When it comes to car troubles and accidents, one small issue can lead to massive hassle. Getting stuck on the side of the road is bad enough on a sunny, warm day. Add in snow, ice, and freezing temperatures, and that’s a recipe for disaster. Thank goodness we have towing services across the country, right? But what happens when it’s not just a standard sedan that needs a tow? Most sedans, vans, SUVs, and pickup trucks can be loaded up and hauled by your average towing service. But, when things go wrong with a larger vehicle, it can often feel like every problem is exponentially worse. At B&B Towing and Recovery, we believe that no towing situation should cause anxiety, even if your vehicle is larger than the standard passenger vehicle.
Generally speaking, the bigger the vehicle, the more complicated it will be if something goes wrong. Even at the most basic, if an eighteen-wheeler breaks down, the standard tow truck isn’t going to have the size or the power to hoist and haul that heavy of a load—even if the trailer is empty. Now, let’s add another layer of complication. Say, for example, that an icy day causes the semi-truck and trailer to skid and topple sideways. Before towing the semi-truck away, it will need to be righted; after all, towing it all the way to the repair facility on its side will only cause further damage and make the task more difficult. But, in order to right the trailer so it can be towed, specialized equipment will be necessary.
The other big difference between towing the average passenger vehicle and a larger vehicle is the question of destination. Generally, an R.V. or a bus is going to be too large to take to the standard repair facility. Oversized vehicles come with a requirement for larger work bays, sturdier equipment, and specialized tools. Even with the specialized towing equipment, any oversized vehicle will need to go to a large-vehicle-specific repair facility.
If you are an oversized vehicle owner or operator, finding efficient, trustworthy towing doesn’t have to be a hassle. At B&B Towing and Recovery, we strive to be a towing service that can help anyone in need. We have cranes, underwater recovery equipment, and oversized trucks in our fleet so we can easily help any vehicle that needs the assistance. In addition, we have a truck repair center at our facilities in Brownington and Lyndonville.
