We went on an adventure to Urbana. This skid steer slid into a lake. Several other companies were asked about the job, and they declined. We took our backhoe and skid steer with winch attachment up and recovered the customer’s skid steer out of the water. It wasn’t easy, but we didn’t quit until the job was done !

We had an opportunity to speak to the Effingham County CEO group this morning. Thanks for having me and I hope you gained some insight on starting a business!

Dustin Salmons, owner of 1st Class Wrecker Service, traveled to Effingham to present to the CEO class. Building his business from the ground up, Dustin prides himself on having great customer service. He shared with the students that one of the main reasons he continues to be successful is because he always answers the calls. To keep up with that promise, he hired one of our students to be his dispatcher for the morning. Talk about hands on experience! Thank you Dustin for your presentation and exciting learning opportunity.

*UPDATE: As of about 7 PM all lanes are open. I can’t thank my friends, family,employees and Illinois State Police enough for this cleanup and recovery. We Couldn’t do it without them.

While it was one man’s misfortune today, We accomplished a task, for the first time, that I only dreamed of doing starting this business 4 years ago

I-57 SB mile marker 181 left lane is closed and will be for several hours for the recovery of a loaded tractor trailer. Thank you for your patience when traveling this area !

Thank you so much Dustin and Brody at 1st class wrecker. My son hit a hit deer last night down by Greenup. The first call I made the guy told me he couldnt tow it last night. I had seen lots of good things about 1st Class Wrecker so I called them. Answered quickly and were very polite. The price was very reasonable too! Great job guys!!!
Someone’s busy in Charleston!
Thanks so much! I even made it to work on time!
Nice work, Dustin Salmons!
