Enjoy Heritage Day

The August long weekend – or Heritage Day in Alberta – is celebrated on the first Monday of August. It is one of the busiest weekends as thousands of families go camping, to cottages, boating, or somewhere to simply soak up the sun during this long summer weekend. Whatever you do, have fun, make lots of memories, and be safe 😉

Big Rig Towing & Recovery to another heavy lifting rescue!

Big Rig Towing & Recovery does heavy lifting every day. We have a number of rigs equipped with heavy duty rotator cranes that can lift just about anything. An expert rotator operator can make all the difference in getting your towing situation resolved quickly and safely.

Cement trucks are top heavy and working on soft and unstable ground can be the source of many problems. In the images below,  a Lafarge mixer with 5 metres of concrete began to lean and unfortunately got stuck good!

If you’re in a precarious position and need a heavy lifting solution, you should definitely call Big Rig Towing at 1 (866) 398-7444. We can be at your location quickly and with minimal set-up time. Our experienced drivers and operators can get the job done in snow, sleet, rain or shine.

Not a rig but need a tow?

You’d be surprised what Big Rig Towing & Recovery can tow!

Towing is the process of coupling one object to another, so that one can be pulled along behind the other. The towing source (lead object) is usually a truck or other motorized land vehicle. The coupling may consist of a chain, rope, bar, integrated platform, or some other means of keeping the two objects together while in motion. – Wikipedia

Big Rig Towing often has to make use of its 75-ton rotator to lift overturned trailers and many other heavy objects related to rig accidents. So that being said, not just cars and trucks can be towed, but almost anything that will move can be towed.

Remember though, that not all vehicles are made to tow and the safety considerations of properly towing another vehicle or object cannot be understated. When in doubt, hire a professional.
