Professional, well-equipped towing and recovery companies utilize towing equipment and accessory configurations designed for specific situations. Since the sizes and ease of access of vehicles may vary considerably, full service tow and recovery companies must employ a range of tow trucks and accessories to manage any challenge.
In regions like the Colorado Rockies, vehicles of all types travel at high speeds over winding and often rain and ice-slicked roads that may be several miles from the nearest community. In some instances, more powerful trucks with specialized equipment may be mandatory to accomplish a recovery.
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.
Being stranded along a roadside at night after a vehicle breakdown can be a very tense situation. At this point, all you want is to be somewhere safe or, at best, back on the road again with your vehicle repaired. In situations like this, cost is not always your primary concern.
Not all towing companies are the same. Factors like equipment, experience, availability, training, reputation, and location are the primary determinants for selecting a towing and recovery service.
Advance research can eliminate potential problems later.
Alpine Towing recognizes that each towing event in Colorado’s Front Range is different. Different challenges call for different types of equipment. Larger vehicles require heavy-duty tow trucks while off-road towing might require SnoCats or roll back tow trucks that are propelled on tracks.
