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.
Safety is of the utmost importance when driving semi-trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles. When semi-truck breakdowns happen, you want to ensure your fleet can access fast support, including mobile fleet repairs. Whether it’s due to an accident, flat tire, transmission failure or something else, help keep your drivers safe (and others on the road) with these tips.

When lifting heavy objects, a crane is an essential piece of equipment. Of course, you’ll see cranes used for construction or industrial purposes, but Team Pro-Tow uses them for other tough jobs. Hauling big rigs out of the ditch, moving shipping containers, or lifting old cars over fences – you get the idea.
When your commercial breaks down and you need support, calling a tow-truck is likely the first response. But it’s not just any tow truck that will show up to help with your emergency towing. There is a difference between a light-duty and heavy-duty tow truck. As the two perform different functions, it’s valuable to understand those differences.
