Why Join TRAK
We would like you as a member of our prestigious association. TRAK was founded in April of 1981 for the purpose of preserving the integrity of the independent tower in Kentucky. Please take the time to read this important message. If you are content with all aspects of your industry, you should pass this message on to another operator who is not. However, if you are not happy with your insurance, municipal contracts, storage laws, insurance "dumping", taxes or your perceived image by the public, then read on.
Just think of how many ways TRAK can help you save money, solve some of your business problems, provide you with useful business information, and provide you with an opportunity to meet others in the towing industry. The Towing & Recovery Association of Kentucky was formed to assist you and the towing industry in such matters. We are committed to excellence in the fields of education and training, legislation, and the vital services we offer our members.
The association was formed by towmen - from single-truck operators to interstate carrier operators. If you are a small operator, you represent the majority and are the backbone of our industry in Kentucky. Please join in our commitment to improve both our image and the future progress of the towing industry. Remember: with over 650 registered towing operators in Kentucky; your membership can build this association into something we can all be proud of: a group of towers united in integrity and leadership.
