    F550 springs/air bags

    Im not a fan of airbags. Too many hassles in my opinion. I just had my 2015 Dodge 5500/ MPL40 at a local spring shop called Spring Service Station in Reading PA. I picked it up friday. For under $900 they added two leafs to the main pack of springs and got things working great! My truck had been weak from day 1 and with use it has become worse and worse. Now it rides a lot better empty, and tows alot better. Much safer all around. A few years ago my 2011 Dodge had two leafs added to the main pack and an additional helper spring added and that truck is great. Cost about $1400. I am so happy with the work they do, that I would never go any other direction with it.
  2. That is sure interesting that they are talking about Philadelphia having the issue handled, since they are still a mess. Phila recently got AutoReturn in there and things are still a joke.
  3. Today I had the pleasure of picking up this beauty from our friends at Wheels in Motion in Pottstown PA after a full restoration. It was delivered to its owner this afternoon. We have our BA Products soft tie downs and soft bridle made to protect a beautiful car like this during transport. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This afternoon Paul Jr was called to Fairview Road approx 1/2 mile east of Route 401 for a BMW X5 in a ditch. We found no damage to the vehicle and the right front wheel was in a drainage culvert. A low line was place on the driver’s side rear lower control arm using an endless loop. As soon and tension was applied, the left rear wheel dropped to the ground and the right front lifted up out of the culvert. The vehicle was placed in neutral and winched back to the roadway with no damage. The vehicle was driven from the scene. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry, the pics got posted in reverse order We received a call from Uwchland Police Department at 9:55 PM 9/11/19 to respond to a single vehicle accident at Route 113 and Holmes Drive. We were advised one vehicle was down an embankment. We immediately dispatched a flatbed truck and a wrecker to the scene. Upon arrival we found the vehicle had spun off the roadway down a small embankment into a swamp. Once given permission, the vehicle was winched to the roadway. It was then loaded onto our flatbed truck and secured for transportation back to our main location. Debris was swept from the roadway. Once back at our main location the vehicle was placed in our secure storage lot. It turns out the vehicle was driven by a young local firefighter who was coming around a turn too fast on the way to the firehouse for a fire call. No one was injured, except the truck.

  6. We were called just after 9 pm on 9/5/19 for one vehicle after a crash on Route 401 in the area of St Matthews Road. We were asked to standby at the church as wires were down on top of a vehicle. The driver and his son were trapped in the vehicle due to the live wires down. They remained in the vehicle until Peco arrived to verify that power was shut off. Once Peco gave permission we were able to winch the vehicle back to the roadway. The Peco crew helped us out by lifting the wires over the vehicle as Paul Jr winched it out of the ditch. The vehicle was loaded onto the Paul Sr’s flatbed and transported to our storage facility.

