Our Story: A Legacy of Community Service and Automotive Excellence

Founded in 1969 by Wayne Riley, Wayne's Garage and Towing has evolved from a small transmission repair shop into a pillar of the Southwest Ohio community, renowned for its commitment to quality towing services and community support. Beginning our journey at 1999 Pleasant Ave, Wayne’s quickly became a beacon of automotive repair and towing excellence.

The expansion to 1998 Pleasant Ave in 1984 marked the beginning of our journey towards becoming a full-scale automotive repair center. The introduction of a wrecker to the business in 1977 was our first step into the towing industry, primarily serving vehicles in need of shop services. The turn of the millennium saw us expanding our fleet to include flatbed wreckers to tow today’s cars damage free, further solidifying our commitment to offering a comprehensive suite of towing and recovery services.

With a versatile fleet of equipment ready for any tow or recovery challenge, our capabilities extend from handling passenger cars to fully loaded 18-wheelers with ease. This dynamic growth reflects the tireless commitment and hard work of three generations of the Riley family. Under the leadership of Wayne and his son, Wayne Jr., and with the dedicated support of Wayne Jr.'s wife, Cindy, and their son, Brandon, we stand prepared to meet the needs of our community with unmatched professionalism and care.

At the end of 2022, the decision was made to sell the automotive repair portion of our business to Ryan Pohlman of Pohlman's Tire and Automotive. Ryan and his team are committed to continuing the legacy of exceptional auto repair services at our former location on Pleasant Ave. This move allowed Wayne’s to concentrate exclusively on towing services, relocating our offices and company headquarters to 1946 Fairgrove Ave, Hamilton, OH.

As a locally owned and operated entity, our roots in the community run deep. Our evolution reflects over 50 years of commitment to Southwestern Ohio, underscored by a legacy of quality, reliability, and community service. Wayne's Garage & Towing is not just a business; it's a family legacy and a community institution, now exclusively dedicated to providing top-tier towing services. As we look to the future, our connection to the community we serve remains as strong as ever, three generations strong and counting.
