Equipment for Tow Trucks
Vehicles will be towed for different reasons such as breakdowns, accidents, lease, sale, and repossessions. Tow trucks are needed to tow the vehicle to its destination. This also means having certain equipment that would help with the towing process. Tow truck drivers need tow chains, dolly straps, tie down chains, accent lighting, ratchet straps, wheel lift, tire chains, safety triangles, full-size light bars, cables, tow dollies, recovery and towing straps and flares.
The safety gear is another important piece of equipment they need. Safety gear includes goggles, jackets, reflective vests, cold weather gear, gloves, sweatshirts, hard hats, rain gear and t-shirts. These pieces of equipment should be stored inside a box in tow trucks for fast and easy access.
Tow truck drivers need to get these pieces of equipment. They may need to purchase the equipment if they're working as an independent tow truck driver. If they are working for a towing company, the company will most likely give them the equipment they need to do their job. However, some companies don't purchase the equipment and only give financing for their drivers to buy half of the equipment so that they don't need to spend their money. There are towing companies that require their drivers to get all towing equipment before they can start working.
