Tow trucks and wreckers
Tow trucks are commonly seen around highways, operated by road authority businesses. Tow trucks, also known as wreckers, usually come in different types but usually consist of a single cabin with an open bed and are meant to transport damaged cars to a repair shop or other location. One category of tow trucks is called “slides” or “flatbeds”. These trucks are equipped with a bed which can be moved to ground level. A car can then be driven or pulled onto the bed. In many emergency towing situations, slides or flatbeds are put into practice.
A second category are the wheel lift trucks. These are equipped with a metal yoke which fits under the front of the car or under the rear wheels. Through a hydraulic system, the car can be lifted by only touching the tires. A third category in tow trucks or wreckers are the so-called hook and chain trucks. These are slowly but surely getting out of business. They are designed in a way that risks unintentional damage to the front and back of cars.
