Mission Statement

Specialty Towing Bay Area

Specialty Towing has one goal: to provide our customers with the most professional, courteous, safe and reliable towing services, no matter what! We strive to make each one of our clients happy and go out of our way to ensure that happens. No matter what your car problem is, Specialty Towing will always be there for you.

Owner of Specialty Towing



Specialty Towing started off under a different name in 1980. Rosas Towing was our original name and was started in a garage on 6th Avenue in Menlo Park, CA. Rosas Towing was a leader in local towing for many years and was soon bought by Isabel Trujillo of Specialty Towing, Inc. Since then, Isabel has done her best to turn Specialty Towing into a world class towing company, offering top of the line towing Services to both institutional and individual clients throughout the Bay Area. 

As of 2020, Specialty Towing has grown into a larger towing company in the Palo Alto, California area. Specialty towing now has more options for towing a vehicle. Their fleet now includes heavy duty trucks like rotator trucks and landoll and lowboy flatbeds.

Towing Safety and Towing Training

Driver Training

Our drivers are all WreckMaster Certified, meaning that each of them is put through a grueling training process that requires them to be tested by third-party towing experts to ensure they are ready to handle all of our clients requests. WreckMaster is recognized by all local Police Departments including the California Highway Patrol. 

It is Specialty Towing’s thinking that due to the dangers of operating heavy machinery, it is imperative to have each of our drivers certified as proof of their Towing Expertise.

Tow Truck Fleet Maintenance

Due to Specialty Towing’s reputation and clients, we are required to have each of our tow trucks serviced often. Each tool is where it needs to be inside the truck, leaving no emergency too tough to handle.
