Calgary Towing FAQ

Answering all the questions about towing services and tow trucks for divers in Calgary.

What kind of tow truck do I need for an all wheel drive car?

The best way to tow an all-wheel-drive car is by making sure the wheels are off the ground.  The easiest way to do this is with a flatbed tow truck.  Don’t worry if you don’t know what kind of transmission you have we can help you when you call. 

Can you tow an automatic vehicle with its wheels on the ground?

With most vehicles, this is not a problem and we can tow using a wheel lift tow truck.  It is recommended to limit distance and speed when towing cars with their wheels on the ground.  We won’t transport your car unless it is safe to do so.

What are your hours of operation?

Our tow truck operators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We don’t close and are prepared to come to rescue you and your vehicle when you need a tow truck service in Calgary. 

Do I need to be with my vehicle to have it towed?

No.  We can make arrangements over the phone so our driver knows how and where to move your vehicle.  When you call for a tow truck let the operator know you won’t be there when they arrive on the scene. 

Can you tow a vehicle out of my spot?

Unfortunately, we are unable to tow a car that is parked in your spot without authorization from the city.  Call Calgary By-Law enforcement to have the vehicle towed. 

Did you tow my car last night in Calgary?

The city has a contract with a towing company that does all by law and municipal towing.  If your car was towed then call the city of Calgary to find out where it was towed to.
