How Do You Use a Tow Truck Dollie?

If you have ever been in a situation where you need to move a vehicle from one location to another, using a tow truck dolly is likely the best solution. A tow truck dolly is a device that attaches to the back of the vehicle and allows it to be towed safely and securely. There are many different types of dollies available, but they all essentially work in the same way.

To use a tow truck dolly, you will first need to attach it firmly to the back of the vehicle. This can typically be done by securing it in place with straps or chains.

It’s important to make sure that everything is secure and properly attached before attempting to tow the vehicle. Once everything is secured, you can then begin towing the vehicle with your tow truck.

When driving your tow truck, it’s important to keep an eye on the dolly at all times. If there are any signs that it might not be securely attached, you should stop immediately and check it again. Once you have reached your destination, you will need to detach the dolly from the back of the vehicle and secure it to your tow truck so that you can transport it back home.


Using a tow truck dolly is an effective way of safely transporting vehicles from one location to another. It’s important that everything is securely attached before attempting any movement, and that any signs of instability are checked for during transit. Once at your destination, make sure that you detach the dolly from both vehicles and secure it appropriately for transport back home.
