ABF would like to welcome Sea Tow to the family. *Captain Mike Kern is the new owner of Sea Tow central Texas and has some great deals for ABF members.
To me this is cheap insurance, basically $170 bucks a year or $14 bucks a month covers your rear end if you get in a bind. *Coverage can also extend to your trailer. So no more worry of a blow out and being stuck on the side of the road. *Which if you have ever left your rig on the side of the road to go get parts, you know what kind of sick feeling it is.
Sea Tow is a call away!
