Motorcycle Towing/Transport

                                 

We always take great care and consideration of the following when

towing/transporting your motorcycle.

Use a Suitable Tow Vehicle: Ensure that the vehicle you'll be using to tow the motorcycle is appropriate for the task. It should have sufficient towing capacity and be equipped with a proper hitch or towing system.

Choose the Right Tow Equipment: There are different options for towing a motorcycle, depending on your specific situation. Here are a few common methods:

a. Flatbed Trailer: Using a flatbed trailer is one of the safest and most secure methods of towing a motorcycle. Ensure that the trailer is in good condition, properly attached to the tow vehicle, and has secure tie-down points to keep the motorcycle stable during transport.

b. Motorcycle Trailer: Specifically designed motorcycle trailers are available that provide a dedicated platform for transporting motorcycles. These trailers often have built-in ramps and wheel chocks to secure the bike properly.

c. Tow Bar or Motorcycle Carrier: Some tow vehicles can be equipped with tow bars or motorcycle carriers that attach to the rear of the vehicle. These carriers provide a stable platform for the motorcycle and keep it off the ground during transport.

Use High-Quality Straps: Invest in high-quality, non-elastic straps designed for securing motorcycles. Avoid using ropes or bungee cords as they can cause damage or come loose.

b. Attach the Straps: Securely attach the straps to sturdy points on the motorcycle, such as the handlebars, frame, or footpegs. Avoid attaching them to fragile or easily damaged components.

c. Balance and Position: Ensure that the motorcycle is positioned properly on the trailer or carrier to maintain balance. Distribute the weight evenly, keeping in mind the weight limits and recommendations for the specific towing equipment you are using.

Check and Double-Check: Before towing, thoroughly check all connections, straps, and attachments to ensure they are secure. Give each strap a firm tug to confirm that it is tight and won't come loose during transport.

Drive with Caution: When towing a motorcycle, drive attentively and cautiously. Accelerate and decelerate gradually, avoiding sudden movements that could cause the motorcycle to shift or tip. Keep a safe distance from other vehicles and be mindful of the additional length and weight you are towing.

We Provide Critical Towing Services - Whiteford, MD

                                


George's Custom Towing plays a critical role in ensuring the safety, mobility, and 

convenience of drivers on the roads. Our presence helps in maintaining 

traffic flow, providing emergency assistance,

 and offering a reliable solution when vehicles encounter problems or accidents.


Everyday we provide:

Roadside Assistance: Towing services provide essential roadside assistance to drivers who experience vehicle breakdowns or accidents. When a vehicle becomes immobile due to mechanical failure, a flat tire, an empty fuel tank, or any other issue, a towing service is needed to transport the vehicle to a repair shop or a safe location.


Traffic Flow and Safety: When a vehicle breaks down or is involved in an accident on a busy road or highway, it can obstruct traffic and create potential hazards. Towing services help in quickly removing disabled or damaged vehicles from the roadway, ensuring smooth traffic flow and reducing the risk of secondary accidents.


Vehicle Recovery: Towing services are equipped with specialized equipment and expertise to recover vehicles from challenging situations. This includes retrieving vehicles from ditches, water bodies, steep slopes, or off-road areas. Their ability to handle vehicle recovery safely is vital in situations where regular vehicles or drivers may not be equipped to do so.


Peace of Mind: Knowing that a reliable towing service is available provides peace of mind to drivers. It offers reassurance that help is just a phone call away in case of unexpected vehicle problems or emergencies. This confidence encourages people to travel with the knowledge that assistance is readily accessible.


Support for Businesses: Towing services also provide support to various businesses, such as car rental agencies, car dealerships, and parking facilities. They assist in relocating or removing improperly parked or unauthorized vehicles, enforcing parking regulations, and ensuring the smooth operation of these establishments.

Motorcycle Awareness - Safety on the Road

                    May - Motorcycle Awareness Month



Motorcycle safety is a shared responsibility between riders and other road users. 
By practicing these safety tips, you can significantly reduce the risks associated with riding a motorcycle and enjoy a safer and more enjoyable experience on the road.


1.      Wear Proper Safety Gear: 

Always wear a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved helmet to protect your head and reduce the risk of severe head injuries. Additionally, wear protective gear such as eye protection, sturdy boots, gloves, and durable clothing that covers your arms and legs to protect against abrasions and impact.

2.      Get Proper Training: 

Take a motorcycle safety course or training program to learn and enhance your riding skills. These courses cover essential techniques, defensive riding strategies, and provide hands-on practice to improve your overall riding abilities.

3.      Obey Traffic Laws: 

Follow all traffic laws, rules, and regulations. Adhere to speed limits, traffic signals, and road signs. Be aware of your surroundings, check for blind spots, and always use your turn signals when changing lanes or making turns.

4.      Be Visible: 

Make sure you are visible to other motorists on the road. Wear brightly colored or reflective clothing, and use your motorcycle's headlights both during the day and night. Position yourself in the lane where you can be easily seen by other drivers.

5.      Maintain Your Motorcycle: 

Regularly inspect and maintain your motorcycle to ensure it is in good working condition. Check the tires, brakes, lights, signals, fluids, and controls before each ride. Follow the manufacturer's maintenance schedule and address any mechanical issues promptly.

6.      Ride Defensively: 

Assume that other drivers may not see you or may not anticipate your movements. Stay vigilant and be prepared to react to unexpected situations. Maintain a safe following distance from other vehicles, and constantly scan the road ahead for potential hazards.

7.      Avoid Riding Under the Influence: 

Never ride a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any substances that impair your judgment, coordination, and reaction time. Alcohol and drugs significantly impair your ability to operate a motorcycle safely.

8.      Be Mindful of Weather Conditions: 

Adjust your riding style and be cautious when riding in adverse weather conditions such as rain, strong winds, or slippery road surfaces. Reduce your speed, increase your following distance, and use appropriate signals and braking techniques.

9.      Ride within Your Skill Level: 

Be aware of your riding limitations and ride at a pace that matches your skills and experience. Gradually improve your abilities and take additional training courses as needed to enhance your riding techniques.

10.  Stay Focused and Avoid Distractions: 

Avoid distractions such as using electronic devices, texting, or engaging in other activities that take your attention away from the road. Stay focused on riding and keep both hands on the handlebars.
