ASAP Flatbed Towing Calgary
Our flatbed towing service is the safest method of towing. We have 12 flatbed towing trucks all geared up to help transport your vehicles anytime of day or night. We load vehicles at the back of the tow truck with utmost care. We load them by driving the vehicle up the slide while it still can or we pull them in case of road accidents using a winch if it is wrecked and not manageable. We make sure that we arrive at your location within 20 minutes but we also try our best to be there in less than 20 minutes.
What is Flatbed Towing?
Flatbed towing is the most convenient way to tow your vehicles with less to no damage at all compared to traditional towing like that of dolly towing. It is ideal for luxury and vintage cars, or if you just really want to protect your vehicle from wear and tear during transport.
Flatbed is a flat surface known as a slider which can be inclined with one end lowered to the ground and the other end rests at the back of the towing truck. The vehicle to be towed is then moved at the top of the bed by driving itself up the slide or pulled upwards using a winch.
Luxury and top of the line vehicles are often towed using flatbed because it minimizes wear and tear of the vehicle especially on the wheels that are normally in contact to the ground when other method of towing is used like wheel-lift or belt lift towing.
What To Do?
ASAP Towing Calgary also practices safety at all times. We slowly load the vehicle up the bed to make sure it is free of any damage. If you plan to participate in a car show, car race or auctions, we recommend that you go for our flatbed towing service.
Below are certain pre, during and post flatbed towing protocols and checklists we follow to keep all our services organized and well executed.
How we do Flatbed Towing?
We check all our vehicles and tow trucks and make sure all are ready to hit the road. All other service checks are also performed such as tires should be inflated, brakes should be working properly, brake fluid, oil, battery and gasoline should all be at its desired level. These checks will make sure that we reach you on time to attend to your needs.
During Flatbed Towing and Transport
At the onset of the flatbed towing process, we assess the condition of your vehicle before towing it. We check body condition and analyze what type of towing method best applies. While the vehicle is towed, our certified mechanical technicians carefully loads the vehicle on the bed and secure it once the flatbed is lifted and the tow truck is ready for departure.
During the transport phase, we do spot checks to make sure all cables or equipment is secured specially the vehicle itself. If instance of loose cable or equipment, we stop at the pull-over bays of the road and fix it. This way, we can ensure that the transport is safe and we deliver your vehicle to your destination.
Post-Flatbed Towing is only a series of quick checks if your vehicle is delivered to your destination successfully. We also re-check our tow trucks and vehicles after the transport to point if there are any changes so we can fix them before we serve another client.
