Beach Towing

Countrywide Towing & Transport has the skills, know-how, and cutting-edge technology to transport any size vehicle from door to door. It doesn\’t matter whether it\’s for an emergency failure, truck evacuation, a special initiative, or a large business show or event. There can be no such thing as a minor or major move. Beach Towing offers professional and inexpensive towing services in the Sydney Metropolitan area and other parts of Australia. They provide excellent support and respond quickly. When the truck is being pulled, people take great care of it. They do it all, from traffic crash towing and off-road rescue to cleaning up and replacing old, unregistered, and discarded vehicles.  

Beach Towing: 

If people have never driven on the beach before, it can be intimidating. Perhaps it\’s the videos of stranded cars as the incoming tide flows through them. Scary if those who add a camper trailer or caravan! 

But it doesn\’t have to be that way if people exercise caution and employ a few \”smarts.\”

Let\’s admit it: cruising for miles down a wild beach is just as free-spirited as it comes on soil, and with potentially thousands of kilometres of driveable sand in Australia, it\’s a luxury one shouldn\’t pass up if they have a 4WD vehicle with a camper van or caravan in tow.

  • About Ready

When visitors are in soft sand, having good ground clearance under the tow car and towed trailer is extremely beneficial.

In certain industrial faux-4WDs that use plastic undertrays for aerodynamic reasons or have protruding brake cooling ducts, this may be a bigger disadvantage than one would expect. Although these are fine on the road, they will transform into sand scoops on the beach, and the lower one stands, the more sand one scoops… which gets into the brakes, perhaps clogging the transmission breather, and so on. 

  • Day and the tides

Here are a few basic guidelines. Where possible, fly as early in the morning as possible and as close to low tide as possible. Cool, moist sand is denser and would not allow the car to dig in like fluffy, hot sand that must be navigated farther up the beach while travelling during the day at high waves. People should monitor tide times on their phones in most places, just make sure they are as close to where they would be travelling as possible, as they differ up the coast. Another excuse to leave early is that if a person gets stranded, individuals have a better chance of getting assistance from passing travellers! 

  • The rapidity of Beach Tow: 

When it comes to pace, it\’s important to follow posted speed limits on the beach just as much as on the highway for safety reasons, because other beachgoers can be unreliable but in the absence of signs, 70-80 km/h is usually as fast as people can ever go on hard sand. One justification is to prevent overheating the deflated tyres, but a better reason is to give yourself enough time to stop if things change suddenly. Anybody high on Fraser Island\’s beach will know how freshwater inlets would often cause sand erosion, leaving a metre deep cleavage in the sand that no one wants to fall into!

Towing Capacity:

Towing capability is a measurement that describes the maximum weight of a trailer that a vehicle can pull that can be expressed in pounds or kilogrammes. Some countries demand that signs showing the maximum trailer weight (and, in some situations, length) be placed near the coupling unit on trucks and buses. Due to cooling system limitations, towing capability can be less than specified.
