Towing Service Moves 2 RTVs for Inauguration

Towing Service Team from Lynchburg Make the Journey to the Capital


It’s not every day that a towing service team gets to play a part in a presidential inauguration! Bee Line Transport was entrusted with transporting two Kubota RTVs to Washington, DC, prior to the inauguration of President Biden. 

RTV is short for rough terrain vehicle. Unlike the more familiar ATVs which are driven using handlebars, RTVs have a steering wheel similar to a car. If we were planning as large of an event as an inauguration, we would be more than happy to have some RTVs on hand to carry the heavy stuff and keep us on schedule! 

The team loaded the RTVs onto a rollback truck and hit the road for their epic 188 mile road trip to our nation’s capital. They made sure to arrive much earlier than requested as the security around Capitol Hill was heightened prior to the inauguration. In order for the Bee Line towing service team to deliver the vehicles to their destination, they had to pass thorough security checks. Thankfully, they passed with flying colors! 

It was an honor to contribute, even in such a small way, to the presidential inauguration.
