The Different Classes Of Towing Services

Adriana Noton
August 10, 2011

There are different types of towing services. Some services in this field are very basic in nature while some are advanced in nature. Basic towing involves carrying a car that has broken down to the nearest garage. Class B towing is advanced in nature. Class B service can be transporting a heavy tractor from one point to another or transporting an RV. Another service in this field is called winching. Winching involves pulling cars out of ditches, mud and snow.

During winter, a vehicle can very easily be stuck in snow. If the snow is not very deep, a number of people can easily pull the car out of the snow. However, if the snow is very deep, one will be forced to hire a professional who has a special vehicle to tow the car that has stuck in snow, out of the snow.

A motor vehicle can also be stuck in mud. This will normally be the case when one is trying to navigate across a very rugged terrain in a very rainy day. Some roads in some rural places are unpaved roads. Unpaved roads are normally a big problem to road users during rainy conditions. When a vehicle has been stuck in mud in an unpaved road, it may be necessary to call a towing company if it is not possible for humans to remove the vehicle from the mud.

Winching service is also needed when one's vehicle gets stuck in a ditch. An automobile can enter a ditch purely by accident or if one drives carelessly. If the headlights of a car have failed and its night and one continues driving a car, the car will very easily enter a ditch. Pulling a car out of a ditch requires a special truck. Hauling companies have trucks that are used in winching.

Class B hauling services are needed by constructors and people who own RVs. Constructors usually deal with heavy construction equipments. Such equipments cannot be transported using normal vehicles. Hauling companies have special trucks that are used to move heavy construction equipments from one point to another.

The owner of an RV will need the service of a hauling business if he wants to transport his RV. RVs are big vehicles that have all the amenities found in a house. An RV can be used to tour a particular part of a country. With a well equipped RV, a family will not need to hire hotel rooms while touring a particular part of a country.

When a car breaks down, it will have to be towed to the nearest garage. Mechanical issues are some of the issues that can cause a vehicle to break down. A company that offers breakdown service also offers vehicle jump starting service and fuel delivery service. Jump starting service will be needed when there is battery failure.

Common towing services include winching service and class B hauling service. In winching, a car that is stuck in a ditch, snow or mud is pulled out by a special truck. One common class B service is transporting construction equipments.

Cars often overheat in the summer. If broken down in Ontario call a towing service that's reliable, fast and friendly.
