Towing Service in Canton Provides Winter Weather Preparedness

Canton Township, MI – Canton Towing (, a locally owned and operated towing service in Canton, receives more than double the normal volume of daily calls during the winter weather. Most of the calls are due to improper preparation and vehicular maintenance.

The representative of Canton Towing wants to help drivers avoid the inconvenience, cost and danger of being stranded during the winter months. “If drivers would carefully inspect their vehicles before the snow starts to fly,” Canton said, “most people would avoid the need for towing services. Winter provides a unique danger for being stranded on the side of the road, and puts many people at risk.”

Winter Weather Preparedness

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has developed a cold weather driving checklist for ensuring drivers are ready for the cold weather. Here are a few of the items that should be checked before the bitter temperatures and snow hit.

Tip #1. Check The Tires – Ensure you have the proper amount of tread, the right tire design, and the proper amount of air in each tire. Any of these causes vehicles to lose the right amount of traction in slippery conditions.

Tip #2. Check the Battery – Batteries should be in good working order, that it is not nearing the end of their service life, and have the proper cold cranking amps for the expected temperatures. Dead batteries are the leading reason why cars fail to start during the winter months.

Tip #3. Check the Cooling System – Not only will this ensure the inside of the car is heated properly, but it also ensures the engine block and radiator do not crack during the cold temperatures. Improperly blended coolant can lead to unexpected cooling system failures due to the extreme changes in temperature while the car is in operation.

Tip #4. Check the Windshield Wipers and Fluid – Dirty windshields are a leading cause for accidents, usually caused by either worn or insufficient windshield wipers or low or frozen windshield wiper fluid. Windshield wiper fluid should be winter-ready, with a low freezing temperature, and the pump should be functioning correctly.

Finally, drivers should be sure to have the number of a trusted Wayne County tow truck service in the event something unavoidable happens and a tow is required. The Canton Towing representative concluded, “Choosing your own towing service ensures drivers trust who shows up, that they will not be left wondering when the truck will arrive, and that they will not be price gouged during hectic periods. We’re glad to provide this service to drivers across Canton and surrounding areas.”
