Heavy Tow Company Moves 33,000 lb Boat

Heavy Tow Company Called In To Tow Boat From Repair Shop

A client in need of a heavy tow company called on Tim’s Towing and Recovery to save the day. The man was the proud owner of a 33,000 lb, 43’ long boat. As with any vehicle, the boat would sometimes need repairs. On this particular occasion, the boat repair shop agreed to pick up his boat in order for it to be repaired. Unfortunately, once the repairs were completed and the payment made, the repair shop owner refused to tow the boat back to the owner!

This left the boat owner scrambling to find a towing company that specialized in heavy towing. He knew that it would take a team with specialized training in order to successfully tow the boat without causing any damages to it. Thankfully after he conducted some research on the best heavy towing company in Savannah, he reached out to the team at Tim’s Towing and Recovery. Certified heavy tow operator, John Vaughn, was assigned to get the boat back to the owner. With a boat as large as this one (14’ wide), special protocols must be followed prior to towing it. The office staff at Tim’s contacted the right departments and obtained the correct permits and routing information prior to sending John out to the boat.

Once at the boat repair shop, John made quick work of securing and hauling this mammoth of a boat with his Freightliner SD 120 tri axle truck! The boat was returned to the relieved owner so he could continue on with his aquatic adventures. Keep up the good work, John!
