I understand it sucks to have to tow your own equipment, but at least be professional and do it right ... even if it means calling a competitor.

This is just sad and wrong on so many levels.

We had a competitor tow one of our rollbacks Saturday noght and he will pull it again in the morning to the transmission shop. We clearly do not have the capability in house.

People laugh at wreckers pulling wreckers but they breakdown too. Towers laugh when the competitor tows a truck.

Please have a laugh on us.

Considering that we are having a professional do the job with the proper equipment, we doubt you will find a picture of it in this forum. (Thank you James Jones of Visual Towing).

If You have the presence of Mind to know the limitations of your companies Equipment and Subbed the Job out to a Company that's properly Equipped to handle such a Job. If it does show up in here there's nothing to be ashamed of. Wreckers are all mounted on Trucks, The same Year, make, and Models that we tow everyday with Boxes, Utility Bodies, Fire Bodies etc attached to them. They all break down sooner or later!!!

Nothing even needs to be said about how far out of "acceptable" this is. What I hate is how somebody who does this kind of stuff, then complains about the equipment, or the regulations, or claims the state association & or law enforcement is "out to get them"
