Knowledge gleaned from decades spent on the open road answering every call imaginable and handed down from generation to generation, that's what Mario's Towing offers.
Our family business was founded more than 30 years ago by Mario, a single-truck operator who would worry his wife, Darlene, whenever his tows would take him out of radio range - which they often did. Consider that towers also head out during extreme conditions - when blazing temperatures cause engines to overheat and blizzards buffet vehicles into the ditch - and there was cause for concern.
But Darlene would always hear back eventually and, with each call, Mario's knowledge grew. As did our business, springing up from that lone truck to now boasting the heaviest fleet in British Columbia while servicing approximately 1,000 kilometres of roadway. Based in Kelowna, we are proud of our significant presence in the Interior as we contribute to our customers' success via our diversified services.
Our more than 50 operators enjoy the variety of the calls they answer as well as the potential to regularly help people. Some of our guys have been with the company more than 20 years! But it all started with Mario.
"We still go back to my Dad for a tonne of advice because when we ask him a question, he's done it 50 times,' says Mario's son Nic, who runs the operation now as general manager. 'He's there every day."
