A History of Commercial Tow Truck Insurance

In today’s article I would like to make a small departure from the usual insurance tips about Michigan Tow Truck Insurance and talk a bit about the history of the tow truck and the man who invented it; a classic tale of American ingenuity and enterprise.

Ernest Holmes, Sr. – Inventor of The Tow Truck

Ernest W. Holmes, Sr. was born in January of 1883 in Hobbs Island, Alabama and later lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

At the age of approximately thirty three, one of Ernest’s friends flipped his Model T Ford automobile into a ditch. While helping his friend to free the car, Ernest noted that it required half a dozen men and several cumbersome tools to get the car out of the ditch.

A garage worker at the time, the event inspired Ernest to attach a chain, pulley, and other materials to the back of his own vehicle in order to use the power of one car to pull another.

Over the next couple years Ernest fine-tuned his ideas and designs and on January 17, 1918 he filed his patent. Thus was the first tow truck created.

Those who are especially interested in the history and lore of towing should consider a visit to the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum in Ernest W. Holme’s home town. In addition to restored antique towing vehicles and equipment, such as The Vulcan Cradle Snatcher, it also has various other related toys and memorabilia on display,  The International Towing and Recovery Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of towing and recovery history. Its president is Glenn Thompson.
