Cheap Towing is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars, based on 62 reviews!
The fee was solid and only issue was being late (30 minutes). We had to call to find out what was going on hence the 4 star, but otherwise they provided good service.
Young is great!! Affordable rates and he knows how to tow. Hooked up my car and got it out of my tight awkward driveway. Will definitely use his services again.
My car stopped running mid drive. Called Cheap Towing and he said he'd be there in about 20-30 minutes. He got there in a little under 30. After turning my car on he said it sounded like it was done for because the engine sounded really bad. I told him I was originally going to have him take me to Palolo Auto Service but if it's that bad I wasn't going to keep the (old) car much longer so we could just take it to my house so I could properly get rid of it. He offered to stop by Palolo Auto Service to see what they think and then took me home after. Great service! Came in the timeframe that he said he would and went the extra mile to help me. Saving this tow company in my contacts.
Best tow service on the island. Young, is great. Very helpful, reliable and quick. Called/used them twice and both times, no problems. Very affordable in a crunch.
A+++++++(MAHALO)!!!!! excellent experience with this company!highly recommended!!! will spread the word!!!
I don't know how any other towing company stays in business with Cheap Towing around. They are GREAT! They responded quickly to my inquiry and gave me an amazing deal (and did so with kindness!).
I'm so grateful for your help, Dung! Thank you!
Reliable. The driver showed up and went above and beyond to complete the job. One note, if you want the vehicle towed on base, make sure to get the driver a pass before attempting to enter. The dispatcher stated his driver was cleared to drive on base but that was not the case. Other than a thirty minute detour to the registration office on base all went well
Have used cheap towing multiple times now. Easily some of the best experiences I've had with towing cars. Good prices, they take care of your car, and work hard to get the job done. They are my go-to as far as towing goes. Had a car towed to the docks yesterday. And not a single problem, went so much smoother than I expected! Was my first time shipping something too! A+++++ company for towing.
Transport Oahu Towing quoted more than 2X's the amount of other places for the same service. I would call Cheap Towing "cheap"! They did an excellent and were very kind & prompt and charged a reasonable fee. I would highly recommend them.
Young was so awesome. I had to get my car towed and it was one of those days when it was one thing after the other. I was so stressed, but he was able to come on time and he was so kind. He totally cheered up my day, and made me feel not so stressed about everything after all. His prices are more than fair, and he really put in the extra effort to tow my car cause it was a pain in the butt. I would recommend to everyone and I plan on keeping his number in my phone to call for any emergencies in the future. He is the best!!
Awesome tow truck company! He's the only one that answered out of all the 3 companies I called. He came right away and was so awesome! Thanks again for the save!!
Jason responding to my email right away with a very reasonable quote. They arrived within 15 minutes of my request and towed my 62 third hone without any problems
My car didn't start this morning before work. I was going to be late for work. I also, need to take the car to the shop at the same time. Cheap Towing told me I can just head to work, while they will take my car to the shop. After work I pick up my car. Thank you Cheap Towing for helping me to get my car back on the road again.
I call them during rush hour at 3pm. My car won't start because the starter was out! They quote me a very reasonable price and told me they will be there within 30 min. Hand down this the fastest and most affordable towing company out there. Thanks Cheap Towing for the excellent service!
At first call, Yung sounded pretty busy and had to give me a call back. He seemed a little rushed but when he finally called back (about 15 minutes later), he seemed considerably more relaxed. Unfortunately, I can't rate him on his actual service because his tow truck won't fit in our parking structure but he was very gracious and apologized for not hearing me better earlier on the phone. He seemed sincere in his apology. Seemed like he wanted to help. Wish I could've gone through his service because the idea of affordable towing seemed like a serious catch.
Car broke down on a Friday afternoon and Yung came in a fairly reasonable time&. showed up at my precise location. The dealership that I needed to be towed to was almost closed but Yung recommended that we should still go because he knew some guys on that shop. We showed up 30 minutes after closing and he got them to take my car in. Yung even dropped me off at my house. Fast forward two weeks and I needed a tow again. Called Yung and he gave me his ETA and showed up as promised. The price for both tows was considerably less than quotes I received for one tow. Save these guys on your speed dial.
