Our Available Heavy Duty Tow Truck Services
Light/Medium Heavy Duty Trucks
Light/medium heavy duty tow trucks are designed to transport any car or light truck that weighs 10,000 lbs or less. While powerful, their relatively small profile allows them to fit on any standard roadway, as well as in various tight spaces not wide enough for larger vehicles. All of the trucks in our fleet come equipped with modern wheel-lift systems that maximize safety and ease of transport.
Medium Heavy Duty/Combination Trucks
Heavy duty tow trucks in this category are designed to transport larger vehicles that weigh anywhere from just over 10,000 lbs up to 26,000 lbs. To maximize their versatility, they typically come with a variety of accessories that allow them to carry a range of vehicles. Examples of these accessories include winches, wheel-lift systems, underlifts and low-profile wheel grids. All of our medium duty/combination trucks come fully equipped to deal with a vast array of roadside conditions.
Large Heavy Duty Trucks
Heavy duty tow trucks in this category transport vehicles that weigh in excess of 26,000 lbs. They may also transport lighter vehicles that a medium duty/combination truck can’t accommodate. Sometimes known as breakdown trucks or recovery trucks, heavy duty tow trucks are essential for the towing of large/heavy vehicles no longer in suitable condition for driving following an accident or equipment failure. Because of the jobs it must perform, each of these trucks come outfitted with five core tools: a wheel lift, a self-loader, a boom, a hook-and-chain system and a flatbed trailer attachment. We maintain a fleet of heavy duty trucks ready to go at all times.
Landoll is America’s most trusted name in the field of transport trailers. Among other things, they specialize in the manufacture of durable, high-quality flatbed trailers for towing and recovery operations. At NK Towing, we rely on a variety of Landoll trailers to ensure the safe transportation of vehicles that can’t easily be moved by other means.
Car carriers are flatbed trucks specifically designed for the transport of cars, SUVs and light trucks. They’re also known as car haulers. We maintain a modern, well-equipped fleet of these vehicles.
