      Hey guys,

      been a follower of Eric for quite some time now on Youtube, (both channels) and have had the pleasure of exchanging some rather lengthy emails with him over the past several months regarding some very touchy topics. Now that I have a couple days R & R, I can finally register here at this site.

      I’m not a mechanic, nor do I profess to be. I don’t turn wrenches for a living nor do I desire to. I’m a tow driver by trade. Going into my 16th year and although my body is starting to feel it, I love what do.

      One thing I’ve noticed since I first started over a decade ago is the separation of Towing and Recovery work from automotive and collision repair. No surprise really, between regulations from the government (mostly through Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier) as well as higher expectations while working as a quasi-emergency service (and understanding incident command structure) my line of work has evolved from an extension of a repair business into a business unto its own.

      My industry is still changing. There are many “old school” operators out there that do things in ways that are, well, to put it politely, less than desirable, but there are also quite a few shops out there that have come up to speed and are willing to do things in a proper, safe, and dare I say it, legal manner.

      My hope is as the 2 occupations continue to separate themselves, that I can share some insight on certain things from our side of the fence, and perhaps help to maintain better relations between the 2 industries. Afterall, at the end of the day, its about getting the customer and their car off the road safely, without incident or injury, and getting them to a repair facility that can fix the problem and get them back out on the road in a reasonable amount of time.

      Won’t be posting as much as many others here as our trade has its own forum for discussing such industry related manners, and realize, as many of you work a set schedule as an automotive technician, recovery technicians don’t get to have that luxury (ex; while many of you were enjoying your Memorial Day Monday, I put in a 17 hour day..) But I promise to visit often and occasionally throw 2 cents into a conversation that i’ve either been invited to, or perhaps start a few topics on my own… Looking forward to it…

      Joe (the Tow Guy)

      P.S. Eric, thanks for the many times responding to my “Tomes” that I’ve sent you in email. I know I like to write and can probably go on and on, but its great knowing that your not some wrench slinging ego maniac that’s high on himself. The world needs more down to earth people these days and I’m glad to know ya.

      See ya in a ditch…
