    Body work needed for when my guys got rear ended.

    12 days to fix, shop call and says there frame damage $10000.00, they called the insurance will know tomorrow what's up.

    It's a 2010 75,000 miles, that plus we're trying to get compensated for lost income.

    At what point do they say hay will give you the money and take the van?

    Then I just get another used van and have the machine moved.

    I'm back up and running in days not weeks!

    Will see.

    So, maybe you're not as cheap as you thought you were.

    They totaled the van, I got have a flat bed take it and have the machine taken out. Then give the van to the insurance.

    Buy a van and have equipment reinstalled and get new lettering for van.

    This sucks!

    You can ask the insurance agent what the buy back price is.. If it's worth it to you.. Your guys were driving it fine for the mean time..

    I had a 1981 Vw rabbit truck I shipped in.. Labor Day weekend I got rear ended.. The insurance agent totaled the vehicle due to the cost of getting new panels and said it's just cheaper to pay me out.. Then she asked if I wanted to buy it back for $500.. My coilovers on the front of it was $700 alone.. I bought it back and sold it for $1,200...

    The repair shop pulled it apart said it's not drivable as is.

    Frame damage sent over 10k

    So need to get it to Santa Clarita remove the machine.

    My thought is use the insurance money pay off the truckmount.

    Then I'll still only have one payment.

    The lady that designed my logo also works for Harvest on their special projects. She designed this sticker and the stages for the events. IMG_1942.jpg

    IMG_3526.JPG IMG_3527.JPG Used both trucks today and went home early, let my other truck handle the day.

    My helper Phil threw his back out was off until today, I've been killing it since the other truck went down.

    Got my truck back Monday night.

    We ended up getting 16k for the the totaled van and a little more for lost income.

    So now pay off the truckmount and only have one payment.
