Tow Mater Towing & Salvage is the only known tow truck company in Radiator Springs. It is run by Mater himself. He manages the salvage yard and Municipal Impound Lot. When Lightning McQueen ends up lost in Radiator Springs, and after accidentally breaking up the main road, he is arrested and locked up in the impound lot. Mater then chats amicably with McQueen and unintentionally lets him escape after removing the boot on McQueen's tire.
