    Found A Cheaper Tow

    Only needed to go 70 miles into NY.
  2. Anybody aware of ANY contract stating tow truck is required to provide passenger transportation?
  3. If you have a DOT# and/or MC# { which is required if you are interstate). All FMSCA regulations apply. You can be ticketed without passenger authorization paperwork(personal information etc.) & proper passenger insurance on your commercial insurance policy Odds are nothing will happen until a serious accident occurs & insurance refuses to pay. Owner will be held responsible, fined & sued. There is specific insurance for livery, cab etc that has nothing to do with commercial trucks
  4. Why post ad without price. Seems like alot of wasted time to just get price. Iam sure question has been asked before.

    2 For New Years Eve

    1- transmission slipping, 2- reduced engine power(diesel regen issue)
  6. Check out FMSCA 49 CDR 392.60 Unauthorized persons not to be transported Rider policy would be required on your commercial truck insurance
  7. Appreciate the responses. Purchasing a tow truck is not difficult. Dealer can provide you with chassis & body specs if truck is or will be built. When I stated educated buyer, I meant someone who would call chassis dealer & provide specs. I found new cab & chassis price varies slightly. Next, call tow truck body dealer with specs, ask for quote installed. Might be in for a surprise If you think dealer has tight margins. Let’s not forget Dealer incentives, discounts, etc.

    Very common problem with 1000 series transmissions is PRNDL switch. Bolts directly behind shift lever, inexpensive & simple repair. Be sure to clean & de burr shifter shaft before installing new switch.

    Perform logic lock. Be sure to disconnect both batteries pos & neg. Touch positve cable to negative cable. Logic lock has to be performed even after clearing codes with scanner, sometimes

    Eds Towing Newest Addition "Updated"

    Impressive, no comparison to any other manufacturer good luck with it
  12. If the low bidders weren’t just dreamers, could be they low balled offer & can always negotiate higher not less. Higher bidders may not be negotiating types. Obviously sellers want top dollar, buyers want best deal. By throwing out low bids I think its safe to say, dealer lost 15-20% potential customers, permanently
  13. Completely agree with you about older trucks & junk out there. My question was directed towards new. Dont know of any other marketplace that price seems like a secret. I would think any educated buyer willing to spend $100k plus understands how truck specs relate to price. Seems like wasted time for seller & buyer. Unnecessary emails, phone calls etc. it can take hours to find out cost is way over market value and/or budget

    Fun with Limos

    Dollies could be a issue in some areas like NYC. We have only done a few & simply pulled 1 driveshaft between carrier bearings. Alot safer .