My father-in-law's Infinity wouldn't start after getting a fuel pump replaced at the Infiniti dealership in Mapunapuna. The fact they forgot to bolt down the engine (!) is another review altogether...we needed to get the car towed from Kaimuki and Cheap Towing responded back on Yelp quickly. Jason was here within the half hour and where the car was parked was no easy task. It was on a steep slope at an angle. Jason backed it up and got the car out with some absolutely bad ass driving. He literally had an inch, maybe two on each side between the house and a pole. Mad driving skills. $95 as promised and the car was on it's way. Timely, reasonable, friendly, and skilled gets Cheap Towing five stars!
I messaged a handfull of Towing companies. I needed to go to Costco Iwilei from lower Manoa. One replied and quoted me $125.00. Then Youn called from SAIGON-CHEAP TOWING. $65.00!! And he came in 5 minutes!! He was close by. YAY!! I also needed to change a tire in addition to the tow and it was raining. I gave $20 more dollars. So I got a great deal and Youn was a nice guy too. Next time, I will call them direct.
Great service, fast, and reliable. My car broke down and my mechanic couldn't take the car until later in the week so I got my car towed to where I live. That tow was covered by insurance, but a second tow was not. I needed something affordable and looked around yelp. I was surprised to see that I did not even need to call multiple places, you can request a quote from several companies that will message you back. This place got back to me quickly ( I did end up calling to give them specifics on my car), and they had the best deal (40 dollars under everyone else!!!). Now, with the cheapest price I was surprised to also get the best service. On time arrival and the guy even took a look at our car to see what he thought the issue may be. He let us know he would talk to our mechanic. He truly cares about service and was a pleasure to speak with! He even correctly towed our car when the prior tow (paid for by insurance which I know was more expensive) did not for the type of car I have. This place is extremely fair, takes care of customers, and will be used in the future if needed. I highly recommend!
Excellent service. Showed up when they said they would. No extra charge for a Sunday. Great price! Would use them again and would highly recommend them.
Get service, showed up when they said they would and great price.
Would use them again and recommend to friends
They came about 30 mins late but as soon as they got there Jason had the car hooked up in less then 5 minutes and we were on our way. I paid $90 to get a tow from Pearl Ridge to Honda Winward Auto Body Shop. This is Hands down the most affordable tow I've ever had.
My car needed to get hooked up from the front and Jason helped me push my car back (up hill) to make that happen. I now have their number saved in my phone and will use them again.
It took a while to get in contact with this towing company since the line was always busy. When I finally got an answer, the owner told me to text him my address, and a tow truck would show up in 30 minutes. I texted him my address, and kind of expected a reply. After waiting 15 minutes, I got kind of nervous so I called again and he confirmed the tow truck was on it's way. Sure enough, it showed up 30 minutes after the initial call.
The guy driving the tow truck was very friendly and helpful. The tow went by quickly and without problems. He charged me $60, and I tipped him $10 for a total of $70.
I would give them a 4.5 if I could since I didn't really receive a confirmation on my text, but I would hate to give them a 4 just because of that so I rounded it up to a 5.
More than half the price as everyone else I've called and very quick. Awesome service!! Paid $95 when other towing companies wanted me pay $235
Great service, great price! You can't go wrong! By far the cheapest out of the others! Highly recommend these guys!
I see that there are some mixed reviews on here, so I just wanted to share my experience since it was excellent.
The owner Young answered my call quickly, gave me a straightforward estimate which was way cheaper than others I had just gotten, arrived when he said he would, and performed the tow efficiently. The price was right so I used him again the next day and the service was even better. Young dropped my girlfriend off at her work on the way to the mechanic, and also waited for me at the mechanic for 15 minutes then offered me a ride back to my work.
At the end of the day I try to do business with people I trust. Young is a solid dude who you can trust. I will always use him moving forward and would highly recommend you give him a shot if you need a tow.
I needed a tow on MLK day during rush hour and these guys came out and got me to where I needed to go pretty quickly and at least half the price that the two other towing companies wanted to charge me. The guy I talked to wasn't the friendliest, but I will take fast and cheap over general chattiness on the phone. When he showed up the gruffness went away quickly. He honored a discount via checking in on Yelp and took a credit card no problem. I would call him again in a heartbeat though I hope I don't have to again anytime soon.
