Details of Tow Company Works Through Storm in Portland
Gerlock Towing & Heavy Haul tow company recently answered a call from a client who was on shift as a delivery truck driver. The call came in from a remote road in Portland, OR on a rainy and wet night. The customer needed a tow company to help him to recover his delivery vehicle.
Because he was lost and because of the inclement weather, he had slid off a wet and muddy road and ended up stuck in the mud and wedged by a telephone pole. The driver was not able to move his van, which is why he called the tow company.
The tow company dispatched a team to his location and knowing that the driver was on a narrow road, they decided to bring along a 1-ton wrecker. Despite the inclement weather, they arrived at the driver’s location quickly and assessed the situation.
The tow company crew knew that in order to recover the van safely and without further damage, they needed to reverse down the road in the same direction as the van. The tow company operator hooked onto the van’s front axle and winched the delivery van out from the mud.
Once the vehicle was on solid ground, the tow company inspected the vehicle. Thankfully, it did not sustain any further damages except for paint scratches. The tow company successfully completed the job and the delivery driver was able to complete his deliveries!