  7. I try to get as many pictures as I can, before, during and after we clean up a crash. I use them on our shop Facebook page for promotion, as well as when needed to show an insurance company what we did so we can easily get paid. The new lightbar has me posting more here too. dperone- I hope you keep it up with the pictures of your recoveries. I always enjoy your posts as you seem to do things very similar to the way we do. I run an MPL40 wrecker and use dollies a ton and my Dad is regularly out there working wrecks too.
  8. I too am amazed that there hasnt been more participation... especially with such a great prize. I do update our shop Facebook page regularly, and forget about posting here sometimes too, but ive been trying a bit more lately. I post from the app on my Iphone, and find it a bit tedious to list each picture individually, especially when there is a bunch of pics. I did see now that you can pay to subscribe and be able to host multiple images at a time which i need to take the time to look into and see the details. Being able to host multiple images quickly would help me post alot.
  9. Ha.... well typically I do roll a wrecker and a bed when we have the resources available. But in this case, my dad and Bob had just met at the shop to go get breakfast before we opened at 8 am. They were 1 mile away from the crash when the call came in and each in a bed. I was still sleeping like a baby 9 miles away at home with a wrecker.... no sense in dragging me in when its a job they could handle. Plus it is a very busy roadway at that time of morning, the quickest way to open the lanes was get it handled with the equipment that was close by. We just got paid on the Mitsubishi and we have a driver delivering it to the owners home in Philadelphia now. He wanted to pay the bill and deal with the insurance company himself. The owners of the Explorer havent contacted us yet, but it seems like one we may end up stuck with from the sounds of it. Good eye! I didnt even notice that myself. I wasnt out on this job myself, but ill pass on the info to the operator that handled it.
  10. Bob and Paul Sr were called to Route 100 north at Eagleview Blvd yesterday 9/6/19 at 6:28 am for a two vehicle crash. We were advised one vehicle was overturned. The Mitsubishi was on Eagleview Blvd and the Ford overturned in the northbound lane of Route 100. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Last night September 3rd, we received a call from West Vincent Police Department at 5:47 PM to respond to the 2100 Block of Conestoga Road for one vehicle after an accident. We were advised one vehicle was overturned. We immediately dispatched Bob in one of our flatbed trucks and Bill in a wrecker. Upon arrival we found the vehicle on its roof blocking the roadway with glass and debris throughout the area. Multiple tires on the vehicle were flat. Once given permission, our operators were able to carefully winch the vehicle back to its wheels. The vehicle was then loaded onto our flatbed truck. Debris was swept from the roadway and placed into disposal containers. The vehicle was secured and transported back to our location. Once back at our storage facility, the vehicle was place in our secure storage lot. Crash wrap was used to cover all broken windows. The battery was disconnected for safety. The driver was not injured. The vehicle was towed out this morning by AAA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. On Sunday September 1st we were called for an suv in a drainage ditch on Horseshoe Trail in the area of Janie Lane. Bill and Paul Sr headed to the scene. The vehicle had been left unattended and was locked up with no key present. The vehicle had traveled over a drainage culvert pipe and a large boulder but the exterior of the vehicle sustained very minor damage. The vehicle was recovered from the ditch without further damage and towed using our MPL40 wrecker and dollies to our storage facility until the police were able to locate the owner. The vehicle was picked up today and transported to a repair facility in Pottstown for inspection of the undercarriage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. We received a call from West Vincent Police Department at 12:42 AM to respond to the 700 block of St Matthews Road near Malhorne Road for one vehicle after an accident. We were advised of a large pickup truck over 30 feet from the roadway. We immediately dispatched two of our wreckers to the scene. Upon arrival we found the vehicle had traveled off the roadway, over some large rocks and into the wooded area of a residence. We talked with the property owner and obtained permission to recover the vehicle from the safety of the driveway. Once given permission, one of the wreckers was pulled forward into the driveway. The other backed in. Both wreckers were used to winch the vehicle out of the woods to the driveway. Once positioned in the driveway, the front of the truck was lifted and placed onto cribbing. Due to the heavy damage to the front axle and suspension, we determined that using a sling would be the best method of towing the damaged truck. Our operators setup our sling attachment and connected the truck. We found the truck had been in 4 wheel drive, so the 4x4 was disengaged. Debris was swept from the scene and placed into disposal containers. Oil dry was used to absorb hazardous fluids that had leaked onto the driveway. The vehicle was carefully backed out of the driveway into a local parking lot. Safety chains and tow lights were installed. The vehicle was transported to our main location. Once back at our main location the vehicle was placed in our secure storage facility. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. We received a call from Upper Uwchlan Police Department at 10:28 AM to respond to Hickory Park on Park Road for one vehicle after an accident. We immediately dispatched one of our flatbed trucks to the scene. Upon arrival we found a vehicle that had run through a concrete and wood fence along the parking lot. We were able to winch the vehicle directly onto our flatbed. Cribbing was used to raise the front end of the vehicle to keep from causing any more damage to the undercarriage. The wood and concrete that was scattered throughout the area was picked up and loaded onto our flatbed truck. We called and requested a traffic cone and caution tape and additional laborer be sent to the scene. The broken concrete post was placed on our flatbed truck. All debris was picked up from the area. A traffic cone was placed over the hole that remained from the fence post. Caution tape was used to mark off the area of broken fence. The vehicle and debris was transported to our storage facility. No one was injured in the collision. The new driver was learning to drive with mom and practicing in the parking lot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
