MONCTON, N.B. — A New Brunswick Kenworth dealership has added a fifth location with a new facility in Moncton.
The new Bayview Kenworth-Moncton dealership sits on a two-acre site that’s visible and readily accessible from Highway 2, the Trans Canada Highway and the main route that crosses the Maritimes, New Brunswick and the rest of Canada.
“The new Moncton dealership really extends Kenworth’s presence here in New Brunswick,” said Michael Nagle, the Bayview Kenworth dealer principal.
The Moncton facility is in addition to four other Bayview Kenworth locations in the province, which are located at Fredericton, Saint John, St. Stephen, and Sussex. The 10,000-sq. ft. building has six drive-through service bays, more than 1,400 sq. ft. of warehouse space to keep a well-supplied stock of parts for customers, and an additional 500 square feet of room for parts display.
The new location offers Kenworth PremierCare Express Lube, AC, and preventive maintenance services to help truckers get back on the road quickly, and provides a variety of PacLease services, including customized full-service leasing programs and truck rentals for customers in a wide variety of industries. The new location also offers parts delivery into Moncton and the outlying areas, and the service department provides 24-hour emergency service.
“Moncton is located at the crossroads of the Maritimes, so having a new facility here will greatly benefit our customers,” said Art Waddell, vice-president of fixed operations for Bayview Kenworth. “Already, we’ve seen a steady increase in our service department business since the dealership opened earlier this summer (before the recent grand opening). Plus: we’ve had a lot of customers come in and take a look at our inventory of new Kenworth trucks.”
According to Waddell, Bayview Kenworth-Moncton will serve inbound and outbound freight haulers, and companies in the mining and forestry industries. “With our service department open until 11:30 p.m. on weekdays and noon on Saturdays, fleets and owner/operators will be able to get their trucks serviced and back out on the road making money, which is particularly important to truckers and fleets that haul inbound and outbound freight,” he said.
