tilt-deck-towingIt’s mid-May and even if temperatures are not what we would like today, looks like they will eventually heat up! If you are planning ahead and are preparing for the summer season, chances are you may need assistance in getting your larger items transported from one location to another. This is where you may require the services of one of our tilt trucks. A tilt truck is a flatbed vehicle that will tow your vehicle or equipment with all of its wheels off the ground, secured to a platform on the back of the truck. Our Tilt Deck  and Trailer has the capability to transport all types of equipment and items and aren’t limited to just automotive vehicles. Tilt trucks are great for carrying items such as garden sheds, boat trailers, golf carts, campers, swings, utility sheds or other large objects.

We can transport your item within Winnipeg or we even offer long-distance towing. Best to contact us so we can discuss the details and provide you with a quote.

Our tilt truck fleet consists of 17 standard units for loads up to 10,000 lbs (21 foot deck), 1 heavy-duty unit for loads up to 30,000 lbs (26 foot deck) and 2 units capable of 15,000 lbs. Ground and dock loading is available.

Let us know if you are in need of our Tilt Truck services. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Equipment Moving – Emergent Services

Being ranked number one is not an honor we take lightly here at Dr. Hook. We strive to maintain our spot in the towing industry on a daily and even hourly basis. We keep up with the most efficient technology, have the highest trained staff, and our machinery and equipment is second to none. We have equipment that is immediate, and on-demand for almost anything you can think of. Drove your plane into a lake? We will be the ones to fish it out, quickly, efficiently, and always with our famous “first class” customer service.

All of our emergency equipment and operators are certified and fully insured. Our equipment ranges from Heavy Duty, Light Duty, Tilt Decks, and even Air cushion Recovery. The Heavy Duty Trucks are the 3 axle trucks that can tow up to 50 tons. These are the trucks that we use for Motor vehicles, Buses, and any other large vehicle that needs towing. Our Tilt Decks are what we use for items such as jungle gyms, golf carts, bobcats, boats, etc. And that predicament that we’ve all seen once or twice before: the jackknifed semi, or that plane that is supposed to be in the air, not in the lake. For those instances we have our Air Cushion Recovery Units. We use these for uprighting large vehicles, up to 5 ton trucks, over-turned containers, and sunken treasures….I mean, airplanes. As with all our services, they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These situations don’t always happen Monday thru Friday, so we are available every day.
