Welcome to Van Lingen!





Full-Service, State-of-the-Art Towing and Recovery

As a third generation family-owned and operated business, Van Lingen is southern California’s most trusted name in towing and recovery. At Van Lingen, we set out long ago to be the leader in swift, efficient, one-call-and-done towing service for businesses and municipalities alike. Today, thanks to our three convenient locations, computerized dispatching system, sophisticated equipment and experienced staff, we have earned and kept our leadership status and continue to deliver unmatched commitment to the community.

Fast Response Times

Van Lingen tow trucks typically are at the scene in only 8.1 minutes, far better than the 15-20 minute industry standard. It is important to us that every traffic incident be addressed rapidly. While we’re proud that our fast response policy minimizes productivity losses, we know too that we’re reducing the chance of secondary accidents. Our job at Van Lingen goes far beyond towing; we take control of the situation so that police, fire, and emergency responders can get back to work faster, and traffic can return to normal. But response is only half the equation…

One Call and Done

Clearing an accident scene in a timely manner requires the right people and the right equipment. With comprehensive state-of-the-art equipment and service, we regularly implement the tools which exceed the needs of our customers and their communities. For example, in many accidents, diesel fuel or other fluids leak onto the road or highway. Safe and thorough cleanup can mean waiting for an outside agency to arrive, requiring roadways to remain closed and emergency personnel to stay on the scene. Van Lingen considered these shortcomings independently, and provided a solution: We purchased our own, state-of-the-art Haz-Mat command trailer and developed our own Incident Management Response Team. This “one call and done” approach means that we are often the first, and last, responder.

Together, We Make a Difference

Our unmatched commitment to the needs of emergency responders and law enforcement is what sets us apart from the competition. We believe that Van Lingen Towing is worthy of your consideration and we thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
