The mission of the Towing and Recovery Association is to work to make Georgia the best state in the nation in which to base and operate a towing company. To that end, TRAG seeks to promote:
- Reasonable Laws,
- Even-handed, common-sense administration,
- Equitable and competitive fees and taxes,
- A market, political and social environment favorable to the towing industry, and
- Good citizenship among the people and companies of Georgia’s towing industry.
TRAG serves as your advocate to the lawmakers and regulators that affect our industry.
TRAG is instrumental in assuring that the towing industry perspective is incorporated into pending legislation in Georgia’s state legislature.
TRAG’s legislative agenda targets the association’s lobbying efforts at legislation and regulations that will provide support to vulnerable groups and advance professional practice training and research opportunities for the towing industry.
TRAG works to elect officials that best represent its interests. Your membership with TRAG will help support these vital efforts which will benefit your company as well as the industry as a whole.

TRAG creates a greater awareness of the economic and public service role of the towing industry through:
- Leadership - TRAG produces voluntary leadership, colleagues who actively mobilize you and your peers toward industry-wide action, who chart your industry’s future.
- Organization - TRAG presents one strong, unified voice to the mass media and those special interest groups that try to limit or take away your rights and/or hard-earned accomplishments.
- Outreach - TRAG community outreach programs tell the story of the importance, professionalism and many contributions you make to improve Georgia.

Members receive four issues each year of Tow Tips, which features in-depth coverage of developments in the Georgia Towing industry, political and legislative news, achievements of towing professionals, and a Marketplace classified section.
TRAG promotes the quality and effectiveness of the towing industry. This mission encompasses the maintenance of ethical conduct and fair practices. TRAG can help to review and resolve complaints of ethical violations or unfair practices that could be detrimental to this mission.
