History

In 1976 a Columbia Heights Mobil Gas and Service Station’s tow truck broke down. An enterprising painter saw an opportunity, and the first Hooked Up Tow Truck rolled out of that service station.

More than 40 years later Hooked Up Towing is a thriving towing company. It is currently owned and operated by Marty Johnson, the grandson of that enterprising painter from 1976.

Marty is certified auto mechanic with a shop management background running independent auto

repair shops as well as franchise auto repair shops. Starting with a single tow truck to help service one of those shops, just like his grandfather before him, Hooked Up Towing has grown to 7 trucks with plans to add additional ones.

More than just another towing company, Hooked Up Towing is a specialized towing company. From towing classic cars and hot rods to motorcycles, they can help you transport your vehicle.

With the new business office and shop located in Blaine, Hooked Up Towing is poised to better serve the north metro suburbs of Blaine, Coon Rapids, Fridley, Spring Lake Park and surrounding communities.

Marty, his family and his English Bulldog Cash, live in Coon Rapids. Marty and Hooked Up Towing are supporters of Autism awareness.
