Handy Towing Tips Before Heading Out

Before heading out to haul equipment from Plymouth to Minnetonka, check out these helpful towing tips:

  • Double-check to ensure that your truck and trailer’s tires are all properly inflated.
  • Ensure the items you’re towing are fully secured.
  • Leave extra distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you since you’ll need more time to stop with a trailer attached.
  • Be extra aware of your surroundings when merging on the highway or changing lanes (remember to use BLIS® to your advantage!).
