Towing in Summit County is very diverse. It is not just the simple act of moving vehicles from place to place, it involves moving all kinds of things such as trucks, trailers, construction equipment, machinery, sheds and virtually anything that will fit on a 21’x 8’ flatbed tow truck. In some cases it even takes the place of a jungle gym when the preschoolers at the local day care see it.
Towing in the mountains is a very difficult and dangerous job. That is why it is so important to hire a company with professionally trained staff. Most vehicles today are built using a uni-body construction. This means that the same sheet metal that is used on the sides of your vehicle is incorporated into the structure of the vehicle. Manufactures do this to lower the weight of the vehicle, however this design can also be damaged very easily if towed incorrectly. This is where the education and experience of the tow operator comes into play. The driver needs to be educated in all the factory tow points and experienced enough to know exactly where these points are on all types of vehicles. By keeping this level of quality with our employees we can guarantee damage free towing.
Towing in and around Summit County, Colorado is our largest source of business. We are the preferred towing company for many local shops and dealerships like Groove Subaru/Chrysler in Silverthorne, which is one of two dealerships in Summit County. Groove sells and services Subaru, Jeep, Chrysler, and Dodge vehicles and it is a pleasure to work with them. Towing a Subaru to Groove is not uncommon on heavy traffic days going up to the Eisenhower Tunnel. For reasons unknown, the stop and go traffic ascending out of Silverthorne tends to be problematic on the clutches of both Audis and Subarus. Unlike the Audi that will need to be towed to a dealership in Denver, the Subaru can be towed to a local dealership such as Groove. Fortunately for other motorists requiring warrantee work, there is a Ford dealership called Summit Ford in Silverthorne. We regularly tow to these dealerships as well as to a handful of other local shops. If you find your vehicle is overheating going up to the tunnel, or you have smoking brakes going down Vail Pass do not stress. We will be able to recommend a good auto repair shop in Breckenridge, Frisco, or Silverthorne.
