Kauff’s Transportation Systems in south Florida, was founded in 1969 by brothers, Howard and Richard Kauff, as a light duty towing and recovery provider to motor clubs and local police agencies.
The two brothers, operating out of their service station in Lake Park, quickly understood there was an abundant demand in the community for a high-quality service company that could provide the motoring public and the numerous police, fire, and local municipal governments with peace of mind in their time of need.
In the ‘90s
In the ‘90s as the fleet expanded and became more varied in application and capacities, the Kauff management group recognized the advantages they could provide commercial customers with specialized loading and transportation of permittable oversize equipment and specialized sensitive goods. Over the years, we have transported locally and nationally heavy equipment, aircraft, satellites, motor coaches, exotic autos, and sensitive loads for nationally recognized zoos and game preserves.
During a brief period of consolidation in the towing and recovery industry in the late ‘90’s, Kauff’s was the model for the largest of the consolidators (RoadOne, Inc.). In 2003, Kauff’s was purchased by Geoff Russell, and with the guidance of Richard Kauff, the company returned to the principles and dedication that the company had been founded on in 1969.
