It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything new, and while a lot has changed (for all of us), much has stayed the same.

This summer has highlighted a common issue with vehicles that most people are unaware of possibly being a problem. Vapor lock.

Fire, Desert, & the 4th of July
For those who may be new to the desert, the monsoon season officially started on June 15th. We haven’t had any actual rain from it, though. That means our lovely desert is a bit on the dry side.

Summer, the Road, & Tires
We are getting ready to head into summer here in the Old Pueblo. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t mind the delay in triple digit weather. Unfortunately, they are here.

This year has been filled with new experiences, one being the partial loss of my towing buddy. My little guy started kindergarten this… Continue reading 2018 – A Year of Firsts
Now Hauling Motorcycles!
It took us a bit of time, but we are finally able to help those in the motorcycle community. We have had many calls for motorcycles over the last couple of months. Looking at the rigs that are available for purchase, I just wasn’t confident in their quality, and many were really expensive. Well, with… Continue reading Now Hauling Motorcycles!
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
You may have heard this before, but the importance of the statement still rings true. As a tow truck operator, I get to see some amazing things. Some things are down right scary.
