Things to Know When Transporting a Classic Car

Things to Know When Transporting a Classic Car

When you own a classic or luxury car, it’s more than just a car. It’s a valuable asset that needs the proper care and upkeep. That’s why, when you need to transport or tow your valuable vehicle, you want a trustworthy company to ensure a stress-free classic car towing process.

We recently responded to a call regarding towing a classic car. The owner was pleased with the service and left us a positive Google review!

Here are some things to know when transporting a classic or luxury vehicle:

Find the Right Transport Company

Towing a luxury vehicle or classic car comes with a certain amount of knowledge and understanding of the car. That’s where Pro-Tow comes in. We have extensive knowledge and a proven track record for safely and effectively moving rare and valuable vehicles. Our highly-trained operators will ensure your vehicle is carefully rigged and moved without causing any damage.

Remove Any Valuables

Pro-Tow will do everything possible to protect and secure your vehicle on transport. However, it’s still worth removing any valuables or loose items before loading it and towing a classic car. That can help make your car lighter, but, most importantly, there will be no risk of misplacing valuable items during your classic car towing. In addition, you don’t want loose objects in the vehicle while it is lifted and moved.

Learn About Transport Options

When towing a classic car, it’s essential to have a suitable mode of transport. Flatbed trailers are most common in luxury or classic car transport. Some owners prefer to have their vehicles transported in a closed container to eliminate the risk of damage from rocks or outdoor elements on the drive. Ask Pro-Tow about our equipment and towing options.

Pro-Tow Ensures Peace of Mind

Pro-Tow prioritizes safety foremost and ensures putting their customers’ minds at ease. When you need a trusted company to handle your classic car towing needs, or if you require emergency towing, call Team Pro-Tow.

Pro-Tow Helps Park 48-foot Trailer in a Tricky Spot

Pro-Tow Helps Park 48-foot Trailer in a Tricky Spot

On November 7th, 2023 the parking of a trailer into a tricky spot requires planning and careful execution. For those who have backed a camping trailer at a sharp angle into a narrow campsite, you understand the skills needed!

Sure, you see many recovery photos and stories about us removing large vehicles from where they are not supposed to be (like out of ditches and off highways). But we are pretty good at putting things where they are supposed to go, too! Pro-Tow operators have experience maneuvering large vehicles and backing large trailers into tight spaces. Moving things for our customers is part of our towing services.

That is what we did for this customer. He needed his 48-foot kitchen trailer backed into a narrow space outside a building. Unfortunately, there was a barrier on the other side of the road, and there wasn’t much room for our tow truck to maneuver. Parking a trailer into that tight spot with little turning space required exceptional tow experience.

We thank our customer for providing these photos with his positive Google review!

Tips for Backing in Long Trailers

We recommend a few things if you’re attempting to back an extended trailer into a narrow or small space. Here are some pro tips:

Check the Area

Before parking a trailer in the spot, check it out and inspect it visually. You want to understand the size of the space and any obstacles that might get in the way. You should also know the exact dimensions of the trailer, including its length, width, and height.

Plan Your Approach

Once you’ve inspected the space, plan your approach. For example, consider the angle you want to approach the parking spot. You can also choose someone to act as a spotter to help you maneuver the trailer and let you know if you’re getting close to hitting something!

Go Slow, Steady, and Use Your Mirrors!

Don’t rush, or you could hit something or get stuck. Instead, move in the trailer slowly and steadily and avoid sudden movements. Rely on your mirrors to gauge the distance between the trailer and anything you could potentially hit.

Call in the Pros

If you’re uneasy about backing in that trailer or a load yourself, call Team Pro-Tow! Our professional tow truck drivers have years of training and experience with tasks like these. We have heavy-duty tow trucks that can handle massive loads and trailers and lots of practice maneuvering awkward and large equipment into tight spaces.

Why You Should Not Attempt a DIY Tow

Why You Should Not Attempt a DIY Tow

Have you ever considered a DIY tow if your car has broken down? Or even just a brief tow to move your fleet vehicle across the yard? Although it may seem like a cheap and easy solution, it’s not worth the risk it brings. Self-towing invites the risk of causing more damage and higher costs for repairs than calling a 24-hour towing company.

DIY Towing is Unsafe

DIY towing brings the risk of causing damage to car components to even the potential of causing an accident. It can also bring personal risk by causing bodily strain or injury. When your car needs a tow, it’s best to leave it to a 24-hour towing company with the operators and equipment to help. They’ll be able to provide the assistance required to keep you and your car safe without causing further damage.

Professionals Can Handle Any Scenario

An emergency towing company is equipped to handle any situation. They can ensure safety in any emergency situation with the right equipment and knowledge. Hiring a reputable company like Pro-Tow can make all the difference in a stressful situation. Most importantly, you will have peace of mind knowing your car or fleet vehicle is in the right hands. Pro-Tow is also a company you can rely on time and again for emergency towing and heavy fleet services.

It’s More Cost-Effective

While DIY may seem like a cost-effective way to save money, it’s not worth the overall risk. While hiring a company may seem like a higher cost, it saves more in the long run. A 24-hour towing company like Pro-Tow will tow your car without causing any more damage. They can also handle any repairs after towing, which will pay off in the long run with a vehicle that won’t break down.

When you need an emergency towing company, trust Pro-Tow to help.

Crane Lift Service for Camper at the Ritz

Crane Lift Service for Camper at the Ritz

In this incident on July 21, 2021, team Pro-Tow received an emergency dispatch from Washington State Patrol for an overturned camper trailer and full-size Dodge pick-up. The RV accident was near Ritzville, WA.

The collision was blocking the interstate, so we contacted a WSP Trooper at the scene to receive more information. We arrived on-site with a Heavy-Duty Rotating Crane Style Wrecker, Medium Duty Wrecker, and a Specialty Landoll Flatbed Semi-Trailer. After a scene evaluation and discussion with the command post, we got to work on this accident recovery and crane lift service.

Challenging Trailer Recovery

We found that the truck and camper trailer had overturned, slid, and then spun to face oncoming traffic. The damage was significant and required special safety precautions to avoid dismantling the camper. While dismantling was possible, that would take more time, equipment, and personnel for this accident recovery.

So instead, we performed calculations and created an alternate but still safe recovery plan. We also set up the equipment to minimize lane closure, so the traffic could still flow safely. Then, using specialty recovery straps, rigging, and high-pressure airbags, Team Pro-Tow performed an overhead crane lift service and load. Next, we performed non-routine strapping and tie-downs for safe transport to the storage yard and finish the trailer recovery.

Accident Recovery Complete

We performed an overhead crane lift service at the storage yard and placed the casualty into storage. The owner was able to retrieve any personal belongings from the unit as needed. We then returned all supplies and equipment to their original location and condition. Once we finished all the required paperwork, our team cleared the call.

Team Pro-Tow offers crane lift services and 24-hour emergency towing in Spokane, Maple Valley, Auburn, and North Bend.
