Heavy Towing was needed when a trailer broke last week near San Antonio. A truck carrying a 26-foot boat was forced to stop in Marion, TX. The driver couldn’t continue to his home in San Antonio as the frame of the trailer holding the boat broke.
Now, if a broken trailer is close to water, you simply back it up and put back into the water and wait for a new trailer, but that wasn’t the case here. First, water was nowhere nearby. Second, waiting for a replacement trailer just the right size would take too long…perhaps days. Furthermore, leaving the boat and trailer by the side of the road wasn’t an option.
Our heavy towing company driver got creative and he asked the heavy towing operator to send out the 53-foot Landoll trailer. Our towing company driver used a floor jack and cribbing strapped down the tongue of the boat to help guide the boat trailer smoothly up onto the Landoll deck. We did this without causing any further damage. We picked up this boat in Marion, TX and drove it all the way back to the customers’ home in San Antonio, TX, so he could deal with the broken trailer in a less panicked way.
Details of Heavy Towing of Boat on Trailer
A truck carrying a boat had to stop in Marion, TX. The frame of the trailer holding the boat broke. The Mission Wrecker Heavy Towing Company was contacted. The towing company experts who arrived looked at the situation. First, the heavy towing company driver didn’t want to have to deal with getting a new trailer. Second, even if he was able to get a trailer, picking a boat up and placing it in a new trailer that wasn’t designed to hold it and then have to drive the boat down the highway was a bad idea. The heavy towing company driver decided to place the trailer and boat on a Landoll trailer. The heavy towing company driver drove his heavy duty truck just pass the trailer and boat. The heavy towing company driver backed the Landoll trailer up to the boat. The heavy towing company driver then released the winch and attached it to the trailer holding the boat. He then put down the ramp to allow the boat and trailer to be winched up. The heavy towing operator then slowly winched up the trailer and boat. First, he pulled it up two feet, then four feet and then all the way onto the landoll trailer. Carefully, the heavy towing driver secured the left wheel of the trailer The heavy towing driver then secured the right wheel of the trailer. He then moved to the bow of the trailer. The next steps was strapping the boat down to the trailer using heavy towing straps. Once secured the Mission Wrecker heavy towing driver delivered the boat and trailer.
