Over the past 45 years, Trickey's has been getting to know and helping hundreds of people with their automotive needs. Trickey's Service Inc. began serving the Riverbend area in 1960. In 1966 it continued its growth in service capabilities when Bill and Janet Pullen joined owners Paul and Joyce Trickey. The Pullen's purchased Trickey's 1980 when Paul Trickey retired. Today the business is run by Steve Kainz, the Pullen's son-in-law.
Steve has been in the towing business since he was 17 years old, getting his start as a driver in Chicago, Illinois. Steve moved to Wood River after marrying his wife, Jean. In 1997, Steve took over the family business, a move that came natural to him as he had been working at Trickey's since 1989. Steve took the knowledge from his early years as a driver in Chicago, combined it with the community based business that his father-in-law had begun and continues Trickey's excellent tradition in transportation services today.
In order to continue serving the community with excellent service, we continually seek the latest training and certification in towing and recovery techniques. We are a member of the Professional Towing and Recovery Operators of Illinois (P.T.R.O.I.) and are certified to tow in both Illinois and Missouri. Trickey's is a union shop providing auto maintenance and repair, air conditioning recharging and repair, tires and batteries.
Trickey's has a superb staff, dedicated to helping the public. Trickey's has and will continue to help improve the community, not only through providing top-notch transportation services, but also through making the Riverbend Area a better place to live and work.
