Giving a huge thank you to Marc at Junebugs for saving me last week. He was so kind, patient and professional, not at all what I was expecting from anyone in the towing world.I wish there were more honest guys like Marc doing business today. The world would be a much better place.I would definitely recommend Junebugs to anyone looking for excellent service.

Marc was awesome. Probably the most helpful and expedient tow truck driver we have ever dealt with. AAA wouldn't tow our dualie 1 ton truck as it was too big. Most the other companies quoted a tow in the $300-$400 range to tow less than 1 mile to our house. Marc came out and did the whole thing in less than an hour for a far more reasonable price. Seriously the best tow company and driver around!

Junebugs SAVED me a couple of weeks ago. My Mini Cooper came with run-flats, but those stupid tires had issues all the time, so I finally gave up and got normal affordable tires. The problem is that there's no spare tire. Calculated risk on my part. So,when I had the inevitable flat, I needed help. Junebugs was able to patch my tire on the spot!!!  Which turned out to be a huge lifesaver because guess what: you can't rent a car on a Sunday afternoon. Who knew? I didn't! And I had REALLY important plans that night in Yountville, so without Junebug's help, I would have been in trouble. Thank you, Junebugs, for saving the day!

A large THANK YOU to Junebugs, for diagnosing my starter motor issue, over the phone, meaning that i didn't NEED a tow!!  thanks very much, and i know who to call next time.(i'm sure i'd have made this a 5-star review if he'd actually done a tow for me:)

This review is 3 years overdue. I bought a 1972 Citroen SM in the Oakland hills. The car had 4 flat tires from sitting in the garage for 20 years! Driveway had a very steep incline that would require someone with the right expertise. I needed a pro to get it out and deliver it to me safely in San Jose. Marc at Junebug's towing was amazing. He took great care to pull the car our carefully as not to damage it. He was super excited to recover such a neat car and I couldn't be happier with the service!! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a simple tow or a more complicated recovery.

You know how it goes. You never want to need a toe or jump but... If I ever do, I hope I'm in your vicinity! I worked 20 years in the automotive industry. If I still did, I'd send all my business here!!!

Once again, Marc is the man to call!!!I had to move my toolbox, so called around to get some quotes from the local guys to tow it from Pleasanton..  What I got was, "Sorry we like to keep our tows local"  or "Sure I can tow it, but if the wheels start dragging and flatspotting I am not responsible," or "Sure , but do you have your own straps, because we don't want the liability with our straps"....HUH?????Marc is "Sure, no problem" He is careful, puts cardboard or towels under the straps, and it is locked down tight.  He also knows which way to face your swivel wheels so they don't drag.Once again, Marc can tow anything.... and never a doubt in my mind that it will arrive safely.

Marc was awesome! It was cool seeing him load my bike up onto his truck with such ease. You can tell this guy is experienced and knows what he is doing. He was sent to me by Progressive and I am glad they did. I would recommend his services to any bikers in need of a tow. Thanks again!

Didn't give them hardly any advanced notice that I needed a scooter transported from Berkeley to Vallejo. They did the job within a couple of hours. I didn't have to leave my home. They went to the shop, picked up the scooter, drove it to my home, unloaded it and also gave me tips on how to care for my scooter! Great customer service!

Knowledgeable,  quick, efficient,  and very reasonably priced.  I have a first Gen camaro that has no breaks, steering, or transmission.  Safe to assume it doesn't run -- yet.  The car was tucked away in the back corner garage of my building that had a sharp 90 degree to the garage from the narrow driveway with a 20% grade, and it needed to be transported to my new place.  Jay met with me a week before the job to assess the area he had to work.  Promptly confirmed that it was a doable job and arrived on time the day off.  The car was out and delivered in an hour.  I couldn't have asked for a better experience.Thanks again!

Yelp is always right 98% of the time. I thought how is it possible a tow service could even get close to a five!!?Well, this one is. Owner answers phone ASAP. Rates are reasonable. Clean equipment, friendly owner. Spacious truck so you can go along for the ride.

Marc got my car to the shop with minimal effort on my part, updating me throughout the process. Extremely helpful.

10/20/2015

Marc (Mark? not sure which...let's go with Marc)...responded early the next morning to my Yelp message sent at midnight  to get a quote to tow my car with a clear quote and the reasoning behind it. And his quote was $20 less than the next closest quote I eventually got (and as much as $70 less than the highest quote).  This wasn't an emergency, so I told him to work it into his schedule wherever he could, as long as it was there that night so the mechanic could work on it first thing in the morning.  He ran into a little difficulty moving my car, but kept me informed about what was going on and got it delivered late in the day, but in plenty of time for me. I love me a sole proprietor who takes his work seriously! I hope I don't need a tow any time soon, but I'm keeping Marc's phone number in my contacts just in case.

Super helpful and pleasant in a less than savory situation of an ill car.

Marc is awesome.  I managed to blow a tire while parking after hitting the curb.  It had been a long day, trust me.  Marc was soon on the scene to change the tire after suggesting we take that route vs. towing.  He not only changed my tire, but actually took the time to show me how.   Very chill, funny, helpful, good guy; it was like having a buddy come over to help.  Thanks, Marc.

I strongly recommend Mark and the Junebug team!  Very friendly, fairly priced and great service. Mark took the time to show my kids how the truck worked and even let them press the button on the remote to pull the car up on the flatbed. He also called me after delivering the car to the service shop to let me know everything had been taken care of and make sure I didn't have any questions.  Best tow truck experience I have had (and unfortunately, I have had several).

3/11/2015

Amazing service.  He towed my motorcycle to a shop of my choice in the evening and knew the people there, so was able to drop it off securely for me.  I did basically nothing.  Generally he's just a very pleasant person.

1/24/2015

He is not the cheapest in the businessBut Marc is the guy to get it done, especially of you have a vintage or classic car or just want the best for your vehicle.  Your vehicle will be cared for as his own the whole time and his charm and wit are a treat.

4/23/2015

Marc is the man. He's not just a tow truck driver, he's a bonafide motor head. You can't beat a guy that knows the lingo. I called him after I got into a motorcycle wreck and he was there in a flash. I've got nothing but good things to say about him. Rest easy, Marc will take care of you.

Marc is AWESOME!!! My car just died for no reason. It's sitting in my garage and I needed to get it to my dealership for repairs.  I called Marc and he was able to come pick it up within the time he specified.  (he even entertained my lil 18 month old toddler!)He took it to the dealership and even called me to let me know the name of the consultant responsible for my car.  Took my creditcard number on the phone to process payment and even emailed me the receipt so that I can send it into my insurance people.  Marc is a full service super awesome guy.  I would recommend him to anyone else who needs a tow!

I came out from my office and found that my rear tire was flat for no good reasons.  In desperation, I  yelped and called several places that showed up on the yelp listing. Everything was closed!!! Then I got to Marc.  He said he can help me change my flat to my temporary tire.  I told him my bf is coming to help me with that.  I needed to know if he could fix the flat tire.  Instead of saying he doesn't fix flat tires and hang up.  ZHe took the tiime to ask me where I'm located.  Then he thought of who was still open and who's good.  He even gave me directions from my location and gave me the phone number of the other place just in case.Wow.  This is one good soul!!  Thank you!!!
