Vito's Towing

​Vito's Towing of Clifton, N.J., captured the Second Place Award for Medium-Duty Truck in the national Shine ‘n Star Tow Truck Photo Beauty Contest, hosted by Tow Times magazine and powered by Ford Trucks.  

The winner is a 2012 Peterbilt 337 with a Jerr-Dan 500/280, 25-ton towing unit. It sports a custom eye-catching vinyl wrap in black, red, and silver with reflective lettering. Additional features include aluminum wheels, chrome visor, chrome stack cover and Whelen side strobes. 

One of the company’s fleet of state-of-the-art tow trucks, including flatbeds, wreckers and heavy-duty trucks, it was chosen out of 550 entries submitted in five categories this year from around the country and Canada.

The Shine ‘n Star Tow Truck Photo Beauty Contest first-place award is a nod of recognition for Vito's Towing, which opened its doors in 1981 in Clifton, N.J., and remains a family-owned business operated by Peter and Vito DeRobertis servicing the tri-state area.
