Big rig problems need Big Rig Towing

There are some big jobs that you wouldn’t think would be a part of your company mandate. But that is the great thing about Big Rig Towing, we have the philosophy that where there’s a will there’s a way.

A snow-coach is a specialized passenger transport vehicle, designed to operate over snow or ice. These vehicles have multiple sets of very large low pressure tires or snow tracks. They can seat as many as ten or more passengers and are often used for sightseeing tours or for over-snow transportation such as tours of the Columbia Icefields in Banff National Park.

This snow-coach was in need of a complete overhaul and Big Rig used their rotator crane to lift the body off the chassis so both could be rebuilt and put back into service.

Even a vehicle constructed specifically for the cold and ice needs a rescue now and then. If you find yourself in an emergency situation

In an emergency? Need a tow truck rotator?

A tow truck rotator is essentially a big crane mounted to the deck of the tow truck. It can be used for everything from:

  • lifting heavy machinery that has tumbled from the back of a rig
  • lifting a load that has flipped over
  • removing a load from a rig that needs less weight so it can be towed
  • lifting heavy equipment from one place to another
  • assisting in transferring cargo from one rig to another
  • And so much more…

Big Rig Towing has a number of rotator tow trucks and can boast that they have the only 75 ton rotator in southern Alberta. An expert rotator operator can make all the difference in getting your towing situation resolved quickly and safely.

We pull our fair share of hapless rigs and heavy equipment from any number of situations.

Keep Big Rig’s number – 1 (866) 398-7444 – on hand and call for IMMEDIATE 24/7 service if you find yourself in a precarious situation.

Whoa — a little too tipsy!

Big Rig EmergencyHow many trucks get stuck in the ditch every year because they failed to negotiate a corner correctly or underestimated the steepness of the curb? That would certainly be an interesting statistic.

If you drive professionally, it seems safety and knowing your route, environment, and ultimately cornering, would be the most important aspects of driving a big rig.

This flatbed was transporting a farm sprayer when it pulled over to let a car pass. Yikes — a couple more inches and this could have been a complete rollover.

Big Rig Towing pulls its fair share of hapless rigs and their helpless cargo from southern Alberta ditches. The only good thing about so much practice is that you get really expert at recovery when you do it so often.

Keep Big Rig’s number – 1 (866) 398-7444 – on hand and call for IMMEDIATE 24/7 service if you find yourself in an emergency situation! 

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.

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.
