The company I called said they were going to send out a Rollback truck. I am just wondering how it is different from a normal tow truck?

Rollback is medium size truck that as a bed that rolls back to the (ground) street level. When you see it looks like a big ramp it also has a winch that pulls up vehicle on to bed. Then driver secure your vehicle on truck for safe (delivery) transport. Some cars or SUV that are AWD (All-wheel drive) must be towed this way to avoid transmission damage. 


Rollback or some people call in flatbed tow truck is the safest way to tow your vehicle from point A to point B. Thank you. Need tow call 267-230-3637


Rollback trucks are used to tow cars and trucks that are damaged from a wreck and  cannot be towed safely with a truck that only lifts one end of the vehicle. Some cars and trucks would be damaged if the wheels are in contact with the ground during a tow.
