Flatbed Low Profile Towing
A low profile vehicle sits lower to the ground giving the car less ground clearance. Because of the lower ground clearance towing a low profile vehicle with a wrecker will cause significant damage. Flatbed tow trucks are built for towing low profile vehicles. Though flatbed tow trucks are built for towing low profile cars, damages could occur to the bumper while loading and unloading if an inexperienced driver doesn’t know how to use the equipment properly. A professional tow truck operator will use the proper equipment to load and unload your car safely with the right equipment and techniques. For example, flatbed tow trucks can be equipped with a tilt tray. A tilt tray is mounted on the truck’s bed, and it titles at an angle, allowing a smooth transition from the ground to the bed of the flatbed tow truck because the rear of the tray touches the ground.
An experienced tow truck operator without a tilt tray can use other options to reduce the loading ramp angle like race ramps, wooden planks, and even loading at a raised ground area.
Our professional tow truck operators know their truck by the back of their hand. Knowing the ins and outs of their tow truck allows them to know its limits, ensuring they will use the proper tools and techniques to safely load your sports car, race car, classic car, or high-end vehicle.
