Towing near me was needed when a driver of a sedan traveling on highway 309 in Savannah pulled in front of a semi. The semi reacted aggressively to avoid causing more damage to the sedan and the other oncoming traffic. Towing near me was needed and Tim’s Towing and Recovery was called.
We arrived to find the semi lying on its side. Traffic was blocked, and towing near me was required. Tim’s Towing and Recovery brought one wrecker to assist towing near me.

It was determined that the load of cotton hadn’t moved and there was no need to pull the cotton out.
Next, the towing service operators positioned the first wrecker. Second, the towing service operators positioned the other wrecker. The towing service operators pulled straps out of the heavy wreckers. They attached the straps to the rigging and hook onto the first heavy wrecker. The towing service operators attached the other set of straps to the second heavy wrecker. The first strap was threaded underneath the semi and affixed to the end strap. The second strap was threaded underneath the semi and affixed to the other end strap. Slowly and carefully, the heavy wreckers pulled together. They inched the straps to be taught. The semi first balanced on the wheels on one side. It moved five degrees to the vertical. The semi then moved fifteen degrees to the vertical, getting ready to fall and become upright. Next, the semi moved thirty degrees to the vertical. Finally, the center of gravity shifted to the middle of the semi, bringing the tires on the other side down with a light thud. The semi was now upright and the towing near me situation was remedied.
