PTR opens new east Ontario trailer store

CORNWALL, Ont. — Provincial Trailer Rentals has opened a new dealership near the Ontario-Quebec border.

The company says the partnership with Commercial Truck Repair in Cornwall, Ont. will strengthen the PTR offering in this region, and plays into the company’s stated goal of setting up a national network of authorized dealers.

With its recent acquisition of GE Trailer Fleet Services, formerly known as TIP, a division of GE Capital, Lions Gate Trailers (LGT) of Vancouver and Mississauga-based Provincial Trailer Rentals now have a fleet of 20,000 semi-trailers, 28 business centers, and a range of maintenance programs across Canada, coast to coast.

The company says it’s now the largest trailer rental, leasing and service business in Canada, providing a broad range of equipment types, including highway and city semi-trailer vans, refrigerated and heated vans, flatbeds and container chassis as well as storage vans and containers.
