Three Towing Options You Should Know About
Whether your engine overheated or your tire blew out, being stranded with an inoperable vehicle can be a stressful – and scary – situation. Luckily, towing services from the friendly team at Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers in New Berlin, Wisconsin, can get your car safely to our shop.
There are three towing options you can choose. But how do you know which one is best for your vehicle? We’re here to explain more to ensure you make an educated and confident decision.
- Flatbed Towing
- Two-Wheel Dolly Towing
- Flat Tow Bar Towing
Flatbed towing is our preferred method of choice. That’s because it’s the most secure way to move your vehicle. During a flatbed tow, we’ll roll your entire car onto the bed of a trailer or custom van. All four wheels are off the ground and in one safe location. This solution allows us to efficiently transport your vehicle without putting any extra strain on it.
This towing method involves hitching the two front wheels of your car off the ground before towing it to a repair shop. Most roadside assistance vehicles use this option. However, not all vehicles can be towed using this method due to their size. Another drawback is that your two rear tires are still on the ground and may get damaged on the way to the auto repair shop.
Another towing option is a tow bar that is attached to your vehicle. There are several types of tow bars, including self-aligning rings and rigid A-frames. If your car is in bad shape, this might not be the best option for you. All four of your car’s wheels will be on the ground during the towing process. This can cause tire damage and problems to your transmission system.
