When we say, “Trained to assess the job and provide the right equipment,” a big part of that means understanding/knowing the tow capacity of the load, equipment, and/or vehicle. Attempting to tow more than capacity invites an array of problems that jeopardizes not just your property, but the safety and wellbeing of the operator. A Ward’s Wrecker Service operator knows to assess the capacity of cargo and provide the proper service.
Proper weight distribution is key to making the transport safe and secure. A Ward’s Wrecker Service tow operator follows and tried and proven step by step process. We begin with loading the heavy cargo then fastening it in place so there are no shifts. Balancing the sides of significantly reduces the possibility of the cargo and truck capsizing.
It may seem trivial, but that is only until an accident happens and by then it is too late. Having the right mirrors and positioning them properly can be the difference in safe transportation and a costly mistake. These mirrors give our drivers the ability to see smaller vehicles without having to move their heads or shift much. Now, they can make a lane change or allow a trailing vehicle to overtake them without being surprised.
Brake lights & Sidemarker lights:
In our years of experience, we’ve learned that having functioning light is simply put, not enough. When towing heavy cargo, we like doubling the lights. Not only is all our light functioning, but they’re synced with the vehicle we’re transporting. This allows the brakes from both vehicles to light up when engaged.
Fleet maintenance is something we at Ward’s Wrecker Service pride ourselves on. It allows us to keep costs down while continuing to deliver dependable services. One aspect of said maintenance is tire maintenance. Heavy duty transport puts a vehicle through a lot of wear and tear that often show in the tires first. Our tow operators check their tires and equipment before starting their day. This way they are safe can be depended on, equipped to reach their destination in a safe and timely manner.
