Re: Intact Class Action LawSuit (reply)
I'm sure Dara worked for Allstate before! That's when Express Roadside started really. I have heard from meetings that Express Roadside is basically god to Intact and everyone else is scum. That's where they compare rates to!

Re: 2 car carriers and CVOR in Ontario (reply)
I have only ever pulled in when loaded with equipment or freight on our flatbeds. Never in wreckers! I had a driver that pulled into the 1000 island scales with a wrecker that had a hydro platform (a device) on the hitch. They pulled...

Re: 2 car carriers and CVOR in Ontario (reply)

Re: Which Would Work The Best? (reply)
