    For most people, their car is the second greatest investment they make (after their home), so you definitely want a tow truck company who understands and appreciates the importance and value of your car. One way our St. Paul towing company does this is by using a flatbed tow truck. The flatbed tow truck is one of the three types of tow trucks used by tow truck operators. The sling tow truck, the one with the hook and chain, are no longer used as often, except to tow damaged vehicles that no longer have back or front wheels — or those damaged cars with steel bumpers (which are fewer and fewer every year). The reason some St. Paul towing companies decreased the use of the sling tow truck is because they scratch or damage the car from having to wrap a chain around the frame or axle of the car. The well known website, "HowStuffWorks" even says, “Cars equipped with all-wheel drive cannot be towed with a sling, since it can cause problems with the car’s drivetrain.”
