About VATRO

THE BENEFITS OF BELONGING TO VATRO

VATRO is the representative voice of the towing professional in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We keep you informed about items of interest that are important to the towing industry. VATRO is managed by elected officers and Board of Directors. Your participation as an active member will strengthen VATRO'S position with State Legislature and Local Government in providing influence and guidance for the positive advancement of the towing industry in Virginia. In 1979, seven Virginia towing operators began an organization for professional towers. The membership has grown from these early beginnings to a trade organization with over 125 voting and associate members. Chapter representation threads to all areas of the state.

 

REPRESENTATION AND LEGISLATION
VATRO provides legislative representation and a watchdog service at the General Assembly for all bills affecting the industry. Your interests are being affected on a local level with the chapters becoming more and more active within your local community legislators.

 

INFORMATION
As a VATRO member, you will receive information to help your business. “Vatro’s Virginia Towman" is our newsletter and bulletin to keep you abreast of what's happening not only in your backyard but also on a statewide level.

 

TRADE SHOW
VATRO has a mini-trade show as part of our annual meeting every year in the fall. We invite various vendors to be a part of this meeting.

 

TRAINING
We are now working in conjunction with the community college system to provide training at all local community colleges according to geographic interest. Not only will we be providing wrecker schools but in addition, effective communication, dispatch etiquette, and driver manners. VATRO is offering a large plethora of schools, times and locations to fit your needs.

 

SCRAP METAL PROGRAM
We all have concerns about ground water contamination and to provide our member with alternatives in disposal of junk autos left at their doorsteps, VATRO has worked in conjunction with local scrap metal recyclers to provide a “whole car” disposal program.

 

GET HOOKED UP WITH DMV 
We are proud to have been pivotal in working with DMV to get you online to obtain your transcripts. We can help you get “hooked up” at the source.
