  1. I am about 2 hours or so south... check with @EdsTowing He has helped me up that way with customers in the past.
  2. Hmmmm. That would be fine by me. Another tow to my shop, indoor storage, then come pick it up from me in your enclosed trailer is what I would tell them. It sure would make a lot of customers unhappy with Harley. We were lucky I guess. Had a harley dealer across the street. They got tired of dealing with picking up customer bikes in their trailer and referred all their customers to us for towing. Funny how guys have a $30,000 bike and get angry that we charge $125 hookup fee for a bike. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Pretty sure we have all been there a time or two. Years back I took a car to NY and brought the keys home with me!!... I wasnt driving back. Had to call and apologize like crazy. Paid to overnight the keys to the dealer. I felt bad, but it was an easy mistake. And over the years too many have locked keys in due to alarms or whatever that I usually take the key out, or at least roll the window down.
  4. Here is one I did a few years ago where I left the sling folded up. Had to go about 150 miles with this one. It was a recovered theft that was involved in a police chase. We ended up delivering it to Chambersburg. This was also before we upgraded rear springs so the rear end of my truck was sagging bad.
  5. Looks good! Nice to see the sling used. I have one on my MPL40 as well, but only used it a handful of times, but it sure comes in handy when i need it. It is a bit hard to see, but Id be a little cautious about that "step" that you are against, but as long as its solid, you are good. I too would pull the arms all the way in. And in many cases, I leave the wheel lift folded down when possible, as it is a real pain to manhandle that sling around everything. But there is plenty of room to suck those arms in and it would ride even better. My truck has a longer wheel base with
  6. Perfect!! Thats a great way to do it! I only know a bit about the one we towed, but apparently it was purchased after an accident and the buyer had it fixed and painted this color. After the repairs it still needed to go to the dealer for electrical issue and programming, so thats where we came in. For whatever reason, whoever the body shop normally used was afraid to touch it. Worked out well for us, as the body shop didnt flinch when I gave them a price.
  7. The straps aren't on in the picture, but we do use a 1" motorcycle strap to secure the dollies.
  8. Just after 5pm we were called to Route 100 north of Route 113 for two vehicles after an accident with one overturned. Chris cleared the SUV out of the roadway to open things up for traffic, while Bill and Paul Jr uprighted the overturned vehicle and cleaned up the mess in the hotel entrance.

  9. A few weeks ago just after 9 am we were called to Route 113 and Gordon Drive for a pickup truck and trailer that was disabled, blocking the roadway. We arrived to find a Dodge Diesel pickup pulling a loaded 1,000 gal tank on a trailer. With a police escort, Paul Jr was able to tow the combination back to our storage yard. The trailer was loaded with 1,000 gallons of milk. Our speed was kept around 35 mph on the ride back, and we took advantage of our engine brake and tow mode in our Dodge 5500 MPL40. Luckily we have a tunnel box for some added wheel base and heavier rear springs that made
  10. Last week we were called to transport a BMW I8 for a body shop in Clifton Heights. The vehicle had just been repaired and was being towed to BMW for programming. The vehicle was currently locked down with no power. We were requested to use dollies to move the vehicle as it is all wheel drive and stuck in park. Bill was able to transport the vehicle with ease! It was a short 6 mile tow, but it was about 30 miles from us. The body shop had been referred to us after they weren’t able to find someone willing to transport the I8. The starting price of the vehicle is in the $150,000 rang
  11. About a week ago, just after 7 pm we were called to Pennsylvania Drive just off of Route 100 for an F650 Uhaul truck that was stuck in the mud. We arrived to find that the driver had become lost and attempted to turn around. We were able to winch the truck back to the roadway so they could get on their way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Another one from Uhaul this afternoon. We got a call about a Corvette that fell off a ramp while attempting to load it onto a Uhaul trailer. The vehicle had been sold and was headed to Virginia. The vehicle had a flat tire and stuck brakes so it was fighting them as they attempted to load the vehicle. We were able to lift the vehicle by using a wrecker on each side. Once it was back on the ramps we were able to winch the vehicle forward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Paul Jr dropped off this box truck near Newark NJ. It had an electrical issue a few days ago around 4 pm on Planebrook Road in Malvern Pa. The customer called and asked how fast we could get him back to Newark so he could get another box truck. Once we verified their pockets were deep enough, off we went. 220 mile round trip for us in 5.5 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Now that Kat fixed the app so I can post pictures, I guess I’ll need to get to it. Luckily for us we had a quick crash tonight. Just before 730 tonight we were called to Route 100 and Sheree Blvd for two vehicles after an accident. Paul Sr was able to quickly clear the blue Nissan off the roadway from southbound Route 100 and Sheree. It had heavy rear end damage. Paul Jr pulled the white VW off the curb from northbound Route 100. From our understanding the white car had been traveling south but after striking the blue vehicle, it ended up on the other side of the road. Spill Tackle a
