About Smitty’s Towing
Smitty’s Towing opened its doors for business in 1992, realizing there was a need in the Goleta-Santa Barbara area for a dependable towing company that would assist in the trucking and hard to handle equipment. The company originated as mainly a heavy duty towing and recovery facility. By 1993, we started branching out into the quickly growing field of light duty towing.
In 2011, we added a location serving Buellton, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, and Solvang with full services in light, medium, and heavy duty towing including a full inside storage yard. Since our start we have been delivering the foremost towing and recovery service on the California Central Coast. We provide a variety of services; including towing, transport, emergency recovery, mobile repairs and truck repair services. We handle the emergency transport of loads across the nation.
At Smitty’s Towing, we live by the theory that no job is too big or too small for us to tackle. Over the past 30 years, we have worked with multiple Law Enforcement Agencies, Corporations, Dealerships, Motor Clubs and the general motoring public. Smitty’s Towing is fully bonded, insured, and can proudly provide countless references upon request. We’re determined to provide the best service possible with clean trucks and well-trained drivers.
Our team is firmly committed to earning your business. We pride ourselves in having one of the largest fleets of towing and recovery equipment in the Central California area, quick response times, professional courteous staff members and reasonable pricing. Try us once and we believe you will be a customer for life.

Had a 30 foot Moving van plunged of road into the mud and 3 tow companies there to try to retrieve the unit to no avail. Called Smittys and they had the truck out in a short time. Very nice equipment!! Next time they will be my first call… Thanks guys (and gals)
Mike from Smitty's arrived very quickly and saved the day. I locked rental keys (and my house key, elderly and infirm parents' groceries and medications, etc...) in the trunk ... The rental agency's solution was to tow the vehicle to LAX, have me uber to get a replacement rental and then get to LAX to retrieve my possessions. Totally unacceptable. Whatsmore, I was parked in handicap spot with fractured ankle and would not have my placard. Mike got the car opened but there still was not trunk access to get the keys. He referred me to a locksmith and the problem was solved in ½ hour. He even phoned back to make sure I wasn't still stuck! My parents got their groceries and medications on time. No LAX! Thank you Mike!
Mike went above and beyond the call of duty! We had a very stressful situation and he took the time to figure out the best way to get our truck unstuck with the least amount of damage to it. He had such a great spirit and attitude and showed a lot of skill and ingenuity. I felt so blessed (and surprised) when he cared enough to call me to check on us- especially because we had run into more trouble and he came back and rescued us again! Ours was not the easiest job but Mike worked tirelessly and saw things through until our truck was safely home. This kind of compassion and work ethic deserves more than five stars!!
Lance with Smittys towing was the best!! Five star service!
