Whether you are towing for work or for pleasure, it is important to always take extra care to ensure that you do it safely. An accident while towing can be a very negative experience, and whether it is due to negligence or equipment failure, it is never something that you will want to have to deal with. That is why it important to make sure that your vehicle and trailer are in good enough shape to tow by getting proper car repair and maintenance, and that you know what you are doing.

For starters, you will want to make sure that the equipment is in good working order. Always check and make sure that all of the trailer lights work properly before you leave, taking special notice of the turn signals. You will also want to make sure that the wheel bearings are properly lubed as well. This will help make sure that they don't heat up too much during use. Finally, make sure that the vehicle that you are pulling the trailer with is in good working order, especially the engine oil, transmission, and most importantly, your brakes.

So bring your towing vehicle to our service department here at Volvo of Savannah before you leave and make sure that it is ready for towing safely.
