Because accidents and breakdowns can occur with any type of vehicles anywhere, professional towing and recovery companies must be prepared with the right equipment for recovery and towing. Not only do vehicle types vary by weight and configuration but the circumstances and location of the vehicle can require specialized equipment for a successful recovery. In highly variable mountainous terrain with winding roads, slippery conditions, and significant drop offs, the demand for unique strategies for recovery becomes more important.
Vehicle towing is an unfortunate reality in any situation. However, recovery of large vehicles and tractor-trailers demands very specialized equipment and training plus real experience. While Colorado has several companies who advertise towing, the list of towing and recovery businesses that are capable of handling vehicles over 15,000 lbs gross weight is limited.
