About Our Company


Affordable Towing in Salem Oregon has a rich history in towing.  In the early 1960’s Jack Conwell’s Father and Grandfather had a body shop and Tow Company.  this makes Jack the third generation of Conwell Towwers.  this is experience that can’t be taught in a classroom.


Jack’s first truck. Jack rebuilt, repainted, and restored this Vulcan Cradle Snatcher in his spare time to start Affordable Towing.



Jack’s second truck. Jack completely rebuilt this 1975 Ford with a Holmes 480 bed.  The viper blue color has remained the Company’s signature color ever since.


First Rollbed. As Jack’s interest and involvement in Custom and Classic cars grew, so did the need for a rollbed.  This was Affordable Towing’s third truck.


As the Family grew so did Affordable. In 1995 Jack noticed a need for heavy Truck Towing and started with this Cab-Over Peterbuilt with a Landoll trailer.


In less than 7 years Affordable Towing fleet has grown substantially.  By providing professional courteous service, Affordable Towing has continued to grow year after year.  The above photo was taken in 1998.  Since then we have grown to over 15 trucks.
