Ralph specializes in HEAVY-DUTY towing & recoveries and has 50+ years experience. Ralph says, "I've been doing this for over 50 years. Why? Because I really love what I do, and I love doing it all. I love towing long hauls, especially, when it's cold and raining. I love the challenge of winching 18-wheelers out of ditch pulls, mud pulls, accident recoveries like rollovers whether they are loaded with product or not and when they're slanting over to a side, it makes the job even tougher, but we know how to do it right. My his favorite part of the job is figuring out how to solve the most difficult recoveries."

Ram's favorite part of the job is knowing how that overtime he arrives at an accident, there is a "new problem to figure out." Some of the craziest tows he's performed include the following:
* Recovering a boat dangling from the Indian Point Bridge.
* Recovering a car that ended up sitting on top of a barrier cement post...after the CCPD police officer witnessed other towing companies come & go because they were unable to perform the recovery, the officer said Ram couldn't do it with a flat bed. Thanks to Ram's experience & skill set, Ram proved him wrong. Ram is proud to share with us, that he learned all of his recovery skills & "tricks of the trade" while working with us here at Texas Wrecker Service.
