Flatbed towing is such a great option for most people out there, particularly those who want to absolutely guarantee no extra damage is caused to their vehicle (a great option for those with high end vehicles, and for those whose car wheels are damaged so might not be able to be towed through normal means). There are many different types of towing services out there, but flatbed towing is one of the most common and preferred options nowadays. Why is that? Well first of all, you need to understand what flatbed towing is. Some of the towing options out there are dollies, which is when the vehicle’s front wheels are lifted off of the ground and connected to the tow truck, but the vehicle’s back wheels are still running on the ground, essentially playing a game of cat and mouse, wherein the towed vehicle just follows the vehicle that is doing the towing. Also, we also have the hook & chain method, which is similar to dollies, except that the car being towed is connected to the towing vehicle by its axles instead of by its front wheels.
Then we have flatbed towing - perhaps the Holy Grail of all of the different towing options, and luckily enough, also something that our Honolulu towing company specializes in. With flatbed towing, the vehicle being towed is placed into the flatbed platform of the vehicle that is doing the towing, and raised off of the ground and taken from point A to point B. In this manner, the vehicle being towed is protected much better than in other forms of towing, because it is raised off of the ground so can’t really get damaged by potholes, nails, or anything else that may be on the road. Also, flatbed towing is a lot more versatile, because whereas there are limits to what type of vehicles can be towed with dollies or with the hook & chain method, the only thing limiting what can be towed with Honolulu flatbed tow trucks is whether or not the vehicle fits into the flatbed - you could literally tow boats, cars, trucks, motorcycles, or anything else with a flatbed tow truck, as long as it fits in the platform.
As with everything that we do here at our company, the prices are dependent on a few different factors, like where you are at, how far you want to go, and other basic pieces of information along those lines.
