When using flatbed towing, vehicles are placed on the ramp of the flatbed to rest while it is being moved from one location to another.

Suitable for Different Situations
Flatbed towing is important for towing vehicles that are difficult to be lifted up. A flatbed tow truck can be used for moving vehicles of various types from one location to another. When the ramp or platform is lowered, the vehicle can be loaded on the ramp or platform. When placed in such position, a winch will then pull it up. Heavier vehicles or machinery will require more effort to be loaded up on the ramp or platform.
Pulling a damaged vehicle up a flatbed can be easier because the towing operator just needs to drive the vehicle onto the platform and secure it tightly onto the flatbed with straps. Other towing methods may require removing the drive shaft of a vehicle to avoid transmission damage. This will take more time and more work in completing the same task. However, other methods of towing will be more feasible and efficient depending on the circumstances.
When towing a vehicle using a flatbed, the wheels of the towed vehicle are lifted off from the ground. This limits any damages that may occur onto the towed vehicle. A flatbed tow truck is safer by offering fewer damage risks.
