Big Rig Towing & Recovery works with highly qualified & certified technicians

This post revisits one of our previous rescues which involved a situation where a fire erupted on the ramp of a car carrier transport, causing significant damage to half of the trailer.

Utilizing a 75-ton rotator and a heavy-duty sling securely attached to the vehicle, they efficiently lifted the disabled trailer and its cargo onto a flatbed for transport. With meticulous safety measures in place, the operation proceeded seamlessly.

How does air cushion recovery work?

When it comes to towing heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and equipment, specialized expertise and equipment are essential for a safe and efficient recovery process. Big Rig Towing provides an innovative solution: air cushion recovery. This modern technique is specifically designed for up-righting rolled over trucks and trailers, ensuring safety and effectiveness.

Air cushion recovery involves placing large inflatable cushions strategically under the overturned vehicle. Using an air compressor, these cushions are gradually inflated, which allows the vehicle to be slowly lifted off the ground. This allows a crane to smoothly upright the truck or trailer for transport.

Compared to traditional methods, air cushion recovery offers several advantages. It significantly reduces recovery time since the cushions can be inflated quickly. Additionally, there’s no need to unload cargo beforehand as the cushions are positioned to avoid damage.

Moreover, air cushion recovery is versatile, enabling vehicle removal in tight corners or challenging terrains. The cushions’ flexibility allows for precise positioning, ensuring a balanced lift.

Blowing snow is a daunting challenge for big rig drivers

Navigating treacherous conditions where the road vanishes into the abyss and blowing snow obscures the way is a daunting challenge for big rig drivers. In these extreme circumstances, it’s a true testament to their skills that more trucks don’t find themselves in the ditch.

When temperatures plummet below -30 degrees, the perils of ending up in the ditch intensify, regardless of whether it’s day or night. This predicament poses a unique set of challenges not only for the stranded rig driver but also for the tow truck operators. Working in frigid temperatures, surrounded by thousands of pounds of frozen steel, demands a delicate balance between staying warm and ensuring safety.

Given that the human body is primarily composed of water, and water freezes at -32 degrees Celsius, finding oneself stuck in the ditch on a bone-chilling -40 degree night transforms the situation into a rescue mission rather than a routine tow.

Big Rig Towing specializes in handling various recovery and towing scenarios. If you encounter a precarious situation requiring a heavy lifting solution, don’t hesitate to contact us at 1 (866) 398-7444. Our 24/7 dispatch service ensures that assistance is just a call away, providing reliable support in even the most challenging conditions.
