Heavy Duty vs Light Duty

You may be wondering what the difference between heavy and light duty towing is or even if there is any. Light duty towing is generally for passenger vehicles, small trailers, and motorcycles. While heavy-duty towing is for the much bigger loads. Heavy-duty towing trucks are usually seen towing garbage trucks, dump trucks, shipping containers, and semi-truck trailers. Different techniques are required in each as the load of the towing job is much bigger. Light duty towing trucks are smaller and can maneuver into tighter spaces.

Hook and Chain

If you are curious as to what types of different towing techniques that our crew uses for our light duty towing service, we are here to fill that curiosity that you have. One of the techniques that we use regularly is the hook and chain technique. This technique requires a hook to be secured to the tow hitch of a vehicle and is then lifted to the point where only there are only two wheels remaining on the ground during transport. If it is a short distance that we are traveling, this is what our staff will use.
