The tow truck uses two pivoting arms that go under the tires of the driving axle and lift them off the ground. The other two wheels remain on the ground.
The tow truck uses metal cables with hooks on the ends. These hooks wrap around parts of the frame or suspension, and the cables lift that end of the vehicle off the ground. Attempting this method of towing can seriously damage the vehicle''s suspension and body.
If the vehicle cannot be transported by a flat-bed truck, it should be towed by lifting the wheels of the driving axle off the ground. In this case, the following procedure should be taken :
