Heavy Duty Towing at night in Nashville, TN

The Guide to Safe Heavy-Duty Towing

With the responsibilities of the holiday season looming near, the last thing you want is for your heavy-duty truck to get stuck somewhere with inclement weather and not knowing what to do next. Special machinery and expertise are necessary. Especially for you to get out of a situation that may not be so ideal. With all heavy-duty towing experiences, safety should be your top priority. However, you may also want a few other questions answered before calling the right towing company. 

How Can I Prevent Any Heavy-Duty Towing Binds From Happening To Me This Holiday Season?

  • Make sure your tow equipment is capable of handling the load! It is very likely to get involved in an accident when your vehicle cannot control your cargo. Checking your vehicle’s manual for its towing capacity, gross combination weight rating, and payload will save you a lot of money and heartache down the road. 
  • Make sure any required maintenance on your vehicle is up-to-date! Naturally, towing puts a lot of stress on your vehicle, so if you want a smooth tow, you should prioritize your vehicle’s regular maintenance. This includes changing the oil and filter when necessary. Also, checking the brakes and making sure fluid isn’t draining from them. Lastly, topping off the coolant. 
  • No matter what vehicle you drive, staying alert and awake is vital! Some ways to do this include drinking a cup of coffee, pulling over somewhere to take a 20-minute nap as soon as you are able, and doing a 20-minute workout before leaving the house.
