One of the headaches of driving are breakdowns and accidents. None ever happen at a convenient place or time. Depending on how bad the accident is, you might need a tow, either to your home or a workshop. It’s the same with breakdowns. If you are a professional driver, transporting goods, it’s even worse.
We at Banjo’s Anytime Towing Service know all about it, as that is our business. We offer this service all over the Darwin region, so we would like to tell you why professional heavy towing in NT is crucial.
It’s a Professional Job
First of all, towing isn’t as simple as it looks. You need a professional to make sure it is done correctly and above all, safely. We aren’t talking about shifting your mate’s car from one street to the next. We are talking about heavy duty trucks and their cargo.
It is Specialised and Requires the Right Equipment
Warning: Don’t try to tow trucks with an ordinary car, especially if it is loaded with freight. Your tow bar probably wouldn’t take the strain because of the weight involved. If the load shifts while turning you could be in all sorts of trouble, like losing control and causing accidents. In NT towing of this kind is illegal anyway, so leave it to the licensed professionals.
We specialise in heavy duty NT towing of all kinds. Whether in the city or remote areas, we’ve had the experience. We shift and recover plant machinery, such as mining or farm equipment, excavators of all sizes, forklifts, and heavy duty lorries.
Heavy duty towing involves weights of up to 25 tonnes, which means the cargo, heavy vehicles or plant machinery has to be lifted or winched aboard the transport. Luckily, we have the equipment to do so and we can offer this service. We can also transport loaded shipping containers after a breakdown.
Medium to large towing, which involve such vehicles as motor homes, RVs and box trucks are easily taken care of with our smaller towing transports.
Having the right equipment is essential to reducing risks and hazards. For example, one of the major headaches is with container trucks that transport liquids. Any fluid within a tanker will move when it is loaded on to or unloaded off the towing transport. The same happens going uphill or downhill and around bends. For that reason, you need professional towing experts who know what they are doing and won’t lose the load.
