What Can You Tow

According to Wikipedia towing is the process of coupling one object to another, so that one can be pulled along behind the other. The towing source (lead object) is usually a truck or other motorized land vehicle. The coupling may consist of a chain, rope, bar, integrated platform, or some other means of keeping the two objects together while in motion.

Big Rig Towing often has to make use of its 75 ton rotator to lift overturned trailers and many other heavy objects related to rig accidents.

So, that being said, not just cars and trucks can be towed but almost anything that will move can be towed.

Just remember that not all vehicles are made to tow and the safety considerations of properly towing another vehicle or object cannot be understated.

When in doubt, hire a professional.

Big Rig Towing.

Armored Truck Roll Over
Published May 27, 2018

It doesn’t matter how great a driver you are or the weather conditions. Accidents happen.

When this armored truck flipped over while avoiding interfering traffic it took more than a typical tow truck to right it.

With these vehicles sometimes topping out at 55,000 pounds, over 27 tons only a heavy duty tow truck like the ones used by Big Rig Towing can do the job.

Fortunately no one was injured and the armored truck was rescued.

Peat Moss Roll Over

When this rig full of peat moss went of the highway and rolled there wasn’t much left to save. The peat moss went on to it’s destination but this rig was down and out.

Big Rig Towing did the clean up of the scene and got the wreck to the yard.

Wrong Way to Make an Omelet

Icy conditions led to this rig tipping over and sliding off the road. Luckily the hydro lines stayed up and no one was hurt.

Unfortunately the cargo wasn’t so lucky. Most of the thousands of eggs traveling in this trailer didn’t make it. Fortunately the hydro lines didn’t come down or it could have been the world’s biggest omelet.

Big Rig Towing is called to many different scenarios and often work with any number of our provinces other services. In this case they work hand in hand with Fortis an Alberta Electricity Provider to clear the lines and recover the big rig.

Deerfoot Rescue

The Deerfoot Trail transects the city of Calgary. A busy 3-lane freeway with a 100 km an hour speed limit, it takes traffic south to north across the city and onto Edmonton. The city of Calgary has a very cool safety feature – that is, a free service to all those who run out of gas or break down in their cars along this crowded stretch of road.

That’s right, if your car breaks down, you have a flat, or even if you run out of gas the city has tow trucks patrolling 24/7 and will aid or tow you to the nearest safety zone located every so many km along the route.

While this is an awesome service it unfortunately does not include big rigs and other heavy equipment.

Big Rig Towing & Recovery specializes in this type of tow. Even though it may seem benign compared to rescuing big trucks from icy mountain passes or dragging them out of watery irrigation ditches and rivers, hooking up and towing on a busy highway at rush hour can be equally as dangerous as any mountain road.

If your rig is stranded on any Alberta road call an expert like Big Rig Towing and stay safe.

Snow Coach TLC

If you have ever been to the Athabasca Glacier you would have had the thrilling opportunity to ride in a Snow Coach.

A snow coach is a specialized passenger transport vehicle, specifically designed to be able to operate on ice or snow. They are much like a huge, multi-passenger transit bus that is equipped with bus styled seating and extended full height windows to maximize scenic views. With their multiple sets of large low pressure tires they can travel across the vast snow or ice covered glaciers of the Rocky Mountains and deliver passengers to areas that they could not reach on foot.
