    It’s a shame when a man is in a bind needing answers and all he gets is smart ### remarks. Go to the flatbed forum #5 and look for James Mack. He can and will answer your question.

    He wants to know if 9k for recovering a truck, a trailer and cleaning up the accident scene is "fair".. OK.. let me answer.. YES! It's fair.. its also about the standard rate for cleaning up the mess

    @jamespmack ....we could use your advice.

    @exhausted379 ...you're right. It was an honest question and it deserves an honest answer, not a bunch of smart aleck comments that don't do anyone any good.
