Understanding the Needs of Classic Cars

Classic cars often feature showroom-quality paint and chrome, delicate finishes, countless hours of restoration, and irreplaceable parts, requiring gentle handling. Unlike modern vehicles, they have more vulnerable components that need extra protection during transport. At Fling’s Towing, we customize our towing methods to preserve the integrity and beauty of your classic car.

Comprehensive Approach to Towing Classic Cars

Follow these steps to ensure the safe towing of your classic ride:

1

Detailed Pre-Tow Inspection

Before we start, we conduct a thorough inspection of your classic car. This includes evaluating hook-up and tie-down locations, ground clearance, and any specific areas that require additional care. This step is crucial for identifying potential issues and ensuring we use the best techniques for safe transport.

2

Specialized Equipment for Classic Cars
Flatbed Tow Trucks

For classic cars, we primarily use flatbed tow trucks, which provide a stable and secure platform for the vehicle. Flatbeds are ideal as they offer multiple ways to secure your vehicle, ensuring damage-free towing.

Protective Covers and Soft Cloths

To safeguard your car’s painted chassis and prevent blemishes on white-wall tires, we use soft cloths and protective measures. These materials prevent scratches and marks, ensuring your classic car remains in pristine condition throughout the towing process.

3

Safe and Gentle Loading Techniques
Precision Loading

Our tow trucks have low load angles to guarantee that bumpers or exhausts do not drag during loading. We take extra time to ensure your car stays well-aligned on our truck bed, preventing any accidents during the loading process.

Soft Straps and Padding

We utilize soft straps and additional padding to secure the car. Unlike chains, soft straps are gentle on the car’s paint and bodywork, preventing any abrasions or damage during loading or transit.

4

Securing the Vehicle for Transport

Once the car is on the flatbed, we take extra steps to secure it properly. This includes using wheel straps and additional tie-downs to stabilize the vehicle, as well as placing protective padding in key areas to protect paint, white-wall tires, and other timeless elements of your vehicle. We also ensure the vehicle is facing the right direction during transit and that components like convertible tops are securely fastened.

5

Careful and Considerate Transport

Our drivers are trained to handle classic cars with exceptional care. We choose the safest routes, avoiding rough roads and making smooth, gradual stops and turns. This careful driving approach minimizes the risk of jostling or damaging the vehicle.
