Provide fast, friendly towing, transport, and flatbed hauling services by clean-cut, uniformed, certified towing professionals.


Tow Force, based in Puyallup, Washington, is a locally-owned family business founded by Steve and Carrie Swanlund. No stranger to towing, Steve started in the towing and recovery field in 1985 in the US Army. He was Recovery Specialist at Camp Casey in South Korea, and at Fort Carson in Colorado. Steve towed tanks using M88’s. In 2002, after leaving the service, Steve and Carrie opened 15th Street Automotive in Puyallup. With ASE-certified technicians, excellent customer service, and a positive attitude, 15th Street Automotive is a well-respected auto repair business.

According to Steve Swanlund, “I enjoyed the towing and recovery profession while in the US Army and, with two decades of experience in the auto repair business and a need for clean-cut tow services in our area, towing was a natural growth direction for us.” In June 2020, Steve and Carrie purchased their first flatbed truck and started towing for their customers and other local repair shops. Steve completed his training and certification through WreckMasters, an international training and certification organization recognized as the towing industry leader.
