San Leandro, CA — Peterson Trucks, a division of Peterson Holding Co., has moved its used trucks facility to 2595 Alvarado Street in San Leandro. The San Leandro lot has been the base of operations for Peterson Idealease, the rental and lease arm of Peterson Trucks, for several months. This facility replaces Peterson’s former location off of Highway 880 in Oakland
Steve Sundberg, General Sales Manager for Peterson Trucks, commented on the reasons for the move: “We want to give our customers the opportunity to take full advantage of our range of services. Now, fleet managers can come to a single location, view our used truck inventory as well as our rental and lease vehicles, and make the decision that best fits their business strategy. And the new lot is right around the corner from our International truck dealership, and parts and service center.”
Additionally, Peterson Trucks’ new facility is next door to Peterson Cat’s earthmoving sales and service facility, and is only a few blocks from Peterson Power Systems, which offers generator sales, rentals, and service. “We’re a one-stop shop,” Sundberg explained. “We have virtually any piece of equipment our customers might need, the technicians to fix it, and the parts to maintain it. And on top of that, we have purchase, rental, and lease options to fit a range of business plans.”
Peterson Trucks’ Executive VP and GM, Larry MacDonald elaborated on the advantages of moving Peterson’s Used Truck Center: “We’re now in a position to offer used trucks from our own lease and rental fleet. This means our technicians have been maintaining the vehicles since we acquired them, and it’s in our best interest to keep them in pristine condition. In short, we can assure that our used truck customers are getting a quality product.”
