We possess one the nation’s most recognized and modern fleets of heavy-duty tow trucks for damage-free towing of tractor trailers. We dispatch from 8 locations in the St. Louis metro area for local and long-distance towing of trucks, combination vehicles, buses, and specialized equipment.  


Our team of professionals possess decades of industry experience. We utilize the industries’ most powerful equipment, including multiple 30- to 75-ton rotators and the first Miller Industries’ M100 100-ton sliding rotator for swift clearance of accident scenes and complex recoveries.


Multiple sets of air cushions assist our recovery operations when conditions are favorable for damage-free lifts of loaded trailers. Most commercial vehicle insurance carriers rank us as a preferred vendor for value-added services like air cushion recovery.


We made significant investments in specialized equipment including skid steers, message boards, and lighting systems to reduce delays and vendor dependence. Our specialty trailers include flatbeds, gondolas, livestock with pens, low-boys, reefers, and van units.

LOAD Transfers

Our working relationships with several local scale masters allows us to work onsite with mobile docking or bring units to our facility to reduce downtime. Our team is skilled in load transfers, reworking damaged loads, cargo containment, and sorting and repalletizing damaged goods to reduce product loss or rejection.
