The trouble with towing

Car transportationFor the past several decades, we have visited every part of the UK and parts of Europe to transport cars for their owners. Some have rare vintage models. As a result, they don’t want to put their cars in danger when they have to move. What we do is offer them a safer alternative in the form of our car transportation service.

When they need to move a car, people often consider towing as an option. However, this comes with a fair number of risks. To give you a better idea of what you are in for here, we are going to discuss some of the issues.

Mismatched gear

One of the problems comes in the form of mismatched equipment. When someone tows a car, they have to use the right gear. It is often the case that it does not properly match up. This can cause major issues on the road. For instance, if your towing rig exceeds the max weight it can handle, there will be a greater risk of accidents.


Prior to hitting the road, people must think about the height, width, and length of what they are towing. Increasing the size of the vehicle you are towing will impact visibility. This plays a critical part in making basic manoeuvres. That includes changing lanes, backing up, and making turns. With limitations, transporting a car will be harder. Instead, you should rely on our top tier car transportation service if you need a safe solution.

Acceleration and speeding

When someone tows a heavy load, the vehicle they are using has larger mass. Therefore, you will need to handle a motor that has more inertia and momentum than usual. Momentum is the mass in motion. If there is an increase in speed or mass, there will be more momentum. Inertia is the aptness for something with mass to endure a change to its state of motion. The larger an object is, the more it can resist change, and cars are quite large. As a result, it requires more energy to get a huge object to stop or start moving.


As we said above, towing a load means your towing motor has higher momentum and inertia. Consequently, your vehicle’s brakes are going to have to work doubly hard to bring you to a stop. The extra mass means you will need more space to come to a halt.
