Business History

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.
