As a St. Paul, Minnesota based family business, Smitty and Michelle have owned many towing companies all across the nation and they know there are many tow truck companies to choose from, so they rely on their customer service and affordable tow truck rates to differentiate their tow truck company from others.
When choosing a tow truck be aware that many services still require payment in cash. If you’re like most people today, you rarely carry a lot of cash. That’s why Smitty Big Towing and Recovery is pleased to offer their customers a choice of payment options.

“Michelle is an angel. I have never worked with anyone so patient, kind, and helpful. Her job is to schedule towing, but she did SO MUCH MORE.Two days before our big cross country move, our car was wrecked. We were scrambling to find someone to do the work quickly and affordably. We finally found someone in the St. Paul area and just needed a tow. We found Smitty’s big towing and what a blessing. Michelle gave us an excellent rate (and accommodated our special payment needs) and we were on our way.Well, we thought we were and then all of our plans fell through. In one day we had two different mechanics flake on us (the second one just minutes before our appointment)! All the while, we stayed in close contact with Michelle, and she worked with us with all of our scheduling, canceling, and rescheduling. After nearly giving up, she referred us to her mechanic.I have never experienced anyone more professional and kind. At any point she could have stopped working with us, but she didn’t. I personally spoke to her 15 times (I counted) and she spoke with my spouse at least half a dozen times. Without her help, I would probably still be crying and feeling absolutely loss, powerless, and trapped. We are back in business!If I am ever in MN again and I need a tow, I am calling Smitty’s.”
For most people, their car is the second greatest investment they make (after their home), so you definitely want a tow truck company who understands and appreciates the importance and value of your car. One way a tow truck company does this is by using a flatbed tow truck. The flatbed tow truck is one of the three types of tow trucks used by tow truck operators. The sling tow truck, the one with the hook and chain, are no longer used as often, except to tow damaged vehicles that no longer have back or front wheels — or those damaged cars with steel bumpers (which are fewer and fewer every year). The reason tow truck companies diminished use of the sling tow truck is because they scratch or damage the car from having to wrap a chain around the frame or axle of the car. HowStuffWorks even says, “Cars equipped with all-wheel drive cannot be towed with a sling, since it can cause problems with the car’s drivetrain.”
