Heavy Equipment Towing Team Completes Quick Recovery for Broken Trailer

Interstate Towing recently put their heavy equipment towing skills to the test when they received a call for a stranded flatbed trailer. While en route to a local construction site in Chardon, Ohio, the trailer broke down with heavy construction equipment in tow. While other local heavy equipment towing companies were unable and unwilling to take on this job, this was a project we were eager to assist with.

With a schedule to keep, the tractor trailer driver quickly realized he would need help from a heavy equipment towing team. After searching the internet for highly-rated and recommended heavy equipment towing companies in the Chardon area, the driver found us! He placed a call to Interstate which was quickly answered and waited a few minutes for us to arrive on scene.

Upon arriving, the heavy equipment towing team found that the trailer had been transporting several pieces of heavy duty equipment, including a counterweight used for cranes and many toolboxes. With a weight range between 10,000-35,000 lbs for each piece of equipment, our crew quickly realized that this was going to be a large job. Not to worry though – we had the situation under control!

The trailer in question was compromised, making it unsafe to continue the journey to the construction site. The main rails running front to back on the trailer had snapped. Our heavy equipment towing team made some quick calculations and got right to work.

First, the heavy equipment towing team used a rotator to move the construction equipment off the broken trailer and onto a replacement Landoll. After being reloaded, the construction equipment was secured with towing cables and straps before being sent on its way to the construction site.

Next, the team loaded the broken flatbed trailer onto another replacement Landoll trailer truck. This was sent to the nearest repair shop to fix the broken beams.

Thanks to our team of six heavy equipment towing technicians, this job was completed with urgency and efficiency. We were happy for the opportunity to add to our heavy equipment towing portfolio.
