Electric Car Towing in the Twin Cities

Did you know that towing an electric vehicle requires specialized training? Not all towing operators are able to tow electric vehicles as the process is not the same as towing a regular car.

Our towing operators have completed in-house electric car towing training as well as training directly from electric car manufacturers. All of our light duty tow truck operators have received their Tesla Towing Qualification after a thorough training program with Tesla! This qualification ensures that no damage will be made to your vehicle during the towing process.

Towing an Electric Car

Similar to a gas-powered car, you can need a tow for your electric car for a wide variety of reasons. Whether you’ve ran out of charge or have a flat tire, you’re going to want to ensure that you choose the right towing company for your electric vehicle.

Twin Cities Transport and Recovery can tow a wide variety of electric and hybrid vehicles. Whether you need to bring it to the dealership for repairs or want to get your vehicle to a nearby charging station, we’ll work with you to make sure that all your needs are met.

How to Tow an Electric Car

When it comes to towing electric vehicles, flatbed tow trucks are your new best friend! If you attempt to tow your electric vehicle using a traditional wheel-lift tow truck, you’re looking at quite the expensive repair fee!

Why is that? Using a wheel-lift tow truck means that two of your wheels will be continuously spinning. While this is no issue for a gas-powered car, it can cause significant battery damage as the turning wheels are generating power but the power is not being used.

Using a flatbed tow truck eliminates this issue as all wheels are fixed in place throughout the tow.

Twin Cities Transport & Recovery has over 100 trucks in our fleet, ensuring that we will always have a tow truck near you.
