Lift and Tow was founded in 1999. Cal, who is the owner and founder of Lift & Tow, was in need of a tow truck. A new wrecker then was in excess of $40K, and it just wasn’t in the budget. Cal’s brother, an engineer, decided he would kick in the skills if he wanted to build an apparatus to connect under his dual wheeled truck. After several attempts and disappointments, they finally had a unit that worked.
There was a lot of interest in the new tow lift they built. Cal decided to make one for a fellow car dealer. Soon it became apparent there was a need for this type of tow system. Development of the Three Series soon became the Five Series. After some time had passed we realized there was a need for a self loader design. This lift and tow system would be for the “Repo Guy”. The Z series wheel lift was then introduced. The most sought after wheel lift in the industry.
Lift and Tow has a great reputation for being American built, long lasting, and the best service in the industry today. “If the phone rings more than three times, I’ll have someone’s head”, says Cal. We stand by our product and service that we sell. We have every part in stock to keep the tower up and running. We are also always exploring new designs and capabilities. Watch for our next new unit! We strive to develop new and improved designs so that we can remain atop the industry as the best unit on the market.
