Winter’s coming!

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.

Big Rig Towing & Recovery – 1 (866) 398-7444 – call for IMMEDIATE 24/7 service if you find yourself in a precarious situation.

A little off-kilter

The danger in trucking doesn’t always lay with poor road conditions or weather. It can be as simple as your load shifting and affecting your centre of balance. This large load of sand and gravel threw this extremely heavy truck off kilter and over it went!

You can never be too careful when rescuing heavy machinery. Oftentimes the recovery is more about the logistics of lifting the equipment that has flipped over after an incident. Big Rig Towing works with highly qualified and certified technicians which can make all the difference in getting your precarious situation resolved quickly and safely.

 Big Rig can be reached toll free at 1 (866) 398-7444. We’re available 24/7 for all your heavy duty towing and recovery requirements.

Peat Moss Rollover

When this rig full of peat moss went off the highway and rolled there wasn’t much of the vehicle left to save. The peat moss went on to its destination,  but this rig was down and out.

Big Rig Towing to the rescue! We specialize in all types of tows. We arrived on the scene and got the cleanup done and got the wreck to the yard in a timely manner.

Over the years we have recovered and towed thousands of transport trailers, big rigs, coaches and buses, concrete mixers, cranes, motor homes and more. Our professionally trained servicemen have been specifically selected for their knowledge in big rig towing and transport recovery.

If you find yourself in a disabled, precarious or emergency situation give Big Rig Towing a call at 866-398-7444. We’re available 24/7 to service all of your heavy duty towing and recovery requirements.

Post-spill grain clean-up

This is definitely not the way to offload grain! Big Rig Towing was called out to separate these tow trucks and to manage the cleanup of a significant amount of grain spilled in the right hand lane of the highway.

Spills on the highway happen much more frequently than you may think and Big Rig Towing is constantly honing their clean-up skills so that they can handle dangerous goods as well as the occasional grain spill.

We are committed to providing heavy duty towing and recovery services by employing fully trained, professional technicians. Each one of our operators has a minimum 18 years experience in the heavy duty towing and recovery industry and all operators have Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Certification.
