Who is Double T?

Our Crew

Tom Bertagnolli and his son Tommy are the owners of Double T Towing. They started the business March 1, 2002. Tom’s sister, Carol Davis, and her daughter, Tracy handle the dispatching duties 24/7; while brother Don handles daily salvage operations and drives a two-car carrier.

Former drivers Tim Stalbaum, Ed Dougherty, and Greg Garcia joined with Tom and his family members to begin the Double T journey handling Heavy Duty and Light Duty towing, respectively. Ricky Oliver and Karl Collette, two of the areas’ premier towers, joined with Tom in 2003.

Our Story

best-towing-griffith-indianaTom was very fortunate that Art Davis’ Truck City of Gary (Freightliner dealership) provided a base of operation and breakdown tows for Double T in the early years of business operations. In November of 2005, Double T moved into their new facility in Griffith, Indiana near the intersection of I80/94 & Cline (Exit 5). Double T’s facility is a state-of-the-art 7000sq.ft. spilt-face block building, with heated floors, two-story office, paved & secured attached storage lot, and glass & panel bay doors(Bert’s Shell Station circa 1960).

Double T handles a large volume of commercial, truck & engine dealer, police, and private tows each month; we would like to handle your towing needs as well. Tom, his staff and drivers together have a combined 90 years of Heavy Duty Towing & Recovery experience in Northwest Indiana and Chicago Metro Area.

Driver Certification

Our drivers attend towing and recovery seminars, trade shows, and hands-on recovery schools promoted by our State Association (ITWA), our National Association (TRAA), as well as manufacturers who’s wreckers we operate on a daily basis. As a TRAA member our drivers are tested yearly and recognized as a “Nationally Certified” Operator/Tower.
