Adding Heavy Hauling To Towing CompanyAdding heavy hauling to your towing business may be right for you. Heavy hauling is a natural extension of any towing company already providing heavy towing and recovery. Many government contracts now require contracted towing and recovery provider companies to maintain lowboy & drop-deck type trailers to efficiently clear wrecks and cargo from an accident scene. Getting that asset working harder for you can deliver financial rewards if you are able to navigate the heavy hauling space including the permit and routing issues that can deliver more headaches than upside. This thought lead to an interesting conversation I had with Ken Preston from Presto Permits at the Baltimore Tow Show.

I learned recently of the passing of Joe Pedigo of Joe’s Towing in Bloomington, IL. Joe was a committedjoe-pedigo and fierce advocate for the towing industry and remained active in its causes throughout his life. My personal experience with Joe was serving along with him on the PTRIO (Professional Towing & Recovery Association of Illinois). As I was a new and very green member of the towing community, I found Joe to be always an welcoming and encouraging voice. He was actively involved in the legislation committee and served all Illinois towers well. I would often see Joe at Tow Shows around the country and would always approach him as if we were old friends. Truth be told, I’m not sure he always remembered me as the kid from Naperville. He was a true legend and was constantly being greeted by a long line of people saying hi to Joe as he walked the tow show floor
. He was so kind to so many of us I think we all felt like Joe’s good friend.

Joe’s son posted the following on Tow411.

We see a lot of tow truck pictures here at With the average towing company website containing no lessTow Truck Picture Advice (2) than 20 images we have experienced our share of bad tow truck pics. That is why I was so delighted to see the March 2015 issue of Tow Times Magazine feature an article about how to take a good tow truck picture. The article provides clear detail on how to make your truck look great. Tow Times doesn’t release their magazine online but I do have an image of the article from Van’s Towing’s Facebook page here.

Here are some of the highlights from the article:

One of the horrors of working in the towing business is we all know someone who has been touched by a roadside accident. Now that the Move Over Law exists in all 50 states its partly our responsibility as emergency vehicle operators to get the word out about what every motorist should do when they see a squad car, tow truck or fire truck in a lane or on the shoulder.
