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.

My driver 2 nights ago - outstanding gentleman- Volvo C70 transmission goes out - I was gonna have it towed to Los Olivos - he suggested Swede Automotive for the following morning- outstanding decision - he was completely professional - held the vehicle in town until I confirmed services could be performed by Swede- called the next morning to confirm- appt scheduled he towed and it was a great decision. Excellent recommendation and follow through - can't ask more than that - 👍

Yuck, who likes to get towed for anything... Well it happened, and I had the pleasure of getting greeted by Dave. Dave was professional and smiling, and put my anxiety aside. I feel like he enjoyed the customers and improved my tow experience. Top Tier customer service and a delight... Smittys had a wonderful, clean flatbed come and was timely. This is definitely when most customers would say is not out best moment... But thank you, Dave coming in happy and friendly to haul my EV baby away... PS. I lucked up and got this company via AAA.
