NoVa Towing Company?

Anyone know of a tow company in Arlington/Alexandria/Fairfax that both has a rollback and won't screw me? I need to get a truck from Alexandria to Arlington. AAA won't tow cars with expired registrations.

thx,

Tony

Just a thought, but you could slap a current tag on the back, the AAA tow drivers don't really care once they are out there. Pendy's new treasure came to me via AAA and a valid tag that did not belong to it... Sorry, I don't have a tow company name for you in No. Virgnia though, sorry.

Yah, unfortunately I already threw a sh!t fit with AAA about it, so I think that bridge is burnt. About halfway through my rant at their CSR I realized I maybe shouldn't have started. Oh well.

hey tony

why don't you just flat tow it behind ur 90? or even better how hard would it be to make driveable? it isn't that far...

btw bruce is driving that RR as a daily driver. passed ME inspection no problem. only issue was a broken brake line.

Tony,

I have access to one. It is about a 12 foot flatbed car trailer.

Dave, I would tow it but I have no tow hitch on the 90. Apparently it has two batteries without an isolator, so jumping it won't work(this accoriding to the PO, I'm not sure this jives). Apart from 2 very dead batteries, I'm not sure what if anything is wrong with it "worked when parked."
Good news on that truck that Bruce bought! Glad it worked out.

Greg -- is it a trailer or a rollback truck?

Put a new battery in it... Any you can jump a dual battery system. My ST has two yellow tops connected together and I have had to jump it off before.

Henry's, Willow springs, Roadrunner all have roll backs. No idea about price though.

I'll take some over the weekend. At least the starting battery is dead, I'm sure the winch battery is close behind it. Brakes are soft so I'll bleed them down this weekend, headliner is shot, liftgate has a little time left in it, windows are slow -- all in all, typical stuff. Apart from that she drove remarkaly nicely. Needs a THOROUGH cleaning, though.
