Before towing a car, SW Towing contractor will have to first determine the towing capacity of your car. He or she will look for the gross weight of the vehicle to be towed to determine if the car can be transported using a dolly system or flatbed tow truck. If a car is of heavy built, a tow dolly may not be enough to accommodate the weight of your car. In addition, a car that is too low may risk damaged undercarriage if transported using a dolly system.
2.) Four-Wheel or All-Wheel Drive Automobiles
Tow wreckers are only ideal for cars that are front-wheel drive. Because the car in dolly systems are towed by the front tires, only the back tires roll during the towing process. Thus, the transmission is undamaged. However, an all-wheel drive is a different story. Dolly system may cause serious damage to the transmission. Therefore, flatbed towing is a much good option.
