Chappelle’s Towing LLC offers towing services throughout the Greater Clark County, WA area. We opened in Vancouver in 1981 and recently added a new location in Battle Ground. We have a total of eight tow trucks between our locations. Our skilled vehicle recovery specialists use state of the art equipment to provide the best towing services this region has to offer. We guarantee 24-hour damage free towing, and we pride ourselves on the highest level of customer service whether you reach our dispatch team or deal directly with one of our drivers.
For recovery purposes, we traditionally use our integrated boom/wheel-lift tow trucks. These tow trucks have attached cables that are 100-150 feet long, which help us winch and recover vehicles. The use of the adjustable boom winch is to recover vehicles from a ditch, over an embankment, or any place the vehicle cannot be safely reached by backing up. Depending on the truck, the boom itself can lift between 10-14 tons, which helps us recover the vehicle in some of the most difficult angles.
The wheel-lift procedure evolved from the hook and chain technology to produce a large metal yoke that can be fitted under the front or rear wheels to cradle them, drawing the front or rear end of the vehicle clear of the ground by a pneumatic or hydraulic hoist so it can be towed. This apparatus generally picks up the drive wheels of the vehicle touching only the tires.
Our “Self Loader” boom/wheel-lift tow trucks have controls for the apparatus inside the cab of the tow truck to make quick pickup possible without the inconvenience of exiting the truck to hook up the vehicle.
For transporting purposes we use our flatbed tow trucks which have platforms with no sides or stakes. These tow trucks have 50 foot long attached cables which help us pull vehicles up. This type of tow truck works well for hauling large or unconventionally-shaped objects.
When someone calls our offices, all requests for service are placed through our dispatchers. We communicate with tow truck drivers via mobile radio or wireless telephone equipment. Recent technology includes the use of GPS and onboard wireless equipment to dispatch drivers via an LCD screen receiver.
