Budget Towing: A Tow Truck on Christmas Eve

On the first day of Christmas, Downtown Wentzville has for me: a tow truck on Christmas Eve.

It was a merry Christmas Eve at the mall. The stores are closing but you've finally found that last perfect present, so you head for the parking lot only to find that a foot and a half of snow has fallen. You load up the packages and head out on treacherous icy roads—only to end up in a ditch a few blocks later. Now what? It's Christmas Eve!

Not to worry. Budget Towing is on call 24/7, including holidays. And they work with AAA, Quest, Road America and some State Farm agencies, so there's a good chance you'll be covered.

Rodney Sherman opened Budget Towing 19 years ago after a career in the military reserves. The Budget Towing headquarters on Luetkenhaus Boulevard in Wentzville is home to 19 tow trucks and service vans. There's even a tow truck that can tow other tow trucks!

Budget provides tow and impound services for many local communities including Wentzville, Lake Saint Louis, O'Fallon and Foristell, as well as for several local auto dealerships and repair shops.

Sherman is a member of the National Towing Alliance, the Towing & Recovery Association of America and the Towing & Recovery Association of Missouri. He has worked hard to help raise the level of professionalism in the towing industry.

Sherman and his staff are very involved with the community. The annual Christmas parade lines up in his parking lot, and cold participants are welcome to warm up in his shop before the long, often chilly, walk to the fire station.

Budget towed my son's car which had a blow out in the construction mess on 70.. Although I was irked with my kids, the office and yard people were exceptionally nice and accomodating. Even when the kids forget to bring the keys...
