Trailer Breakdown Leads to Equipment Towing

 

Fast recovery of a broken trailer with the help of equipment towing by North Shore Towing Chicago

 

North Shore Equipment Towing came to the rescue of a flatbed trailer loaded with heavy construction equipment as it broke down on the way to a construction site in Chicago. The trailer was carrying multiple pieces of equipment including a counterweight for crane and a box of tools. One piece of equipment weighed 35K pounds, another 20K and another 10K so you can easily imagine what a hell of a job this must’ve been. Luckily, the towing team over at North Shore Towing is always ready to face any challenge and they got to the site immediately to assess the situation and get to work. The fractured flatbed trailer had suffered some real damage: the main rails that runs from the front to the back had broken down completely. To get the load off the truck and have it moved to a replacement Landoll trailer a rotator was needed and so the towing crew called in the help from some colleagues over a Firestone (a sister towing company). The construction equipment was then loaded on the replacement truck with towing cables and towing straps and sent to the construction site straight away with only minimal delay. At the same time, the damaged flatbread trailer got moved to yet another replacement Landoll trailer truck and the whole job was done in an hour or so with a crew of 6 equipment towing experts. Well done, guys and great teamwork!

Details: equipment towing by the roadside as fully loaded flatbed truck breaks down unexpectedly

On the 10th of May 2020, North Shore Towing received a call from out of state. A flatbed trailer truck loaded with heavy construction equipment had broken down in Belmont downtown Chicago while on the way to a construction site. The truck was carrying a 35K pounds counterweight for crane and 2 other construction pieces weighing 20K and 10K pounds including a toolbox. Some heavy equipment towing was needed straight away! North Shore Towing sent their crew to the scene of the event with a replacement Landoll Trailer. The equipment towing team assessed the situation and came to the conclusion they needed a rotator and another Landoll replacement truck to get this job fixed. The crew called in the help of some collages over at Firestone, a sister towing company in Chicago. The construction equipment was loaded on one of the replacement trucks with the help of the rotator and quickly sent to their destination where the construction crew could get to work with only minimal delay. In the meantime, the broken flatbed trailer was loaded on the other replacement Landoll truck and moved away for repair. The job was done in approximately 1 hour using the rotator, the two replacement trucks, towing cables, towing straps and an expert team of 6 equipment towing experts. Great work!