This guy was great, fast, polite, knew what he was doing, and took better care over the transportation of my van then I do!! By far! Mahalo

My car died out at Walgreens, so naturally I needed a tow. My gf and I yelped this company and were super impressed! His response time was killer...(5 minute wait) and it was CHEAP! $50 bucks got my car up the road, and he even reversed my car into my moms parking stall....and it aint easy to do...i mean this guy was fast, efficient, and humble!
Someone hit my car and I needed a tow. I called cheap towing and said they would be there in 30 mins. The guy showed up right on time. He knew exactly what he was doing. These guys are very experienced. On the way to the repair shop the tow driver was very kind. I appreciate everything they done for me. I will definitely use them again due to the price and how great the guys are. THANKS CHEAP TOWING!
My daughter's year old vehicle sprung a massive oil leak. Called roadside assistance and immediately received a call from Jason at Cheap Towing. He stayed in contact with me, letting me know the status of his arrival (great communication!). When he arrived, he had to push the car down two levels of the parking garage (never complained once and did it so efficiently!) b/c of the tight space. Very personable (which can be rare nowadays) and I completely trust him with her car. Mahalo, Jason!!!
If you are stuck somewhere trying to find a good tow company. Look no further and just call. Today I was in the same boat and decided to check yelp. I saw that someone mentioned he gives a flat rate so I called and sure enough he was cheaper then another company. He also was very quick to arrive and very professional. Also is nice. Had to yelp to recommend him. He made a very stressful situation a little better.
A little late on the arrival, but to be expected in the area. Flat rate, half price of other tows. Nice attitude, quick service. Driver was very courteous and sympathized with me. Appreciate that since it was my second tow in two days!
I so appreciate the nice attitude. You be nice and others are nice. He gave me a good affordable price and an ETA. When he got to the pick up location where I was, he was very pleasant and we had small talk. Tow truck drivers can have a reputation on being rude or grumpy. Cheap Towing wasn't, gave good service and good price. I appreciate the company when I needed help. I would recommend!!!!!
gave me a great quote immediately over the phone and responded quickly. Friendly guy, great rates. Advised me on a issue on my car unrelated to towing that made the tow better. Afterwards, he gave me a ride to work. Pretty much as good as it gets.
Not too shabby. The phone number attached to this a cell phone and the guy says hello. That caught me off guard. Gave me an estimate from Koko Head to the dealership as 130. That was better than whatever towing service the dealership had which was about 200. In the end with tax it came to 125. Only waited a couple hours for the tow truck to get here and 15 min put the driver gave me call to let me know where he was. Not very talkative but still nice. I feel bad I didn't give a tip because I only my card. Didn't catch his name otherwise I'd give him a shoutout. Thank you driver!
Highly recommended! Needed to tow my car to an auto shop after my clutch completely died on me. Driver was quick to meet me, great service, and affordable.
called night before to get a tow the next morning... driver arrived around the time I needed to get my broken down car out of my complex. SUPER fast and efficient! I was amazed at how quickly and safely he managed to maneuver my car into a tight parking space in a crowded area.
I called other companies to get estimates on how much a tow from mccully to waialae would be..... This company BY FAR was the cheapest. I will recommend this place (use again....hopefully not for awhile).
My car wouldn't start after a meeting I had out on the west side. Called Cheap Towing and they said they would send a truck right away. Driver made it there within 45 minutes at around 230pm. Unfortunately I had a 4WD vehicle so he couldn't tow me. He jumped my car but since I was suspecting a bad alternator I was hesitant about driving back to town. The driver offered to follow me to my battery shop and said that if I did die on the road he would push me to the side and wait until the truck with the dollies could come tow me the rest of the way. Made it safely to my battery shop and was very thankful. Would recommend them to anyone and would use them again (hopefully, won't need to).
Best tow company on the island. from waialae to kailua $80. The driver was quick to meet me and loaded my car up quick too. I will definitely use this company in the the future. if your looking for a cheap tow look no further. 5*****s Highly recommend
Really great towing company! First time getting towed but if it's with these guys I wouldn't mind getting towed again! The guy who came, Young, was extremely friendly and funny and made the ride very entertaining. Plus at $55, it was a deal! Highly recommend them as they made the whole experience easy and affordable!
