Eric (34) is the eldest brother with the highest education. He has his eye on increasing profits, improving customer service, and expanding the tow-truck fleet (currently at a whopping 3 trucks) in order to make a push into the huge Toronto market. Secretly, Eric’s come home after botching a transportation company merger in Saskatchewan.
Jon (31) has been working at Bill & Sons Towing since he dropped out of high school in Grade 9. Jon sees himself as the rightful heir to running the family business, and believes Eric has swooped in with his ‘fancy college degree’ to take something that doesn’t belong to him. Highly resistant to change, Jon sees no point in expanding the business or improving customer service.
Tony (30) is the undeniable screw-up of the family. Whether it’s “cleaning out” towed vehicles, or running insurance scams, Tony will do anything to stuff his wallet. Yet for all the trouble he causes, he’s a huge asset as an all-round utility man; he’s a skilled tow driver, mechanic, and locksmith.
Dave (25) is the baby of the family, and quite content with running dispatch for the drivers. With a sweet innocence, Dave often finds himself caught in the middle of arguments, or acting as the peacemaker amongst the group. His one true passion is his self-produced podcast. Little do his brothers know, Dave’s been using his podcast to discuss the highly dysfunctional family dynamic behind Bill & Sons Towing.
Bill Vanderchuck (64) is the head honcho of Bill & Sons Towing and an astute businessman (if you believe that a drawer full of receipts is as solid as any accounting department). For Bill, the money coming through the door has always been pretty good, and that’s always been good enough. It isn’t that he lacks the desire to expand the business; it’s just that life always kept getting in the way. There’s his poor health, and of course, the fact that all four of his boys are from different mothers.
