Our semi trailer towing team was called to Addison, Illinois, to help a construction company clear some space. The construction company had been using an empty trailer for storage for over ten years! They decided to upgrade their storage facility as the trailer no longer suited their needs.
The trailer was already used when they converted it into a storage unit. With a further ten years of use, the only place this trailer would be going was the scrapyard. The heavy towing team needed to get access to the front of the trailer.
Due to the trailer’s position, the only way for them to do so was to hook onto the back of the trailer and slowly pull it out. With the front of the trailer now accessible to the semi towing team, they were able to easily hook onto the trailer using a fifth wheel plate.
10 years of sitting in the same spot would cause anything to be a bit stiff. Prior to towing the trailer, the team released the brakes and oiled up the brake hubs. With the trailer now ready for it’s final ride, the team made the 30 mile journey to a Joliet scrapyard.
Keep up the good work!
O’Hare Towing’s semi trailer towing team was requested for a job in Addison, Illinois. A semi trailer towing team was dispatched to the customer’s location from O’Hare Towing – Cars, Heavy Duty & Semi Truck Towing, 2755 Division St, Melrose Park, IL 60160, United States. The 7.2 mile journey took the semi trailer towing team less than 15 minutes.
Once at the customer’s location, the semi trailer towing team assessed the situation. The heavy truck towing team was tasked with towing a trailer to a scrapyard in Joliet, Illinois. The trailer had been used for storage for over a decade.
In order for the semi trailer towing team to hook onto the trailer, they needed to access the front end of it. The front of the trailer was facing a fence so the semi trailer tow team had to first pull the trailer backwards.
Using a tow bar, the semi trailer tow truck team pulled the trailer backwards. With the front end now in a better position, the towing team was able to hook onto it using a fifth wheel plate. The Chicago semi towing team released the brakes on the trailer and oiled up the hubs.
With the trailer ready to go, the Chicago truck towing team did one final safety assessment. With the safety assessment complete, the team made their way to a scrapyard in Joliet, Illinois.
Once they dropped the trailer off at the scrapyard in Joliet, the semi towing team made their way back to O’Hare Towing’s office in Melrose Park.