Our van broke down one sunny afternoon, and it was my job to call the tow truck while guy tried to fix the car.
In the space of about an hour, I called about two dozen tow truck companies. I stopped calling after Cheap Towing. This guy is seriously the cheapest out of ANYBODY out there--by about half the price! I didn't expect the name to be so true. I suspected a marketing ploy. But lo! Cheap towing is really cheap!
We had him tow our van to Oscar's Auto Repair in Kalihi--also highly recommended.
Thank you so much Kimberly for the review! My car died at walmart (keaumoku) tonight and I just talked to Young the owner of cheap towing. He said he'll be there first thing in the morning and it will only cost me $70 to tow it from walmart to palolo. I called Oahu Auto Towing services and the guy said the price will start from about $150 and up because I have a Ford Excursion full size, so I told him to drop dead and go to hell...lol. So glad I read your review and I called them up...thanks again!!
Completely recommend this company! Fast, friendly and available! I locked my friends keys in her car and called around for a locksmith, it was already 11pm. Calling around I got a bunch of grouchy half awake phone reps that said they couldn't tell me the charge until the job was done. Some had a flat rate of $100!!! So we ended up calling Cheap Towing. They charge a flat rate and where very knowledgable and quick. They where there in just 15 mins & had the keys out in 2! Plus the guy who helped us was super nice.
Definitely recommend this company for all towing and locksmith needs!!!
IF YOU NEED CHEAP FAST TOWING...THIS IS IT!!!!
I relied on yelp to help me find a good cheap towing company a few months back since my friend who towed was all backed up.
Called the number listed above and I was able to get a tow truck an hour after calling with a price of $60 because it was before 3:30pm, otherwise it would have been $75...although I wasn't ready until almost 4pm the tow driver still charged me for $60!
The drive to the shop was easy and comfortable. I didn't get that awkward feeling while sitting there and the driver hooked everything up without damaging anything on my car. I was so impressed with their service the 1st time that I relied and used them for the 2nd time I needed towing.
yes yes yes!!!!!!!!! this is the best!!!!! and the cheapest you will find plus the guy was super sweet!!!! highly highly recommended!! look no further!!!
Fast Friendly Cheap Service!!!!
As I leaving my dentist's low-clearance parking garage, I discovered that I had a flat tire. I found Cheap Towing on Yelp and gave them a call. Young, the owner told me he would arrive in half-an-hour. I was relieved as I had a very important appointment that morning that I couldn't miss. Not only did he put on my spare tire quickly, but, he showed me how to do it in case I ever needed to change my own tire one day. I was very pleased with his kind manner, efficiency and fair pricing. Then, as luck may have it, I tried to start my car and my battery was dead. I called Young back, and he returned within a few minutes and jumped started my car. Thank you Cheap Towing for saving the day!
These guys hooked it up!! Towed my car from Makakilo to Salt Lake at 5am for only $100!!! They were extremely friendly from the minute I first called them down to our final transaction and their departure. I will definitely be going back to these guys whenever I need something towed. I would recommend these guys to anybody and everybody.
I just got my car towed. I'm very critical when it comes to service, value and assurance. The owner was very professional, and although I had an already difficult day at work topped off with having a busted starter, he put everything into perspective. My mind is at ease, my car will be fixed, and more importantly I got home safely. Additionally, I saved so much money. I highly recommend you contact this company immediately if your chief concern is having piece of mind!
So I've never had my car towed before last week so I don't have anything to compare it to but I have to say that it was pretty painless. This guy was very amicable and rather entertaining, which is nice when some guy decides to jump off an overpass and back up traffic to a ridiculous degree. True to the name, towing was cheap and fast. What more could you ask for?
Used cheap towing today, had to wait for service, due to business being busy, they only have 3 tow trucks, and it's a family business, but the wait was worth it, Norman the driver was very sharp and friendly, he hooked up my 2008 Toyota Rav4 and towed it to Toyota. dealers in Mapunapuna, he was fast and real cheap ($60.00), called others before it was $85.00 to $150.00....I would recommend this tow company to everyone I know....everyones post was right on...again Norman thank you very much.
