Knysna Towing Service and Roadside Assistance including Breakdown Repair. Let's help you out today!

24H Knysna Towing Service

We offer an owner-run ethical, reliable Knysna 24-hour Breakdown Service, Roadside Assistance & Towing Service - a most reasonable tow truck option. We also offer a long-distance towing service throughout South Africa, though costs are obviously higher then. We do auto towing of all vehicles and trailers up to 10 ton.

Whether you've had an accident or suffered a roadside breakdown, we can assist with anything from vehicle towing service to roadside repair (from flat batteries to tired alternators) to get you going again in situ where possible, else we can effect repairs in our Service Center workshop. Automotive breakdown and recovery is in our DNA!

We are affiliated to all insurance companies, reducing the stress of the admin concomitant to vehicle towing.

Our drivers are friendly, competent, honest and knowledgeable and take pride in their appearance and safety records. Each truck has 4 cell phones on hand and we have trackers installed in our trucks for both safety and speed monitoring. We don't follow unethical business practice and do what we do above board.

KMS offers a set rate for towing and for storage which is CCTV & Armed Response secured. Our clients are made aware of all our fees up front, which supports transparency and cost-effectiveness.

Apart from increasing your security (by focusing on low delay time) and offering transportation, we can also transport your trailer, boat or repaired car to where you need it and we also offer a "Family Run" should the client (and family / companions) need to be transported to a hotel or B&B.

"Professionalism, Punctuality! On Monday we broke down in Knysna. We were towed in by Marck from KMS who not only was quick, knowledgeable, and helpful, but recommended a great auto electrician & car hire company. He even left us with his number just in case we needed anything. We will definitely recommend KMS, thank you so much."

"I have not only used KMS to service my Mercedes ML 270cdi but also their towage service when my vehicle could ONLY be transported via a flatbed truck. Having contacted Marck Cooper on a Sunday afternoon to arrange the pick-up, his service truck arrived promptly at 07:00 Monday morning. Professional service, safety and care of your vehicle. A great company to deal with."
