Colonial Service Station originated in April 1968 by Tom Deangelis Sr, his wife, and partner Terry as well as Tommy Jr., who was age 14 at the time. The business filed as a corporation in 1972 as Terry-Tom-Service, named after the founders who, at the last minute with their attorney found they could not use the “Colonial” since it belonged to another company. Today the company operates under the DBA Colonial Transportation. To this day, Tom Sr, Tom Jr, his wife Barbara and their two sons, David and Michael, continue to own and operate Colonial Transportation. They have been around for three generations and a total of forty-five years. Sadly, Terry is no longer with us.
We love serving Staten Island! Hurricane Sandy tore through our hometown in October 2012, leaving a great deal of destruction in its wake. The Great Kills Park Marina was left covered with piles of debris until May the following year. Tommy and his sons took part of their fleet down to help with the cleanup effort so the boat ramp could re-open in time for the season. They were recognized, along with other participants, by U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm with community service certificates.
