Idaho Falls Towing

Traveling through Idaho Falls could be part of your everyday routine. However, there are even more travels that aren’t local and this is not part of the everyday commute. There are thousands of people each year who pass through this area on their way to fun adventures such as Jackson Hole, Island Park, and Yellowstone National Park. 

Passenger vehicles are great, but there is always a chance that unforeseen circumstances will arise such as an equipment malfunction or an accident resulting in damage. We are aware that all too often situations arise that lead to the need for an Idaho Falls towing company. 

Who Needs Towing Services?

A bold claim would be to say that everyone at some point in their life will need a towing service. However, that is probably true. There are a variety of scenarios that would lead to someone seeking the help of a towing company. 

A few examples could be: 

  • A car blocking your personal residence
  • An accident rendering the vehicle not safe to drive
  • Mechanical failure of different kinds
  • Slide offs during poor weather conditions
  • Abandoned vehicle or junk removal
  • Stuck in a field/mud/snow/sand
  • Out of gas
  • Rollover 

Heavy Towing

“Heavy” towing is considered anything 26,000 pounds or above. This type of towing requires a specific set of skills and more importantly the right equipment. Not every towing company can provide heavy towing and recovery. But, Sunkiss is here to help! Our heavy towing fleet can handle the biggest, most difficult jobs with ease. 

Examples of vehicles that would qualify for heavy towing include:

  • Garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Semi trailer
  • Tractors and machinery

Long Haul Trucking and Semi Truck Routes

We know that there are many truck routes that pass through this area. Interstate 15 connects all the way from California to Montana and the states in between. With countless semis on the roadway, there are bound to be problems. When those unfortunate circumstances present themselves, Sunkiss towing is there to help. We are the number one choice in east Idaho for a reason. We have unmatched experience and are WreckMaster certified

Medium and Light Duty Towing

There are a lot of options when it comes to towing vehicles of this size. You may even be tempted to tackle the job yourself. However, that is not recommended. You can rest assured that Sunkiss towing will take great care when handling your vehicle as if it was their own. We are good at what we do, so we can get the job done in a timely manner. But, we will never risk compromising quality or safety for the sake of time. 

Depending on the actual size of the vehicle, medium duty could include: 

  • Box trucks
  • Vans
  • Motorhomes

Light duty towing is everything smaller than that, such as your everyday cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, ATVs, etc. Outside of roadside breakdowns or crashes, we can also do residential removal. Most people have an old unsightly clunker on their property that they would like to be removed but don’t have the time or the resources to get rid of it. We can help!

The Difference Between Towing and Recovery

To put it in the simplest terms, towing is transporting a vehicle attached to another vehicle. Recovery is when a vehicle has to be retrieved or restored in some way. For example, recovery could mean that a tractor tipped over in a field and needs to be turned right side up again. Recovery could be a tractor-trailer that has slipped off the side of a steep ledge and needs to be returned to the roadway. Towing can involve relocating a vehicle to an entirely new location either because of mechanical issues or otherwise.
