It is important you go through a towing safety checklist now to avoid any potential trouble when you are on the road.

  • Make certain the trailer hitch you are using is going to be able to handle the load. Get familiar with the towing and payload capacity of your vehicle first before assuming it can pull the weight.
  • Be sure that the mirrors are adjusted accordingly so you can easily see around the vehicles at all times.
  • Distribute all the weight on the trailer evenly so that there is no chance of the vehicles tipping over as you go around any curves.
  • Before you roll out on the highway, take the time to check the tire pressure of your vehicle and the trailer so you can get air now if needed.

Bring your vehicle in to our service center at Sterling Kia of Lafayette so we make certain it is in good shape to tow another vehicle.
