Troys Wrecker Service

Troy's Wrecker Service was established in 1989 in a two car garage in Shepherdsville, KY with one employee (Troy) and a 1972 Chevy Wrecker. From there Troy contracted with AAA where he towed for them from 1991 to 1997. In late 1997 he concentrated on towing for the general public, automotive shops, collision centers and Insurance companies. With a lot of hard work, perseverance and the attitude of "NEVER GIVE UP" Troy has service commitments from over 300 clients. Troy's has 13 employees, 9 state of the art trucks, 6 flatbeds, and 3 medium duty wreckers.
Troy's facility today is on a 7 acre tract with a fully secured storage lot and 2,400 sq ft. office space. With our 24 hour dispatch our staff is uniformed and well trained. We take pride in being courteous and respectful to our customers. If you are looking for a shorter ETA (estimated time arrival) call us now for prompt and professional service.

"We Pick You Up When You're Down"




Commonly Asked Questions

Q: When I phone in for a tow, how long will it take?
A: Based on several conditions, we try and reach our customers within a 15-40 minute window. During peak times such as rush hour, those times may be on the longer side while non peak times typically are closer to 20-25 minutes.

Q: I drive a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Can any towing vehicle service me?
A: Your owners manual typically located in the glove box will outline the correct towing procedure. Most manufactures who produce 4 wheel drive vehicles recommend that they be towed with all 4 wheels off of the ground. This requires a flatbed towing vehicle. Our service fleet contains several towing vehicles of this type allowing us to service all sizes of 4 wheel drive vehicles.

Q: I need to move a fifth wheel travel trailer. Can you do this?
A: Our service fleet is equipped with the necessary safety equipment to handle most towing circumstances. In your case, we do have trucks capable of handling this exact requirement.

Q: Do you bill my towing insurance directly?
A: In some cases we are able to bill your insurance company directly. There are many however that do not allow for this. Within your insurance policy you will find the procedure outlined. Most companies require that towing benefits must be submitted and processed by the named insured. Check with your insurance agent for details.

Q: I have been told that my vehicle has been impounded. How do I get it back?
A: Releasing an impounded vehicle requires that you visit our office with a state issued drivers license that matched the vehicle registration. Additionally you will need to pay any towing/storage fees attached to your vehicle at the time of pickup.

Q: Can I pick a vehicle up for someone who is unable to show up in person?
A: We require proof of ownership which we can validate. This may include a notarized written document allowing us to release the vehicle into someone's care other than the owner.

Q: Can I have a vehicle towed that doesn't belong to me away from my business?
A: There are laws that require certain conditions apply before towing a vehicle which doesn't belong to you. If the vehicle in question is blocking your normal operations and your property is properly posted; then you may have the vehicle towed at the owner's expense. Please note that there are many circumstances that may prohibit you from acting. Please phone our office for additional information.

Q: There is a vehicle parked at my property can I have it removed?
A: In most situations a sign is not required on private residential property and you may have the vehicle towed.
