North East opens Truro location

TRURO, NS – North East Truck and Trailer Sales has officially opened a new facility in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Part of Valley Equipment, the location is an authorized dealer for Utility Trailers, BWS, Lode King, Mac Trailers, Trail King Industries, and others.

“We’ve moved from an old two-bay service facility on two acres of land into a completely modern facility with eight service bays on 6.5 acres of land,” said Andy LeBlanc, general manager. “Our business has been growing and we couldn’t deliver the kind of productive service that we want to provide our customers.”

The new facility is handicap accessible and includes a driver’s waiting area complete with WiFi. A high-pressure wash is also available to clean the trailers. There’s also a 5,000-square foot parts warehouse, 4,200-square-foot parts showroom, and 7,500-square foot service center with four 129-foot drive-through service bays that will hold eight 53-foot trailers.

“Our facility is in a major hub in Nova Scotia,” added LeBlanc. “Visible in all directions, it is at the largest intersection in Nova Scotia on the Trans-Canada Highway. All traffic traveling to and from Newfoundland, New Brunswick and the port city of Halifax travel through here.”

The new facility is located at 83 Hub Centre Drive, Upper Onslow. It is near the TransCanada Highway and Nova Scotia Highway 102, just off Onslow Road
