Can You Tow a Box Truck?

Towing a box truck is a great way to move large items from one place to another. It can be used for anything from moving furniture to hauling heavy equipment.

But before you hit the road with your box truck, it’s important to make sure that it is properly equipped and that you know how to tow it safely.

Equipment Needed

Before you can tow a box truck, you’ll need some basic equipment. First, you’ll need a vehicle capable of towing the weight of your box truck and any cargo it may be carrying.

You’ll also need a tow hitch and a trailer ball mount. Depending on the size of your box truck, you may also need additional equipment such as brakes, lights and safety chains.

How To Tow A Box Truck

Once you have all the necessary equipment, it’s time to hit the road. Follow these steps for safe and successful box truck towing:

  • Attach the trailer ball mount to your vehicle’s hitch.
  • Securely attach safety chains or straps between the two vehicles.
  • Check all lights on both vehicles to make sure they are working.
  • Check your mirrors to ensure that there is plenty of room around the box truck.
  • Start driving slowly and accelerate gradually.
