I literally don't know the first thing about towing, but eventually my drift habit will warrant towing my car to and from the track and I just don't even know where to start.


Maybe an old Tahoe...
but parking. UGH.
I'm thinking about converting my parents' old RV to a flatbed. Stretched hilux frame with a beefy rear end.

I'm at 40 years with USAA, only auto/property insurance I've ever had. It's not the cheapest, but you can't beat the service.

You're just a single sale, and thus have barely any leverage.

The "savings" are not worth having no one in your corner.


EDIT:

I'll never forget when my dad started writing with... (company) . I was so proud of him for how he dropped them.
When he started with them, he wrote all of his own policies with them because the rates were good. He wrote a ton of business with them.

Then he had a claim or something with them and they treated him horribly, run-arounds, cycling back into automated systems, hour hold times.... not putting together that he was an agent for them.
Finally, he got someone on the line and said something along the liens of " if this is how you're treating me as a customer, I'm sure as hell not going to send any more to you. I'm done with (company. You can burn our contract while I re-write all my customers."

and he fucking did. I learned valuable lesson about business and my father that day.
Dude, sounds like he is a great men. If he still working as an agent AND near me, I'll gladly spent extra $ to have him as my agent.

Haha. unfortunately, he is not licensed in your state. He also sold his business and moved to take care of my grandmother and is no longer in the insurance business. Had his own for just shy of 20 years.

Apart from some political misgivings, my father is my role model for what it "means to be a man."

Amica is the closest civilian equivalent, if you qualify. I've been quite happy with them.

Ah.
I would have suggested them...

Your best bet is to find an independent agency in town that makes you feel comfortable and let them shop for you. That's what I recommend you do.

In Shanghai for the week.. The office block that we're based in has a number of basement levels for car parking and they have a car service/wash area.. brilliant idea as they have a captured market!!

Anyway, took walk this lunchtime and saw the following getting a good clean.. don't see many Twins in China! I had to talk to the owner (luckily he had good English). He told me that the Twin is no longer available in China hence not many about.. he's loving his MT GT86!
