  1. I think Maryland Carrier sales in Baltimore sells them.
  2. Photo for representation only We have a new operator so we send him on an easy call. The 2500 Silverado is parked near a cattle barn with no brakes. I instructed him on the details & sent him on his way.. About 45 minutes later, I get the call that we all dread, " do you have a truck going to..." So my heart sinks, waiting to hear the bad report on our new operator. The gentleman on the phone says " the driver is driving very well, but I would like to let you know that a orange cat crawled out from under the truck on your flatbed, walked to the side o
  3. Usually its 2 landscape stones or 2 litre bottle crates. They center them under the car, which usually damages the rocker panels or the floor pan. We had stretch of 3 2020 Toyota Camrys in 1 day 2 weeks ago. All of them were within a 5 mile circle of each other.
  4. Good job Grumps! Those types of "community relations" jobs are imho more rewarding that dollars, & are great for our industry!
  5. Just wanted to cover this subject here. It will be the topic of our weekly safety meeting. Today we recieved a call to recover a pickup truck that was in the rear of a residence against an above ground pool. I decided to take our Jerr Dan Cougar as it was unclear from the customer how far off the driveway it was. So, once I arrived, the customer told me the details: the truck would not start, they called for a tow, a wheelift arrived, hooked up, ( obviously, NO SAFETY CHAINS) then proceeded out of the driveway. There is a continuous 10° grade uphill & when the wheelift crested
  6. My personal favorite when someone asks for advice "this advise is worth exactly what you paid for it, NOTHING!"
  7. The window was covered by the customer before we arrived, we use crash wrap if we cover broken glass.
  8. Thanks Grumps, we've been using this technique for stolen wheels for years. Recently, we purchased 2 sets of Guni wheels (both sizes) as we had a spree (15+) of wheel thefts in parking garages, usually on the upper floors. But, neither set of Guni wheels fit the 2021 Blazer so we had to go old school with the carrier dolly system.
  9. Recieved this call yesterday morning. The customer parked near the entrance to the hotel, (75 feet from the front door), checked in & spent the night. This is what she found in the morning! Placed go jacks under all 4 wheels, pushed out of parking place then installed the carrier dolly system loaded & delivered to the shop. The customer was heartbroken over what happened to her new Blazer.
  10. Thanks for the info. I am trying to aquire this entire truck. It is the first "new unit" ( the body that is) that was purchased & used by the original owner of our company. He often spoke of how he towed anything that came along & how great its recovery capabilities were...He drove it & parked it there in 1979...I remember it!!!
  11. Found this next to a barn. Looks to be on a 50 ish Ford. Any idea what Holmes model this is?
  12. Our government, hard at work for us. I recall that is how the end of Nissan Diesel America (UD) began.
  13. The car had a crushed right quarter panel & the exhaust was wrapped around the rear end...surely totaled as it was a 91 Town Car. I am just glad it didn't happen when anyone was around the car...could have been a real tragedy. I LOVE my Jerr Dan "Cougar". By far the most versatile truck I've ever used. Ever since I had the Mico brake lock installed it's a winching BEAST!
