In the world of car and truck driving, towing might not be something that you have ever actually done yourself, but it is still something that people should have a general awareness and knowledge of, just in case they ever find themselves in a situation where towing might be needed. Here at Mick’s Towing Service, we have all of the information and answers that you need in order to be fully clued up on everything towing related. The more you know, the more confident you will feel when out on the road in case of an emergency situation. Here are answers to three of the most common questions about towing on the Gold Coast.
Are there extra service needs for a vehicle that frequently tows?
If you do tend to tow a lot, it doesn’t automatically mean that you need to pay for extra services on your vehicle. If you follow the guidelines for weight and are a responsible driver when towing, then you shouldn’t have any extra problems compared to a non-towing car. Usually, the only difference that you might experience is having to get your fluids changed slightly sooner than normal.
Can diesel vehicles tow?
Yes, diesel vehicles can participate in towing, but the facts are that diesel engines do not have the same high horsepower figures that gas petrol engines do, and this results in making the process a tougher one. On the other hand, however, they do offer significant torque, which can be good for towing with power low in the rev range.
Do you need to weigh your total haul?
To get a better idea of what you are towing and the kind of power that you need, any retailer that sells large trailers or RVs will have their own scale that you can use to get an exact figure. When towing in a non-emergency situation, it is helpful to know what kind of cargo weight you are dealing with.
