Diesel Truck Towing Company
Truck Towing Company Serving Utah’s Wasatch Front
We all take care to drive safely on the majestic expanses of roads in our great state. Unfortunately, even the most apparently indestructible trucks can get caught in mud, sand, and snow out on our roadways. Rest assured that we get calls for truck towing in the Salt Lake County region every day of the year.
When you’re in need of a tow—whether it’s a scheduled move or an unplanned emergency—Roadside Rescue is here. Our expansive service area includes truck towing in Salt Lake County, Davis County, Weber County, Utah County, Tooele County, and more. Our towing experts have access to the latest and greatest equipment available, ensuring that we get your truck safely back in commission as soon as possible. Our affordable towing services and top-rate customer service ensure that our first-time customers become repeat customers and, in fact, friends. We’re proud of our reputation in the Salt Lake suburbs and beyond.
What You Need to Know When You Need a Tow
If you find yourself out on the road and in need of an emergency truck tow, don’t panic. Calm yourself by taking a minute or two to breathe and focus on the task at hand. Your first job is to get your truck onto the shoulder or to another safe place as far away from traffic as possible.
If everyone in your vehicle is safe, call Roadside Rescue immediately. We’re available 24/7. Our dispatchers are trained to stay calm and talk you through a potentially dangerous situation. If you’re out on the roads, try to pinpoint your location by using GPS if it’s available. Otherwise, landmarks and road signs will be helpful. We’ll want to know what conditions you’re in—snow, sand, offroad, mud, etc.—along with the make and model of truck you’re driving. Are you upright, or have you flipped over? Will our tow truck have plenty of space to access your truck, or are you in a tight space?
As long as the conditions around you are safe, it’s a good idea to stay with your abandoned truck. (According to Utah law, abandoned vehicles on the highway can be removed after four hours of being abandoned.) Once we get your call, we’ll do our best to get to you as quickly as possible so you won’t have to wait long.
Our Truck Towing Fleet Can Handle Any Truck
When you have a situation—emergency or otherwise—rest assured that Roadside Rescue can haul a full range of trucks. You’re likely to find that our competition can’t touch us when it comes to towing capacity and power.
Our trucks have a 102” wide bed, the widest towing bed option available. This can facilitate big, lifted, jacked-up trucks with wide tires. It can also handle dually trucks with their six wheels without a problem. Our trucks can tow the equivalent of an F-250 and F-350, giving us the power to tow at least 20,000 pounds and a 5th wheel capacity of 35,750 pounds.
A lot of towing companies do not do trailer towing or have the wider beds to haul them, but we can handle trailers. We also have a wrecker truck that can tow box trucks, motor homes, and equipment equivalent to that size ( medium duty). Ask about our semi-truck towing options as well.
When you need a tow truck company in the north Salt Lake City area, Roadside Rescue is your most comprehensive offering.

Preventing Truck Disasters
We all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? While we pride ourselves on keeping our truck towing costs affordable, your most economic plan is to keep your truck maintained from the get-go. That doesn’t mean you won’t need roadside assistance, but it does mean that you’ll need it less often.
When you get your truck in for an annual maintenance check, your mechanic will be able to catch most major issues. You should also get your car into the mechanic before any long-haul trips to prevent the need for emergency service out on the road.
Checking up on the following items once or twice a year along with good defensive driving skills and common sense will keep you in good stead and prevent almost all dangerous situations out on the road.
- Maintain fluid levels—Regularly checking oil levels along with your truck’s other fluids seems like an obvious way to keep your truck in good working order, and yet it is a common oversight. When fluid levels get too low, your car can easily overheat or stall out, leaving you stranded and wondering what went wrong. Don’t let this easy task cost you hours on the side of the road, or worse, leave you vulnerable to a dangerous accident that could have been prevented.
- Don’t ignore warning lights—Dashboard lights are your friend. You should be able to find the legend for their meanings in your car’s manual. Take action as soon as a warning light comes on—your future self will thank you.
- Get gas early—Utah’s long stretches of highway can leave you without access to a gas station for longer than you might expect. Especially when traveling long distances, keep at least a quarter tank of gas at all times, and don’t be tempted to save a little extra time by waiting for the next gas station…or you could be waiting a lot longer for a tow.
- Don’t let your truck sit out in the cold—If at all possible, keep your truck in a garage during the winter months. Vehicles that sit outside for extended periods without being driven can wind up with damage to their engine, batteries, or other parts.
- Be aware of your tires—Get in the habit of doing a quick check of your tires while you’re getting gas. Keeping a background awareness of air pressure levels, tread depth, and any debris you might have picked up on the road that can lead to punctures can prevent blowouts that require an emergency call to us!
It is wise to keep an emergency kit in your truck in case the worst happens. Store energy bars and other non-perishables, water, jumper cables, a phone charger, and a first aid kit for a variety of potential emergency situations. Keep our number in your phone under “Tow Company” so you don’t have to frantically rely on internet access if you get stuck.
When Trucks Get into Trouble
Utah’s weather and landscape are ripe for opportunities for you to get stuck with your truck. Whether you’re exploring offroad in the heat of the summer or out and about in our snowy, slippery winter conditions, you can never fully eliminate the possibility of needing a truck tow on Utah’s roads.: 801-803-4900.
Call us first in any of the following situations:
- Stuck in the sand—All Utahns agree that our state has some of the most beautiful vistas in the world. Especially when you have a truck, it can be more than tempting to leave the paved roads behind to blaze your own path. Unfortunately, this can occasionally lead to your getting stuck in the sand, and spinning your wheels and getting nowhere fast.
- Slipping on ice—Ice is a fact of life in our frigid winters. No one likes to have to alter their schedule at the last minute, but common sense will tell you when it’s better to stay off the road rather than risk a crash due to slick surfaces.
- Getting stuck in snow—With an average of over 50 inches of snowfall annually across our region, we get many calls for truck towing once winter kicks into gear. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security just because you have a powerful truck. Stay at home or wait a few extra hours if you know your truck might not be able to handle the volume.
- Blowing a tire—It happens, but it will happen far less often if you get in the habit of regular observation of your tires for wear and tear. Tires generally need to be replaced after 60,000 to 80,000 miles; refer to the manufacturer’s guidance and make a note in an accessible place so you know when it’s time for replacements.
- Getting in trouble while hauling—If you get stuck in the mud while trying to haul your fifth wheel, or your trailer winds up stuck in the snow, you’re not alone. Towing requires specialty know-how that is often overlooked. To prevent incidents that can not only get you stuck but cause damage to your expensive property, rely on Roadside Rescue to tow your heavy cargo for you.
