    Woot!!! Ok Interview went pretty ok. Manager said that they wanted a MVR and a Criminal Background check before they could hire me. Then It seems somebody got pissy after my interveiw and quit and when a Wrecker sits that wrecker cost money, So The Owner told The Manager that they would work around the Paper work long enough for me to get some money to pay for them and I start Training in the Morning at 7:00 am

    Ok now Before you get the wrong Idea I dont operate a Wrecker this big My license allows me to drive up to air brakes so I will most likely be driving a F-550(The same size as your full size p/u cept its rated at almost 5 ton) maybe a F-650 (650 is still a big truck 12 ton)

    Wow I went in today cause they wanted to take me down into their impound yard and have me move a couple cars around, just to see if i actually knew what I was talking about. Then the Owner started giving a class in assessing a winch-out (figuring how much force is needed to pull a vehicle out of its predicament and figuring if you have enough anchor resistance and how to achieve more) This is done so you know if your truck is capable of providing the required service and if not how big a truck will you need to call in to assist.
    Quite a bit to wrap your head around and a lot of math but as it turns out a lot simpler than it sounds. Wont be to much longer and ill be issued a truck. Seems the truck they have lined up for me is going to be a 06 Ford F-650 Super-Duty extended cab rollback with air-ride. A really nice truck from what i saw of it as it was in a shop bay getting a full service done on it.

    Whew!!! Ok heres the Update
    3 days of training learning their way of loading the vehicle, securing the vehicle and then unloading the vehicle. Then there is their paperwork. So for 3 days I have worked with 3 different Drivers working their trucks while they supervise then report back to the manager. Now for these 3 days I make nothing the Training Driver collects all the commission the truck makes. Man am I glad that’s over with. As predicted I have been issued Truck #404 a 2008 Ford F650, extended cab, with a 21 foot Jerr-Dan Rollback, 2 tool boxes, light bar, Air Brakes and Air Ride control with the option to release the Air from the rear Air bags thus lowering the rear of the truck to load small cars easier. (Pictures to follow as soon as i wash her up nice and pretty) Today was the first day I was out by myself My truck brought in just over $300 than makes by pay for the day about $100 thats twice what I was making for the last Prick I drove for and with less hours and a whole lot less screaming on the radio. Man I live for this ****!!!!

    The Hours are long and the heat is all but unbearable. Learning a whole new area and not falling behind on the calls. Is so stressful. I been getting by on 4-5 hours sleep a night getting up early working late. But the money isn’t far behind and its all worth it. It keeps me away from my girlfriend and her kids and I see a Ford Super-Duty in my near future. I liked driving Wrecker before when i was getting ripped off but now I’m really loving it.
