BEWARE. HIGHWAY ROBBERY.
Absolutely, the most dishonest and unfair road service I've ever dealt with.

The facts: Freezing cold. My truck broke down at the DeKalb, IL Toll Plaza. I needed to be towed 56 miles to my home near Chicago. Northern Illinois Towing quoted $345 to my motor club. The club only covers $125. The $230 difference would be out of pocket! I told my motor club dispatcher to forget it and call another service. They couldn't find anybody else local. It seems the tollway is a racket with only one tow service per x stretch of miles. I was trapped with no alternative so I said send him and I'll try and negotiate a better price or have him drop my car closer to home off the tollway when my $125 allowance expired.
The driver (and company owner) told me it was $80 just to hook up the car plus the tolls and mileage to get to me. So the $125 was basically gone before I got in his cab.
Great. I offered cash if he would reduce his fee. He refused. He also added that if I paid with a credit card, it would be $11 more. I had no recourse but to pay him $238.10 when we arrived at my home. Technically, this is as close to highway robbery as one could get. Legal? Probably. Honest and helpful? Nope.

I filed a complaint with my Motor Club and will, futilely, seek a reimbursement for some of the money. Why pay for a motor club membership if they don't screen the services they offer. Stay away from this unfair gouger. A nightmare.

These folks are great! Someone broke into my car after hours while I was visiting DeKalb, leaving a shattered window on a rainy night. They came out at 9 pm to put a sheet over the window and guide me to their shop. Then they gave me a lift to my hotel. They repaired the window straight away the next morning, and drove out to pick me up again. Not the cheapest, but who could ask for better speed or service? Wonderful people. Highly recommended.

I had a flat on the interstate and my insurance called Northern Illinois Towing I was surprised how quickly they got to me (within 25 minutes). I had been unable to get my old tire off my car. They knew exactly what to do and had the tire changed and had me back on the road within five minutes. I recommend Northern Illinois Towing to anyone who needs wrecker service :)
