At your service

Basic Towing, a sister company of North Shore Marine, has extensive experience with ice breaking, launch assistance and specialty hauls. We have beach loading capability and are able to supply heavy lift equipment to load and unload at customers' docks, and at our locations in Escanaba and Menominee, Michigan. We make our facilities available for use with customer-supplied heavy lift equipment as needed.

From our 38 acres of waterfront property in the naturally protected harbor of northern Michigan’s Little Bay de Noc, we service customers ranging from Nova Scotia to the West Coast and all points in between. Our routes cross the Great Lakes, run south to the Gulf of Mexico via the Illinois and Mississipi waterways, and reach the East Coast via the St. Lawrence Seaway or Erie Canal.
