Light to Heavy Duty Towing and Recovery Operations


Had the pleasure to haul some equipment to assist in training. This place was really cool.


Employee of the month once again goes to !! We’re very sorry but it wasn’t even close.


Vehicle stuck in park? That’s not a problem with the right equipment. No dragging, damage free, even dropped right in the repair bay.

Basement parking garage, low clearance, tight spot, lost keys. Not a problem with the right equipment.


Ready to go at a moments notice 24 hours a day. 20+ tons of hot asphalt stuck on the side of the highway when it’s 27° outside is very time sensitive.


Much like the rest of the country, we’re experiencing a staff shortage. We apologize if the non-emergency ETA’s are a little longer than usual. We’re doing our best to get to you quickly.

Our service techs are still working on figuring out how to make the trucks fly. Testing seems promising.


Hiring light duty drivers as well


Karas Motors is hiring multiple positions. Light duty and/or heavy duty as well as diesel techs, full time. Applicant must be competent, have a clean driving record, willing to work, good hygiene, punctual, able to lift 50lbs, and pass a drug test (that includes w**d, please don’t waste our time). Experience preferred but might be willing to train the right person. It’s a growing business with nice equipment, you’ll be expected to keep it that way. Apply at 590 Watertown Ave, Waterbury, CT


Happy Mother’s Day to the woman who helped start it all, and to all the great mothers out there, today and everyday.

It may be just a “work truck” to some, but someone else worked hard to buy a new truck and that deserves respect. 15 seconds of extra effort to protect the customers fresh paint. Take pride in the work you do and do it well.

Call us today for any equipment you need moved. It was a pleasure to move this fully restored 1975 Deere. Fired up on 3 turns and sounded stronger than most new tractors. Beautiful machine.


Always a pleasure to help out some of Waterbury’s bravest 🚒🧯

Just because you breakdown, doesn’t mean your day has to stop. We understand you have a schedule, and we’ll do everything in our power to get you back on track. Didn’t even block a gas pump while offloading the tank 👌🏼call us for any of your heavy duty towing needs.

Knowledge is the best tool in any toolbox. Salt water always finds a way in and unfortunately this trailer’s bearing failed in the middle of a busy intersection. With specialized equipment, we were able to get this owners boat home safely and backed into his driveway without any secondary damage. We’re always here when you need us.


We hope everyone was safe during the storm. We’re fully open and ready to provide service. Remember, we also move equipment as well as light, medium, and heavy duty towing.

Today we said goodbye to a long time friend and employee. Lenny O had the gift to make anyone laugh with his quick wit and one liner’s. He was hardworking, caring, willing to help anyone, he just had a heart of gold. Lenny has been apart of the Karas Motors family for over 30 years. We all miss him very much, the shop will never be the same. Rest easy, brother.
