Towing Inquiry Sign In

Has anyone ever had their car or pickup truck towed using chain, rope, or strap? If so, which do you recommend using, and how far did you have to be towed?

That is an unsafe and illegal method of towing. Use the tow truck.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

HT is correct . Long time ago in rual areas you could get away with it. It was always very dangerous . I was nearly killed doing it more than 20 years ago.Times and laws have changed . Invest in a automotive safety club ,ie AAA , They are worth it .

True - invest in a towing club - I do and can get a vehicle out on my own if just stuck but not more than that,
