Towing the Big Stuff

Have you finally gotten around to getting that old chunk of metal out of the backyard?

How we’re not suggesting that you have a locomotive stashed in your backyard but you might have an old motor home or a big trailer that is going to take more than a regular tow to get it gone.

At Big Rig we have the men and the machinery to handle anything bigger than your average car safely and securely.

It might not be the hobby train set you thought you could get back running again, but if your rig is broken down or you have an old motor home that won’t get to the wreckers by itself, give us a call and get it towed by experts.

Ok, we have never towed a train but we have towed some rigs that were just as big.

Heavy Grain

Grain is heavier than you might think, especially when there’s tons of it.

We talked about cornering too fast in the past and the dynamics of load and centrifugal forces. Everyone knows if you’re too heavy and too fast over you go.

Luckily no one was hurt in this roll over and Big Rig Towing was able to get this rig back on its rubber with very little damage except for lost cargo.

It sucks when you are forgetful. You misplace your car keys; you forget to put out the garbage, maybe even a birthday or an anniversary.

When you forget to properly vent a sealed storage tank before emptying it hot gas/air in the sealed container is left to cool. The air pressure difference inside is so great that the structure is compromised.

That can lead to catastrophic implosion like what happened to this tanker and that sucks, literally. Once that happens you can just tow what’s left to the scrap yard.

Big Rig Towing sees more than its fair share of these types of accidents. Luckily no one was injured during this one.

So if you’re not planning on creating your own version of the Oscar Meyer Weiner car, stay alert and don’t forget to vent.
