Preparing for a road trip can be fun and exciting, but there is no ideal time for a road trip. You don’t have to prepare a lot to have a worry-free journey on the road. However, unforeseen things may happen, and you may end up with car towing. You can avoid these things by making the necessary arrangements. Here are some car tips for long your long road trip.

Carefully plan your trip

Review your route before you leave. You should be cautious of the roads’ condition, including roadworks you might encounter on your trip. Moreover, you should guarantee that the route you will take will less likely have heavy traffic.

Do not procrastinate

You may encounter problems in your car that you have not taken into consideration prior or accidentally leave essential things. Planning a week or two before your trip will secure less chance of you forgetting something in a rush to get ready.

Clean your car before your trip

It is very much comfortable to be riding a clean and organised car. Moreover, there is nothing more annoying than accumulated junk. It is better to have your car cleaned before your trip for a mad-free trip.

Check the condition of your car

Can you imagine you and your family on the side of the road waiting for a tow car just because you did not have your vehicle inspected? Have your engine oil, coolant, and windscreen washer reservoir checked. Make sure that they are in tiptop condition for a long journey ahead to avoid car towing.

Ensure your tyres are in tiptop shape

You should examine uneven wear, cuts, or even embedded nails that could cause punctures. If even after inspection, you happen to still have problems with your tyres on your trip, having a spare tyre in your trunk would be of great help.

Have plenty of entertainment options

Although the car radio can already come in handy, there are some locations where there are no radio signals. It is not so bad to have your phone packed with backup options to keep you entertained over the long hours of driving.

Safely pack your belongings and everything else

You should not burden yourself into fitting unnecessary things in your trunk. For a safe trip, make sure you are aware of the maximum weight your car can carry, including your belongings. Carefully pack them and assure that there are no loose items that can be dangerous flying weapons.

Always have excess oil

Aside from your belongings, having excess oil is a must. To avoid a possible tow car ruining your trip, top up your engine and make sure that extra engine oil is of hand’s reach.

For an out-of-sight tow car trip, make the necessary arrangements to have a safe journey. You should enjoy your well-planned trip with no problems if you make suitable arrangements.

However if you do find your self on the side of the road –there is no need to panic. You can call Gardenstate Towing on (03) 9429 1234 for some roadside assistance or a tow.

Quick. Competent. Must negative reviews seem to be from people who have been pinged parked in clearways - expensive consequences.

I got towing organised via an insurance company. Tow came to Montmorency on time and got the car pulled up safely and efficiently to the mechanic. Five stars for the driver.

We needed to tow our Porsche 997.2 Carrera from the depths of our apartment carpark to Porsche Centre Melbourne. GT used a low rise unit operated by Tom to enter the carpark and collect our cherished vehicle. Tom's executed the tow with great skill and performed a flawless job. I would not hesitate to use GT and Tom for this task again - hopefully will never need to!

Our car was stuck in one of the steepest and angled driveways that barely had room for one car. Tom was amazing and really took the time to technically work it out and incredibly got the car out unscathed! Very impressed and grateful for the help we were given today, would highly recommend Tom, he’s a legend!
