What You Need To Know About Towing

04 May What You Need To Know About Towing

As the seasons change and weather becomes more adverse, it becomes increasingly more important to prepare for your auto travel. Regardless of the distance, the combination of holiday travel and varying road conditions have the ability to cause unforeseen problems for drivers. For this reason, it is important to have a plan in place in the case car trouble or an accident occurs.


First, it is important to distinguish what service you need before even calling a towing company. By asking for the right service, you will expedite the process and get you off the road sooner. From traditional towing to flatbed trailers, there are a handful of ways to tow your car.

Traditional Tow

For most, a traditional tow will suffice. This process involves lifting the front wheels off the ground to easily haul the vehicle. It is probably what you imagine when you think of towing as it is by far the most popular method of transporting vehicles. At Tiger Towing, we pair traditional towing with our service and high standards for customer care to ensure vehicles are handled properly when they are entrusted to us.


Traditional towing can be utilized for lot management, vehicle transport, emergency roadside assistance or accident assistance.


Flatbed Tow

If a traditional tow is not conducive for your vehicle, then a flatbed tow may be able to accommodate your needs. Using a flat, hydraulically inclining and declining surface rather than a hook, it enables drivers of four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicles to transport their cars with ease. If you have one of the aforementioned cars, then it is important to ask for a flatbed as a traditional tow could damage your car.


If you are the owner of a motorcycle or specialty vehicle, then a flatbed tow would be best suited for your needs. It allows high-end or novelty cars to retain their value during long-distance transport as it avoids increased mileage or damage. We use our flatbed to move your specialty vehicle, and we do so with the utmost care and as much pride as you have when you drive it.



In addition to the other types of towing, winching can be utilized to remove vehicles in unique situations. Our Winch-out services are specifically designed to pull all vehicles out of snow, mud, water and ditches.


With the unpredictable weather and varying terrain, winching can be beneficial to any mid-Missourian. Our team is skilled, knowledgeable and equipped with the top of the line equipment that is required to get your vehicle out with the least amount of damage.
