When the need arises for someone to have their vehicle towed, it can sometimes be a dreadful experience. Whether it be due to a disabled vehicle, flat tire, or traffic accident, the inconvenience that accompanies the need is usually what is dreaded and remembered mostly. Fortunately, there is a company that has set their sights on changing the towing and hauling industry.

J & G Towing, LLC , is a small family owned towing company based out of Greensboro, NC. They offer some of the best tow services available within the state of North Carolina. These services include 24 Hour Emergency Towing, Lock Outs, Motorcycle Towing, Roadside Assistance, Battery Jumps, Refueling, Tire Changes, and Winch Out services (up to 150 ft).

J & G Towing, LLC was started up in July 2017. The company is owned and operated 26 year old, Gavin Barner. Originally from Greensboro, NC, Gavin grew up in Charlotte. After graduating from high school in Greensboro, he later attended North Carolina A & T University before deciding to join the work force. He worked for years at a car wash, along with delivering appliances and furniture, before he found himself in the working in the towing industry.

Before starting the company, Gavin shares there were a few hurdles he had to conquer. “I was at a point in life where I was tired of doing a lot of heavy lifting, so when the opportunity presented itself, I didn’t hesitate to jump at it. My uncle, whose namesake represents the (J of J & G Towing, LLC) wanted to start a new business but didn’t have any idea what to do. I was told that towing was a good industry to work in, so we took the risk and bought a truck, and later obtained an LLC and immediately started advertising,” he shares.

As his business began to take off, Gavin shares that he was fortunate to have a few experienced towing professionals mentor and guide J & G Towing along. “Mike at Abracadabra Towing and Rico at EZ Towing & Recovery has been a huge helpt to me. Between these two guys, they keep me on my toes. As I learn and grow in the towing industry, they help me to keep a level head, and assisted in developing me into a firm business man.”

Gavin says what he loves most about what he does is the opportunity to help people get out of stressful situations. He also relishes in the opportunity to represent black businessmen who operate with professionalism. “As black men, we have the ability to do anything that we put our minds to,” he says.

For Gavin, family is his biggest inspiration. “I come from a pretty big family that is rooted in greatness, on both sides. They are all so supportive of anything I do and my goal is to keep making progress with this business and keep making them proud,” he says.

Being a businessman can also be a humbling experience. “I am a firm believer of patience being a virtue, and I never want to bite off more than I can chew. My business is growing at a reasonable pace and I hope that will continue. Moving forward, I will continue to promote the business and strive to become better at my craft. In another year or so I would like to have a second truck and expand my services, and eventually get a tow yard to grow the business into long distance car transporting as well,” he says.
