Winter Driving in the Rockies: It can happen any minute

In Colorado it is not unusual for weather to change quickly, so be prepared and drive safe.

  • Make sure your brakes, windshield wipers, defroster, heater and exhaust system are in top condition.
  • Check your antifreeze and be ready for colder temperatures. You may want to add special solvent to your windshield washer reservoir to prevent ice from forming.
  • Always carry chains. Make sure they are the proper size for your tires and are in working order. You might want to take along a flashlight and chain repair links.
  • Other suggested items to carry in your car are an ice scraper or commercial de-icer, a broom for brushing snow off your car, a shovel to free your car if it is “snowed in”, sand or burlap for traction if your wheels should become mired in snow and an old towel to clean your hands.
  • Allow enough time. Trips to the mountains can take longer during winter that other times of the year, especially if you encounter storm conditions or icy roads. Get an early start and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
  • Make sure you have your battery checked.

Meet the Newest Member of the Family: The Flatbed: Why Flatbed Towing?

Certain vehicles require flatbed towing. To avoid costly damage to sensitive drivelines, especially the AWD (All-Wheel-Drive) systems, such as GM Versa-trak, Chrysler Selectrack, Subaru AWD and Audi Quattro, we strongly suggest flatbed towing. (For many vehicles, manufacturers specify their vehicles may only be safely towed on a flatbed truck).

Vehicles equipped with ride levelers, air shocks, and other computer controlled suspension parts may be damaged by controlled suspension parts may be damaged by other means of towing.

Our steel bed carrier is equipped with a 4 wheel tie down system, proven to be extremely effective in safely transporting any type of vehicle and the four wheel strap system allows the suspension to do its job unimpeded.

Although our traditional tow truck is safe and often efficient for many cases, we offer the flatbed for those other instances. You can count on Daniel’s Towing to give your vehicle the treatment it needs for a safe and professional move.
