Abram’s Towing Service Moves and Transports Massive Power Generator to Toronto
This past week Abrams Towing Service was called in to lift, relocate and transport a massive power generator from Mississauga to downtown Toronto. We think this is a really, important story simply because of all the scarcity and and prepping going on right now. We see more and more companies planning for potential challenging business problems. This means we are moving and providing towing service for generators and other important infrastructure and heavy equipment these days.
We got the call and showed up within the hour to move this generator. We do want to get a little technical for just a moment. As you can see in the photo, we used a spreader bar to distribute the weight and reduce the tension on each supporting line. This is an example of your towing company knowing how to handle most any type of moving and towing situation.
We want to toot our own horn a bit here, as almost 50% of every tow in the Toronto area is handled by an Abrams Towing Service truck. We are fair, timely and incredibly responsible.
Details of Towing Service Move of Generator from Mississauga to Toronto
Our towing service dispatcher got a call to move a generator from Mississauga to Toronto. To make the move most efficient and effective they decided to send out a rotator to lift and place the generator on a flatbed. Our towing service team drove with the rotator and the flatbed from our North York location to the clients office in Mississauga. Our towing service team member met a member of the staff from the client who helped manage the tow. Our towing service team member backed up the wrecker adjacent to the generator. He then retrieved the the towing cables and spreader. The towing service team member planned to pick up and then place down generator. He attached the towing straps around the generator, being sure to have them securely fastened. The towing service team member then placed the spreader bar above the generator to distribute the load. He locked it into place. The towing service team member walked back to the rotator. Another towing service team member moved the flatbed into position. They then activated the the lift on the rotator and the boom pulled the generator up in the air. Carefully, he continued to lift the generator up higher and higher. Finally, the generator hit its zenith. The towing service team member then rotated the boom to the left. He carefully measured the area on flatbed to be sure it was in the right position to support the generator. The towing service team member then slowly lowered the generator down onto the flatbed. It went down one foot and two feet and finally came to rest. The towing service team member then jumped onto the flatbed. He released the towing straps that had been supporting the generator. He also fastened the generator to the flatbed with towing chains. The towing service team member jumped off the flatbed, got into the cab of the flatbed and drove it to the destination in Toronto.
