One of the things that people don’t often realize is that not all towing companies are the same. Just like not all towing companies are the same, not all vehicles are the same either. Towing a car is different from towing a truck or an SUV, and towing a motorcycle is different from all of those. If you’re an avid motorcyclist and are in need of a tow, you’d better be sure that the towing company you call can handle the job the right way.
You expect that when you call a towing company that they will be able to get you and your vehicle to the destination of your choice safe and sound. The problem is, not all towing companies are created equal. Many towing services only specialize in one type of tow, the standard vehicle tow.
There are a few problems that come with this, though. For one, even a normal car or truck can’t always be towed by normal means depending on the type of damage that has been done to it. Secondly, this method certainly won’t work for other types of vehicles.
This leaves people with motorcycles, scooters, and other types of non-traditional vehicles in quite a pickle. What do you do when your vehicle needs to be towed, but it’s not a normal car or truck?
You turn to your local experts at Stockbridge Towing. We have trained experts who know how to get you and your vehicle out of harm’s way. This includes having the knowledge, tools, and experience necessary to safely and securely transport.
Why Use Stockbridge Towing?
You may be saying to yourself, “what’s a big deal, aren’t all towing services the same?” The truth is, no, they aren’t. Like we mentioned, many of them only do one type of towing. It’s not a simple matter of hooking a chain to your motorcycle and towing it away. There’s special equipment and techniques involved to safely transport a motorcycle or other bike-type vehicle without severely damaging it. The last thing you want is to break down and then have the towing company damage your vehicle even further.
A normal tow truck works by hooking a chain to the suspension or core support of your vehicle and lifting it up off the ground to where only the back wheels are touching. For severely damaged vehicles, they are usually rolled onto a flatbed wrecker since they cannot be towed behind a vehicle.
Motorcycles cannot be hooked up like a car and towed behind a vehicle. Besides the fact that it would be nearly impossible to keep the bike steady, there is a chance of damaging the frame of the bike while towing it. Instead, motorcycles must be wheeled onto the bed of a flatbed wrecker or towed using a trailer or specialized motorcycle hitch mount. Depending on the shape of your bike, the only option may be the flatbed.
Many towing services simply don’t have the right equipment or expertise to do the job. Stockbridge Towing knows what we are doing when it comes to towing motorcycles. You won’t have to worry about your precious machine getting damaged because of an inexperienced tow truck driver who doesn’t even have the right gear for the tow.
