How do you find a towing company in Gothenburg, Sweden?

I don't know Swedish. I don't know the Swedish word used for towing so I can't even look online (knowing that some businesses don't have much of an online presence).

I don't need a tow now but I will need one soon.

Can anyone point me to a towing company?

towing = bärgning
tow truck = bärgningsbil

I'm guessing Assistancekåren has the largest nationwide network, they also do both emergency towing and planned transports (as I believe the OP is looking for). But I have absolutely no idea what their rates are in comparison to small, local towing companies.

BTW, short-distance towing of one car by another car (maximum 30km/h) is "bogsering" in Swedish.

yellow pages

The Eniro yellow pages will give you a fairly good overview:

BTW, never heard about Viking before, probably bigger in Norway than here.

Quite agree, Assitancekåren and Falck are the business to call...
