About Our Towing Company
After growing up in a towing family followed by 25 years of driving heavy truck, starting Silver Rooster Towing was a natural progression for founder Steven Kloosterman.

About Silver Rooster Towing

We’re committed to making towing costs more predictable, and we offer seniors a discount as well. Additionally, we support local charities.
Steven and Kenison Kloosterman are proud owners of Steve’s Hotshot & Pilot Services Ltd. & Silver Rooster Towing. Steven has been helping his father at #7 Auto Plaza since he was a boy. When Steven was just 11 years old, his father often took him out on trucking jobs. With a wealth of experience and a love for the industry that dates back to his childhood, starting his own trucking business was the obvious next step for Steven.
Steven’s family has been in the towing industry for 43 years, and he has a long history of family members being in the safety industry (paramedics, tow truck drivers, police officers, and more). At the age of 18, Steven used to be a full-fledged fireman in Ontario. Steven has over 20 years of trucking experience and established Steve’s Hotshot & Pilot Services in 2004. The valuable experience gained while operating Steve’s Hotshot & Pilot Services and learning on the job as a child has resulted in the establishment of this towing company.
The seed for the name Silver Rooster Towing was sown when Steven saw a 9-ft. rooster for sale at a hardware store, and joked about buying it and stationing it in their front yard.
Although he never did it, Kenison implemented her husband’s plan when she came across a 4-ft. high rooster lawn ornament, which has since adorned their front yard.
Inspired by the incident, Steven and Kenison chose the name Silver Rooster Towing as it is unique and stands out.
