Not Your Everyday Towing Company

When Mike and Lainie Phillips started their family-owned company, All American Towing and Recovery, six years ago, they didn’t want to be looked at as just another towing company showing up at the scene.

“We wanted to be all-inclusive,” Mike said. “No matter the situation — call one number, and our team would get it done.”

Mission accomplished. All American Towing is not the everyday tow truck that shows up to get rid of an improperly parked or impounded vehicle. They are a full-service towing and recovery service that partners with police and fire personnel and everyday folks just like you for whatever life throws your way. They have over 15 state-of-the-art, late-model towing and recovery units ranging from car and bus carriers to the largest rotating heavy-duty wreckers in the area. Their services include everything from your standard towing and load transfers to tractor-trailer accident and recovery, hazmat and accident scene remediation, heavy-duty winching, tire changing, jump-starts and pullstarts, fuel delivery, and more.

They also offer 24-7 live dispatch, so they are there for you even if it’s 3 or 4 in the morning.

“We strive to offer a higher level of service than your typical towing company,” Lainie said. “We cross-train with fire departments and the police so that our heavy equipment can even be used in rescue situations. We’ve done quite a few of those, actually, and it feels really good to know that we’ve helped save lives.”

He added, “Roughly 50% of our business is law enforcement tows. The other half is the general public when they are broken down and need help.”

Mike is a third-generation towing professional, and he’s never imagined doing anything different than getting into the family business. Both he and Lainie are hands-on in everything that All American Towing and Recovery does, and they pride themselves on honesty, integrity, and professionalism.

“We are incredibly appreciative to be a part of the communities we serve,” Mike and Lainie said. “We do a lot of sponsorships for sports teams and schools in the area, and it’s something we thoroughly enjoy. We like to be in a situation to help the community that has helped us all these years.”
