Our Mission.

It is our mission to create a marketplace for transportation equipment, providing the services necessary for its purchase, maintenance and disposition.
It is our goal to raise the quality of life of those in the towing, hauling and service industries by helping to implement innovations and technological advances through "World Class" service, workmanship and support.

What We Do.

We specialize in the sale and financing of automotive towing equipment, industrial hauling solutions and service bodies, including a wide variety of new and used tow trucks, wreckers, industrial and car carriers, multi-car haulers, industrial trailers and related equipment. Based in New Hampton, Iowa — Zip's AW Direct has a modern 95,000 square foot facility consisting of warehousing, shop area, sales offices, retail parts department, large enclosed blast room and four environmentally-approved downdraft paint rooms.

We opened a second branch in Taylor, Michigan (by the Detroit Metro Airport) in March 2012. This location features a complete parts and accessory showroom, body upfit service department, in-stock new and used equipment, and in-house financing. 

We provide quality truck body installation, paint and repair of hydraulic, mechanical or electrical systems. We have the ability and the know-how to match the right body with the right chassis and assemble and paint the unit to the highest quality standards.

We THANK YOU for giving us the opportunity to work with you. Please browse our equipment and parts inventory and call us with any questions or for more information. We have a large customer service and sales team standing by to help you with whatever you need.
