Joe's Towing & Recovery

★★★★★
In 1969, Joe’s Towing & Recovery started as a gas station with one truck operating in the Oakland / Veterans in Bloomington area. After a move to Woodrig and Main, we faded out the gas station service, and in 1980, settled into our current location at 2233 Springfield Road. Our original location was less than1/2 acre with a small office and service bay. In 1992, with the rising needs of our community, we expanded our facilities to include a 30×60 2-story office building and a 70×90 shop.The 90’s were a time of growth at Joe’s Towing & Recovery. We purchased property at 1207 Warriner and moved the storage of impounds towed out of Normal to this new location. In 2006, we added an office to handle releases and parking permits for Illinois State University.In 1998/1999, we acquired 5.5 more acres at 2229 Springfield Rd, bringing our total acreage in Bloomington to 6.5 acres. In 2007 and 2008, we remodeled our office building to update our employee kitchen and meeting room, and added a break room.

Fast and courteous service! Prompt service, they were actually 40 minutes earlier than I was told to expect them. Personally knowing shop employees helped me get my issues resolved in this emergency. I will tell friends to call Joe's, thank you!

So, around 6 this morning, taking my dog out to the FAR EAST side of town for daycare when the car just stops. Husband is out of town, yada yada yada. Being the resourceful gal I am...hop onto my phone, find the number for Joe's and voila. So, about the service; Bruce was there in 8 minutes; super nice! Drives me out to daycare; drives me to the auto repair place; and then home. His shift is ended, this I know from the chit chat. Still super pleasant, polite, and friendly. So- as my first (and hopefully ONLY) towing experience, an A+. This had the potential to be bad, but it turned out well AND, in walking to work- made it on time.

The day my car would not be start I called for a jump start. I called Joe's, the driver was here at the house way before I could believe it. Matt was nice, quick and polite. I was very satisfied with the service and the way he treated me. I have a business card for Matt now and he will be the only tow truck for me. I would tell you all to call JOE'S.

In the snow I slid off the road. The lady that answered the phone at Joe's gave me a sense of understanding and told me she would have a tow truck to me in just a few minutes. Upon arrival the man made me feel at ease with what I had done. He hooked up my car and pulled me out of the ditch. He was very nice to me for what I did. I don't know why any one would have a problem. He was very professional in his demeanor and in the way he handled my car.

This place is the biggest ripoffs!!! It's one thing to get charged for being towed. But to charge you for ""special"" equipment to be used???? WTF is that about and then an extra charge because it's past business hours?? Um hello, you towed the car after business hours!! Bry who answers the phone there, VERY unprofessional!!! She must be the truck driver because she has the mouth of one. This place needs to be closed down and stop making a living off of college kids that are poor!!!!
