Different towing services do different things. Many small towing businesses only have the capacity to do residential vehicles. Others can handle something as big as an RV or an empty tractor trailer. But what about if you have something bigger? What if you need semi truck towing in Kansas City MO? Semi trucks are significantly larger than sedans, even without a full load. Weighing in at several dozen tons, you want to make sure that if you have a loaded semi truck that you can get a tow truck to handle the job. At Santa Fe Tow Service Inc., we not only have the right equipment but have experienced tow truck operators who know the complex techniques a difficult job like semi truck towing requires.
Currently, the maximum weight for semi trucks in Missouri is 80,000 pounds, with a 5500-pound additional allowance for specific freight. Our heavy duty tow trucks have a 360-degree boom lift rated at 75 tons; nearly twice the maximum weight allowed on the roads! These heavy duty tow trucks are reserved for the most difficult jobs, ones that a light or medium duty tow truck can’t handle. Special training and certification are required in order for a tow truck driver to operate one of these vehicles because of the high weights and the accompanying danger it presents. Because of this, we make sure each tow truck operator is tested and displays competency operating heavy equipment, including all of the proper safety techniques.
An overturned semi is a special case. And because of everything involved, it’s also one that often can’t wait.
Our versatile towing company can handle any kind of towing you need, and much more! Whether you need RV towing or simply need a jump through our roadside assistance service, we’ve got you covered. And remember that we’re always available for emergencies! So whenever you and your vehicle–including semi trucks–need towing in Kansas City MO, call or contact us first! We also provide our towing services in Joplin, Blue Springs, Odessa, and more!
