Nestled in the heart of Collin County, Sauls Wrecker Service has been providing the highest quality service in the towing industry since 1956. Our founder, Lloyd Sauls, started by fixing up old cars and selling them. In 1959, Lloyd and his father-in-law bought a piece of land off of Highway 380 to allow room for the growing business. They drove to Arkansas to get lumber directly from a sawmill, then built the structures that are still used today.
The fence around Sauls is not original. Back in the 1950s, businesses—including Sauls—used chain link fences. So this hard-working lot, with wrecked cars and a succession of damaged vehicles, was clearly visible from the highway. Lady Bird Johnson was not pleased. In 1965, under the leadership of President Lyndon B. Johnson, Congress passed the Highway Beautification Act and as a result Sauls—like many other businesses–got a new fence, 10’ tall, that blocks the lot from highway view. Now, over 50 years later, the fence still stands.
Ownership of Sauls passed from the Sauls family to the current owner, Keith LaFollett, in 2006. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, Sauls has not closed a single day since 1972. As this tradition of service continues into a new generation, the company remains committed to the values of hard work and personal attention that are uniquely Sauls.

Notice anything special about our trucks? Along with the distinctive black and yellow design, we’ve named each truck for one of our favorite Texas Rangers! Yes, we are big baseball fans and we believe in supporting our local guys. We recently upgraded our fleet, so you’ll know Sauls has arrived when the Rangers come to your aid. Have a favorite player? Let us know and we may just name our next truck after him!
Truck #29, Beltre
The Beltre truck is named for #29 Adrian Beltre – “The Captain” – famous for his home run knee drop. This powerhouse hitter plays third base for the Rangers.
Truck #7, Pudge
Who doesn’t love Pudge? Our #7 truck is named for Pudge Rodriguez, our favorite retired catcher newly elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Once he is inducted, his #7 will officially be retired by the Rangers. Our #7 will keep rolling.
Truck #34, Nolan
Our #34 truck packs a punch! It’s named for retired Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan, the all-time leader in no hitters and one of just a handful of pitchers to pitch in four different decades: 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Nolan may have retired, but our Ryan Express is going strong.
