Chains For Towing

Have you ever had to have your car towed? I have an older car and when I first got it, I was having problems with it. It would break down on the road and I would have to be towed. I remember the first time it was towed; the person just used a chain because it was only a short distance to the repair shop.

Well this got me interested in learning more about chains, especially those use for lifting and towing. One thing I noticed about this particular repair shop was that they had chains that they used for lifting. Being a woman, these things were really not familiar with me, but my husband says, you can never stop learning. He really wants me to know things, especially when it comes to the car.

    Hi, I would suggest that you let the mechanic overhaul the engine of your car. Cars that breakdown easily can be quite problematic, especially if you travel at night.

    I had the misfortune of experiencing my old SUV conking out in the middle of the intersection. And believe me, I must have prayed to all the angels and saints to make the old chunk of metal crank up one more time so I could drive it to the curb. And it started and that was it. I never had the chance to drive it again πŸ™

    Good thing, there were numerous towing companies around so I just had it towed. And yes, I noticed they used some sturdy and chunky looking chains connected to a machine that pulls out the vehicles.

    It pays to have a towing company’s number saved in your phone, just in case πŸ˜‰
