What are the Other Uses of Tow Trucks in New South Wales?

Most of us associate towing services with situations where your car is damaged or broken down on the side of the road. Tow truck companies can also provide a variety of other services, from roadside assistance to machinery transportation.

Commercial truck tow in Newcastle

NCM Towing & Transport provide a range of solutions in the Newcastle area beyond transporting your broken down vehicle. Below, we take a look at some of the other ways we can help.

Understanding Tow Truck Varieties

Certain towing companies keep a varied fleet of tow trucks suited to different jobs. This includes: 
●     Flatbed Towing Trucks: Designed to carry vehicles on a flat surface on the back of the ruck. These typically utilise hydraulics to vertically shift the flatbed up and down.
●     Hook and Chain Tow Trucks: These feature a heavy duty hook and chain attached to the rear to tow vehicles behind the truck.
●     Wheel Lift Towing Trucks: Works by lifting the vehicle’s front or rear with the other side left on the road dragging behind the truck.
●     Integrated Tow Trucks: These specialise in heavy-duty vehicles like construction machinery or buses and often feature a wheel lift and boom system.
Depending on the vehicle size, condition and type as well as the nature of the job, your service provider will select the appropriate vehicle for the job from their existing fleet.

Transport of Prestige and Luxury Vehicles

Tow trucks are a great option for transporting high-value vehicles. By keeping them off the road, you can maintain their pristine condition. The key is working with experienced service providers who can ensure safe and secure transportation for luxury car owners and dealerships.

Transfer of Heavy Machinery

Tow trucks are also ideal for transporting heavy machinery like forklifts, tractors, harvesters and other construction and agricultural machinery. Whether you need to move a newly purchased piece of equipment or move machinery from one farm or worksite to another, towing services might be a preferred option.

Interstate Move and Transfer

Commercial truck tow services also facilitate long distance or interstate moves, helping to transport vehicles from one destination to another. This is a convenient solution for both individuals and businesses looking to relocate vehicles and other large goods on the back of a flatbed towing truck.

Transport of Shipping Containers

Flatbed towing trucks are also ideal as an efficient transportation solution for shipping containers. Tow trucks can play a role in local logistics and shipping operations by moving shipping containers from warehouses to docks and vice versa.

Transport of Raw Materials and Finished Products

Tow trucks also play a role in transporting raw materials and finished products for manufacturing and construction industries. This includes timber panels, corrugated metal sheets, hay bales, soil and fertilisers, water tanks and more, playing an important role in local supply chain logistics.

Recovery of Stranded Vehicles

Of course, tow trucks play an essential role in vehicle recovery operations. This can go beyond assisting stranded motorists by towing their vehicles to the repair shop. Towing services, like those offered by NCM Towing & Transport, also involve helping people with roadside assistance. This includes jump starts, fuel delivery, a new battery or assistance changing a flat tyre.

These guys are professionals, fantastic to deal with and came asap in our time of need. Broke down in our Motorhome and after 6 hours of no joy waiting in 35 degrees for nrma to do nothing, rang them and they were there within an hour. Loaded and dropped at repairer in under 2 hours. Don’t hesitate to call if you need to move any vehicle, can’t thank them enough.
