New addition to the fleet

Based out of Calgary, Alberta, and with our branch offices in Airdrie and Red Deer, Alberta, we specialize in, and are dedicated solely to, the heavy duty towing and recovery industry.

Every so often it comes time to update the fleet. Upgrading our heavy-duty rigs as business demands is critical to having an efficient and reliable business, a huge benefit to both Big Rig Towing and our customers.

We currently have a 35-ton Metro out the door and almost ready to go. All we need is to get the logo and the flames painted on it and it’ll be time to hit the road! Check back again for posts of the finished vehicle.

Trip down memory lane

A number of years back Big Rig was called out to a job to rescue a precarious tanker full of volatile flammable liquids. It was a joint, coordinated, and successful, rescue operation by Big Rig Towing, The Fire Department and City Police.

Anywhere, anytime, Big Rig Towing & Recovery is available to service all of your heavy duty towing and recovery requirements. If you find yourself in a disabled, precarious, or emergency situation call Big Rig toll free at 1 (866) 398-7444.

Snow, so soon?!

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 like we just experienced here in Alberta this weekend.

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.

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 situation!

Speed Rolls

It always comes down to how fast your going. This rig rolled because of excessive speed. When you have 40,000 lbs on board one small move and it’s a disaster. Fortunately no one was hurt and Big Rig Towing got the rig back on its wheels and off to repair.

Rotator

photo 4A 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 to assist in getting cargo off one rig onto another.

Big Rig Towing has a number of rotator tow trucks and they are constantly in use. Especially once the weather gets cold the highways become more treacherous. An expert rotator operator can make all the difference in getting your towing situation resolved quickly and safely.
