    You did it, good job! )
    I usually hook one strap to the Jeep's frame, to push it down a bit. That way it doesn't jump up and down, also I can see more road and stoplights from the cab, because the front ramp can be positioned higher, couple holes for sure.

    I hard tied the front end of the one in number two because the straps are a little to short to make it over tire.
    when I haul 6 pick ups I hook into the frame on number two and number 5 to prevent bouncing and get the height down an inch

    only problem today was I had to leave a charger behind because it was missing a key. so I will deliver 7 in morning instead of 8. it was a rush/sold unit. I hate hauling Chrysler anyways. now I am covered up nissans for the rest of the week so one less car wont hurt

    I saw those. definitely good money. I told myself last year I wanted to get on those but I had a sterling/boydstun and didn't want to run that Mercedes across the country and back. especially in California.i believe CARB would have sniffed me out. now I have California compliant truck it is on my mind for sure

    Hey guys, I'm new here. Awesome forum, thanks for letting me reg.

    I realize these are old posts, but for the love of god, cover your #####. I'm a sales director for a good sized broker, and we've seen this popping up more and more lately. I have a case open currently where a carrier did ~6k real damage to a Tahoe. Took it to some crappy chop shop and had it repaired for $2k of his own money.

    High volume customer/dealer very quickly spotted the damage, knew it was several days behind schedule and put 2 and 2 together.

    Now Progressive will be paying out the newly adjusted Repair Order of ~$7200, and the carrier is still out his $2k cash.

    BTW I am VERY pro-carrier - but BSing your customer does not help anyone.

    It all depends, if you can fix the damage and get the car delivered. What’s the harm? Sometimes it’s cheaper then going through insurance. Sometimes you just need to let insurance handle it. We haven’t had to fix any cars that we were moving but like I said. It was cheaper to fix the car damaged by my buddies trailer vs going through insurance. It’s legal to settle outside of insurance as long as both parties are ok with it. Just make sure to document everything so they can’t file a claim after you’ve paid them.
