Technological Towing Advancements That Help Make The Towing Process Easier
Technological advancements in towing have made towing operations, smoother, more secure, and more reliable through the years. These advancements have helped provide solutions to problems usually encountered while the tow vehicle is hauling a vehicle on the road, such as the vehicle unlatching from the tow vehicle, the brake lights between the tow vehicle and trailer not being in sync, and the tow truck driver being unaware of what’s happening to the vehicle that’s being towed.
Even more importantly, these technological advancements prevent problems from even occurring and give peace of mind to both the tow truck driver and the customer. Some of the newest equipment and state of the art technologies manufactured by Valley and which are being employed by towing companies today will be discussed in detail.
We think that it is important for consumers to be more informed about towing technologies—once you know about the new technologies, it’ll be easier for you to make decisions for your vehicle and which towing company to call in case you ever need a service. Furthermore, basic knowledge on these technologies can come in handy in case of emergencies.
Smart Trailer Wireless Lightning Monitor
While this device may sound completely fancy, its usefulness is quite simple and ingenious. It allows for easy detection of malfunctioning lights, if any, from the vehicle being towed, and tells the tow truck driver specifically which light is malfunctioning (tail light, brake light, etc.) It’s wireless so it doesn’t provide any distractions and quite compact.
Cargo Door Lock
Cargo door locks are perfect for enclosed trailers and make any trailer virtually theft-proof. Aside from being really heavy duty, these locks operate in much the same way regular locks do, and can be opened using a key.
Investing in quality LED lights go a long way, especially when long distances are being covered by a towing service. LED lights have longer battery life, give brighter light that will make the towing and towed vehicle visible even from a distance, and are more durable and weather-resistant.
Keyed Alike Trailer Lock Set
Sometimes, appearances can be good thief deterrents, and trailer lock sets can easily intimidate anyone trying to detach the towed vehicle. These trailer lock sets come in handy when towing services are conducted in more congested, busy cities, and what’s good about Valley’s lock sets is they can be opened using a single key. Safekeeping won’t even be a problem; so is installation of these set of locks.
