What does winching mean?

Winching is a common roadside assistance service that involves using a motorized axle and strong cable to pull a vehicle out of a precarious situation. A professional roadside assistance service such as Sprinter Towing hooks a heavy-duty tow cable onto a stable and safe location on the undercarriage of your car. Where the cable gets hooked will depend on several different factors such as how accessible your vehicle’s undercarriage is in its current situation and your car’s condition. After your vehicle has been secured with the cable, an electric or hydraulic motor will then pull the cable towards the truck, safely and slowly pulling your car out of the snow bank, ditch or other dangerous situation that it is in.
