Light Duty Flatbed Towing Service
With Classic Towing you will experience the latest, cutting-edge towing and recovery technology with our eco-friendly, green emissions Hino and Freightliner flatbed tow trucks. These tow trucks have low profile beds which sit much lower than standard flatbed tow trucks. This clearance allows the proper incline required to load vehicles with extremely low ground clearance without damaging the bumper, valance, or exhaust. To further ensure damage-free towing we are able to employ a soft nylon tie-down system with no hooks or chains to pull, bend, or scratch the vehicle. We maintain a fleet of 5 flatbed tow trucks and offer the very best in flatbed towing and roadside service. We have the right towing and road service equipment for any recovery situation or towing job.
There are many reasons for vehicles to be towed on a flatbed tow truck. On some vehicles, manufacturers specify their vehicles may only be safely towed on a flatbed truck. After all, just as all cars are not made the same way, not all cars are towed the same way. Whether the vehicle is an Aston Martin Elite, an AWD Subaru, or a Toyota Corolla the best way to transport the vehicle is to get all the wheels up off the road. Our commitment to you is to always safely transport your vehicle to its destination in a timely manner, damage-free, and at a reasonable price.
Classic Towing is an expert in recovering vehicles involved in accidents and serve many police departments in this capacity. No matter what situation you find your vehicle in we have the experience and proper equipment to recover your vehicle. We even have experience recovering vehicles that have rolled over, are under water, or stuck upon objects. After the recovery we can store your wrecked or disabled vehicle in our secured storage facility until your insurance company is able to send out an adjuster. If you prefer your vehicle to go directly a collision repair center we would be happy to tow it to the body shop of your choice or will gladly recommend a quality shop such as: Gerber Collision & Glass or Accurate Auto Body.
Ice and snowy conditions? Slick roads? Did you slide off the road and into a snow bank or ditch? Stuck and can’t get out? No problem, Classic Towing has you covered. If you are stuck in the mud, snow, water, in a ditch, or on top of a curb or some other object, we can get you back on the road in a hurry. Proper training and years of experience is the key to winching and recovering a vehicle without further damaging it.

Classic Towing has the equipment to quickly come to the location of your disabled vehicle and change your flat-tire by placing your spare on the vehicle. We torque all lug nuts with an air gun and then by hand using a torque wrench to ensure the wheel is secured to the manufacturer’s specifications. If you do not have a spare tire we can tow your vehicle to the nearest tire shop such as Discount Tires or Firestone.
If your vehicle has run out of gas we can bring you a few gallons to get you to the nearest gas station. Using Google Maps our dispatchers can provide you the address and directions to the nearest filling station.
Classic Towing provides fast and reliable diesel delivery service using our 55 gallon DOT approved storage tank and an electronic, metered pump to deliver diesel fuel.

We may have one in stock or can acquire one at the parts store or truck stop. We will need the year, make, model, and VIN in order to obtain the proper filter.
Jump-starting can be very dangerous if it is not done properly. Many late model vehicles feature extremely sensitive electronics that can be easily damaged by incorrect jump-starting techniques. From foreign to domestics we use only the manufacturer’s recommended methods when jump-starting your vehicle. If your vehicle is unable to start after the jump service has been applied we will tow your vehicle to the location of your choice.

When over-the-road truckers need to unload vehicles, medical equipment, landscaping machinery, or anything else that can slide off a flatbed carrier, Classic Towing is the right company to call for any rollback job.
Don’t trust your bike to just any towing service as motorcycle towing is a complicated process that requires the proper equipment. Classic Towing has both the equipment and experience to load, secure, and transport motorcycles and on our “air-ride” flatbed tow trucks.

Classic, Antique, and Exotic Vehicle Transport (Open Air)
Sometimes a vehicle need a little more attention than others. When you have made a considerable investment in a classic, antique, or exotic vehicle you want to take every provision to protect your vehicle by choosing a towing provider that is competent and has the expertise in transporting these specialty vehicles. Not only does Classic Towing have the proper equipment but also a 25 year proven track record of successfully transporting exotic vehicles without causing damage.
Our towing service is ideal for moving specialty vehicles short distances such as to and from the repair shop, car show, or to its new owner. Our service is not to be used as a long distance shipping option as we do not offer enclosed transportation. We transport all vehicles on flatbed carriers that have “air-ride” low-center-of-gravity beds. These beds sit much lower than a standard flatbed tow truck and therefore offer the correct incline required to load vehicles with very low ground clearance without damaging the bumper, valance, or exhaust. We use only soft nylon straps to load and secure your vehicle. We never use any metal hooks or chains that could scratch painted frames or otherwise pull, bend, dent, or ding your vehicle.
Our experienced technicians understand just how important the visual integrity of your vehicle is to its value and therefore take extreme care in loading, securing, transporting, and unloading your vehicle. In addition, for your protection and peace of mind we carry a $5,000,000.00 dollar insurance policy through Zurich Insurance Group. Zurich is a global insurance provider that has nearly a 140 year history. Beware who you trust your vehicle with as many towing providers are under insured and carry substandard policies through a second rate company that will never pay out on a claim. This is a problem you will never experience when dealing with Classic Towing. In the 25 plus years that we have been operating we have never caused any major damage to a vehicle. However, on the off chance there is damage we will make it right.
