Semi Towing Team Dislodges Truck From In Between 2 Buildings

Our semi towing team has saved a lot of our customers from numerous sticky situations, but this may win the award as the stickiest. 

A semi-tractor driver found himself in need of urgent help when he got his trailer stuck between 2 buildings. After trying out some “Austin Powers on a luggage cart“-style multi-point turns, he was still not free and had caused some serious damage to the back of the trailer. 

Luckily, our team has a knack for solving pickles. 

The semi towing team, armed with a rotator, hooked up to 2 points – one at the back of the tractor and one at front of the trailer. The rotator lifted both the tractor and trailer slightly into the air and slowly moved the tractor forwards, unhooking it from the trailer once there was space. 

Once back firmly on the ground, the tractor was free to escape and the semi towing team took the time to assess the damage on the trailer. They decided to return to our in-house repair shop with the trailer to fix it up and make the trailer good as new. 

It only took our team 20 minutes to solve this dilemma – excellent work! All that was missing was Elizabeth Hurley in a shiny silver dress..
