Knight’s Towing Company FAQ Page

What do you do when your car breaks down on the side of the road?

Steer it as far away from traffic as possible, notify authorities (if necessary), and contact Knight’s Towing at 941-284-9741

Should I stay in my car if it breaks down?

Yes, in most cases it's safer to stay buckled in your seat in your car, especially if you break down in the middle of a busy road. If you must leave the vehicle, it’s better to do so from the passenger side, or whichever side faces away from cars.

Can you tow a car without keys?

Yes, if you have the specialized equipment like we have at Knight’s Towing. Otherwise, this is impossible for ordinary car owners.

Can my car be towed without being in neutral?

In order to tow your vehicle, all four wheels must be off the ground. This requires having the vehicle in neutral before transferring it onto a tow truck.

Can you tow a car stuck in park?

Yes, the safest to do this is to lift it directly into a flatbread truck (to avoid transmission damage).

What to do if my car won't start but has power?

If you can still turn on the headlights, then there’s still some battery. This means either the starter or ignition is malfunctioning and needs a jump from another battery.

What is the difference between “tow haul” and “tow”?

Towing refers to what a vehicle can carry behind it, depending on engine torque. Hauling involves the amount of weight you can load onto the back of a pickup or flatbed truck.

Is it safe to tow a car with a flat tire?

Yes, we have exactly the right equipment to make this much safer than trying to change a tire right next to traffic on the side of the road.

At what PSI is a tire considered flat?

Once the tire’s PSI (pounds per square inch) drops below 20, you have a flat tire. Most vehicles function best with tires inflated to about 32-35 PSI.

How do you tow a car with power steering?

Leave the ignition switch in the “on” position to disengage it. This applies to most modern vehicles, and it’s otherwise much harder to tow them.

How do you unlock a steering wheel for towing?

Hold your steering wheel in the proper direction, insert the key in the ignition, and start it. If the engine doesn’t start, turn the wheel the other way, and repeat the same steps to unlock it.
