This is a step-by-step demonstration on how to load your car onto a U-Haul Tow Dolly. Towing your car on a car carrier is helpful for towing project cars and hot rods. You can also use a tow dolly to transport your car when you’re making longer moves.

Trivia Question(s): Which vehicles should you NOT tow from the front wheels?……and why? (Final Jeopardy music playing in background)…
NEVER PUT THE S HOOK THRU A LINK, ALWAYS PULL THE LINK UP BEFORE HOOKING THE S HOOK!!!!
Thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️
I have to do a 555 miles of driving with this. This was helpful.
If my car doesn’t drive can I push my car in lol
So how would this work with a bad engine my car don’t move..?
Made a reservation on a 20ft Uhaul with a tow dolly. Stupid question but does the tow dolly come attached or do I have to attach it myself after I load the truck?
Do you think I can pull a Toyota yaris Hatch with a chevy s10 from Texas to Florida safely?
can you go in reverse with a car loaded onto the tow dolly ?
A few things you should never do. #1 laying the straps on the ramp and driving over them. They could get wrappe4d in the wheels and damaged. #2 Never use a seatbelt to secure a steering wheel. They are too smoth and slick to grip and secure the wheel.. Instead, use about 5 feet of 3/4" nylon rope. fold it in half, wrap the looped end through the steering wheel, and then through itself. then pull it tight out the driver's door (not at the hinge but at the back)close the door securi89ng the rope in the door jam. then tie 3 knots from the outside securing it as close as possible to the door jam. #3. Never twist chain to take up the slack if a quick force was exerted on it like the car falling off, the chain most likely would snap.. For all chains used in towing, if you have extra slack, use bungee cords to hold it in place. make sure to use plyers and pinch the bungee cord hooks on a link of the chain. This must also be done at the hitch. Using bungee cords keep the chain off the ground, and still allows a tight turn.
Is it bad to go 80 with dolly or auto transport trailer?
So once everything is loaded should I put the car that I'm towing in neutral
I'm driving from MA to FL. Would a Honda Oddessey (towing capacity 3,500 lbs) be fine to town a Hyundai Elantra(2,800lbs)?
I found out most of the cars I have put on a dolly don't run.
can i put a tow dolly on the back of one of your box truck rentals?
Come on man what are you going to do if you don't have a running vehicle and you have to have 16 Mexicans push it up on the ramp. Not everything is a perfect world. However U-Haul helps a lot of people
You forgot to add the part where you say “that’s not going anywhere.” and now that shit’s gonna fall off
No mention of putting car in neutral. Also if you're towing a rear wheel drive vehicle then you need to tow it with rear wheels off the ground.
Would it be safe to tow a vehicle cross country like this?

You might wanna tell people to leave the vehicle in neutral once secured?? Not everything is front wheel drive.
How garbage and suspect is this! Right, now the vehical is the same as my father's except his is far from white! The only thing that suits for that is thinking about some Grey buisness from an observation and thinking surrender suits
WARNING ⚠️ PER MY EXPERIENCE PLACE YOUR VEHICLE IN PARK ONCE IT IS LOADED ON THE HITCH AND STRAPS ARE SECURE, MY CAR CAME OUT OF FHE STRAPS BECAUSE IT WAS IN NEUTRAL. WE ARE OKAY BUT WARNING EVERYONE BE SAFE !
I thought the steering wheel was to remain free to spin. Because if not then your going to drag the back of the car around . .
How do you tow if not running
This dolly was recommended to tow my c4 corvette.
Can I load my car with boxes and then tow it? (Not that heavy)
Also! Never drive in the #1 lane or the carpool lane regardless the number of occupants you have while towing. It's a huge ticket!
As a professional tow operator I see a few things wrong with this video. One is you NEVER twist chains! This decreases the working load limit meaning they are more likely to fail when a load is put on them.
Great and helpful video, I am from middle east and looking to buy tow dolly would you advise me from where I can start to purchase it? Thank you.
Disconnect the Drive shaft!!?? Guess you just can't put car in Neutral…..
I’m so glad the Uhaul employee didn’t tell me to do any of this, and now I’m stuck on the side of the road and my car almost rolled off 🙃
And always Double Check your 4 Prong Lighting for Safety purposes!
But the parking brake was engaged 1:00
So stupid. I'm towing my car, obviously there's a reason why it needs to get tow. Because it's broken, so how the hell I'm suppose to get it up there.
I know this is a dumb question but should the car in tow be in neutral?
I need to tow a 64 corvair. Vairy low to the ground will it be able to get in this dolly]?
