The safety and well being of HONK Partners and HONK customers is and always will be our biggest priority. While normal business operations have currently been affected, there will be a time when things return to normal. During this time, we will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to update this page with relevant news and tips.

Women in towing. It’s a topic that doesn’t get enough attention. Whether they are managing the office, dispatching trucks or are out in the field working, women are an important part of the towing and roadside industry. In honor of International Women’s Day, March 8th, we wanted to shine the spotlight on one of our women Service Provider Partners. We spoke with Margarita Sanchez of All American Alliance based out of Los Angeles, CA. Margarita tells us about her transition from the medical field to the towing world, what challenges she has faced and what inspires her to keep going.

Tow truck professionals join HONK to innovate faster and move their businesses into the digital age

The global towing and roadside assistance industry is expected to reach $29 billion by 2026*. With strong growth anticipated in this market, tow professionals are facing numerous economic and business challenges that have and will continue to affect their level of profitability. This includes finding partners that empower a more efficient workflow to keep operational costs down and set their businesses up for the exponential growth driven by the increased demand for digital roadside solutions.

No one wakes up in the morning hoping that their car will break down that day. Luckily, there are thousands of towing and roadside companies available through the HONK Partner Network who are there to help get you back on the road quickly.

HONK prides itself on working with some of the best towing and roadside companies across the entire country. It’s because of our Partners that customers continously give HONK higher customer satisfaction scores than most motor clubs or roadside services. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!

With a fleet of 19 trucks, 7 operators, 2 dispatchers and a 2-year-old who prefers a Peterbilt to a Freightliner, Alex Shopen of A.S.A.P Towing & Recovery has his hands full. And that’s how he likes it. Alex, a tow industry veteran of 10+ years began his towing journey in San Diego, CA. Initially, his love of everything automobile led him to the towing industry. “I bought and resold cars. Most of the time they weren’t running and every time I had to pay for a tow, it would be $100 here, $100 there. So I bought my own tow truck.”

For many drivers, a breakdown can ruin an entire day pretty quickly. Without warning or notification, finding oneself disabled on the side of the highway can be pretty scary and rightly so. Between speeding vehicles and distracted motorists, the side of a highway can turn even a minor roadside mishap into a deadly incident. No one faces this reality more than you, our Partners.

Light shows. Demonstrations. Truck beauty Contests. Parties. Free Swag. All the makings of a good ol’ fashioned tow show. In case you haven’t heard, tow show season is around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited.

Every year thousands of towing companies convene at designated locations to meet with industry manufacturers, insurance companies, take courses to increase certifications and find out what’s new in the towing business. Did I mention the best part? We get to meet you, our valued HONK Partners.

A roadside breakdown and being stranded on the side of the highway is every driver’s nightmare, but when it does happen tow truck professionals bravely come to their rescue. Unfortunately, a tow truck professional’s job can quickly turn deadly when drivers don’t follow safety laws or drive while distracted. HONK Technologies, an on-demand mobility and roadside assistance platform is doing its part to help raise awareness of nationwide ‘Move Over’ laws in an effort to further protect the safety of tow truck professionals and other emergency first responders. 

The Roadside Assistance Industry is expected to be a $29 Billion industry by 2026. As a key player in this industry, our mission at HONK is to relentlessly deliver game-changing platform technology transforming how people, brands and service providers connect in this new, on-demand world.

Our vision of roadside assistance for the 21st century is not just a fix for a broken-down car, it’s a complete technology solution that provides the fastest and most reliable way to restore mobility for those who have lost it; turning car breakdowns into nothing more than a small bump in the road for customers.

As a growing company we are always looking for ways to improve. Which is why we are constantly asking our Partners what we can do and how we can get better. Every month we will be asking you a question that we think will help us out in the future. We look forward to reading your answers!
