    On Call for 70 Years

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of our company, Lakeview Garage Inc. The business was started in 1948 by my grandfather, Nicholas Perone Sr. and is now helmed by his sons Nick Jr and Dave Sr.

    We are a third-generation, family-owned-and-operated towing and full service repair facility covering everything from small cars to large trucks. We’ve been affiliated with AAA since the beginning and today service two AAA clubs as well as a host of commercial, private and government accounts.

    We also offer towing services to a multitude of law enforcement accounts ranging from our local department to the New Jersey State Police.

    It’s been a long road to 70 years, but we have no plans of slowing down.
