I really want to start a business soon... I just passed a towing company and saw about 2 dozen wreckers parked, and realized a towing gig is something I would LOVE to do. Maybe even do some repo's if it can work. I've used/driven wreckers and rollbacks before with and without a load, and it seemed like no big deal those times. Maybe I'm under-estimating it... Really, how complicated can it be? Every time I've called on a tow, it's been pretty easy work for the tow driver, and he gets a wad of cash from me. When I had my pickup brought 25 miles home on a rollback, it cost me $80 (I tipped 10, so $90), and took him less than an hour. If his truck at worst got 5 miles to the gallon, that's about $10-15 in fuel. The rest goes back into his pocket or business costs. Towing wrecks can probably even charge more, and go shorter distances, plus storage charges, but I guess I'd need zoned land for that. Then again, I'm wary of getting into a biz that can be drastically affected by fuel costs. Another thing prompting me to consider towing is that I found a reallllly nice late 90s Chevy wrecker for around $4K in New York... And an old Ford wrecker for $300 in New Jersey... I'm in a stupid mode lately... Everything I look at/use/do I try to think of how I can make it a business opportunity... Then everything I come up with that I think is completely unique, I find has already been done.
