The Different Types of Trucks in Our Fleet

When most people think of towing services, they think of a standard tow truck. That’s understandable considering that you might see a regular tow truck just about every time you are on the road.

But running a full-service towing company means being able to tow and transport much more than cars, SUVs and pickup trucks. And that means having more than just standard tow trucks in our fleet.

The 3 Types of Trucks in Our Towing & Transportation Fleet

Standard Tow Trucks

Even our regular tow trucks do much more than offer standard towing services. In addition to regular towing for accidents and breakdowns, they can winch vehicles with seized wheels and recover vehicles that can’t be driven from where they are. We even have one tow truck with low enough clearance to tow vehicles from underground garages.

Heavy Duty Tow Trucks

The proximity of Toronto and the GTA to the U.S. border means above-average bus and transport truck traffic. Toronto’s endless building boom means lots of dump trucks and cement mixers too. They all may need to be towed at some point, but their size requires specialized tow trucks. Perhaps worst of all, when larger vehicles get into accidents, they can be very difficult to move. Our heavy-duty tow trucks are up to the task.

Vehicle & Equipment Carriers

Sometimes a vehicle is in such bad shape, it can’ be towed. Conversely, it may be in such good shape, like a valuable collector car, it can’t be towed either. Anything that can’t be transported with a regular or heavy-duty tow truck, from motorcycles and limousines to equipment and machinery, must be transported on a flatbed carrier.

The bottom line is, wherever you are in Toronto, the GTA or Southern Ontario, and whatever you need to be towed or transported, we have the fleet of vehicles to get the job done.
