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.

Was stranded while camping out of cell phone range and our ride was late because of it. Once picked up, however, we (wife and dog) were treated with empathy and kindness. Our driver, Neil, was capable and confident as well. We had laughter and great conversation en route to a transmission shop. Neil even insisted on handling our luggage once we were ready to roll and once we arrived. Total gentleman. Neil knew the location and area of our destination and even had thoughtful recommendations about it. Though repairs were extensive- and we were stranded without our camper van for over a week- we remember the professionalism, service and courtesy from Neil and Smitty's Towing.
