Million Miler Prompt Towing Service

Meet the VP of Prompt Towing Service, with three Cat® C15 engines that have each gone beyond a million miles.

Prompt Towing Service is a Million Miler three times over. When they first joined the Million Miler Club, though, they had mixed feelings. As Vice President, Dominick Almeida put it: “Honestly, I thought, ‘Great, now I’m going to need a new engine!’” That hasn’t been the case, however — their three C15-powered Peterbilts just keep on trucking.

Prompt Towing Service serves the Charlotte County, Florida area, “pretty much hauling anything.” That includes transporting a piece of the World Trade Center to Key West for display as part of a 9/11 memorial sculpture — an experience Almeida described as his most memorable event on the job.

Some of Prompt Towing Service’s customers have been with the family-owned company since it opened more than 30 years ago.

What’s the secret to that type of long-term success?

“The Cat® engine — it’s built to last,” Almeida says.

They keep their engines running strong by servicing them with genuine Cat parts, purchased from the Peterbilt Store in Ft. Myers.

“They are reliable and get us what we need as quickly as possible to keep our trucks on the road,” says Almeida. “With the quality and longevity, you can’t go wrong with Cat products.”
