Towing Service Saves the Day … And Some Goats!
AJ’s towing service team was called in to help tow a trailer in Stockton, California. When the team arrived on scene, they realized that there was a bit more to this trailer than they were initially told. The driver had been driving a truck hauling a livestock trailer filled with goats! Unfortunately, his truck broke down and he was unable to complete his journey. He found himself, his tractor, and the gooseneck trailer full of goats stuck on the road with no way to get home.
Thankfully, this was a relatively simple task for the team at AJ’s. They were able to be on the scene quickly and were able to quickly hook-up to the client’s trailer and bring it to the desired drop off location. Both the driver and the goats were grateful for the lift; although the goats could not express it as clearly. AJ’s is used to working with a multitude of different clients. That being said, none of their clients were as loud as those goats!
