T&R towing and service

Our Approach

Our History

T&R Towing and Service Centers began as Polmanteer's Mobil in the spring of 1972 in the Village of Bath. The family business operated as a service station until 1985 when the first Holmes 440 Wrecker was purchased, moving the Polmanteer family into the towing industry. 1987 saw the purchase of a new red Century Hydraulic Wrecker and red has been the color ever since. 1998 brought the transition from Polmanteer's Mobil to the T&R name, as well as an additional truck to bring the fleet to three. In late 2001, the first heavy duty wrecker was added and 2002 saw the business move from the former Mobil station to its current location on Route 415 in Bath. The new shop and truck allowed T&R to add heavy duty repairs and road service to its lineup of services.

Our Story

Throughout the next several years, business continued to expand in the heavy duty towing and repair lineup - eventually culminating in the opening of a new full service facility in Hornell, NY. Again in 2018, T&R added another location to the towing and service lineup with the addition of the Painted Post (Corning), NY location - formerly Crane's Towing. Shortly thereafter, the Painted Post location was named a Certified International Truck Parts and Warranty Service Dealer.

A state-of-the-art dispatch and transportation management center was built in 2014 and continues to act as the hub of all towing, recovery, road service, and environmental responses using the most up to date fleet management technology. The dispatch center is always fully staffed and operates 24/7, all year long. The end of 2016 brought an expansion beyond Steuben County into Schuyler County with the purchase of the Montour Falls location. T&R was awarded a second international parts and warranty service dealer location with the addition of the Dansville location just off Exit 5 on I-390 (former Bill Carpenter Service, Inc.), bringing the total to 5 locations by the end of 2018.
