What Is a Flatbed Tow?

A flatbed tow uses a specially designed truck with a level, flat platform to transport vehicles. Rather than using hooks or chains like traditional methods, the vehicle is carefully driven or loaded onto this bed and then firmly secured for transit. This approach minimizes the potential for damage, making it the go-to option for vehicles that require extra care, such as luxury, vintage, or classic cars. Due to the sturdy and spacious nature of the flatbed, this method is also favoured for transporting larger or unconventional vehicles, including RVs, boats, and even certain machinery.

Benefits of Flatbed Towing

There are various benefits of flatbed towing including:


  • Safety: The risk of damage to the vehicle being towed is reduced. With all wheels off the ground, there's no risk of wear or potential accidents due to dragging.

  • Versatility: From motorcycles to small machinery, flatbeds can accommodate a wide range of vehicles and equipment.

  • Efficiency: With faster loading and securing times, flatbeds can often get the job done more quickly than other methods.

  • Reduced liability: With the vehicle securely fastened on the platform, there’s a reduced risk of it getting unhooked or causing accidents on the road.

  • Protection for all-wheel-drive vehicles: For AWD vehicles, flatbed towing is the safest method. Traditional towing might damage the transmission of AWD vehicles.

When Flatbed Towing is Used

Flatbed towing can be used for the following:


  • Vehicle accidents: After collisions or accidents, vehicles might not be in a drivable state. Flatbed towing ensures such vehicles are safely transported without causing further damage.

  • Classic & luxury cars: For high-end, vintage, or luxury cars, flatbed towing is the preferred choice. It prevents wear and tear by ensuring all four wheels are off the ground during transportation.

  • Non-operational vehicles: For cars that cannot be started or moved, a flatbed tow truck can offer a convenient solution.

  • Long-distance towing: For transporting vehicles over long distances, flatbeds ensure lesser wear and tear compared to traditional tow trucks.

  • Heavy machinery & equipment: Apart from vehicles, flatbeds can be used to transport heavy machinery or other oversized items that might not fit on traditional tow trucks.
