  1. We were called one of our customers to pick up a limo that was on it's way out of Atlantic City when it overheated. I towed it back to a shop that deals exclusively with limos, a nice 45 mile ride. As it turns out, one of the passengers was a guy I know who's a state police dispatcher and also tows for a company about 20 miles away from us. I guess it really is a small world.

    Three Wheel Action Challenger

    Looks the same as I do them, way easier than using a bed, in my opinion Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-T337A using Tapatalk

    Lexus "On the Rocks".

    Judging by the damage to the door, I'd say this person needs some driving lessons. Good job

    We recently took delivery of our newest truck, a 2019 Hino 338 with a Century LCG 16. So far it's been a great addition to our fleet.

    AMG Benz...

    It looks nice and all, but I'd much rather have the truck towing it than the car itself. Nice little payday though.

    Definitely Outside The Box!

    Now that is cool.
  7. I avoid clear warning lights to the rear. They have the tendency to blind oncoming traffic, more so than the other colors anyway.

    The Fleet

    We washed up the fleet for an updated picture. Missing are one flatbed currently being built at the Miller factory and one flatbed that we are taking off the road when the new one comes in.
  9. We turned 70 years old this year and are planning a customer appreciation/ open house to celebrate. I was wondering if anyone else ever did one and if so what activities did you have; i.e. wrecker demos, touch a truck, food, music, etc. Also, how did you guys handle running calls? Did you take only emergent calls and decline all the rest or have a skeleton crew try to handle everything? Any comments will be appreciated.
  10. One of the state police garages we tow for has had this old Chevy with a Holmes 1200 sitting there rotting away for years. Every time I go in there I ask them when they are going to auction it off, it would be a cool little project and it has less than 5500 miles on it. The other day they called me to tow it out of there. I got all excited because I thought it was time for the auction, but unfortunately they just sent it to another garage to move wrecked troop cars around.

    Wheel lift & dolly

    I love the car manufacturers for making such pain in the butt cars. I always hated using a flatbed so having so many stuck in park cars that need doillies keeps me in my truck all day

    Gas Truck Sunk w/ A Twist...

    i always wondered why they put such a long hose on that reel considering how many we pull out trying to get right to the tank.
  13. My thoughts exactly. I will sit behind one of MY OWN trucks and help them get loaded quicker. No way am I blocking a lane, much less for another company who will blow by me riding the white line when I'm roadside loading a car. I will stay in the slow lane, get as far left in the lane as I can and slow wayyy down to force those behind me to do the same. Of course these things help too. All this took was about $50 in cones and around a minute to walk them out and not one car passed me in the slow lane. If you're not willing to invest that little bit to save your own life, why should I risk mine for you?
