Flatbed versus Wheel Lift Towing
Flatbed Towing is often the preferred method for transporting vehicles, however it greatly depends on the vehicle model, make, and weight. The design of some vehicles will not withstand additional weight placed on either the front or rear end. These are a few of the reasons why we will always use flatbed towing to transport sport and luxury vehicles.
With flatbed towing, vehicles are less likely to be damaged during the towing process. All four wheels don’t touch the road so the transmission won’t be affected and there will be less wear and tear on the tires, and suspension. All-wheel drive vehicles require a flatbed, since a traditional tow truck with a hook still leaves two of the vehicle’s wheels touching the ground during the towing process.
Wheel Lift Towing is when the front or rear wheels of a vehicle are hooked up to the tow truck and raised off the ground. This kind of towing is ideal for transporting lightweight vehicles a short distance, to perhaps a repair shop.
