Important Towing Tips to Make the Ride Much Safer

Whether you are towing a vehicle or a boat, the same safety rules apply. Make the mistake of cutting corners, and you put everyone on the roads in danger.

Before towing, walk around the vehicle and make certain the brake lights are all working. Disconnected wires could cause a rear-end collision when other drivers were not aware you were coming to a stop.

Be sure that you have the right mirrors and they are properly adjusted so that you can see all the way around both sides of the object that you are towing behind your vehicle. When you see a turn coming up, slow down the vehicle and take the turn as slowly as possible to avoid the towed vehicle from flipping.

Be sure the trailer hitch installed can handle the load. Our family at West Herr Ford of Amherst wanted to pass on these towing safety tips to our growing customer base. Let our friendly Ford service team have a look at your vehicle to help you tow properly this season.
