Indoor parking areas such as car parks and parking garages can be a hassle to navigate even when your vehicle is in prime working condition. But what about when it isn’t?

Low ceilings, tight spaces, dense parking and numerous barriers can prevent traditional heavy-duty tow trucks from navigating a parking garage — but that doesn’t mean your case is hopeless. Removing a broken-down vehicle that’s stuck in a car park is easy when you use the professional towing services at TowCall.

TowCall Truck FAQs

Can a tow truck fit in a parking garage?

Yes! Not all tow trucks are ideal for the tight confines of a parking garage, but here at TowCall, we operate a fleet of smaller tow trucks that can get the job done. Our wheel lift tow trucks, for example, fit within the average 2.4M height of most car parks and are small enough to manoeuvre around barriers, turns and other vehicles in the parking centre.

How long is a tow truck?

That depends on the type of truck — luckily, though, we offer a variety of lengths to allow us to meet every need. Our wheel lift trucks are a compact 5.5M (plus the length of the vehicle being towed), while our mid-size trucks are generally around 9M. We even offer super tilt trucks that clock in at an impressive 18M and are perfect for transporting containers and larger vehicles.

How wide is a tow truck?

The average width of most tow trucks is 2.4M, the same size as a standard parking space in Australia.
