Comments Off on Specialty Towing – USPS NGDV Transport from WI to VA
It was Thursday December 15, 2022 and we were just finishing up the day and getting ready to go home. At around 6:30 pm our phone rang. I answered and USPS from Fairfax Virginia was on the line. The gentleman on the phone started by saying I have a project that we want to see if you can help us with and proceeded to explain the project.
He told me USPS’s NGDV (Next Generation Delivery Vehicle) one of a kind prototype was in Oshkosh, WI and needed to be transported to Fairfax, VA. He went on to explain that the vehicle didn’t run or drive but did roll. The dimensions of the vehicle was 9.5 feet tall, 7.5 feet wide and 19.5 feet long. No problem, I thought, this [...]
Comments Off on Tesla Model S, 3, X, Y Towing and Transport Instructions
We receive calls frequently asking how to properly tow and transport Tesla vehicles from other towing companies and decided it would be in the public interest to make a simple page where owners and towing companies can both obtain Tesla towing and transport instructions quickly and easily. Below you can find links directly to Tesla’s transport instructions for your year and model.
We believe both the towing service provider as well as the owner of the Tesla in need of towing service should be aware of the procedures necessary to safely transport a Tesla without causing damage to the vehicle. While Tesla has made the towing and transport procedures public, we realized that the towing procedures are not easily accessible for towing companies or Tesla owners.
Knowledge of the towing procedures for the tow operator is [...]

Comments Off on Why Purchase a Pre-Owned Vehicle from Miller Auto?
There are many sources to obtain a pre-owned vehicle. In nearly every town or city you can usually find multiple used car dealerships. On Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist, you are sure to find the exact make and model you are looking for. The difficult part of purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is finding one at a good price and one that is a good quality vehicle.
Let’s talk first about purchasing a vehicle from a private individual. One benefit of purchasing a vehicle from a private individual is in many cases they have owned the vehicle for a while so they should know quite a lot about the vehicle and the vehicle’s history. If they maintained the vehicle, they should be able to tell you about its service history and provide you service records on the vehicle. When shopping for a pre-owned vehicle from a private [...]
Comments Off on Miller Auto’s Entry Into The EV Market
Over the last year we have been doing extensive research into the electric vehicle (EV) market for the purpose of becoming the leading pre-owned EV dealer in our area. Recently, we acquired a 2020 Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD to expand our knowledge and give us hands-on experience. We have had the Tesla for three weeks and here is some of the knowledge we have gained since we obtained it.

I believe most car people have what I call mechanical remorse. To explain, mechanical remorse is that feeling after you have floored a car, while the engine is doing all it can to provide you all the acceleration and power [...]
