What to Expect When You Need Towing, Transport & Recovery Services in Kalgoorlie


What to Expect When You Need Towing, Transport & Recovery Services in Kalgoorlie

Vehicle breakdowns and stranded situations in the vast and remote areas of Western Australia demand specialised towing services you can rely on. In such instances, GTT Towing, Transport & Emergency Services emerges as the go-to solution, offering a range of towing, transport & recovery services throughout Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Goldfields region.

With a skilled team and specialised equipment, we ensure prompt and trustworthy assistance for vehicles and equipment ranging from passenger cars to heavy machinery.

Why You Shouldn't Attempt to Tow Your Own Vehicle

When faced with a stranded vehicle, the temptation to tow it yourself might arise. However, before hitching up and attempting a DIY tow, it's essential to understand the potential risks and consequences involved. GTT will explain the safety risks, legal consequences, and advantages of calling for towing services instead.

Safety Hazards of DIY Towing

Lack of Proper Equipment

  • Inadequate Towing Capacity:
    • Personal vehicles may lack the towing capacity required for heavier loads and long-distance towing.
    • Attempting to tow a vehicle beyond your vehicle's capacity can lead to accidents and damage.
  • Improper Tow Bars and Hitches:
    • DIY towing often involves makeshift tow bars and hitches.
    • Inadequate or poorly attached towing equipment increases the risk of detachment during transit.

Limited Visibility and Control

  • Impaired Rear Visibility:
    • Towing obstructs rearview visibility, making it challenging to navigate safely.
    • Maneuvering with limited visibility raises the likelihood of collisions or misjudging distances.
  • Reduced Braking Efficiency:
    • Towing adds weight to the towing vehicle, affecting braking efficiency.
    • DIY tow setups may lack proper braking systems, leading to longer stopping distances.

Roadside and Environmental Factors

  • Unpredictable Terrain:
    • Kalgoorlie's diverse terrain includes uneven surfaces and dirt roads.
    • DIY towing on unpredictable terrain increases the risk of accidents and damage.
  • Weather Conditions:
    • Sudden weather changes, common in Kalgoorlie, can affect road conditions.
    • DIY towing in adverse weather, such as heavy rain or strong winds, compounds safety risks.
