Tourists come for the rafting and skiing in the quaint little town of Salida Colorado, and the last thing they want to encounter is being stranded from an accident, car troubles or being stuck in inclement weather. But it does happen far too often. That is why Alpine Towing & Recovery hired local certified tow truck and recovery service experts to service the 5,000 Salida residents and the thousands of tourists who travel here through out the summer and winter months to play.
Alpine Towing has two full time tow truck drivers in this town, where one is always in service and on-call, and the other is his backup during heavy snowfall when the need for towing services is greater. Both drivers are WreckMaster-trained and HAZMAT certified, and they’re often called to assist local police and the State Patrol when accidents occur.
Also, with Salida being a crossroads between larger metro areas, many truckers frequently find themselves traveling in the area. When large trucks break down, go off the road, or get blown over from high winds that plague the open areas, it becomes increasingly more dangerous for the truckers, other motorists who happen upon them or the tow truck service specialists. Fortunately, Alpine has larger equipment nearby that can handle any size vehicle. Towing a large semi and trailer is done in the same way as a regular pickup truck, but with much larger equipment. The 50-ton tow master has 50,000 pound winches that can recover most vehicles, even up steep embankments.
Alpine Towing & Recovery is deeply entrenched in the communities it services, providing support to local civic events and charities. They believe in giving back to the communities that support them though sponsoring junior sports teams and other charities.
There is only one tow truck service that has modern tow trucks, professional drivers, and training for any vehicle recovery situation in Salida. Give us a call for any towing or roadside assistance needed.
