Towing, Recovery or Rescue

Towing is defined as the process of coupling one object to another, so that one can be pulled along behind the other. It is commonly used to describe the moving of, or in the seizure of, a vehicle.

In Big Rig Towing’s case the terms recovery or rescue is also used along with towing.

Sometimes the recovery of a big rig is not about hooking it up and getting it to repair, but more about the logistics of recovering the rig after it has left the road. A somewhat more dangerous scenario than towing a vehicle that is still on its wheels.

Big Rig Towing makes 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.

Big Rig Towing has the province’s only 75-ton sliding rotator in their fleet!

A tow truck rotator is essentially a big crane mounted to the deck of the tow truck and can be used for everything from lifting heavy machinery fallen from rigs that have flipped over or for removing a load from a rig that needs less weight so it can be towed. It can also lift heavy equipment from one place to another or assist in getting cargo off one rig onto another.

Big Rig Towing has a number of rotator tow trucks and can boast having the only 75-ton sliding rotator in Southern Alberta. An expert rotator operator can make all the difference in getting your towing situation resolved quickly and safely, especially once the weather gets cold the highways become more treacherous. 

No matter what situation you find yourself in, Big Rig is ready to come to the rescue!

In addition to our 75-ton sliding rotator, our heavy duty towing and recovery division consists of fifteen units, thirteen tandem axle and two tri-drive units. All fifteen trucks are equipped with under reaches for damage free towing.

To complement the wreckers we have a modern, state-of-the-art, fully equipped air cushion recovery unit for up-righting rolled over tractor trailer units. Should the need arise we also have replacement tractors to tow your trailers, loaded or empty.

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!
