So we get this question from time to time, and we can honestly answer towing your Mazda Miata is not a heavy duty towing job. The weight of a car this size is 2,341 to 2,403 lbs. and the truck that needs to tow this is not nearly as heavy as the ones that need to tow the Big Rigs. The approximate weight of an unloaded semi can range anywhere between 10,000 and 25,000 pounds, according to JD Power.com, If we do the math on this, a loaded semi trailer can weigh anywhere about 80,000 lbs, or 4 tons. So the smaller tow trucks we have aren’t going to get the job done for the 18 wheelers.
Do I need a heavy duty tow truck?
Yes. The weight limits matter for our trucks, and if you want your truck back in the best condition possible. Other things that we have towed in the past include small box & medium box trucks, semi trucks, semi truck and trailers, fuel delivery trucks and buses. The list is long. Here’s what we are prepared for – in any season, day or night:
- Forklifts, Skidsteers
- Heavy Machinery
- Boom Trucks or Lifts
- Trailers, Flatbed Trucks
- Construction Equipment
- Bucket Trucks
- Dump Trucks
What’s the worst that can happen?
We understand this is the worst thing that could happen to you if you own one of these trucks, is of course it can’t go anywhere. Items don’t get delivered, construction projects can’t be completed, or things can’t get dumped off to where they need to go. We see this as an income reduction, and nobody wants that – especially these days when gas prices and inflation of goods and services are up.
