bgchuby01, there's merit in everything you say, and I agree. If I needed someone to tow a large, expensive boat for me, I too would choose the insured, licensed, experienced hauler - as I have in the past.
BUT!...There are some smaller hauls needing to be done on occasion: a small project boat, cargo trailer, jetski, generator, etc., that someone might need shipped from point A to point B. It happens all the time. It's nice to see folks offering a truck when traveling empty. I don't think he was expecting someone to ask him to tow a 46 skater.
I would hate to see this valuable exchange become discouraged on this site. Sometimes, you don't NEED a $2.00/mile professional. I've moved things for people by posting on here, and a lot of others have too. It's simple generosity.
No disrespect meant, just my $0.02
