Greenest Tow Truck Company in Queens

When we read this story of how a tow truck company is going to great lengths to save a tree we had to share it with all our friends of Berrier Insurance.

Tommy Cali owner of Cove Auto Towing in Queens, didn’t have the heart to cut down an in-the-way tree 32 years ago when he converted the enclosed front porch of his 27th Ave. home into an office for his thriving business. Now he has 50-foot tree growing through the middle of his desk.

Cali built the office himself, and may be the greenest building around. “Everything is recycled,” he said proudly. “The marble floor is chippings, stuff they threw out. The windows are from a building they knocked down.”

“You’ve got tons of people that pass by everyday. They stop and take pictures. It’s a family-friendly thing.”Cali was recently offered $2.6 million for his home, he says. But he worries that a buyer would get rid of the tree to develop the property.

A rough patch of ceiling surrounds the tree trunk. “I’ve been cutting and cutting around it,” Cali said. “The tree grew a lot.” “No regrets,” Cali shrugged. “All my customers love it.”

He’s been busy in recent days wrapping the tree in Christmas lights and plans to hang ornaments. “I want to get all the branches,” he said. “We’re gonna do the whole thing all in lights.”

Tow Truck Insurance: Tis the Season for Towing

It’s the first day of December which means that the holiday shopping season is in full swing, poor weather will be moving in, and there will be a lot more people traveling to grandmother’s house. We want to remind both drivers and our tow trucking friends out there to be super careful. If you have a tow truck company, make sure that your tow truck insurance is up to date for the holiday season.

Towing companies are seeing an increase in business as more people fill up mall parking lots, making for fewer parking spaces and more people parking where they aren’t supposed to. There is also an increase in parking lot accidents due to impatient or unmindful drivers trying to navigate the busy state of affairs. Its always a bad situation, no one wants their car towed, but people are more frustrated about getting their car towed during the holidays, so tow companies are more often then not casted as a villain out to make a buck. With winter conditions setting in and more people on the road obviously there are more accidents, so drivers need to remember that tow truck companies are actually there to help.
