    Light Duty Towing

    What is light-duty towing?


    Light duty towing services are for hauling smaller vehicles, typically referring to cars, motorcycles, and even small trucks. They’re handy in situations like:

    • When your car breaks down and needs to be brought to a mechanic shop
    • If your car is illegally parked and needs to be moved
    • Following an accident, to remove your car from the scene

    Light duty tow trucks are smaller and more maneuverable than larger tow trucks, allowing them to navigate busy streets and tight spaces. This makes them well-suited for towing in urban areas. Since they’re dealing with lighter vehicles, light duty towing is also generally less expensive than towing larger vehicles.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    How can I find someone to tow my car?

    You might be able to get a tow truck by calling the local police’s non-emergency line, depending on where you are. You can also conduct us by calling 888-802-8250.

    Can I tow something light with a heavy-duty truck?

    A heavy-duty truck would be inefficient and more expensive to use to move a little automobile. Furthermore, selecting the incorrect kind of tow truck could result in transmission and other element damage to your car.

    What’s the difference between light-duty and medium-duty towing?

    Light-duty tow trucks are smaller and handle lighter vehicles, typically up to 11,000 pounds. Think cars, motorcycles, and small trucks. Medium-duty tow trucks are larger and handle heavier vehicles, up to 26,000 pounds. This includes SUVs, vans, and larger trucks.

    What happens if the wrong truck is used?

    There are two main concerns when using the wrong size tow truck:

    • Light duty tow truck for a heavy load: This can be dangerous. The tow truck may not be powerful enough to safely haul the vehicle, risking damage to both the tow truck and the vehicle being towed. Additionally, the light duty truck’s brakes and suspension may not be able to handle the extra weight, increasing the risk of an accident.
    • Heavy duty tow truck for a light load: This is less risky, but it’s not ideal. You’ll likely be paying more than necessary for a service a light duty truck could handle just fine. It’s also less efficient, as heavy duty tow trucks are typically larger and take longer to maneuver.
