I'm not a licenced tow driver but my job is driving around heavy excavation equiptment and I have put my car on the float befor with no problem... in your case we would have to use short wooden blocks befor the ramps to get up without riping thing's off witch is not a big deal at all... worst case and we can't get it on... it's not going to cost you anyway...cheers

it is...but I've had such a sh*t expierience when them within the last year, I don't think it's even work the headache...

at one point, CAA was "on strike" and all calls where re-routed to AAA in the US....US AAA was dispatching calls to local trucks here in Canada...a real screw up
