Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, for all-wheel-drive vehicles, it is generally recommended to use a flatbed tow truck. This method ensures that all four wheels of your car are safely lifted off the ground, preventing any potential damage to the drivetrain or transmission. Flatbed towing provides the most secure and damage-free transportation for your all-wheel-drive vehicle.
While towing a car with an automatic transmission using the drive wheels on the ground (also known as “two-wheel towing” or “dolly towing”) is possible, it is not recommended for extended distances or at high speeds. Towing a car with the drive wheels on the ground can put strain on the transmission system. It is generally safer to use a flatbed tow truck or a trailer to ensure the car’s wheels are lifted off the ground during transportation.
