Know your weight with a Pedders Tow and Load Assessment
With so many of our guests towing caravans, campervans and trailers, BIG4 is excited to announce that we have partnered with Pedders Suspension to promote safe towing on the road.
We know that vehicle weight from accessories, towing and loads is a significant factor in the safety and performance of vehicles. To help you understand your vehicle weight now and in the future, Pedders have developed a world-first service, the Pedders Tow and Load Assessment.
The Pedders Tow and Load Assessment normally retails for $75 and included in the assessment is a comprehensive Brake, Steering and Suspension Check Plus a Weight Matrix. This is where Pedders weight the vehicle, asses the vehicles weight from accessories and loads and also include the tow ball download weight if applicable. All these results are mapped out into the Pedders Weight Matrix software which provides a report based on each towing and load scenario.
We have secured a special price for BIG4 Members:
- $60 for BIG4 Blue Members (Save 25%)
- $50 for BIG4 Gold Members (Save 33%)
BIG4 and Pedders want your next trip to be as safe and hassle-free as possible, so book your Pedders Tow and Load Assessment today.
