Our goal at Horizon Towing and its network of independently owned and licensed affiliates is to offer a comprehensive towing and roadside assistance service to fellow San Rafael residents as well as visitors to our picturesque city.
Since there are many benefits to flatbed towing, as well as situations where flatbed towing is all but mandatory, we naturally offer flatbed towing as part of our services.
Flatbed and Other Methods Of Towing
There are primitive ways of towing (using tow bars or chain for instance) which motorists of the past would sometimes use to tow broken down vehicles using their own cars and trucks. Today such methods have disappeared, it is clear to everyone that only professional towing, using specialized tow trucks, is safe enough.
There are several kinds of tow trucks but all can be classified as belonging to one of two types, there are those which tow while lifting just one end of the towed vehicle and there are those where the whole vehicle towed rests on a platform, the latter is flatbed towing. At Horizon Towing in San Rafael, we operate both types of tow trucks.
When Is Flatbed Towing Called For
Flatbed towing has many advantages, it is considered safer, it allows for easier maneuvering of the tow truck while in haul, there are even scenarios where flatbed towing is the only way to go, with low sport cars for instance, when a vehicle is crippled due to a broken axle, vehicles involved in crashes and motorcycles can only be towed flatbed. This is why at Horizon Towing in San Rafael flatbed tow trucks make up a substantial part of our fleet.
