Big Rig Air Cushion Recovery

Towing heavy-duty trucks, trailers and equipment is significantly different from towing smaller vehicles such as cars, trucks or SUVs.

Big Rig Towing offers the option of modern, state-of-the-art air cushion recovery for up-righting rolled over trucks and trailer units.

What are the benefits of air cushion recovery?

  • Air cushion recovery can be completed in a much shorter amount of time
  • Air cushion recovery eliminates the need for removing your cargo before lifting the truck which protects your cargo from excessive damage
  • Air cushions allow for vehicle removal in tight corners or in areas where uneven topography makes heavy-duty recovery impossible
  • Air cushion recovery provides a controlled and balanced lift which makes the recovery process much safer for everyone involved

How does air cushion recovery work?

With air cushion recovery, large inflatable air cushions are strategically placed under the overturned side of the heavy-duty truck or trailer. An air compressor is then used to gradually pump up the cushions which allows the vehicle to be slowly lifted off the ground, allowing a crane to lift it into its upright position.

Big Rig Towing is ready to handle all heavy-duty and emergency towing situations. For 24/7 towing assistance or to learn more about our services call 1 (866) 398-7444.

When in doubt, hire a professional!

Big Rig Towing doesn’t tow cars, but if it’s a big rig, truck or something that’s heavy enough to need a crane, we can get the job done! We make hundreds of rescues and recoveries every year and while they all present individual challenges they are all resolved at the end of the day.

Remember that not all vehicles are made to tow and the safety considerations of properly towing another vehicle or object cannot be understated. Our professionally trained drivers and fleet of trucks are fully equipped to handle any towing situation.

More than a few pops, more like a meltdown!

No matter how careful we try to be, accidents happen. When it’s a big rig travelling with a heavy load at great speeds on the highway it can make for an unpleasant disaster.

The good news in this accident is that the driver wasn’t hurt (unbelievably) but can’t say the same for the thousands of popsicles on board. Heatwave or no heatwave frozen popsicles on a stick will never survive!

If your rig has had an unfortunate rollover and needs to be uprighted, it’s time to call Big Rig Towing – always prepared for the challenge of a big rig rescue and recovery.
