Family owned and operated since 1941, we’re not just another towing company; we’re a tradition you can trust.

We Go Way Back

In 1941, Woodrow and Nellie Herring Sr. opened a small garage on the side of a dirt road, providing excavation and towing services to Northern Virginia. Rooted in quality and professionalism, the company quickly began to grow.

In the late 70s, Woodrow “Woody” Herring Jr. took control of the blossoming family company. Armed with a vision for the future and a passion for excellence he revolutionized the industry, building an elite towing and recovery service never before seen. Credited with establishing one of the first dedicated storage lots, developing cutting-edge tools and techniques, and transforming driver training, his employees became more than just drivers, they became recovery specialists.

Since then, each generation has brought new ideas, technologies, and capabilities to the company, as well as a renewed commitment to the highest standards of safety and service possible. Today, we operate out of two locations and provide emergency towing services 24 hours a day 365 days a year. As the company continues to grow, providing an expanding array of recovery services, our family remains dedicated to our simple founding motto— “Quality First.”

Willow Spring Towing and Recovery is ready to provide high-end, reliable service 24/7.

We are proud to serve the DC Metro area and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
