In a precarious situation? Big Rig to the rescue

What do you do when your crane gets blown over? Call in more cranes of course!

Big Rig Towing & Recovery used two of their biggest cranes to right this one when it was blown over in high winds. The job was a little trickier than it looked, but Big Rig takes great pains to update and train their operators for just this type of situation.

When to Use a Sand Wedge

Positioning a load is critical. Too much weight on one side or the other can have catastrophic consequences.

This truck hauling sand had its hydraulics literally pulled out from under it when the sand shifted causing the dump bed to twist away from the frame and turn the trailer over. Big Rig Towing made quick work righting and getting the broken pieces back to the shop for repair.

We have a number of rotator tow trucks and can boast that we 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.

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.

Summer home need a tow?

These days big Class A Motorhome RVs are like tiny houses. Generally if well-maintained they rarely break down, but they are motorized vehicles and despite your best planning and preparation there will be occasional times that operating issues will occur.

When your home away from home is on wheels and it breaks down, you want to make sure you get someone who has experience towing these types of oversized vehicles — that is, the right company for the job. Fortunately, Big Rig Towing has had lots of practice towing this type of motorhome.

If you’re on the road this summer and find yourself in a stressful situation call 1 (866) 398-7444 for 24/7 service.

In the meantime, remember to take extra precautions when you’re broken down on the side of the road — stay calm and stay safe while you’re awaiting our arrival.

Rock & Roll

Literally, the hardest thing for any rig operator is to keep the truck on the road once the centre of balance gets the least bit off.

This rig carrying a load of rocks got off the pavement just enough to send it into the ditch. That’s definitely a heavy cleanup but, Big Rig Towing got the job done and transported the damaged rig back to the shop for repairs.

We make hundreds of these rescues and recoveries every year, and while they all present individual challenges, they are all resolved at the end of the day.
