Congratulations to Jim & Tim Shriner, owners of Broad & James Towing, on their recent acquisition of a Hino 258ALP from McMahon Truck Centers, Columbus and MTC Hino Brand Manager Paul Blackston. They acquired their first Hino from Paul back in June of 2006, a custom painted and equipped Hino with a rollback body reconditioned by McMahon Truck Centers’ Marietta body shop team.

Broad & James now runs 10 Hino rollbacks and 1 Hino wrecker every day –  including that very first 2006 Hino 238 which now has over 500,00 miles.

Jim appreciates Hino’s durability, fuel efficiency and driver friendly operation.  He likes for his trucks to really pop and stick in customer’s minds.  So, he gives full confidence to McMahon Marietta’s paint techs to come up with creative paint schemes of his company school bus yellow and fire engine red colors.

Broad & James is a successful, second generation business offering a complete service offering from towing to automotive repair.  They have won a variety of service awards and are recognized by their piers and customers as one of the premier service providers in Columbus, OH. Broad & James is a long term member of the TRAO and Jim serves on their state board.  You can find out more about Broad & James at
