need goose neck trailer towed wisconson to long island


Recommended Posts

Hi

3 Our truck broke down in madison wisconsin with a 2 car goose neck trailer with 2 cars on it . WE need to get the trailer with the cars to long island ny.

Please give a call 516 305 9787

Your auto insurance will not provide liability or comprehensive coverage for

anyone who is not a member of your immediate household if they tow this trailer.

Furthermore, insurance on the vehicles on the trailer will have no coverage

if someone else tows this ....

If you can't go back to get your trailer with another truck or fix your truck,

you need to hire a carrier that is fully insured for both the trailer and the vehicles.

The automobile policy of the person towing your trailer will not cover

a trailer not owned by them or the cars on it.

Ultimately, the owner of the trailer is liable for all liability claims

if the trailer is towed with permission by someone else.

I am going to Green Bay in the next week or so. I have a 2011 F250 S/D I can install a 5 wheel. Give me a call anytime maybe we can get together on a reasonable cost. I do this trip about every 3 weeks. (732) 632-2768

Thanks

Bob

Your truck is not rated to tow this load.

According to Ford ......

Properly equipped, the F-250 Super Duty can tow up to 14,000 pounds

with a conventional trailer setup.

Maximum payload capacity tops out at 4,050 pounds.

Try driving thru Ohio - Pennsylvania - New York with an F250

towing a gooseneck trailer with (2) full size cars on it and see

what Vehicle Enforcement has to say about it ....

If you are towing a trailer not registered in your name

you have to stop at the inspection stations ......

Towing a trailer you do not own ?

From Wisconsin to New York you will pass thru:

Wisconsin - Illinois - Indiana - Ohio - Pennsylvania - New York

Madison, WI to Long Island - Google Maps

Since you don't own the trailer, you will have to get a trip permit thru

every state you pass thru - that means you are subject to a safety inspection

for the trailer and your tow vehicle at every weigh station and safety check point

you pass .....

I have a car booked PA to MI. Then from WI back to NJ. I have never had to stop at the weight stations (if there open). I am not a commercial hauler. I make this trip every 3 weeks to visit my daughter. In New Jersey I can pull anyones trailer as long I have Insurance. Also the state of registration has president because the traffic laws are supposed to be reciprocal in Motor vehicle issues. The only problem I have seen is the Officers don't know the laws of all states, I have argued (legally and I am not an attorney, alls courts hold,) "That ingorance of the law is no excuse." Where by Ingorance of the law by a enforcement agent is unacceptial. (I come from a family of NYCPD). This was accepted In a Michigain Court for a speeding ticket I recived where there was no Speed Zone Ahead warning signs posted and Michigan Law requires this. Also In NJ the Camera monitered intersections and right turn on red are a conflict that has to be looked into.

When you tow your personal trailer with your personal tow vehicle loaded

with your personal car(s) - you do not have to neccesarily stop at the

the weigh and check stations in the state(s) I mentioned ...

However, Pennsylvania and New York periodically turn rest areas into

check stations to inspect all towed trailers for safety violations.

Once you hook up your tow vehicle to a trailer not owned - not registered

in your name - the game changes.

I am only posting to advise - inform - enlighten.

I do understand what your saying and do thank you. I carry a NJ State Inspection Law printed by the state with me you would be surprised when the inspectors read that in New Jersey " No Truck Registered for 5000 lbs. Is required or can be subjected to any safety inspection." By the way I have referred a number of people for moves I know I couldn't do to you. Also I will be moving to Green Bay with in a year Looking to have 3 cars moved from herein NJ to G/B at the same time. 1999 Mercury Grand Marque 1996 Geo tracker & 1932 Ford Coupe. I let you know when so you can quote me a price.

Thanks Bob
