Vehicle Towing Tips

Before towing in any vehicle, know the load limit of the vehicle performing the towing and do not exceed the weight or you may need to get your vehicle into a trusted car repair and maintenance facility sooner than later. Have the appropriate trailer hitch installed on your vehicle. In the event of pulling a trailer, make sure the trailer's brake and tail lights are in working order. When loading a cargo trailer, make sure that the weight is distributed evenly across the trailer bed. Before entering the roadway, practice turning and backing the load to gain experience.
