Towing Tips, Tricks and Tidbits: A Towing Services Blog

Hello! My name is Tony, and this blog is all about towing and towing services. I used to work for a small municipality, and we did everything, from clearing snow, to street sweeping, to towing abandoned vehicles, to cleaning up graffiti. Now, I work with my wife on a small sausage company we have created so I am no longer in that role. I have a bit more time than I did when I was working, and as a result, I get to spend extra time out on the trails with my Land Cruiser. Unfortunately, I sometimes get stuck playing in the mud. Luckily, I know a lot about towing. In this blog, I am going to share all of those tips with you. Thank you for reading!
