Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds

The 2018 APTO Summer Picnic returns to Cleveland, OH area this year and is already getting a lot of attention. The driver competitions will fill up quickly with many of the previous winners planning to defend their titles. Northeast Ohio is our strongest region representing a large percentage of APTO membership and we expect a huge turnout this year. In addition to the driving competitions and recovery skills challenge, we will continue the very popular Kids Zone with fun inflatables and activities for the kids, truck beauty contests, and vendor, truck and equipment displays. This year, we also have 1-hour demonstration blocks available to all industry vendors that would like to dedicate a full hour (with no other activities to be scheduled other than the competitions) to focus on demonstrating and displaying trucks, products, and equipment.

Don’t miss out on a great advertising opportunity!

The Association of Professional Towers – Ohio (APTO) is the undisputed leader of the Ohio Towing and Recovery industry. We are proud to have developed and published Ohio’s first ever Towing and Recovery Compliance Manual now available to all Ohio towing and recovery professionals. To support Ohio towers, APTO’s legal professionals and executive staff created the first of its kind Ohio Towing and Recovery Compliance Manual: a comprehensive and thorough guide to educate Ohio towers on all Ohio laws and rules impacting their business, provide an analysis of the law in an understandable form, and specifically describe what is needed to stay in compliance.

Incredibly enough, we are already developing the 3rd edition for 2018! This version will include major changes to the Private Property Yow-Away Zone towing and storage rates currently being established by the PUCO, complaint and compliance issues with PUCO rules and regulation, and new towing laws recently passed and now law. As the laws and rules continue to change it is imperative to make the Ohio Towing and Recovery Compliance Manual up to date and available to all towers. None of this would be possible without great industry vendor support. Thank you for considering support of this important manual for Ohio Towers!
