2019 PSP Application Process

Recommended Posts

A Message from the President of the Pennsylvania Towing Association:

 

The Pennsylvania Towing Association has been made aware of the issues and concerns with the latest renewal application required by the Pennsylvania State Police. There has been some misinformation circulating as to the development of this application process. Please note that the Pennsylvania Towing Association was NOT involved in the development or the implementation of this process. We have and will always work hand in hand with the Pennsylvania State Police for the betterment of the towing industry. As with all new procedures there are some growing pains. Please be patient while the Pennsylvania State Police work through their processes.

So far this is all new this year.    But Normally every year PSP sends out an application basically to update info.  Included is a blank, very generic form to fill in rates.  Typically we and many others attach our printed, very detailed rate sheet and mail it in and its never been any issue.  This year, applications are being denied if there is any rate added other than the fill in the blank sheet.   After an email to PSP we are finding that we can no longer bill for anything other than what is listed on the application.    So that means they are basically telling us that they are no longer allowing us to charge for oil dry, crash wrap, tarping, hybrid battery disconnect fees.  Some of the heavy guys cant bill for a tractor to tow a trailer (in pa it is illegal to tow the combination).   Right now we only have basic information and are trying to find out how to proceed.  The PA Towing Association has been contacted.  Hopefully we will have some answers soon.

What barracks covers your area? I just helped with two applications through Troop R, Dunmore, and we didn't have any issue with detailed rates, used same rate sheets from previous applications. Dunmore didn't send out the fill in the blank sheets this year, just a letter detailing what info they wanted and the deadline.

 

Sounds typical of PSP, each barracks acts like their own little mini-agency with limited guidance from Harrisburg.
