Reliable Emergency 24/7 Towing Service in the Kootenays

At Scrap King Auto Wrecking & Towing, we have an emergency 24/7 towing service in the Kootenays. Based out of Salmo and Creston, we have a wider reach and our reaction time is quick. No matter where you’re stranded in the Kootenays, we’ll help you out. Our service area is vast. We have a large fleet of towing trucks to ensure your stressful time is cut short. We own 3 tandem tow trucks, which is more than most of the other towing companies in the region own.

Cone Zone logo

Drivers are required to slow down and move over when approaching vehicles with flashing amber, red or blue lights such as first responders, tow trucks, maintenance workers, utility workers, garbage collectors and landscapers.

When in a speed zone of 80km/h or over, drivers must slow down to 70km/h, and when in a speed zone of 80km/h or under, slow to 40km/h. In both cases, drivers should be prepared to move over and increase the space between their vehicle and the work zone, if it’s safe to do so. Failing to follow these rules can result in a $173 ticket and three penalty points.

Cone zones help protect roadside workers, so slow down and drive with care. Our lives depend on it.
