About Us

Northern Alberta Tow Truck and Equipment Sales is owned and operated by Garry Ternowski and has been in operation for twenty five years. The business was started with customer service in mind and that is still the main goal after many years in business. We are very proud of our hard working and loyal staff and strive to provide the best service possible to our customers. We believe we have accomplished this and look forward to serving our customers for many years to come.

The company sells Vulcan and Chevron products – anywhere from the smallest (Vulcan 804) to the largest (Vulcan 975 Rotator). A large inventory of parts and accessories related to the towing industry are available in our parts department. We provide service and repairs for all towing equipment – not only the trucks but revolts, winches, and all other related towing equipment.

The business operates Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm although Garry is always available after hours and on weekends. If you are not able to come in during business hours the staff will be happy to make arrangements to meet with you at whatever time is convenient for you.
