What Towing Capacity Is and How to Calculate It

When we first arrive onsite to provide heavy-duty towing services, we will fully assess the situation and determine the best heavy-duty towing and recovery equipment to use. Our goal is to get your truck or trailer to safety as quickly and efficiently as possible while mitigating risk, danger, safety issues, and damage. We will first assess the vehicle’s towing capacity. A vehicle’s towing capacity is the amount of weight it can tow to transport the vehicle and its load safely. We will account for the weight of the heavy-duty towing truck and the weight of cargo and passengers, as well as fluids like gas and coolant. We will use the best heavy-duty truck to tow your load.

Most Common Questions About Heavy-duty Towing

A heavy-duty tow truck can move semis, garbage trucks, big rigs, trailers, and bobtail trucks.

A heavy-duty towing truck has no weight limits.

The most common types of heavy-duty towing equipment we use are:

  • Wheel lifts – These are also called under lifts and attach to a vehicle’s front and back wheels to partially lift them from the road, so the other wheels are at road level for transport.
  • Light bars – These are attached to the driver’s window to provide illumination in low-visibility conditions. This helps us see clearly and ensure the safety of people and equipment.
  • Chains and hooks – These are used to secure loads and keep the vehicle in place during loading and towing. We may use tow hooks for lighter loads and chains for heavier or more unwieldy loads.
  • Winches – Winches, chains, or cables are wrapped around a drum. They are used to lift vehicles from the road and offer tension to ensure the vehicle is stable during transport. They can also be used to lift a vehicle onto a flatbed truck.
  • Boom lifts – Boom lifts have a sling at the end to cradle the vehicle as it is moved into the desired position. They allow a wrecker to rotate and remove vehicles from hard-to-reach spots.
