Striving to be different from the rest is in every facet of his business.

Our story begins in 2008, when 808 Towing owner and operator Peter Darlington sold his convertible Jaguar to purchase his first tow truck from Frank Jacinto (Frank’s Towing). A charming older tow truck with a lot of character he named him “Frank”. Frank never let Peter down accept possibly at he Gas pump. “Frank” was and still is the Mascot of 808 Towing.
With a background rooted in the auto service industry, Peter is every inch the problem-solving customer service person. His strong sense of responsibility to the community and firm belief in “cause and effect” are the driving forces behind the company and how it is run.
Darlington’s humble beginnings as a one-man tow operation worked day and night around the clock stumbling upon one challenge to fix after another. With persistence, optimism and fierce determination he was able to grow at a rapid pace with an efficient team of drivers, each of whom is dedicated to providing you with friendly, quality service.
808 Towing’s goal is to minimize the inconvenience of a tow and to be as helpful as possible. With a growing fleet of sharp, professional, fire engine red trucks that are always clean and maintained, and a private storage lot that is conveniently located in central Maui. Clear communication and punctuality are the promises Darlington brings to each and every tow. From the moment your call is answered to the time we part ways, 808 Towing is with you every “smile” of the way!
From the beginning, 808 Towing set out to be a different kind of tow company. He set out to make a difference. He set out to succeed. He’s one that not only gets you from A to B, but does so with the kind of excellence in quality and service that raises the image of our industry.
