Hey guys started my own towing business. Should be fully operational by 16 FEB 2011. LMK if you guys need anything! For those interested I have a 2011 F550, with a rollback (flatbed) currently being built @ Dual Tech. Dont worry about your "low clearance" vehicle, because I can handle it :cheers1:

Some of you may be asking "What about the tire shop?"

Lets just say I wear a lot of hats :rofl: (Still doing that as well)

Best advice is use a reputable company and not some fly by night walmart priced fellow. The guys that do this stuff on the cheap 99.9% dont have insurance to cover your vehicle if something happens. Also make sure they use a 4 point tie down, and not a chain on the rear and then use the winch to secure your vehicle holding only with the winch's tension. (such as this guy I saw today...)

If the winch looses it tension this car is going to fall off the truck and kill someone. I cant understand why people cant take the extra 10 min to strap the car the right way. I love how there is never enough time to do it right, but plenty of time to do it over...

He saved my ass two weeks ago when the ignition switch went out, thats for sure!!

He's technically a car dealer.. but its all 5k cars and under. He'll pull from the auction and just flip em, but he will do tows for friends and other guys at the auction looking to transport a couple cars fast

I can provide you with Safety Vest and or Shirts if needed. Not to mention gloves and such. A person bedding a vehicle on the side of any road can never be to visible!
