Hanser's Towing

Hanser's Wrecker Company was established in 1965.  Since then, we have added outlets in Columbus, Big Timber, Lewistown, Livingston and Hardin, Montana.  We are a family-owned corporation dedicated to the service of the motoring public.

Our fleet of wreckers and car carriers are all state-of-the-art equipped maintaining annual upgrades to continue superior service.  Our amazing air cushion recovery system, capable of lifting up to 100,000 pounds, has saved our customers thousands of dollars by up righting loaded trailers without having to transfer the cargo.  In addition to our fleet of wreckers, we have abundant support equipment including our heavy duty 5th wheel trucks, lowboys, reefer trailers, loaders, track hoe, vac-trucks, dump trucks, side dumps, dozer, forklifts, and flatbeds.  No matter what cargo is being carried, we have the manpower, equipment, and expertise to handle it in a safe, efficient manner.

Hanser's wrecker operators are well trained and all have completed certification in Towing, Recovery and Traffic Management. Sixteen operators are also certified in the 40-hour hazardous waste operations and emergency response training.  Hanser's supervisors have completed Disaster and Emergency Service (DES) Certification and are registered with FEMA as well.​

Specialized Recovery

Our state-of-the-art Air Cushion Recovery System enables us to safely upright loaded tractor-trailer combinations without causing additional structural damage to either one.  This prevents the need to transfer perishable loads in extreme weather conditions making the load salvageable.  Often times we use our reefer to maintain proper temperatures for loads needing to be preserved.  When the Air Cushion Recovery System is used to upright cubed loads, the load can usually proceed to its destination. This system of recovery saves insurance and transportation companies thousands of dollars every year.
