WE PICK YOU UP WHEN YOU ARE DOWN!
This is the Motto for the Jasper Exxon Towing and Recovery Service in Jasper, Texas. Let me share a story with you.
A few days ago, a Big Rig Driver using his trusty GPS found himself on a narrow county road, instead of the State Highway he thought he was on. He realized he was in real trouble when he could find nowhere to turn around. His trouble multiplied when night time caught up with him. It really got bad when he found himself jack knifed in an unforgiving ditch.
He knew he needed a wrecker to get him out of the mess he was in. Someone told him about a local wrecker service. I won’t call names, but it rhymes with matches. They did not send out a wrecker. They sent out an estimator. He estimated it would cost the Truck Driver between $2,500.00 and $5,000.00 to pull him out of that ditch.
Then someone suggested they try a wrecker service from Many. That service declined the job but, they did give the Driver the number of Jasper Exxon Towing and Recovery Service! Alan Clark put on his superman boots and road his fire-engine red trusty wrecker to the scene of the misadventure were he quietly went to work.
Alan looked at the task at hand. He didn’t say a whole lot, but he studied the situation thoroughly then went to work. He pulled a little this way to keep the trailer from turning over. Then he changed angles and tugged gingerly to avoid damage. He changed angles numerous times. He toiled at the job for 4 or 5 hours as I was told by Mrs. Madeline Flowers whose son, Miles, was assisting in the task.
At long last the truck was back on the road, none the worse for ware, and the Driver was ecstatic. It did not cost him/his company, $2,500.00-$5,000! Alan Clark charged the man $450.00 for the service! I stopped by the office in Jasper today to tell Alan how proud I was of him for doing an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. Alan wasn’t in, but his Dad, Leon, was there. I told him the story as it had been told to me. It was the first he had heard of it. Alan is not one to blow his own bugle but, I will.
