I was in a doozy of a situation and he took it slow and easy and got me out with any damage I would recommend them to anybody!

Yates was amazing. I called them to bring my daughter home when the car died. I was home sick and even gave them the wrong phone number. But they found her and brought her and my car home safely. I am so grateful that I called them. They are the only one I will call from now on.

This company and their employee, Logan, did an excellent, stellar job! Responded in 20 minutes, accessed the car quickly and efficiently without damaging it and got my family going again who had little children. Very polite, courteous and professional. Will use Yakes as our go-to service in the event of and HIGHLY recommend!

[The driver] was so polite and courteous and he paid extra attention to make sure he didn't cause damage to the car. Great and speedy service! Will definitely use this company again.

The great folks at Yakes Towing came to my rescue in the middle of a brutal blizzard on Christmas eve... Thank You for being a special Blessing to me!
