Road Runner Wrecker Service, Inc. (RRWS) was started by David Butcher in 1992. Already a seasoned tow truck driver, David decided he wanted to be in business for himself. He did just that and grew the business from one truck to one of the largest in the Mid-Atlantic region. Today, Road Runner Wrecker Service consists of multiple facilities to include Purcellville, Sterling, and a state-of-the-art Leesburg location currently under construction, expected to open in August 2021. David has kept the business within his family over the years. His wife, Lisa, worked along his side for many years to oversee accounting, administrative duties, sales and operations, among many other things. She is still actively involved in business operations while managing another business full-time. David’s eldest son, Daniel, a graduate from George Mason University, shares his father’s passion for incident management and public safety. David’s eldest daughter, Hannah, recently graduated from Virginia Tech with a major in Business Management and Entrepreneurship and will start working full-time under her father as an Administrative Coordinator, learning the aspects of business and helping with procedural operations. Second daughter, Bailey, has gained extensive experience from her many years of call-taking in the dispatch center. Second son, Dalton, as a young teenager, helps around the facility, learning the ways of towing from a hands-on perspective. And finally, Hayley, the youngest daughter, looks forward to the day she can continue the tradition of working in the family business.
Road Runner Wrecker Service is focused on working with motor clubs for roadside assistance, insurance companies for salvage hauling and secondary towing, municipalities and police agencies for incident handling, construction companies for heavy equipment transport, private property customers for parking enforcement, as well as towing for the general public. With its wide range of services and expertise, Road Runner can tow and/or recover any type and size of vehicle while also performing short and long-distance transportation for vehicles and heavy equipment.
The company motto is “Dedicated, Professional Service”, and its stated mission is to provide quality service from the initial phone call, to its professional and courteous call center, to its innovative dispatching process, to the servicing of the vehicle by trained and knowledgeable drivers, and finally to its streamlined billing system.
