Philadelphia Towing Company
The city of Philadelphia is a bit unique as it is a rather large city that experiences lake effect snow. With this comes some unique challenges for tow truck drivers such as keeping the snow emergency routes clear of vehicles while there is a snow emergency in effect. The residents of Philadelphia should make themselves aware of how and when they can park on the streets of Philadelphia. As, if they are parked when and where it is not permitted the streets will be cleared by the city. This means that your car will be towed. It is also possible to get towed if you are parked illegally or don’t put enough on your meter.
If you go back to where your car was and it is not there, it is entirely possible that the city has had to towed away. The city officials ask that you do not call 911 for such things but call 1-888-591-3636. They will have the information on where your car is at and can answer any of your questions.
Our skilled and trained staff are here and ready to get out there and clear the streets either from illegally parked vehicles to accidents, stuck vehicles and even help change a tire.

We offer a variety of towing services to choose from as well.
