Flatbed Towing or Dolly Towing

Flatbed Towing and Dolly Towing are two of the safest ways to tow a vehicle. Moreover, flatbed towing or dolly towing are required for all wheel drive vehicles (AWD), four wheel drive (4WD) or 4x4.

You would be wondering which is better for your vehicle or in a given situation?

Flatbed Towing

The entire back of a flatbed truck is fitted with a bed that can be hydraulically inclined and moved to ground level, allowing the customer's vehicle to be placed on it under the vehicle’s own power or pulled by a winch.

With a vehicle placed on a flatbed, and securely anchored, there is no pull on the vehicle's frame, no uneven weight distribution, no extra tire wear and the vehicle is safe of any bumps in the road.

Classic car towing

Flatbed towing is commonly required due to the safety factor and advantages to vehicles.

Dolly Towing

The tow dollies are a set of axes and wheels used to elevate the front or the rear wheels of a vehicle.

Dolly towing generally requires lower speeds and is only suitable for less heavy vehicles. This type of towing may be a more economical option since the equipment required is less expensive and the fuel consumption for the tow vehicle may be lower.

To sum it up, if your vehicle is smaller – not a heavy SUV or heavy truck – and your end destination is nearby, a dolly tow might be enough. On the other hand, if your vehicle is heavy (car, SUV, truck, equipment), or is a vintage, classic model, or a luxury car, the flatbed is the safest option.

Best Way To Tow A Two-Wheel-Drive Vehicle

As a professional towing company, Sprinter Towing is an expert in all kinds of towing methods. Whether it’s done by tow bars, tow dollies, flatbeds, or car carrier trailers, you can count on Sprinter Towing to meet your towing needs.

How to tow a front-wheel-drive car

First and foremost, сar carrier trailers are always the best option as they keep all four wheels off the ground, so it doesn’t matter if you’re towing a two-wheel or four-wheel drive car.
Tow dollies are a popular choice because you don’t need any additional equipment besides the actual dolly. Also, it’s suitable for vehicles that have a lower towing capacity.

What about automatic transmission?

A question that pops up frequently is, “can you tow an automatic car in neutral?” It’s very important to understand that towing an automatic car in neutral will most definitely damage the transmission.
However, there is a workaround where you disconnect the driveshaft to prevent transmission damage.
Towing a front-wheel-drive car with a tow bar is also an option, but you’ll either have to disconnect the front axle manually or use an axle-lock.

How to tow a rear-wheel-drive car

The greatest challenge when towing a rear-wheel-drive car is not damaging the transmission. If you’re driving a manual transmission car and you’re using a tow bar, then simply putting it in neutral should be sufficient. There is also the option of using additional accessories such as drive shaft couplings and lube pumps. If you use a drive shaft coupling, then you don’t need to remove the driveshaft itself.
Lube pumps provide much-needed lubrication to the automatic transmission, thus ensuring it gets the cooling it would otherwise get if the car was running normally.
