Staying Safe on the Road When You're Hauling Cargo

Here at Gillman Honda of San Antonio, we strive to provide drivers with the information they need to get the most out of their vehicle. If you recently purchased an SUV or van, cargo space probably played an important part in your vehicle buying process. Many motorists are unaware that there are proper and improper ways to load cargo.

Safety always comes first. You'll want to be sure you don't inadvertently hinder your rear visibility. Stacking items too high make changing lanes and traveling in reverse difficult. Be sure to secure any loose items, and load the heaviest cargo first.

It's also important to know the load capacity of your vehicle. You'll want to factor in the weight of passengers when you're determining how much cargo you can haul.

As always, if you have any questions about your vehicle or your vehicle is in need of service, visit our service center.
