Not Just a Towing Company

Big Rig Towing ClassroomWhen a school needs new portables to accommodate its students, that’s a good thing. It means that more kids are getting an education and the classroom space they need to do that is being made available.

The logistics of moving a 55ft long 25ft wide 4,000 lb portable classroom into its place in a schoolyard takes a lot more math and science than one would think. It takes some pretty heavy machinery and those with the skill to operate that machinery to get the job done right.

Big Rig Towing doesn’t just tow and rescue big trucks and trailers. Our 75 ton rotator rig has hundreds of applications and can sometimes get to and do things that cranes and cherry pickers can’t. Like placing portable classrooms in a schoolyard in Calgary.

Find out how Big Rig Towing can help you accomplish your heavy lifting needs. Call us (403) 444-0009.

Snow Removal

Is it that time of year again? Didn’t you just finish shoveling last years snow like, last week?

Snow on the sidewalk or in your driveway is a nuisance and shoveling it can lead to aching muscles and a sore back not to mention frost bitten ears if its cold enough but big chunks of compacted snow flying off the back of a transport trailer at highways speeds can be deadly.

Big Rig Towing regularly gets the call from conscientious companies to make sure that their trailers are free from snow so there is no big chunks of snow flying off the roofs of their trailers and causing an accident.

And you thought shoveling out to the mailbox was a tough job.

   

The Rollover

This week hurricane force winds blew through Alberta knocking down trees, whipping up grass fires and blowing over a number of rigs.

This force of nature kept Big Rig Towing on its toes dealing with a number of rollovers.

Fortunately no one was injured in these incidents and here at Big Rig Towing we train for the unexpected and were able to recover these rigs.

Big Rig Towing Fire Fighter Training

Every season spring & fall Big Rig Towing donates there time and trucks to help the firefighters train for some of the most serious parts of their job. Fire fighters and towing companies often join forces at accident scenes where heavy equipment or big rigs are involved with personal automobiles. Often the two services have to work in tandem to lift heavy trailers, cabs or machinery to rescue victims pined underneath.

Big Rig routinely spends these weekends to ensure both their team and the firefighters they work with on scene know how to operate together in case of an emergency.

Call us to find out if we can support your ongoing training.

Sometimes You Gotta Be Lucky

Sometimes you just gotta be lucky. This rig used up lottery luck when it ended up hanging from an overpass near Lake Louise.

Fortunately no one was injured and flying debris from the trailer missed a passing freight train.

Big Rig Towing was called to the scene and was able to haul the damaged rig, using it’s seventy five ton rotator, back onto the highway so it could be loaded onto a flat deck and taken back to Calgary.

Fire in The Hole

It’s never good when a fire breaks out in your trailer. What ever the cause the best case scenario is that no one gets hurt.

The fire in this trailer totally devastated it’s cargo and destroyed the trailer itself. Actually burning through the side before it could be contained.

This is when you really need a 75-Ton Rotator to get the job done.

Big Rig Towing made short work of lifting the disabled trailer and getting it on to a flatbed for transport.

Give us a call to find what other heavy lifting jobs Big Rig Towing can accomplish with this equipment.
