Flatbed Towing

Why Use Flatbed Towing?

As the name suggests, flatbed towing utilizes the flat bed of a tow truck to transport your vehicle. Unlike traditional towing—where only two tires are raised off of the ground, leaving the other two on the road—flatbed towing brings the entire vehicle onto the safe bed of the truck. As a result, flatbed towing is one of the safest ways to transport your vehicle.

Advantages of Flatbed Towing

Two of the major advantages to this method of towing are:

  • Less Risk of Bumper Damage:
    • Because your vehicle is on the tow truck, it is less likely that your bumper will be damaged if the truck goes over a pot hole or speed bump.
  • Less Risk of Transmission Damage:
    • Traditional towing methods can cause minor, or even major damage to your transmission. Flatbed towing does not have this risk.
