Townsville Towing Service

About Us

Shaun Edwards bought his first tow truck in 1990 while owning Edwards Panel & Paint and started Edwards Towing. Shaun operated the two businesses together until 2001 when he bought out Aitkenvale Towing. A short time after acquiring Aitkenvale Towing Shaun decided to close the panel shop and concentrate on tow trucks. From then on Shaun has traded as Aitkenvale Towing and has built it up from two trucks doing accidents and trade work and with the purchase of Townsville Towing in 2010, this has added to the impressive fleet he has today. Shaun has a very strong trade clientele and with the expansion he has now, he can tow everything from a scooter to a road train and just about any piece of machinery. Shaun doesn't know when the need for more equipment will stop and confirms he will keep updating his equipment to ensure that he can keep providing his services to his already loyal customer base. Shaun is always happy to have a chat to new clients about how he can fulfil their transport requirements. With Shaun's long history of experience he can tailor his services to suit the clients needs.

Jake Edwards followed in his father's footsteps and joined the team in 2011. Jake started out by helping with odd jobs around the depot such as cleaning trucks. Before long he progressed to tow truck assistant; helping with local accidents, right through to out of town recoveries. He soon worked his way up the skills ladder and obtained his relevant truck and towing licences. Now, Jake is a regular face of Aitkenvale Towing Service and works along side Shaun in the running of the business and is always available to assist the community with their towing and transport needs.
