Nick's Heavy-Duty Towing

Our History

Family owned and operated for 49 years

It seems like just yesterday that we began in the towing business. Over the past 49+ years we have gained the respect of thousands of satisfied customers. Our extensive fleet of heavy-duty tow trucks are able to provide numerous services, both emergency and scheduled. Our quality reputation for providing quick, friendly, efficient and cost effective solutions for our clients has allowed us to become the premier provider of services in our NJ/NY Metro market and beyond.

At Nick’s Towing Service we recognize that if your equipment is not working for you or is disabled, your revenue will be negatively impacted. We provide towing and recovery services for most commercial vehicles, including tractor trailers, straight trucks, fire and emergency vehicles, motor homes, cement pumps & mixers, dump trucks, buses, motor homes, armored trucks, etc. After serving the towing and recovery business since 1972 there is virtually nothing we haven’t encountered, both in equipment or situation.
