Whitecourt's Silver Rooster Towing Shares Fun Facts about Towing

Who Built the First Tow Truck?

Did you know that the first tow truck was built in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the year 1916? It was the brainchild of a mechanic named Ernest Holmes who was called by his former professor when he needed help pulling his vehicle to safety. The professor had an accident and his vehicle was stuck in a creek. Needless to say, it was a huge undertaking, and it took six men eight hours to get the vehicle out.


Going into the future, Ernest knew he needed to find a better solution for such situations. As a result, he constructed a crane system on the back of a car and added outriggers on the front for stability to create the first real tow truck. Soon after, he began selling his "Holmes Wreckers" to auto repair shops, thereby creating an entire industry!
