You need to find someone to help you tow your car back to where the city is so that you can find a mechanic to help you out with the fixes. Before you consider hiring a tow car to help you, make sure you consider a number of tips. Check the article below if you want to know more about towing.
Make sure that the guy you hire has all the important items to tow your car carefully.
You have to make sure that you have the right things for your vehicle to be towed safely. Make sure you get the tow rope right. You need not worry about the price because tow ropes are cheap and can be bought in local stores and gas stations. You can also use a chain for towing. You do not want to buy poor quality tow ropes because they could break and risk causing accidents. Once you have the rope ready, make sure you attach it right on the towing eyes of your car.
Make sure that you leave at least twelve feet of space between the two cars. This is to make sure you have enough space to hit the brakes and other road users will also see that you are being towed. You need to make sure that your tow rope is not the same color as the tarmac.
You also need a sign as well to make sure that people know you are being towed. You can basically use any material that you can write on; a piece of paper is already good enough. Just write “being towed’ in bigger letters so that the people can see it right away to avoid problems. This is to tell the other drivers that you are being towed so that they wont wonder and get annoyed on why you are driving so slowly.
Make sure that your towing driver knows what he is doing.
You have to keep it slow if you are the one towing the car because it is going to be dangerous to move fast with a broken down car. Starting off gently and steady is going to be important because you do not want to abruptly yank in the chain or rope because it might break. It is important to slow down your speed gently when changing directions because moving too fast on turns will throw the towed car out of the road. The rope could break and your vehicle could hit someone. There are multiple possibilities if the rope breaks and you are not going to like it. Be careful when it comes to towing cars, stop right away if things go wrong.
