From Tow Canada Blocker Trucks Unblock The Road to Safety


Recommended Posts

Hey TowBot ... thanks for sharing the article. I fully support blocker trucks and salute this tower's reasoning for putting a blocker truck into service. It's great to see how tow companies are approaching the huge problem of tow operator strikes and they're making (at least) some attempt to defend against them. Too many tow owners balk at costs and liability in using blocker trucks for any reason. So, in that I ask the following questions:


1.  In using blocker trucks for safety, what training is provided to blocker truck operators?


2.  If you have a blocker truck and use it with safety in-mind, how do you list it on your towing invoice?


3.  Does law enforcement in your area support using them and approve your rate? 


4.  Do you provide blocker truck support for other tow companies in your area?


5.  Has there been any push-back from vehicle owners or insurance providers to pay blocker truck fees?


Because there's no formal or in-use blocker truck program, what do you think? I'm sure there are plenty of other questions that could fit into this category and I'd like to hear your ideas.      R.
