In this incident, on January 12, 2019, Team Pro-Enviro was called to Kent, WA, to help with an emergency cargo reloading. Team Pro-Tow also came to help with the transport back to a nearby trucking terminal.
Using a heavy-duty crane-style wrecker, specialty Landoll semi-trailer and a forklift, our team swiftly and safely handled the cargo recovery. With minimal impact, business returned to normal once again and this incident in Kent was cleared.
As incidents like this show, proper cargo loading is essential to a safe trip. In this case, our team arrived in time to help reload the cargo without any serious incident. However, if a cargo shift happens on the road, it can result in spilled cargo, an accident, and potential injury.
When loading cargo, always load the cargo evenly across the trailer to avoid creating heavy spots or imbalance. Utilize straps and tie-downs to keep the cargo in place, and don’t be tempted to overload. Overloading invites the risk of harder turns, handling difficulties, and even brake failure if the weight is too much.
If you do find yourself with cargo trouble and need a load shift or reload support, call Pro-Enviro. As a division of Pro-Tow 24-hour towing, we specialize in recovering and cleaning motor vehicle fluid spills, but we also handle load shift, cargo recovery and cargo reloading.

And, just like this incident, we will get you back on the road and track with as little delay as possible. Our operators are fully trained, experienced, and knowledgeable and know what equipment to bring to get the job done quickly and professionally.
