When it comes to towing, there are two scales; commercial towing and light-duty towing. Commercial towing is different from the lightweight towing. Commercial towing handles large scale towing projects that include heavy machinery, vehicles, and equipment. In general, due to obvious reasons, commercial towing is more expensive than the lightweight towing tasks.
Lightweight towing involves handling relatively smaller vehicles such as passenger cars, SUVs, and small trucks. The equipment needed in lightweight towing is less complicated and less expensive. When it comes to commercial towing, however, it requires powerful machinery that can handle large amounts of weight.
Compared to lightweight towing tasks, commercial towing demands a unique set of expertise from the operators. Every operator who handles commercial towing should possess an excellent knowledge of the functionality of the heavy engines and the specific connectivity strategies. Commercial towing industry demands highly skilled and experienced operators to handle their tasks.
The cost of potential damages during a commercial towing job is much higher than with a light towing project. Since commercial towers handle large expensive machinery, the insurance coverage should be comprehensive enough to cover the costs that may incur during the towing process. In addition to the cargo, the insurance policy should cover any damages to the towing equipment and vehicles too.
In general, lightweight towing involves short distance traveling; probably from one neighborhood to the other. The complexity of the overall task, therefore, is significantly less compared to commercial towing. When it comes to commercial towing, the job might demand traveling long distances. The towing vehicle may have to originate from a distant location to the venue and haul farther.
Tasks involved in commercial towing processes are as follows
- Towing of heavy duty vehicles and machinery