Where do I start... My wheel cylinder went out in Nuuanu and I looked to Yelp to find a decent tow guy, since my friend was busy on a tow already. The dude was a little late, didn't speak great english, BUT he was a stud. It was INEXPENSIVE and he was a stand up guy. Talked a lot about himself and for some people that's not what they like, but he was just being himself. Really down to earth. He actually took my truck to Kaneohe THEN dropped me off in Kahalu'u!!! Say What?!! Service with a smile and didn't even try and charge me extra. I tried to give him more, but he wasn't having it.
FAST! friendly! There when I really needed a tow. Recommend them to anyone.
I love cheap towing especially the driver Jason. He is awesome, courteous, and knowledgeable. The service is impeccable for the price. Jason has towed at least five cars from my family members and friends. Young is also great but he is quite bit of a character and do not try and bargain with him just rest assure he's giving you a good price.
This service was excellent, and when I had to ride with him, it was very comfortable. He came a little late, but that was expected especially for the morning rush hour. He was very nice and his price was CHEAP! I'd call him again if I needed a tow, hopefully I won't need one, lol.
This really is a great towing company. Stand up people. Car broke down on the ala wai at 530 traffic when the bridge in Aiea broke down and closed H1. We called around for cheap towing cause we needed it from Waikiki to Millilani. He said it was 90 flat! What a deal! Took him an hour to get to Waikiki but I expect every tow company to take a good hour.
Once he came the side logo said Saigon towing? But it was the same people we called. The earlier reviews were right about their English not being good. But who cares when u can get a cheap tow?
Ill surely be calling then again if I break down. Thanks!
I was very please with the service I received! I had a last minute need and Young was there right away to pick my car up! Truly the name is very fitting considering the price for this tow was VERY reasonable. He even charged me less than what was quoted! Friendly, English speaking, and helpful are the words that stand out. I was very frustrated about having my car towed this day, but this was turned around very quickly because of Cheap Towing. I would definitely recommend to friends.
From Ala Moana to Kahala 50.00 i was expecting to pay 55.00 because that's what he quoted me on the phone. He dropped off my truck at my friends place AND than asked if I needed a ride to work no extra charge.. This is by far one of the best tow experience I've had..
Just got towed and I must say this was the most painless tow experience I've ever had....
$90 from Kapahulu to Aina Haina....a little pricier than a lot of the posts here but it was 9:30 pm so it's after hours.....
They still get 5stars tho cuz the driver Jason was prompt (20 minutes) and was extremely professional and polite. Service is lacking today...it's funny that I got better service from a tow truck driver than I get at a lot of pricey department stores.... It was still reasonable price wise and would definitely recommend them to family and friends.....thanks Jason!
CHEAP TOWING! LITERALLY!
These guys are good, cheap and friendly too.
My old Beemer "Big Bertha" won't start on S. Beretania St. I figured it was the battery. Got it jumped. Nope. Buggah won't start!
Dang! It's something else. Idk what, but it just won't start. I can't tow her with my old
reliable motorcycle, "Brando", so...Not having AAA I am forced to call a tow company like yesterday!
Hmm. Haven't towed anything since I got stalled on the San Mateo, CA Bridge back in 2006! Yes, it's been awhile!
WHY I RECOMMEND CHEAP TOWING:
$40 daytime and $50 at night. They might swing you a deal at night if you're nice! I was towed "after" the day hours, but he still took $40! Sweet Deal! Please realize this was a IN-TOWN tow and I'm smiling!
They hooked "Big Bertha" up fast and got me from point A to point B in no time!
I had it towed in a one way alley too. No worry, Beef curry! These guys are good!
Very friendly in a "English as a 2nd Language" sort of way! Pretty straight forward. Funky humor, but no nonsense attitude.
I had "Big Bertha" towed a second time from point B to point C (BMW Hospital) and this time the driver brought his wife too! Well luckily I wasn't sitting in between them! Awkward!
YES OR NO? YES! I definitely RECOMMEND CHEAP TOWING if in need of a Cheap Tow! Not perfect, but they get the JOB DONE! You don't feel ripped off and it's straight CHEAP!
OVERALL GRADE: 4.5
The first tow the driver got to me in 10 minutes. The second tow took almost 2 hours, so call once or twice to confirm! Have a price quote too!
