Towing on I-96

Sharing Equipment Leads to Towing on I-96

Expensive lifting equipment shared between car dealerships needed towing on I-96 in Grand Rapids. This scissor lift pictured below is something that we were recently asked to move.

It was rented and our client wanted to maximize the useful time of the rental.  A standard flatbed did the job. This scissor lift pictured below is something that we were recently asked to move.

When you are running a car dealership capital equipment can be very expensive. Every car dealer needs a complete set of tools for every mechanic, lifts, and more.   Grand Rapids Towing is pleased that we could help our client reduce their costs and share this lift between locations.

Details of Towing on I-96

Grand Rapids Towing was contacted by a local car dealer to move a piece of heavy equipment from one car dealer to another.  The idea was to reduce costs and share it with both dealerships. A scissor lift is a vehicle that has a railed platform.  The platform can be raised straight up and is known as a scissor lift. The crisscrossing metal supports elongate as the platform is raised.  The idea is to provide an elevated work area.  Often the work is in a hard to find spot. In this case, our car dealer customers simply wanted better access to the bodies of the cars for the vehicles on which they were working.

For towing in Grand Rapids we arrived to find the lift collapsed.  Our towing operator from Grand Rapids backed up his flatbed in the car bay.   Slowly, he moved closer to the scissor lift.   He then lowered the ramp on his flatbed. He and a few other gentlemen attached the lift to the flatbed with a towing line.  Carefully, they winched the scissor lift. First, the front wheels rolled onto the flatbed. Then the back wheels rolled onto the flatbed.  Slowly, they winched the scissor lift all the way up the flatbed. Next, the team perform towing in Grand Gapids attached the scissor lift with towing straps.  They then cinched the towing straps down. Finally, they drove they reoriented the flatbed to horizontal. Next, the team performed towing in Grand Rapids by moving the lift to the other dealership and driving on I-96.   When the arrived at the other dealership they lowered the flatbed to an angle. They then carefully, winched the lift down two feet, then three feet. Finally, the lift settled onto the ground.
