• Sling or hook and chain is the oldest and least used tow trucks nowadays. Partly because there are new top-notch tow vehicles that can do the job. Also due to the fact that the sling is not the best option for car towing as it can do some serious damage to the car in the process of transportation. No matter, it works great for the transportation of junk cars or those after major accidents.
• Wheel-lift can boast about being a better quality than the sling, no matter that it is very similar to it. However, it is a bit modernized by a metal yoke instead if a hook and chain. The yoke is placed under the car, somewhere in the area of either front or rear wheels. It gives the wheel-lift absolute control of a car.
