Extreme towing {costs}

Towing is expensive. Great business idea!

Have you seen the new signs for towing up near the Shipyard? What a racket!

Here’s what the signs say exactly:

Unauthorized parking in an assigned space is prohibited and vehicles will be town at the vehicle owners expense JOHN’S MAIN AUTO BODY – 1445 Union Turnpike, North Bergen, NJ 07047. 201-867-3744.

Towing $175
Flatbed $200
Recovery and maneuvering $50
Dollies-Gojacks $50
Storage $50 per day
After hr release fee $50. 24 hr release
Heavy duty charges are higher

(consumers may contact the division of consumer affairs by calling 1-800-342-5846 prompt 4)

Heavy Duty Rates
Towing $175 Recovery $225 per hr
Wheelift $225 per hr per unit
Underlift $225 per hr per unit
Air $50 Axle $50 Shaft $50
Lights $50 Decouple $75
Storage $100 per day per unit

So how much will it cost if they tow? I’m not 100% sure!

I’m guessing a regular car you have: $175 for the tow + $50 to manuever (isn’t that part of towing?) + $50 for a dolly to slide it out + $50 for storage and $50 to pick it up. $375 total plus probably some taxes or other transportation based fee. So always have $400 in your wallet or checking account MINIMUM when coming to Hoboken!

Maybe I’ll buy a tow truck. Tow just three cars a day and you’re making half a million a year!
