This image is about Towing Cranbourne - Equipment Towing Services

Equipment towing involves carrying heavy-duty equipment like trenchers and skid steers that need specialised handling. Transporting them is even more delicate because they are valuable assets, and you need qualified professionals. Towing Cranbourne services provide equipment towing for a variety of machines.

Our professionals will often use a flatbed tow truck because they are reliable, stable, and give the driver maximum control of your equipment. Additionally, flatbed towing trucks are easy to load and unload, even if your equipment doesn’t have wheels.


What Kind Of Assets Does Equipment Towing Cover?

Our equipment transport service in Cranbourne will help you transport any of your heavy equipment, including the following;

  • Excavator

  • Scissor Lifts

  • Fork Lifts

  • Bobcats

  • Skid steer

  • Small Cranes

  • Concrete mixers

  • Containers

  • Backhoes

  • Trenchers

 

Heavy-duty equipment requires special towing equipment. This may include a crane for loading and unloading, a heavy-duty winch, and a sturdy flatbed tow truck. In some cases, our tow professionals may also use trailers like a removable gooseneck or double drop deck. However, rest assured that specialised towing Cranbourne can arrange the transport of our equipment.


How Does Equipment Transport Work?

When you request equipment transport, you can expect the process to be;

Pre-arrival

During pre-arrival, our tow professionals will assess and prepare to tow your equipment. Equipment towing includes ensuring that the truck is in great working condition, planning the route, and preparing for any other needs.

During the call, they may ask you a few questions, including:

  • How large/heavy is your equipment?

  • Where are you located fpr the pick up?

  • Where would you like to go?

  • Are there special circumstances we should know about?

Loading Operable Machinery

Loading may not last more than twenty minutes, depending on the nature of your equipment.

First, we will line up the flatbed tow truck with your operable machinery and lower the bed. They will then drive the machinery up the bed and raise it.

The next stage is critical and involves securing the machinery onto the truck. Tow professionals usually use tow straps and/or chains attached to secure anchor points. They also aim to maximise downforce and reduce slack.

Loading Inoperable Machinery

Flatbed towing requires a heavy-duty winch or a crane for inoperable machinery, depending on your equipment’s weight. With a winch, the hook is attached to an anchor point, and the equipment is slowly pulled onboard the bed. Sometimes, the tow truck flatbed will simultaneously reverse under the asset to speed things up and keep the process controlled.

With cranes, the operator will attach the crane’s hook to a strong anchor point and slowly lift the equipment. He will then lower it onto the truck in a slow and controlled manner.

Transit

Transit is equally crucial for your asset. When transporting heavy towing requests, the tow truck driver will favour smooth roads with less traffic. They will plan their route during the pre-arrival phase.

Unloading The Equipment

Unloading the equipment is mostly a reverse of the loading phase. The operator will take special care to park the flatbed tow truck in a favourable spot, so the unloading is much easier.
