Heavy Duty Towing and Recovery – Our Specialty
Our Three Newest Additions to our Fleet of 8 Heavy Trucks
Five other heavy wreckers complete our fleet of 8 Heavy Duty Wreckers including a 60 Ton Rotator. Having 8 Heavy Wreckers gives our customers the advantage of less waiting and less downtime when they need a tow or a “Switch”. (Tractor “Switches” - where we tow a good unit to our customer and tow the downed unit to a repair facility.) Ross Towing is a Heavy Duty Towing Specialist and handles all types of recovery situations from loaded tractor trailers stuck in ditches to loaded trailer lifts to rolled-over propane tankers. Every recovery provides its own unique set of challenges and circumstances from roll-overs to burnt tractor trailers each recovery we are experienced and have the right equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently. Our Heavy Duty recovery operators have special training in a variety of areas including LPG Emergency Response, Transportation of Dangerous Goods, and Fuel Tanker Roll-over training to name a few.
Ross Towing has always been on the cutting edge of equipment. We were one of the first companies in Ontario to provide Air Cushion recovery. Air cushions can be used to upright a loaded tractor and trailer saving time and money by preventing you from having to empty the trailer prior to recovery. Air cushions can also be used to help shift a load back into place after it has shifted in transit.
Roll-over with Cargo or Environmental Spills
Ross Towing is fully prepared and well experienced in cases where the scene of the accident includes a cargo or fuel spill. Our 30 and 40-yard Roll-off bins easily transported to the site of an environmental or cargo spill and are an effective ways to ground load. They are ideal for transporting damaged cargo or contaminated soil and return to them to secure storage. In accordance with the Ministry of Environment, we are able to collect; handle and transport waste from the scene of a recovery to an authorized disposal centre or back to our compound for secure storage. Having our own in-house equipment to do the job means less time searching for proper equipment.
US & Quebec Authority
Our heavy trucks are licensed by the US Department of Transportation and have PRP plates that allow them to travel into the United States and Quebec. This is a tremendous benefit to our commercial customers, if they break down in the US we can take a good unit down to them and “Switch” it out for the unit that needs repairs or has been involved in an accident. This allows our customer to continue on with their delivery with minimal downtime. We have 4 Heavy wreckers that are plated for the US, so having a truck available to go is never a problem.
