Flat bed towing, AKA rollbacks (because the bed slides to the car) were also advertised as “Damage Free Towing” when they were first introduced.

Believe it or not, there was a time when 2 very large straps were used to hold the front end of your car in the air during towing procedures.  Then came the invention of painted and plastic bumpers and scratches during the tow.

With flat bed truck, the entire car is put on the back, winched up, no straps and therefore “Damage Free Towing”.

The name “Flat Bed” is self explanatory, but the name “Roll Back” may not be.  Most flat beds when they were first introduce, they would tilt to accommodate the driving up or winching up the car onto the bed.  When Roll Backs were introduced they were the first to actually move the bed to the car, nudge the front wheels.

Combining Flat Bed and Wheel Lift trucks, towing companies could now tow multiple vehicles in one trip and damage free on top of that.
We use a combination of both to safety tow your vehicle to your body shop or auto repair shop.

Wheel Lift Towing

Wheel lifts give the driver the ability to reach out and pick up a car, move it to a safer location for strapping.  In some cases, with the right models having remotes and cameras, the driver can even do it all without getting out of the truck.

Today's towing advancements make safely towing a vehicle standard practice.  What that means to you is “Your car is safer and damage free”.

Wheel lifts extend and grab the front wheels of your car, lifts them up in the air to be strapped down and buckled tightly.
The technology of wheel lifts has come along way, they are stronger and even more remote.  Controls can be managed inside the truck or outside the truck.

The combination of wheel lift and flatbed give the towing company the choice of towing multiple vehicle at the same time, making “Transport” operations more productive.
