Our Background

             It all began when Patrick O'Brien left his tour in the Air Force as a mechanic. He had always dreamed of owning his own Auto Repair and Towing shop. In 1982, using his own personal knowledge and determination, DTR Automotive & Towing came to be. DTR started out as a single car garage on River Road in Hackensack, NJ where All American Ford currently stands. Patrick moved to his current location in Closter, NJ in 1984. It is now managed and run by his son, Kyle O'Brien. DTR has been in operation and family owned for over 30 years. They continue to always put their customers first and entrust in family values.
