Started in May 2009, Pro Tow started out as EZ Tow based in Willard Mo, serving northern Greene county area. Within the first three years of operation, EZ Tow became the dominate tow service in the area due to its revolutionary flat rate pricing, professional curtious service and prompt response times. By 2012 a second truck, and full time operator was added along with off-road recovery capibilities. By 2014 EZ Tow was growing faster than ever. This prompted a move to our current location at 305 Proctor Rd where we remodeled a old car wash into our custom built office / shop complex. In 2015 a name change was in order to prevent any confusion with another local business - and in October 2015 EZ Tow became PRO TOW.

In 1993 Drag racing legend Richard Schroeder hand picked Hotrod as his driving replacement and was taught by the legends of the sport - including Bill "Maverick" Golden (Little Red Wagon), Richard Hutchins (Chevy Rebellion), Mike Kuhl (Kuhl & Olsen).
Hotrod's talents have also been put to use with Monster Trucks such as Bigfoot, Raminator, Grave Digger, and many more. And has worked as a Tech Inspector for NHRA.
