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

At Big Rig Towing, we rely on our powerful 75-ton rotator to handle challenging tasks, such as overturning trailers and managing heavy objects from rig accidents. Our expertise extends far beyond towing cars and trucks; we can tow nearly anything that requires movement.

It’s vital to recognize that not all vehicles are suitable for towing, emphasizing the importance of safety. Whenever uncertain, it’s best to seek the assistance of professionals.

A Look Back

Phew – sometimes we just get lucky! This rig used up lottery luck when it ended up hanging from an overpass near Lake Louise. Fortunately no one was injured and flying debris from the trailer missed a passing freight train.

Big Rig Towing was called to the scene and was able to haul the damaged rig, using it’s seventy-five ton rotator, back onto the highway so it could be loaded onto a flat deck and returned to Calgary.

Not all solutions have to be complicated hookups or rotator-coordinated events

Not all Big Rig Towing jobs are the recovery of crashed or stuck rigs. Sometimes it’s as simple as a big, unexpected wet and heavy snowfall.

When a parked rig has a large accumulation of snow on its roof you can’t just take off down the road. If you do, and the truck gets up to speed, a few hundred pounds of that wet, heavy snow could fly off and cause serious damage to the vehicles following, or worse, send a trailing vehicle into an oncoming lane. Definitely not a desired situation.

Not all solutions have to be complicated hookups or rotator-coordinated events either. This snow removal campaign was remedied by hooking up a volunteer shoveller to the rotator and hoisting them on top of the rig to get rid of its snowy burden.

BE PROACTIVE!
