A lot of things create the need of auto towing. Is it a coach that needs to be towed, the weight of which is heavier than the car? Are the brakes of the vehicle capable of stopping the car properly? The braking system is one of the major factors that contribute to the need of auto towing as these systems make the use of the electric impulse which is generated in the tow’s brakes of the car, similarly the breakaway brakes work on the same function in which the application of the tow’s brakes in the car takes place if it gets detached from the lead car. I always take these important considerations into account prior to moving into auto towing. It is also very pivotal to perform some practice of auto towing before taking the caravan for it.
Furthermore, what I have experienced is that driving a towed car is totally a different scenario from normal driving or routine driving and many people pretend to be able to handle the situation when the need arises, but this is not the case in reality, rather it really needs some practice especially on turning, taking back and braking. Parking lots, for this purpose, are a good option of practicing these things.
One also needs to ponder over which method of auto towing best suits him or her. However, there are three common ways in which auto towing can be done and they are flatbed towing, flat towing and two-wheel towing. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages and they depend on the need and affordability of the owner of the vehicle which needs to be towed. Some of the options cause the disconnection of the parts of the car before it is taken out on the road, while others need the special type of attachments. I would, in this way, go to guide in deciding which auto towing method works well, based on my experience.
