger amounts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Towing

What are the three types of towing?

The three types of towing for vehicles are flatbed towing, hook and chain towing, and wheel lift towing. Flatbed towing puts the towed vehicle on the back of the flatbed tow truck, removing it from the ground completely. Both hook and chain towing and wheel lift towing raise the front end of the vehicle off the ground, either with a hook and chains or more gentle lifting equipment.

How do you determine what a truck can tow?

Look through your vehicle’s owner’s manual to verify the towing capacity. Knowing this information and the size and weight of what you want to tow can help you determine if your truck is up to the task. If you have questions about a vehicle’s towing capacity and capabilities, our team may be able to offer specific answers. Please call us for assistance anytime.

What is included in a tow package?

Tow packages are usually a little different from vehicle to vehicle. Most tow packages include a hitch platform, a wiring harness for additional security, and extra cooling technology to keep the components under the hood from getting too warm. Towing packages usually give the vehicle a sturdier frame as well, which makes the point of contact where you attach towing equipment more secure.
