Tow411/TowForce Login & Member Roll Call

Recommended Posts

Tow411 has conducted these member roll calls numerous times over the years. Generally in the Early Spring and the Fall months. How it work is every member is encouraged to login and add a reply within this topic. There are often questions accompanying the reply. In the past we have asked for a members state and number of years in the industry.

 

For this TowForce Member Roll Call we will be seeking any training or certifications. Such as WreckMaster and/or TRAA Numbers & Level. Other training such as Recovery Billing Unlimited, Wes Wilburn, the Late Dave Lambert, STO (Southwest Tow Operators), CTTA (California Tow Truck Association) etc.

 

Community support is also needed to fund activities such as attending industry events, donations to such worthly causes as the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame & Museum, rebuild an emergency fund and I cannot recall the last time the Towing Information Network was able to make a Donation to the Survivor Fund. If you are not already a community supporter here would you consider joining at a Patron or Sponsor Level. Enough supporters and we do not need to continue to request financial assistance from our valued members. Thank you and don't forget to add a reply before you click the supporter link below.

I have been advised that the supporter link above is not working properly at the Sponsor Levels. If you have any problems please let us know. The old supporter info page is still up, however it is out of date.

Howdy y'all, my name is Troy Weems and I've been in the tow industry for just shy of 9 years. I'm glad to be here and look forward to the rest of my career as a tow op! Be safe ladies and gents. I'm from TX so I'm TDLR qualified, and multiple company wide training classes but nothing more official than hands on. I'm mainly a heavy operator but I run light duty as well.

Towem here from Victoria in Australia. I first started towing in my early 20’s now aged 60 + so that’s over 40 years in the industry.

Not many courses on offer in Australia however both my self and my middle son did attend the first miller course held at truck works in South Australia. The instructor was Tom lacaro with help from Brandon from miller ind

I enjoy the forum and check in most days .

Here!  Been towing for 43 years.  Trained by Ross Kinman, Tom Luciano, WreckMaster, Dave Lambert, Joe Sroga (sp), and other local folks.  Let my WreckMaster 4-5 expire a few years ago.

Certifications don't mean anything to customers around here, they just want PRICE.
