Our Guiding Principles

In 2008, we celebrated our company’s 50th Anniversary. Harold “Speed” Coe started Speed’s Towing in a Flying A service station at Broadway and West Burnside. Burnside was Auto Row for Portland then, and Speed’s served many new car dealers, and the retail public. At the high point in 1996, Speed’s operated 151 trucks out of 14 locations, covering greater Portland, Vancouver, Seattle, and Salem. However, “big” does not always relate to success. Since 1996, we reduced low dollar auto club work to only 6 percent of our volume, and have eliminated all salvage tows (insurance totals to salvage auctions).
The smaller, focused team now operates from our Beaverton, Parkrose, and Clackamas lots, and from our main office in the Central Eastside Industrial District, with state-of-the-art light duty and medium duty tow trucks and car carriers.
We are forever grateful to our long time loyal customers and certainly appreciate every customer.
Thank you for all your continued support over the years, and for being one of our valued customers.
Our 2 covered car carriers can haul one vehicle on the bed, and tow one vehicle behind. They are equipped with air dump suspension, in order to lower the load angle for lowered cars and for those with a long overhang past the tires. We use the very latest 8 point tie down system, touching only the tires of the towed vehicle. In addition we use our enclosed car carriers for specialty cars, collector cars and bare metal project cars.
