The cost of heavy towing on the Gold Coast varies depending on a variety of factors:

  • Where you have broken down — The further we have to travel from a depot the higher the cost will be
  • How big the vehicle is that needs towing — The larger the tow truck you require the higher the cost will be
  • Whether you need specialised equipment — If the vehicle has rolled over or become stuck and requires recovery then the cost will be higher

Heavy towing is generally considered anything above 25 tons. Truck towing on the Gold Coast is one of our most common heavy tow requests, although we also deal with coaches, road trains and hauling construction machinery. For reference, the average ute only weighs 3 tons, and the average loaded bus weighs around 20, so heavy towing is typically needed for dump trucks and loaded trailers. If you think you need truck towing on the Gold Coast or bus towing in Toowoomba then get in touch. We’ll be happy to confirm whether you need a heavy tow truck or something smaller.

Our heavy-duty tow trucks are capable of pulling up to 150 tons of weight. That means whether you have a broken-down caravan, dump truck, or even something as heavy as a b-double or fully loaded road train, Barnes Auto Co can help with both light and heavy towing on the Gold Coast. Just get in touch online or by phone at (07) 3274 1111 and we’ll help, whether it’s towing on the Gold Coast, towing in Coopers Plains, or anywhere else within our vast service area.
