tow truck service

The work of a towing company is not limited to the everyday car. In fact, tow truck services work with a wide variety of vehicles that have broken down, bogged or require extra special care when transporting. In this week’s blog, we discuss the tow truck service industry and the varying situations that they can be required.

Machinery tow truck service

When transporting machinery, a modern data dispatch and GPS technologies are used so that the vehicles are tracked from pick up to delivery. This also allows delivery on-request reporting, real-time reports on the status of the tow, where it is and its estimated time of arrival.

Machinery and industrial equipment are transported from government agencies, individual clients, organisations and companies across a range of industries.

Machinery & Equipment Type include:

  • Forklifts
  • Tractors
  • Scissor Lifts
  • Portable Toilets
  • Cherry Pickers
  • Site Sheds
  • Bobcats
  • Containers
  • Sweepers
  • Generators
  • Booms
  • Portable lights
  • Cranes
  • Trucks
  • Transport vehicles

Enclosed vehicle tow

This service is designed for prestigious car shows, displays and other high-end events, where cars need to be protected from dust and dirt. However, the enclosed vehicle tow is also popular with those who want to ensure their car is in good hands, especially if it is travelling interstate.

Enclosed vehicle tow is only operated by skilled, experienced staff, who will load and unload the car with due care. This service will ensure:

  • All vehicles are tracked by GPS for minute-by-minute status updates
  • Storage facilities are CCTV monitored
  • All staff are fully trained and undergo a police check

Specialised tow

Specialised towing ensures that vehicles are safely and appropriately towed. These services include:

  • Corporate promotions
  • Prestige, vintage and classic cars
  • Concourse Show Cars
  • Race cars
  • Prototypes
  • Motorcycles
  • Boats
  • Trailers
  • Caravans
  • Floats

These vehicles are towed with state-of-the-art equipment including tilt-slide tray and wheel-lift tow trucks. The fleet also includes an enclosed Car Transporter, ideal for premium and VIP vehicles that require extra protection.

Salvage tow

From bogged vehicles deep in the forest, in rivers and embankments, in off-road crashes, in canals or abandoned, the salvage tow will ensure that your vehicle is taken to a salvage yard near you.

However, if you require a tow, make sure you are in a safe position before attempting to call for a salvage tow.

Low distance tow

A long-distance towing service provides customers with peace of mind when it comes to their vehicle. The towing service is fast, safe and reliable with all tow trucks fitted with GPS trackers which means you’ll receive real time updates.

Low-distance tow trucks can be open or covered towing vehicles so you can make the decision based on what’s best for your vehicle.

Ahmed took great care and attention to detail in loading and unloading my BMW M4. It's not every day you find a towing company that knows how to handle prestige vehicles.

We needed to tow our Porsche 997.2 Carrera from the depths of our apartment carpark to Porsche Centre Melbourne. GT used a low rise unit operated by Tom to enter the carpark and collect our cherished vehicle. Tom's executed the tow with great skill and performed a flawless job. I would not hesitate to use GT and Tom for this task again - hopefully will never need to!

Our car was stuck in one of the steepest and angled driveways that barely had room for one car. Tom was amazing and really took the time to technically work it out and incredibly got the car out unscathed! Very impressed and grateful for the help we were given today, would highly recommend Tom, he’s a legend!

These guys are awesome! Used them twice now and was lucky enough to have Tom tow it both times, he took care of my pride and joy, kept me in the loop regarding pick up and drop off and went over and above to make sure my car was looked after. Highly recommend to anyone.

Unfortunately I found myself in a situation with one deflated run-flat tyre but Tom at Gardenstate Towing came to my rescue. Tom was absolutely pleasant and courteous! Let me ride up front and dropped me off home along the way to South Yarra BMW. Highly recommend Tom and Gardenstate Towing services!

Fred was great! He towed my son’s car late at night and was incredibly positive and non-judgemental. His customer service skills was second to none, and someone who modelled a genuine enthusiasm for his work. What a great role model!
