Heavy-Duty Towing

The majority of towing services are only equipped to handle regular passenger vehicles. While they are great at towing sedans, and even larger pick-up trucks, they cannot handle larger vehicles. Unfortunately, larger vehicles will also experience breakdowns and other problems. Does that mean that drivers of tractor-trailers and buses are out of luck? Not at all! It just means they need to turn to a heavy-duty towing service, such as NK Towing.

A lot can go wrong when towing a larger vehicle. People can get hurt, the vehicle can be damaged, and lots of money can be lost. Because of this, we understand that there is no margin for error. We approach all of our towing jobs, including heavy-duty towing jobs, with an eye for precision and great care. Among the vehicles we can transport are:

  •         Buses
  •         Box Trucks
  •         Motor Homes and RVs
  •         Limousines
  •         Semi-Trucks
  •         Tractor-Trailers

NK Towing’s Commitment to the City of Escondido

Escondido is San Diego County’s oldest city.  Since its inception, Escondido has grown at a rapid rate with new communities emerging, like Hidden Trails, for example, and unincorporated communities like Jesmond Dene and Hidden Meadows.  Unless you are utilizing the bicycle path that runs along the Escondido Creek, you are probably traversing the city by vehicle.  More cars on the road means a higher demand for roadside assistance, so travelers are not stranded without help.  Since 2008, Escondido has seen an overall drop in crime, in part due to our committed and quick-responding staff at NK Towing & Roadside Services.  We are here to help the citizens of Escondido keep their vehicles running and out of harm’s way.    

Escondido’s culture revolves around automobiles.  In fact, one of Escondido’s most popular events is a car show called “Cruisin’ Grand,” where citizens can browse hot rods and historic cars.  Every Friday night from April through September, citizens gather for live music and car viewing.  If you need your classic car towed to the event, NK Towing is proud to serve you with 100% damage-free tow service.

NK Towing & Roadside Services puts Escondido’s auto care first.  Our office and lot are located within the city, so access is convenient and quick.  With the amount of time citizens spend on the road, NK Towing promises to assist every driver with the highest level of service that is dependable and affordable.
