Car carrier tow on FM 1960

Houston car carrier tow team moves truck blocking traffic On Site’s car carrier tow team responded to an accident on FM 1960 and Bammel Westfield Road on July 8, 2021. A car hauler was exiting a parking lot when trouble struck! You see, the exit to the parking lot was quite steep. While a passenger vehicle could easily enter and exit, the same couldn’t be said for this car hauler! The tractor cleared the exit to the parking lot quite easily. Unfortunately, that is where the driver’s good luck ended. As the tractor straightened out onto the road, the steep angle of the exit point caused the trailer to begin dragging on the ground. As the angle increased, the tractor began to lose forward momentum quickly. With the trailer now making contact with the ground, the front wheels of the tractor began to lift off of the ground! The tractor […]

Heavy Recovery of 45,000 lb Honeywagon

Heavy Recovery Team Saves Honeywagon from Super Stinky Situation You never know what a day will bring you when you work in heavy recovery. Some days you will be uprighting a semi tractor, and other days you’ll have to pull a truck full of human excrement out of a ditch! “Truck full of human excrement” doesn’t have a nice ring to it so we will refer to it as a “honeywagon” for the rest of this blog! The On Site Towing heavy recovery team was called out to Dickinson, TX, after a honeywagon got itself into a muddy situation. The vacuum truck was making its way back from a construction site after having emptied several porta potties. The dirt road leading to the construction site was extremely muddy after heavy rain. The honeywagon driver noticed that some parts of the dirt road were not as compacted as others. As he […]

Beltway 8 heavy duty towing

Heavy Towing Beltway 8

Heavy Towing Team Saves the Day Near Beltway 8 On Site’s heavy towing team responded to a call on Lee Road by Beltway 8. A fully loaded cement truck had a rear axle malfunction while driving. Now, the correct thing to do at this point would be to unload the cement from the truck and call a heavy duty towing company. Hindsight is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? The company that owned the truck decided to pull it to the repair shop on their own. While the axle wouldn’t turn while the truck was in gear, it would turn if the truck was put in neutral. Using a chain, they attempted to pull it to the mechanic. They were rolling at approximately 12 mph and were only four blocks away from the repair shop when things got even worse for them. All of a sudden, the rear axle completely snapped! […]

Towing Company Near FM 2920

Towing Company Helps Tractor Trailer with Broken Brakes A truck driver in urgent need of a towing company reached out to On Site Towing last week. The driver was in an industrial park off in Spring, TX. He had arrived at his off-load location and was pulling into the driveway. The driveway was slightly curved with a small curb marking the border between it and the lawn. As the driver was making his way onto the driveway, disaster struck! The driver did not get the angle right and hit the curb, knocking the brake can right off the trailer! This caused air to gush out of the brake system and completely locked up the trailer’s brakes! The tractor trailer was less than 200 feet from it’s final destination but could not get there! On Site’s towing team was on scene in less than 30 minutes. They assessed the situation and […]
