What Is Flatbed Towing?
At Hawkins Towing, we offer flatbed towing as a specialized service to transport vehicles. Unlike traditional tow truck methods, which lift the front or rear wheels off the ground and tow the vehicle, flatbed towing involves loading the entire vehicle onto the flatbed trailer or truck. This makes it a much safer and more secure method of towing, as it reduces the risk of damage to the vehicle during transport. Our team of experienced tow truck drivers is trained to handle a wide variety of vehicles, including those with low clearance, four-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, making flatbed towing an ideal option for many towing needs.
When and Why Should You Use Flatbed Towing Services?
Flatbed towing services are ideal for a variety of situations, including:
- Transporting luxury or high-end vehicles that require extra care and protection.
- Moving vehicles that have been involved in accidents, as they can be loaded onto the flatbed without further damage.
- Towing vehicles with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, which cannot be towed using traditional methods.
- Towing motorcycles or other two-wheeled vehicles requires a flat surface to avoid damage.
What Are the Benefits of Flatbed Towing?
Flatbed towing offers several benefits over traditional towing methods, including:
- Safer and more secure transportation of vehicles, as they are loaded onto the flatbed instead of being lifted.
- Reduced risk of damage to the vehicle during transportation.
- Versatility, as it can be used to transport a variety of vehicles, including those with four-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or low clearance.
- Ease of loading and unloading, which can save time and reduce the risk of injury to the tow truck driver.
- Increased peace of mind for vehicle owners, knowing that their vehicle is being transported safely and securely.
Why Flatbed Tow Trucks Are Important
Flatbed tow trucks are essential for customers who require towing services. They offer a safe and secure method of transport that is particularly important for high-end or luxury vehicles, and they are much more versatile than traditional tow trucks. Hawkins Towing’s flatbed towing services can handle a wide range of vehicles, including those with specialized drivetrains or low clearances. Additionally, flatbed tow trucks offer convenient long-distance towing options, making them a valuable and cost-effective asset for customers who require towing services over a significant distance.
The Importance of Flatbed Towing for Specialized Drivetrains
Four-wheel drive vehicles and other vehicles with specialized drivetrains cannot be towed using traditional methods. Flatbed towing is the safest and most secure way to transport these vehicles without causing further damage. If you have a four-wheel drive vehicle or a vehicle with a specialized drivetrain, flatbed towing is necessary to ensure the safety and protection of your vehicle.
Flatbed Towing Rates. What Is the Average Cost?
Flatbed towing rates vary depending on the distance traveled, the type of vehicle being towed, and the location of the towing company. On average, flatbed towing rates can range from $75 to $125 per hour. However, some towing companies may offer discounts for long-distance or multiple-vehicle towing.
