Since 1927:

A Legacy of Excellence in Towing & Repairs

Madison Motor Service, established in 1927 as Madison Street Garage, holds a proud legacy as the first towing service in the Tiffin, Ohio, area. Founded by the grandfather of our current owner, our business has evolved over the decades to become a reputable name in the towing and roadside assistance industry. Today, Madison Motor Service is a family-run business dedicated to providing exceptional service to commercial and individual customers alike.

Our Roots and Evolution:

A Family-Run Tradition

For generations, Madison Motor Service has been synonymous with reliability and expertise. Originally founded in Tipton, we moved our operations to Fremont, Ohio, in 1984, becoming an integral part of the local community. Our commitment to quality service remained unwavering, and our family’s hands-on approach was the cornerstone of our success.

In 2020, as the founders retired, a smooth transition became paramount. Today, we hold the original values and commitment to service that the company was founded on, near and dear to our operation. Prioritizing the needs of our customers has been critical to ensuring the legacy of Madison Motor Service continues.

Efficient & Fast

A Fleet and Team to Trust

From our humble beginnings, Madison Motor Service has grown exponentially. In 2023, our fleet boasts 17 trucks, including 6 heavy wreckers and 2 rotators. We serve multiple counties, including Sandusky, Wood, Lucas, and Otto, and cities like Bowling Green, Fremont, Sandusky, Tipton, Clyde, and Woodville.

Our strong relations with local law enforcement, including Sandusky PD, Fremont PD, Helena PD, Ballville PD, and Woodville PD, highlight our commitment to community safety. Staffed 24 hours a day, we ensure rapid response times, maintaining a 100% on-time record with a 30-40 minute ETA.

At Madison Motor Service, we believe in giving back. We actively contribute to food banks across Northwest Ohio, supporting 12 communities, focusing on Fremont, Clyde, Woodville, and Bowling Green.

Experienced Team: The Best in the Business
