Wheel Lift Towing
Wheel Lift Towing trucks are an excellent option for towing vehicles with low or no ground clearance. These types of tow trucks are easy to maneuver and fit in tight parking structures. They can also tow cars in the middle of traffic. When using a wheel dolly to tow a vehicle, soft straps are placed around the wheels to prevent damage to the rims and limit the car from moving. A wheel lift tow truck may be a better choice for some cars with four-wheel drive.
A wheel lift is an excellent solution for towing vehicles with low-riding heights and wheels. These lifts can be adjusted to the appropriate height for a wide range of situations. First, the wheel lift should be lowered so it makes contact with the front tires. Next, the L-arm should be lowered so that the wheel stays in place. The L-arm is used to lock the wheel in place. Once the L-arm is locked in place, the vehicle is ready to be towed.

However, you can easily remove the lift by removing the frame from the truck. You can then place your vehicle on top.
