Most people don’t pay any attention to the yellow bar at the entrance of the parking garages. But if, for any unfortunate reason, your car breaks down in the low clearance parking garage, barriers, or underground enclosing. It will become challenging for an underequipped towing company to get your vehicle out of danger. Because most tow trucks are tall and complex vehicles to make it through the low-clearance parking garage entrance and then tight parking alleyways.
If your vehicle is incapacitated and stranded in a parking garage, you’ll probably call a nearby towing company. And when the help arrives, you’ll find out that the tow truck they sent was wrong and couldn’t be used to tow from a low-ceiling and confined garage space. Now you’ll be thinking how in the world can your broken-down car get towed out from the constricted space of a garage? Especially when the ceilings are low, and the crossing lanes are narrow, only a standard vehicle can pass.
Tow trucks, on the other hand, have lengthy arms called a boom, which is attached at the base of the truck at an upward angle. However, tow trucks come in different varieties and design variations. The ones you usually see on the roads carrying dozens of cars are massive machines and obviously couldn’t be employed in this scenario. Also, flatbed tow trucks mostly won’t work either because they’re too long. And wouldn’t create a proper angle to board a broken-down car from a parking area onto the flatbed.
