Today’s article is based on some lessons learned from having to call for a tow truck on I485 outside of Charlotte, NC. Thanks to the guys from Top Dogz Towing Company for their service and their advice in putting this article together.
For Food Truck owners, there’s basically two reasons why one might need to tow a food truck. The first, and possibly most obvious reason is because the food truck you own is not self-propelled (ie: it’s built on a towable trailer), and second is your food truck has broken down. As the owner of a converted 1971 VW Bus, I’ve had to opt for the latter more time than I care to admit, and from the countless food truck owner-operators I’ve met over the years, that seem to be the rule rather than the exception.
