What Is Medium-Duty Towing?

For most people, a tow is a tow. However, for a local tow trucking company, there are different requirements based on the size of the vehicle you need towed. Medium-duty towing involves towing larger vehicles than light-duty towing, which is your average car. Vehicles that would be considered as medium-duty include:

  • SUVs

  • RVs

  • Motorhomes

  • Fifth-wheel trailers

  • Commercial vehicles

  • Box trucks

  • Vans

  • Boats

  • Limousines

  • Hearses

  • Delivery vehicles

Recovery Operations

Another important job that tow trucks perform for Denver and Colorado residents that many don't think about is the recovery of vehicles when they go off the side of the road. This can be from the weather, or this can be more serious, like in a car accident. It takes a larger tow truck in order to pull these vehicles and load them up onto the truck.

Is Your Vehicle a Medium-Duty Vehicle?

When you call us for a local tow, one of the first questions we'll ask is what type of vehicle you need towed. This tells us which type of tow truck you will require. Thus, you don't really have to know what weight class your vehicle is in; that's our job! For informational purposes, a medium-duty vehicle is one that has a gross vehicle rating (GVWR) of between 16,001 and 26,000 pounds. These are considered Class B vehicles. Medium-duty vehicles weigh less than five tons, which is 10,000 pounds.

What Are the Advantages of Medium-Duty Tow Trucks?

One might ask the question: can't one tow truck do it all? Theoretically, yes. However, there are many reasons to have specialized tow trucks for particular vehicle sizes. In the case of a medium-duty tow truck, their advantage lies in their size. They are small enough to maneuver into tight places, which, in Denver, there are a lot of these. Thus, if your camper is stuck in an alley, we will have no problems towing it out with our medium-duty tow truck.

How Does a Medium-Duty Tow Work?

For the most part, a medium-duty tow truck works effortlessly to remove your vehicle. These tow trucks can lift your vehicle off the road by either the front tires or the back tires. The tires will then be suspended in the air, and the tow truck will then pull your vehicle on the remaining tires. However, if your vehicle has been in a serious car accident, a flatbed tow may be needed instead. This is when your entire vehicle is loaded onto the trailer part of our tow truck, so it can be hauled with the need to be mobile.

Is It Important to Use a Medium-Duty Tow Trucking Service?

If you have a medium-duty vehicle, the answer is a resounding yes! If you've ever seen a smaller tow truck try to pull a vehicle that is outside of its weight class, you may have cringed at the sight. It wears out the tow truck considerably, and overall is just not the best situation.

What to Look for in a Medium-Duty Tow Trucking Company

If you know that you have a medium-duty vehicle, it's best to partner with a Denver-area tow truck company that has tow trucks specifically designed for medium-duty vehicles. This is important because, as we briefly mentioned above, you don't want too small of a tow truck to show up for your tow and it's truly painful to watch. On the other hand, using a tow truck that is designed for a heavy-duty towing job can be inefficient, take more time to load the vehicle, and may be too big for the location of your medium-duty vehicle. It's best to ask when you call about the Colorado tow truck company's towing capabilities up-front in order to avoid these unnecessary mix-ups and hassles.
