Our Story

Action Towing has been a family owned, small business servicing the San Francisco Peninsula for almost 40 years.

In 1983, Bill Banks established Action Towing and Road Service, a company dedicated to its customers and providing "honest" services.  Bill grew up on the Peninsula and spent over 20 years as a Police Officer in Belmont, California before establishing Action Towing.

His son, Brian Banks took over the company after the unexpected passing of his father Bill in 2009. After working alongside his father since the young age of 15, Brian quickly proved he was able to not only continue his fathers legacy but also scale the operation to new locations and services. Since 2009 Brian has grown Action Towing from a small company to an operation with close to 100 pieces of equipment and 5 locations while still upholding the standards set by his father in 1983. Those values focus on excellent service, quality equipment and a long standing positive reputation in the community.  Today, Action Towing has locations across the Bay Area and is able to service members with a large number of towing and road service needs.
