With major cities like Chicago and wilderness like Shawnee National Forest, Illinois has lots to offer travelers looking for a family vacation. However, breaking down on one of the state’s highways can be challenging, as frequent traffic jams delay roadside assistance. To get faster access to a tow truck from Chicago to Champaign, download HONK on your iOS or Android device.


HONK is a free app that connects drivers with reliable, affordable Illinois towing services anytime, day or night. HONK requires no membership and charges no up-front fees, making it the perfect “just in case” app to have on your phone or tablet. Since you can initiate a help ticket from your phone, without going through a central dispatch service, you will have help on hand faster than with comparable alternatives like traditional auto clubs. In some areas of the U.S., help will arrive 50 percent faster than it would using membership based motor clubs.

To get help, open the app or click the button above and describe your present location and your need, such as “Need Illinois tow truck on I-57.” HONK then routes this information to Illinois towing affiliates that are nearby and able to meet your specific need. This helps us keep your overall service costs down, and provides you the security of knowing you won’t be paying for a pricey tow for a minor service like a jump start.

Whenever you use HONK, we’ll show you a “guaranteed not to exceed” quote so you know what you may be liable to pay. You have our assurance that prices are guaranteed and fair, and you’ll never have to haggle with a towing service provider over the cost of Illinois roadside assistance.
