Who Are We?

Established all the way back in 1952, we’re L. L. Carter & Son, Inc. a heavy wrecker near Doswell, Virginia that has been devoted to providing exceptional and quick semi truck towing and other heavy towing services for over 66 years. We’re a family business, and that means that our name is attached to everything we do. Close to 70 years of continuous operation in the heavy towing business has taught us that if you don’t have a good name, you don’t have anything, so you can be confident that we’re working our hardest to provide the very best service to every client, every time, because our name means something to us, and it means something to our employees, some of whom have been working with us for more than 30 years. They take pride in saying that they work for us, and we here at L. L. Carter & Son take at least as much pride in them. We like to think that retaining such skilled and dedicated employees for so long means that we’re doing something right, and we vouch for the quality of each and every one of them.

What Do We Do?

We’re a heavy wrecker near Doswell, Virginia that specializes in heavy towing, semi truck towing, heavy load hauling, roadside assistance, and accident recovery. While our specialty is large vehicles and loads, no job is too small, and we’re just as capable of servicing or transferring a motorbike as we are a bus or tractor trailer. We understand that emergencies don’t stick to a 9-5 schedule, so we deliver prompt service 24/7, and you won’t be sitting on the road all night. As soon as you make your call, someone will be dispatched to help you, whether it’s 3 in the morning or 3 in the afternoon.

Why Are We the Best?

Four words: experience, employees, equipment, integrity.

No other heavy wrecker near Doswell, Virginia has half the experience that we do. We’ve been servicing vehicles since 1952. If it’s on the road, we’ve seen it. Chances are, no matter how odd the problem or uncommon the situation, someone here has dealt with it before and knows how to handle it.

In addition to everyday hauling and recovery, our dedicated, veteran employees maintain training in a number of specialized disciplines, including accident recovery, spill containment, and HAZMAT response. If it happens on the road, one of our employees is qualified and ready to handle it, whether it’s as simple as changing a tire, or as complex as a catastrophic accident involving a heavy transport hauling HAZMAT material.

We know that if you’re going to be the best at what you do, you need the best equipment, so we maintain a wide array of vehicles and specialized equipment, suitable for any job, and our fleet of over 60 trucks is kept in tip-top shape and ready for anything.

Whatever the situation, we will work with you, charge you a fair price for the service, and treat your problem as a priority. Our name is on the side of every truck, and that means something to us.
