Vehicle Recovery, Rain or Shine
24hr Towing and Vehicle Recovery
Towing is a challenging job because the road conditions can be dangerous as a result of wet and snowy weather, and the number of car situations encountered are endless. Each car requires slightly different towing hookup procedures, different equipment and perhaps a specific tow truck. With our years of experience, we have the capabilities to tow cars and trucks of all makes and models.
Our tow truck services are 24hr and we have different trucks that are used for specific situations. Flatbed tow trucks are the most common, also known as a “rollback truck.” We also have a boom and integrated tow truck, and this allows us to recover a car from a ditch, snow bank, or trench—this is our winch out, or vehicle recover service. So we’re always ready for two-wheel towing, which is common for cars with automatic transmission, and flatbed towing, which is common for all-wheel-drive transmission cars.
When you give us a call, we’ll ask you for details about your car and your location so we can first, determine the appropriate truck for the job, and the distance your car needs to be traveled. We’ll give you our estimated time of arrival, and an estimate for the job cost. Keep in mind that once the tow truck operator arrives on site, there may be additional services required. Whether you need help day or night, rain or shine, we’ll be happy to tow your car local and long distance.
Most of our business is local towing to neighboring cities, however we can also help with long distance and heavy duty towing. The cost for a long distance towing service is more of course, due to the cost per mile driven. Long distance tows are regarded as a distance of 100 miles or more in a single direction. Speak with one of or tow truck technicians and we’ll assist you with whatever you need, or point you in the right direction if we are not equipped to help.
In addition to towing, we offer common roadside assistance services. Services include flat tire repair, fuel delivery, battery jumpstarts, and gas fill ups, and vehicle lockout. You’ll be happy to hear about our affordable service. From the moment you call us, we’ll be ready with a fast response and try our very best to always arrive at our customer’s location as soon as possible. Our technicians are highly trained and for local residents, we are usually able to arrive in 20–30 minutes. As with towing, we will give you price estimates for roadside assistance tasks. One of the most common jobs we get called for are flat tire repairs, battery jumpstarts, and vehicle lockouts for those that locked their keys in their car. When we get called for a flat tire, we inspect your vehicle upon arrival to assess the tire situation and if there are any other issues affecting your car. If your tire is able to be repaired, the process will take a few minutes. In the event we are unable to repair or replace the tire, we will be able to tow your car to the nearest gas station, auto shop, or wherever you require. The procedure for towing service is always evolving and we are finding better ways to add to our knowledge. This helps us to provide better services to our customers more efficiently. The end result is that we’re able to maintain the affordable price points. Our Oregon customers trust us because we hold ourselves to a high standard both internally, and in our work.
Average local towing services are charged with the hookup, which may range from $75–$200, depending on the vehicle and the situation, and there is also a cost per mile driven.

Can a car with automatic transmission be towed with the drive wheels on the ground?
Towing a car with the drive wheels on the ground can result in severe damage to the drive train. It is never recommended to let the drive wheels run on the road during transport.
Do AWD cars require a flatbed tow truck?
While you may not need a flatbed truck specifically, all wheels will need to be lifted off the ground during transport. The best and safest way to tow an all-wheel-drive car without damaging it’s drive train is with a flatbed tow truck.
What is two-wheel towing?
Two wheel towing is when two wheels are lifted off the ground, usually the drive wheels. This is a quick and efficient way to tow a car short distances. Cars towed this way are usually front wheel drive.
What’s the difference between local and long distance towing?
Long distance towing is when the driving distance required each way is 100 miles or more. Of course, for long distance tows, the total cost will be more expensive, due to the additional miles driven.
