Cargo Weight Distribution and Towing Safety

If your vehicle is equipped with a towing hitch, then it has the ability to hook up to a compatible trailer. Trailers allow your car to comfortably tow heavy loads for long distances.

Before you embark on long trips, it is important for you to secure your trailer-loads properly. Poorly secured loads can fall from moving trailers and cause damage to other vehicles and their occupants.

To prevent this from happening, always load the heaviest objects onto the trailer first. As you do so, make sure that you distribute the weight evenly around the trailer. After you load and secure the heavy objects, you can stack lighter objects onto this base.

In addition to these steps, you should have your tow-hitches and other hardware regularly inspected by professionals.
