Jump Over Rail Leads to Bus Towing Company

When a Bus Accelerates Over a Rail – A Bus Towing Company is Needed

A bus towing company was needed when a bus jumped over a rail in Evanston last week.  There are times in the towing business when we show up and we wondered what we are seeing. Last week, we wondered a lot when we saw a school bus in a difficult situation.

The yellow school bus had somehow jumped an aluminium, parking rail. The parking rail was slotted between the right front tire and the body of the bus.   As the bus towing of a choice we decided to use a heavy wrecker to lift the bus up. A bit of care was needed to avoid damage to the bus. So, we took a few extra minutes, slowed things down and slowly lifted the bus up. We then carefully placed the bus down. 

With no damage, the bus drove away to pick up kids that afternoon. Thanks to the North Shore team who handled things the lift and set down with ease.

Details of Bus Towing Company Lifting Over a Rail

North Shore Towing received a call last week about a bus in Evanston that had jumped over a rail. The bus towing team from North Shore towing drove out to the scene. The bus towing company decided to investigate the situation and they got out of the heavy wrecker tow truck. The bus towing company team looked under the bus to look for damage. After looking around for quite some time, the bus towing company determined that the bus was not damaged.  The bus towing company decided to take things slowly so as to avoid any damage and perform the heavy duty towing. First, they attached towing chains to the front axle on the left side. Next, the bus towing company attached chains to the front axle on the right side. Carefully, the bus towing company lifted the yellow school bus up and pulled forward to pivot the bus over the aluminum parking divider. Next, the bus towing company lowered the bus onto the ground one foot lower. Then, the bus towing company lowered the bus onto the ground two feet lower.  Finally, the bus towing company lowered the bus onto the ground onto the ground. The bus towing company then check to bus, to be sure nothing had been damaged. Once they determined that nothing was damaged, they then removed the towing chains from the left side. Next, they removed the towing chains from the right side. After one last inspection, the bus towing company determined that the bus was in perfect condition. It was then started and driven away and parked. Later in the day the bus was used to pickup kids. The North Shore team then drove back to the evanston location.
