    Hello everyone,

    I'm working on a "WeatherTech" floor mats commercial in Chicago that is shooting this weekend.

    We're looking to rent a Red Ford F-350 super duty or similar pickup with a plow to feature in the TV spot.

    Must be a newer model, clean and without any body damage.


    Thought I'd post here and see if anyone on this forum lives in the Chicagoland area and might be interested.

    Vehicle would need to be dropped off in the city on friday, we shoot the commercial on sunday, vehicle would be ready for pickup on monday. The project would pay $600 for the vehicle and you would get to see your rig on TV!!

    If Interested, please send photos to neander.jay@gmail.com.

    thanks,
    jay

    Hey guys,

    I can see how this offer might seem unusual, and if you're not interested I completely understand.


    For anyone who may be interested, this is not a scam. This is the first time I've had to track down a snow plow but I do rent "picture cars" with some regularity. Sometimes classic muscle cars and sometimes we need nothing-special minivans. Generally paying $300, more if it's a muscle car etc.

    The $600 was the number I was given, my apologies if that seems low, it's what I have to work with. I do have a few takers but if anyone is still interested my email is below, we are still looking for more options.

    Regarding timeline, we would now only need the truck for 1/2 the day on sunday (not on friday as mentioned before). We can also provide a certificate of insurance that would make the production company liable for your vehicle while on set.

    thanks for your time,
    - jay

    Here's what ur missing,Example

    My 2014 super duty sticker is 66K plus 5K for plow plus all the extras I have, ur offering less then 1% of value. Now maybe 1K would sound better..... 2K I would wash it.....and u can pick it up across the street from the weather Tech office in DG

    I don't know why you guys are beating this post up.

    If you have your logo on the truck, it's free, or shall I say someone is paying you to advertis.

    If they have all the insurance ddocuments, then I would jump all over it.

    Unfortunatel, I own white trucks.. .. .

    We need to move to Chicago, or New York. Half day call it six hours 100 an hour doesn't sound bad to me.
