How Does Action Towing Maintain Its Tow Trucks?

Towing is a responsibility-demanding industry as people’s lives and their expensive vehicles are dependent on you. One of the important and most critical factors of running a towing business is maintaining your tow trucks.

Maintaining towing equipment and trucks are not as easy as maintaining any other vehicle. There are tons of other equipment, mechanical parts, and machines that you need to regularly take special care of.

The truth is that you don’t need to be a technician to understand each component of a tow truck. However, you should be familiar with the basic maintenance practices and steps you must take to avoid any problems with them. Such preventive measures can avoid mechanical failures in a tow truck. Maintenance should be conducted periodically to ensure the optimal functioning of a tow truck.

Action Towing also ensures that all its trucks and other related equipment are well-maintained and ready to use every time. Moreover, our professionals also make sure that there is no problem with their machines and they can rely on them to do their job every day. This blog post highlights the basic maintenance factors necessary for a tow truck and how Action Towing takes responsibility for maintaining its machines.

What Does A Tow Truck Do?

The main function of a tow truck is to transport broken down vehicles from one location to another, be it to a repair shop, impound lot, or any other location. Transporting the vehicles safely and keeping them in the same shape as they were found is necessary.

Action Towing Takes Measures To Maintain Its Towing Trucks

We Keep The Tires In Check

Tow trucks and their tires require regular maintenance because of the heavyweight they have to endure. This means that the tires need to have a proper load rating and inflation level. Action Towing conducts maintenance periodically to ensure that the tires are in proper working condition and can bear almost every kind of weight. We check their traction capacity and tread quality to get the best grip on the road. If we find any tire compromising our tire’s standard quality measure, we immediately remove it and replace it with a good one. Our drivers keep a spare tire with them whenever they are on the road.

We Check The Lights And Wiring

A tow truck with strong headlights and indicators is necessary to drive safely on the road. If you own a tow truck with poorly working headlights, turn signals, taillight, or license plate lights, chances are you will not only be unsafe for the other drivers on the road but also get a ticket from the traffic police.

When it comes to towing, Action Towing makes sure that all of its trucks have working headlights and other indicator lights. We check it on a regular basis and before going on any task.

We Are Equipped With The Right Equipment

Towing a vehicle means you have to go against all odds and climatic conditions. This means you have to choose the right equipment according to your region. This depends on what type of towing you are going to do and what kind of weather you are up against. Action Towing is always equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to deal with any towing challenge.

We Know The Lifespan Of Our Equipment

Our professionals are experienced enough to know how certain long equipment can last and after what time period it needs to be replaced. That is how we prepare and keep everything ready to replace the old ones.

Final Thoughts

Checking your tow trucks and the related mechanical parts is necessary to avoid failure on the road. If your tow trucks are not well-maintained, they can pose a serious threat to everyone. Action Towing takes special care to keep its trucks in top shape.
