Everyone knows that Las Vegas gets hot in the summer. From June through July, it's not uncommon for temperatures to stay in the 90s or much higher with even scorching nighttime temperatures. The heat isn't just hard on people and pets; it can also put a lot of strain on your car. The good news is there are several steps you can take to reduce your risk of a breakdown during the summer and avoid a call for cheap towing in Las Vegas. Have Your Battery Tested Dead batteries are a common reason for motorists to call a tow truck company in Las Vegas for roadside assistance.

That's because vibration and heat are the biggest problems that cause internal breakdown of the battery and failure. While you can't do much about the heat, you can make sure your battery is secure to reduce vibration. Because the battery fluid evaporates faster in the summer, which can corrode connections and terminals, take the time to clear the corrosive build up on the clamps and terminals to make sure your battery will be able to start. If your battery is getting old, have it tested to figure out how much longer it should last. Make Sure Your Tires Are Inflated Like dead batteries, flat tires are a common cause for phone calls to our towing company in Las Vegas [...]
