Efficient, Damage-free Service

For over 70 years, Gerlock Towing & Heavy Haul has represented the best the greater Portland commercial towing and recovery industry has to offer. We set out to fill a niche we knew the area needed: a heavy-duty towing company that operates with a sense of professionalism, urgency and respect for its clients’ vehicles. We’re “car people” before anything else, which means we will afford your vehicle the same care we would give our own.

Since we’ve been amassing and updating our vast fleet of trucks and equipment for the better part of a century, our clients can rest assured we have the goods necessary to get them out of whatever predicament they may be in. Putting this together with our staff’s years of experience working on cars, it’s easy to see why we’ve stayed ahead in this business for so long—we’re simply the best there is.

I'm a professional driver, and my vehicle got stuck in a very dangerous spot during rush hour traffic. Zoe, The Heavy Haul driver, got me out of there and did so in very calm and professional manner.
