Towing Service Changing Ownership...
Herrman’s Towing, Now Bernshausen Automotive Towing
started as a young man in a budding business when the love of the
automobile came into full swing. Growing up on a farm Chuck started
“towing “ vehicles with his John Deere tractor. As Chuck was in high
school and following his graduation from Forman High School he
started towing on a professional basis. Starting out with a model A
tow truck with a hand crank boom (which he still has today) known as
a knuckle buster he towed many of the area residents.
on through the years adding other towing vehicles. Never satisfied
he wanted to add value for his customers, he then added heavy truck
towing and vehicle recovery. With a 1960's era Oshkosh 6x6 and a 50
ton winch you could find him recovering stuck farm tractors or
combines from the areas wet fields. Even as a farmer himself he
would occasionally have to pull himself out. Chuck continued through
the years spending many cold windy nights pulling people out of
ditches or up righting tipped over snow plow trucks.
Now Chuck and
Judy Herrman's towing career has shifted into retirement. Both will
be “recovering” from the hectic 24/7 lifestyle and has passed the
torch of providing outstanding towing service to John and Deb
Bernshausen. Chuck and Judy felt that they (the Bernshausens) would
uphold the integrity of service as they had done for many years.
John and Deb
Bernshausen recently purchased a tow truck flat bed from Chuck and
Judy Herrman. We are excited with the new addition to Bernshausen
Automotive. It will help not only our customers but our community
We have a
dedicated phone number to the tow service which is: (309) 968-6654.
We look forward to giving you the
same good quality service that you have received from Herrman's
Towing over the last several years. Chuck will continue to help
guide us in our new business so you are likely to see him riding
