Scott Tucker and Dion Springstead, long-time friends and Bowling Green natives, have launched their own business.
B.G. Towing and Repair, 326 Industrial Parkway, is now open.
The business offers 24-hour towing, full-service auto and truck repair and is a certified NAPA auto and truck care center.
"We do everything from oil changes to rebuilding an engine," Tucker said. "We pretty much do anything people need us to do."
Tucker and Springstead, friends since first grade, have much experience in the automotive industry working at dealerships and service centers. They share numerous certifications between them and both attended Penta Career Center where they studied their trade.
"We have talked about doing this forever and now we finally did it," Tucker said.
"It's the American dream, isn't it? Everyone wants to work for themselves," he continued.
Prior to opening their shop, just off Ohio 25, the pair often did repair work on the side for local residents.
"It was kind of a natural move to go from that to this shop," Springstead said.
What separates B.G. Towing and Repair from its competitors, the co-owners said, is fair pricing, commitment to detail, and a full line of service.
"Our pricing is, what I believe to be, the lowest hourly rate for automotive work," Tucker said.
They also pride themselves on working cars all the way up to semis.
"We are both pretty particular with how we fix things," Springstead added. "We want to make sure we get it right."
Hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment on Saturday.
For an appointment, call (419) 352-2626. For towing services, call (419) 601-3615.
