I have a wrecked M1074 that needs to be moved out of Dublin, VA and moved to a repair shop or possibly transport to CA. If someone can assist in getting it out of there it would greatly be appreciated. The frame from what I have been told by the tow truck driver is bent pretty bad and if it were to be put on a flatbed as is it would be over width so he recommended the frame be cut and it loaded in 2 pieces. The owner of the tow yard said that he would give permission to cut the frame, but whoever will be doing the work would need to sign a release of liability. If you know of anyone that can do the work please PM me.

Thanks
Daniel

Is this an articulated vehicle like a loader ? If so can they straighten it out into a straight line ?

Thinking out loud, does the value of the few salvageable parts exceed the transportation costs to CA?

I'm slotted to return to the US for a course in May and it looks like we might have weekends off. If so, it's about a ~4 hour drive to Dublin. I have no idea what a commercial outfit might charge but I'd be happy to devote a day and a half with a torch (mine is in storage so you'd have to provide) and see what I can do.

Once it's cut into manageable and straight pieces, what're the next steps? Out of curiosity, what's the approximate price to have it delivered to CA?

If your traveling I-70 I will help if you have problems. I have a C/T and hand tools that are mobile and a pickup and 16' trailer and a mini van if you need transport. PM me for phone numbers.
