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.
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.
Towing a car isn’t a fun thing to have to do. But towing services are often required for a variety of situations. Sometimes a car is disabled and cannot drive. Alternatively, and more dramatically, cars can be involved in accidents and must be towed away because the driver and/or the vehicle is disabled.
It is tragic when, as a tow truck service, we here at Alpine Towing and Recovery get called out to assist with a serious or even fatal highway collision, especially one that is the result of DUI.
At Alpine Towing and Recovery, we are just like you. When we get stuck, our first instinct is towards self-rescue. Getting stuck in snow or mudis somewhat embarrassing to any Coloradan, because our state affords us all ample opportunities to get experience with either. Nevertheless, despite your best efforts, you find yourself behind the wheel and going nowhere fast.
