Two Monticello residents with their own businesses have joined forces to add a third firm to their empire.

Jared Valentine has owned Valentine Automotive at 826 Old Route 47 in Monticello since January 2017. It’s a garage where vehicles are repaired.

Corey Levitt owns the Piatt County Collision Center at 1201 Bear Lane., an automotive body shop.

The two of them have created a third business, Assured Towing, next door at 1202 Bear Lane.

With the same customer service and fair pricing that both of first two businesses proudly execute, you can be assured that your towing and recovery needs will be met with the same standards,” Valentine said. “The familiar faces you know and trust will now be there to help meet more of your automotive needs. We will offer 24-hour towing as well as roadside assistance.”

In-town tows start at $75.
