The towing business can be unforgiving if you do not have the right machinery for the job. Not only do you have to meet industry requirements, but you also have to protect your tow trucks for optimal performance. It is for this reason that most tow truck businesses invest in galvanized tow trucks. The galvanized surface prevents corrosion from attacking the trailer, thus eliminating expensive repairs and replacements. That said, proper maintenance of a galvanized tow truck is vital during winter.
