Early Morning Rollovers...


Recommended Posts

Couple of rollovers we got the other morning... Control Center called on the 1st one and said "It's 196 and....Oh...well it looks like it's in your driveway?" Snapped a pole off in the yard of one of our rental properties...

After flipping it, it laid on the ground like a lobster... Eddie picked it up with the skid steer & put it in the fence...

Guy said he swerved to miss a dear.... Lost control, ran over pine cones rocks & boulders...then barrel rolled multiple times. Thank God he was only going 45!

It's all good...we bill hourly w/ minimums on all recoveries...

 

We are still waiting for our Property Damage claim for the damage to our rental properties. It ripped the wiring out of the roof of the house.

How do you charge enroute mileage on that one???

 

With the way our contracts and municipal codes are written, the tow itself is the same price if it's in our driveway or at the furthest point of the town. The price is still more than adequate for going to the furthest spots, and we can bull for anything and everything we need to do to complete a job. It works out though because we're right at a busier intersection for accidents, and we've had more than a few land in our parking lot.

dprone, I don't even get them to land on the same road I am on

 

We are pretty rural, it takes me 5 miles to get to a well traveled road.  Most of my calls have about 12 - 15 enroute miles. Police work for us is not regulated, we just have to post our rates. 

I work for 3 clubs and get pretty good rates because I am out here and I get calls from the others because no one wants to travel so it works out pretty good

We're a little of both, our shop is in a mood size town with a couple 4 lanes within a mile or so of us, but outside the couple square miles of the center of town is farm land so it starts getting rural quick. We also tow for the state police who cover a few rural rural towns south of us, and those calls get to be 20-30 miles each way. Luckily the state rates are pretty high, so we get taken care of even without being able to charge towed miles. When they regulated our state rates they actually set the tow price higher than what we were charging for hook and milage before, so I can't complain.
