About A-1 Towing and Trucking


We are a family owned and operated local business. We have served the Winnemucca and Northern Nevada area since 1960. Prior to that, we operated in Blanding, Utah. Our company was founded in the early 1950s by Clarence and Myrtle Tregellas. Clarence is pictured below leaning on the hood in the picture below. The other picture shows Clarence's first wrecker.

Jim bought the business from his parents in 1978 and expanded the business from one shop and two tow trucks to the current fleet of 25+ trucks and two locations. 

No matter what your predicament, we have the expertise and equipment needed to recover or move your vehicle or heavy equipment safely, quickly, and inexpensively, without the cost of calling in an out-of-town operator.

In recent years, we have expanded into trucking and equipment hauling services for local mines and other industrial operations. We also offer custom metal fabrication, truck body work and painting, and truck repair services.
