Winch Out Service
The terrain of Florida can be diverse and this can have an effect on your vehicle. Luckily, Melbourne Towing offers winch out services that are designed to help get you out of sticky situations and back on the road. If your cars such in bad weather such as snow or ice, or a mudslide or construction materials have left you stranded, we’re here to help offer our services to safely get your car winched out, in one piece, and with minimal damage.
Snow, Ice, and Rain
Heavy snow or ice can lead your car off the road. Though unlikely in Florida, we’re still prepared for the worse, if it were to happen. However, with the prevalence of hurricanes, flooding makes cars more susceptible to getting stuck in similar scenarios. Too much water in the engine can render cars unable to operate, making them dangerous or stuck. Our tow trucks are large-grade, heavy duty vehicles that are able to work in heavy rains or flooding, without succumbing to water damage as easily as smaller cars. However, it is often times better to wait until a major storm has subsided before performing such services. Winching services for such storms should only be conducted by professionals, so we’re able to help where needed.
After the rainfall and hurricanes comes the muddy grounds, mudslides, or swampy regions. When your vehicle becomes immersed in mud, it is important to add traction to the ground in order to get the car out quicker. Such traction materials include sand, rocks, or gravel. We’re prepared for these instances and arrive on-site with all of the needed materials to surface the ground and easily remove the car.
If your car’s stuck in a ditch due to road elevations, personal injury, or construction work, you can give us a call to give you a hand. If you’ve been involved in an accident that resulted in your car being in a ditch, we recommend calling the local emergency authorities beforehand. Otherwise, we’ll be on-site to help you immediately. Depending on the balance of the car and how it is stuck, will determine which way we decide to lift or tow it from. Cars that have fallen into ditches typically experience tire or bumper damage, so we ask clients to be prepared for this as it sometimes will make the car un-drivable until it’s repaired.
While these exterior elements of water, mud, and ditches, may cause damage to your vehicle when it becomes stuck or immersed, we do our best to ensure that no further damage is performed by our car care experts. We’re accustomed to assisting customers that, for obvious reasons, would like to reduce the damage or destruction done to their vehicles through getting stuck and it’s our job to help achieve that. We use gentle yet sturdy methods for extracting your vehicle from ditches, rain, and mud, and operate with tools to ensure that your car’s damage remains minimal and repairable.
