Motor Cycle Towing Business Offers Business Opportunities to U.S. Veterans


Grandpas Motor Cycle Towing offers Vets Opportunities for Self Employment

By Eric “Grandpa” Olson

First, let me introduce myself. In the Central Florida area all my customers just call me grandpa. My real name is Eric R. Olson, but to my granddaughters I am “PaPa”. So see, I really am a Grandpa! It’s just that Brandi and Kristen use a different version for Grandpa.

Now I have been in the motorcycle towing business now for almost 3 years. When I started, most of my friends and relatives thought I was losing it. Well I really lost it many years before this, but I will not go into that right now…

Okay, one of my neighbors is in the towing business – towing cars and trucks only. He told me that he would not tow motorcycles because of the liability risk. So I went on the internet and found the hydraulic unit with a steel deck. It was not really designed for motorcycles but I used it anyway. Now I have had several aluminum decks made locally for me that fit for motorcycles. The one I have now is perfect. A local company in the central Florida area makes them for me. With my first truck, I set out trying to get my business going.

Well NO Harley Davidson dealers wanted to talk to me. So when I had a Harley Heritage on the back with a flat tire, I took pictures of it and wrote a letter to Harley Davidson and included the picture. It was not the most friendly letter, if you know what I mean. But about a week or so later I received a phone call from a lady from Harley Davidson stating that she had received my letter and that she would see that it got into the right hands.

Well after a few more days I received a phone call from Road America. The person on the other end of the phone said that they had received a fax from Harley Davidson requesting that Grandpas become a vendor.

Well that was just the beginning of Grandpas.

I now tow for 24 national accounts through Road America, Cross Country, Geico and a few more. In the three 3 year period of towing thousands of motorcycles, Grandpas has never had a claim for damages. That’s unheard of in the motorcycle towing business!

The national companies have told me several times that they would like me o expand my business to other areas around the country. The best way I have found to do it, is to offer a “Consultant Agreement”.

Obviously, there is no better people I would rather work with than today’s U.S. Veterans. So I have set it up properly to empower those who are qualified to get into this great business.

So, I will, for a fee, instruct qualified individuals on the way to hook up the many different motorcycles safely and the ways and means to set-up and operate their motorcycle towing business.

They will buy the equipment that I have been using. I will also set up their truck with everything needed to tow motorcycle safely.

For information please go to where you can get contact information for “Grandpas Motorcycle Towing” or just click on my postings for business opprtunities in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisana, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, on Arkansas on

Thank you and see you on the road, Grandpa!

    Hello bloggers, here’s an excerpt from an article I published a while ago on locating jobs in the US:

    Nowadays, one of the job seekers’ biggest help is the immense Internet database. Many companies are hiring people over the Internet, some of them testing the candidates in advance and others by just looking at the resumes and performing online interviews. Also, there are plenty of online recruitment agencies, which are very helpful to both categories: employers and candidates.

    Some of these agencies offer even consulting and professional reorientation courses. Competing on the work market is a beneficial experience for most of the job seekers as they are always in touch with the employers’ requests and demanding and they also learn to evaluate themselves.

    Consulting courses are very helpful for a job seeker as they gain precious information about how to create a strong resumes, cover letters, and how to present themselves at a job interview or how to negotiate your salary. If you think you are prepared for a certain position, but there are no vacancies at the time, you can simply go directly to the certain institution, leave your CV and maybe if you are lucky, you will have a spontaneous interview, which will automatically get you hired.

    While looking for a job in the US you have to start by having a positive way of thinking. The US employment market is very dynamic and changes occur every second. You have to be prepared to adapt to changes really fast and to keep following your aim. While looking for a job, try to take advantage of your spare time (if any) and prepare yourself for the job that waits for you. Read more about the company, which has selected you for a job interview next week. This way not only you gain more information, but you will also be able to decide if this is the job you are looking for, if it really suits you.

    Anyhow, it is best not to cancel a job interview even if you have the feeling that it won’t suit you. Just give it a try, this can be a good experience and you never know, maybe it is the job you were looking for. You can also use the following resources if you are looking to find a job in Colorado, find a job in Georgia, find a job in Idaho, find a job in Indiana, find a job in Kentucky, find a job in New Jersey
