Flatbed Towing – Safest Way To Tow

There are basically two ways to tow a vehicle, one is where two of the towed vehicle’s wheels remain in contact with the road, the other is flatbed towing. With flatbed towing the entire towed vehicle rests securely on one flat surface, it is hauled on to this flatbed using a winch and then fastened into place so that it cannot move an inch while in tow.
Flatbed towing is considered safer and more efficient; this is mainly thanks to the fact that the tow truck’s handling remains relatively easy even when it is loaded. A flatbed tow truck can therefore be negotiated better through traffic resulting in quicker transportation times. There are also occasions where flatbed towing is the only option, with vehicles which have a broken axle for instance or ones badly damaged in crashes. Motorcycles can also only be towed flatbed.

The Advantages of Flatbed Towing

There is good reason why flatbed towing has become the most popular towing technique.
With flatbed towing the loading process is quicker and safer (when carried out by an expert tech), the tow truck’s maneuverability remains almost the same when loaded, the chance of any mishap while in tow is virtually nonexistent.

As mentioned above there are situations where flatbed towing is the only option, there are no circumstances where flatbed towing cannot be used.
All these advantages mean that flatbed towing is safer, quicker and easier. This of course is subject to professional handling of all stages of the tow.
