What Types of Vehicles Need Specialty Towing?

silhouette of towtruckIf you’re trying to move an unusual vehicle, a specialty tow might be just the thing you need. While 99% of jobs we have are normal move-car-from-place-to-place jobs, every once in a while we get a more unusual assignment.

Vehicles can require specialty tows for numerous reasons, but all of them mean that this job isn’t as simple as hooking the chains on and driving to the nearest mechanic.

Sometimes it’s because of an unusual shape, such as an elongated limousine or tall monster truck, or sometimes it’s a boat or small aircraft that needs towing.  Either way, a normal tow truck wouldn’t do the job.

If you’re reading this article, you’re most likely online trying to find out if you need a custom job like this for your needs. Let me save you some time—if you have to ask, you probably need it.

That being said, let’s explore some of the more common custom towing work we’ve done in the past.

Motorcycle Towing

Light weight, unusual body shape and prone to falling over—motorcycles often require a professional touch when being moved.

Through custom equipment, like special flatbed trailers build to compensate for motorcycle’s instability, we have the means to safely move your cargo wherever you need to go.

Boat Towing

While a marina that holds your boat will sometimes organize towing to a mechanic or other port for you, most require you arrange your own towing.

Unfortunately, a boat isn’t something you can just attach with a hitch to your truck. You’ll need a trailer, most of the time custom-fit to the boat’s hull, to properly move your boat. In addition to extra materials, boats quickly become an oversized-load, requiring further permits and towing procedures if you’re moving it down public roads. Moving a boat quickly adds up into a huge deal!

Since you don’t have to tow a boat often, it’s usually more cost-efficient to hire a professional service to move your boat inland.

Extra Safety

Sometimes you just don’t want to leave anything to chance when moving your valuable asset. We understand, and a specialty tow can provide the extra safety to set your mind at ease.

Here in Florida, there’s a huge antique car market, and those cars often require special care to move around the state from museum to museum or collector to collector. We keep preventative damage to a minimum by through proper hookups and ensuring the right clearance height for your vehicle.

Some cars that need to be moved can only be accessed from one angle, so an unusual approach might be needed. That’s where our experts come in.
