  1. In MY experience with them, they USED to be a good club to work WITH, but nowadays that are all sorts of BILLING problems, where they short pay invoices, EVEN for CONTRACTED rates! So we put them on credit card ONLY to avoid ANY further payment problems... We still have one invoice that is now a couple months old that they have REPEATEDLY FAILED to pay the short paid balance that is outstanding due! I've seen their club quality of service from the vendor reps drop off over the past couple of years, where they used to be very east to contact and get problems resolved and they used to have a willingness to "keep the providers happy", but it appears that just is NOT the case anymore! Likely because they are competing more with the other larger clubs to get their share of the contracts, so they (NSD) has decided to start playing the "short-pay game" like the other clubs do...where they short-pay your invoice and hope you won't go through all the trouble they give you to get the $$$ that you're due, thus they shave $$$ off of your bill and that's more $$$ in their pockets... It's sad that NSD has went down hill to this point. Like I said, they USED to be a good club to work with...

  3. This was my first time to attend the Vegas show. I thought it was a well organized and executed show. Although it was an indoors event and that's a new "style" of show for me, compared to the outdoor shows I've attended, I found the indoor format to work very well. The floor plan was easy to follow and locate the booth spaces I wanted to visit. I'm glad to have gotten a few moments at the show to stop and talk, along with having bumped into you and Christopher at the airport and having gotten a few extra minutes to talk.
  4. For a "program" that specific to the AUTOMOTIVE industry, it's laughable that they have a "construction/blueprint" themed image on their "About Us" page of their website and that it totally LACKS any depth and REAL information about them...

  6. @Lightdutykid = From that distance for such a pull, no not really. If you're close up on a casualty, then pulling from a higher angle can sometimes help, but not when the pull is so far away from the truck.
  7. Nice homemade attachment to get the job done
  8. We have both the Miller Claw & the ITD Scotch Blocks. They both come in useful with their places and limits. For HARD pulls, the ITD Scotch Blocks go down, for "lighter" pulls where the truck just needs to get a bite in an icy/snow covered road for a light-duty winch/recovery of a car from a ditch, we will use the Miller Claw. PLEASE NOTE:-> In the photos posted by Kjband13oc; the Miller Claw is shown as having been "installed" BACKWARDS on the wheel-lift! The reinforcing bars are supposed to go so that they are "facing" the "front" of the truck! The "pockets" that are shown in those photos posted by Kjband13oc show that asphalt/dirt have collected in the "pockets" between the reinforcing plates. Think of the physics/forces being applied against the "face" of the claw as you pull hard and drive it down into the earth. In those photos, the claw would want to pull away from the reinforcing plates, however when the Miller Claw is installed properly, the forced applied/loaded onto the "face" of the claw serve to push against the reinforcing plates and help to prevent the claw face from deforming on a hard pull.
  9. Tow Partners has regional and national "averages" that you can look at regarding the rates for various areas.
  10. I'd suggest that you run your "business operations" under one LLC/S-Corp and then a separate LLC/S-Corp as a "Holdings Group" that has the ownership to your property, such as real estate, trucks, equipment, etc. This method works extremely well, as long as you don't "puncture the corporate veil" and that you keep things separate, such as making sure that your "operating entity" makes "rent/lease" payments to your "holdings group". I'm not currently an attorney, nor do I represent to be one, but this has been a successful method for me.
