GRUMPS The Towman Posted June 1, 2021 Share Posted June 1, 2021 Do you wonder why all of our insurance premiums are outrageous??? Here is probably one of the biggest reasons.... So, I had this 2020 Toyota Tacoma in my yard from a rollover mva My partner performed last week. Although it was a relatively light roll, there was significant damage to the cab. The wheels, driveline, engine, etc.. were in fine shape. I was actually able to yard drive it out of the gate for these clowns to load it. Copart sent a "contracted" tow company That I will not Name to retrieve it from me and when he showed up, he had a pretty decent looking Alfa-Romeo on the deck. After he cut the check, I asked How he planned on loading it, Assuming he might put the Tacoma on the W / L backwards... His response was " I am going to bang bar it".... So here is a 9,000 mile, excellent conditioned Tacoma parts truck off on its 70 mile journey to the Copart yard..... In neutral, Engine running.... Notice ZERO safety chains, He used ONE lone J-hook / chain combo to secure it to his cross bar, ( J-hook on one side, through the grab hooks and wrapped the other end through the cv-axle ), There is ONE tie-back on the A-R ( probably the other j-hook from his pair ) and the winch on the front. ZERO front securements... The wireless tag-light bar he put on the roof doesn't even work.. When I asked him about it, He was very matter-of-fact and said, "I just tell the cop if they ask that it died "..... The third pic is of him driving off.. 1 Quote PROFESSIONAL TOWING & RECOVERY IS NOT JUST A JOB.. IT IS A LIFESTYLE Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
