Stay Safe While Towing

Knowing how to stay safe when you're towing a vehicle is so very important for many reasons. No one wants to cause an accident that could potentially harm themselves or others. So, before you tow, there are some things to keep in mind.

First, always make sure your vehicle is rated high enough to tow the weight of the item being towed. Next, perform a thorough safety inspection before you begin. This should include but not limited to: Making sure your hitch is the correct size, loading the trailer as evenly as possible, inflating the tires to the recommended pressure on both your vehicle and the trailer and making sure to double check that you have working brake lights and turn signals before you get on the road.

If you follow these simple tips and get your vehicle checked out by a service professional at Stivers Lincoln in Montgomery to make sure it is safe for towing, you should be able to travel safely to whatever destination you choose.
