“Great service. Went beyond call of duty for me.
“I have to have my car towed twice. Once from the side of I95 and once from my home to the mechanic. Both drivers were so nice! The one who picked me up from 95 told me to just sit in the tow truck so I was safe. He was so nice. If I had a young family member that was in a broken down car, I would send this company to get them. Both gentlemen that helped me, I really believe would look out for your family member as their own.
“Tow driver Hillbilly was completely professional. Quick show up time little over 30 minutes all together I wld say 45 minutes from call order to truck on flat bed including paper wrk. Definitely storing Universal Towing just in case. Oh plus they beat all other towing prices by $50 !!! Tnx
“Needing the tow in the first place aside, their device was great! The car was safe and secure and I got home quick. Ask for Catfish!
“Company was prompt and professional sending someone out to pick up my truck that had the fuel pump blow on the interstate. Driver showed up about 15 or 20 minutes later, loaded our truck with no problem and then drove us home and even though it was a tricky parking situation got it in the exact spot we needed it in. The driver hilbilly was a delight to ride and work with and he did an excellent job , I highly recommend him!
“So let me start with I’m 2.5 weeks fresh to living in Florida. With all the stress of moving from Michigan to Florida THE LAST thing I needed nor wanted was car issues but guess what... I got car issues. After crying in the parking lot of a grocery store for 20 minutes I finally called Universal Towing about 15 minutes later a gentleman with “catfish” stiched into his shirt, shows up, jumps in my car, does a few tricks and gets my car TO START. After I pick my jaw up from the floor he said “I’ve been doing this for awhile, and if we can fix it there’s no need to tow you, I’ll try and fix it. I just always treat people the same way I would want to be treated.” HOW AMAZING... being so new to the area I feel so blessed to have had my first “bad” experience with such a great man for this company!! 10/10 recommend, ask for “catfish”
“Very nice ppl
“Very friendly, professional and prompt👍🏻
“Called to get into my car. They arrived quickly, and I was back on the road in no time! great service!
“It was pouring down rain and catfish still made a bad situation fun. Thanks catfish you guys rock
“trustworthy tow company in Daytona
“Excellent customer service and professionalism. Thank you Universal Towing and specifically Freddie for a great experience. Universal Towing sent to pick up my vehicle by Buick Roadside Service. Great choice Buick! I recommend Freddie and Universal Towing with confidence.
“Jim and Shane at the Port Orange location went above and beyond my expectations to satisfy my issue. Both were very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend.
“Great on time service
“They could be a little more human. My Husband is a Gulf War Veteran with 100 % Disability and disabled veteran licence plates on the front and rear if his car and we rent from a local condo that only allows 1 vehicle per unit a tag is supposed to be hung anytime your vehicle is in the parking lot. The problem is one of my husband's disabilities deals with his memory along with ptsd and a number of other things. We accept full responsibility for the pmt and are not trying to get out of paying but by the time he is payed again the cost of stirage will be so high we wont be able to afford the tow bill and our regular bills. The fourth of July and Universal Towing won't work anything out on a payment issue.
“They made a stressful situation easy to handle. The best!!!
“Willing to work with you on alternatives. Always answered.
“Towed a 73 year old handicapped veteran’s van from a handicapped parking space because he was parked in a handicapped spot that was apparently reserved for Jimmy John’s customers only but he did not see the sign stating that and he dined in the Starlite Diner next door. Left him, his wife, 2 babies, and 3 other children stranded. Come on guys. A handicapped veteran with the correct permits and plates on display. Charged him $160 and they didn’t care a bit about the situation when he tried explaining it to dispatch. I would be embarrassed. A little courtesy would go a long way.
“What can I say....Universal has been my go to place since I have been in the area. Prices are great and they really care. They have taken care of my family, friends, and now my business. Love these guys!
“He was very nice. Came within a few minutes and reasonably prices to go around corner

“Great company! The owner Fred worked with me on prices, very understanding and great with customers!
“You deleted my post from yesterday giving you a terrible review? That's pretty suspect. Means you don't want people seeing the truth. You price gouge, then defend yourself by telling me prices are set by the county. Well, I have the county contract, it's public record, and 125 is waht you are supposed to charge, not 260, then give a "discount" of 50. Even with your fake discount, you are still above the rate the County says you should charge.
“Universal Towing went above and beyond what I expected. Jim and Kaine took care of everything I needed from a wrecked vehicle my husband was in. Myself being in a wheelchair, they took care of getting personal items etc from the vehicle for me. Thanks Jim and Kaine
“Great overall experience with this company. Took a lot of car into making sure my car (lowered bmw328i) was towed safely
“Great service, a lot of these reviews are people upset about their car being towed. Driver got to me fast, was polite, and even stopped to get me a drink. No issues whatsoever
“Had a great experience with universal! They towed my truck twice in two days. Very happy with service and the time it took them to reach me when I was on the side of the road!!
“The timing ,good service ,good attitude
“Totally knowledgeable ! Quick and friendly. Great price!
“Unfortunately been towed 3 times in 5 days diesel pusher had lift pump issues. Universal bar far the best towing company this week & all previous breakdowns. Professional polite & reasonably priced ($200 less than last tow) highly recommend. Big thanks to Charles. 😊😊
