Our Staff


       As one of the Santa Cruz County oldest towing companies, we are proud of our locally born and raised staff. Our staff are professional, well-trained and courteous. We have invested in our staff, providing them with training in the safe handling of state of the art equipment for damage free towing and recovery. Our staff are all certified by the leading towing certification organization and have a combined experience of ninety-six years!


       Our owner, Mark Brownell, has personally worked in local towing all his life. Mark has been towing since he was sixteen and has thirty-five years of towing experience under his belt; over a third of the combined ninety-six years of total towing experience.


       Unlike some towing companies, we are not reckless cowboys. All of our staff pursue ongoing training to enhance their skills. Our drivers are California Tow Truck Association and WreckMaster Certified.
