A Tradition of Quality Service


Finger Lakes Wrecker Service officially began business in 1970 working out of a small office. Our 1-man, 1-truck operation has since grown significantly. Today, our team of trained and uniformed employees provides a wide variety of roadside services using 8 state-of-the-art trucks.

Our company is a local leader within the towing industry. We were the first in the area and fourth in the United States to have the wheel lift systems, which picks up vehicles by their tires for true damage-free towing. Our 1988 custom Kenworth┬« is featured in The World's Greatest Tow Truck book as the only one like it in the world.
