Towing Guide Checklist to Avoid Roadside Emergencies

Take a few extra minutes before towing a vehicle to go over this safety checklist to ensure you limit the chances of things going wrong.

  • Have someone stand behind the trailer and see if all the lights are in working order on your vehicles.
  • Once the vehicle is safely secured on the trailer, take a few minutes to check the air pressure in all the tires.
  • Always know the limit of your trailer hitch and upgrade if you feel the weight is too close to that number.
  • Be certain you distribute the weight on the trailer on each side so the trailer is not going to tip when you take turns.
  • Adjust the side mirrors to go around the trailer, attach blind-spot mirrors if needed to increase your field of visibility.

Don't tow another vehicle until you stop by Southgate Lincoln and we can make certain your vehicle is ready to roll.
