Our Story

This business began in 1941, as an auto salvage yard, and has evolved thru the years. This year is our family’s 80th anniversary in continuous business.

Although we still buy used autos for recycling and operate as a salvage yard, our main part of the company is the towing services we provide. We operate rollbacks for light-duty towing. Our trucks are inspected annually by the police inspection barracks for top safety and are clean and well maintained.

All of our drivers pass extensive background checks thru HireRight and have clean driving records. Our drivers are well trained in towing and recovery and provide courteous and prompt services.

We are experts in providing towing and recovery services for classic, performance, and low profile vehicles. We use a soft strap tie-down system for all vehicles for damage-free towing.

We tow and provide storage for the Carroll County Sheriff, Westminster State and Frederick State Police barracks. If a customer is ever involved in an accident, the customer can request the officer to call A&D to tow or recover their vehicle from the accident scene.

A&D has provided towing service for AAA since 1980, 41 years and counting! If the customer schedules a tow thru the AAA 800 number, the customer can request our shop (Service Provider number MDX18) as long as the vehicle is broke down or picked up within Carroll & Frederick Counties.

Our business is a long time member of the Towing and Recovery Professionals of Maryland (TRPM) . We are also members of the Maryland Motor Truck Association (MMTA) and NFIB Small Business of Maryland. We have been voted Carroll County’s Best Honorable Mention in 2004, 2010, and 2020 in the Towing Category. We have received numerous awards and recognition from area Fire Departments and from Law Enforcement agencies.
