Maxim Truck & Trailer will remain open at all locations across Canada during our normal business hours. As an essential provider, we will continue to sell, lease, rent, and support customers operating transportation equipment while being sensitive to our respective community's needs. Additional safety measures we’ve put in place include: minimizing person-to-person contact; extra emphasis on sanitization including our rental vehicles; and limiting in-person customer visits and interactions.
The following are ways we can help those in the transportation industry during these unprecedented times:
- SMOOTHING CURRENCY FLUCTUATIONS
A $0.75, $0.70 or $0.65 Canadian dollar has major implications for our customers when buying new equipment that generally comes from the US. This is as true for International Trucks as it is for Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth and Volvo trucks. Same goes for Great Dane Trailers and Utility, Wabash and Hyundai trailers. Major currency drops can result in up to a $10,000 jump on a $150,000 factory ordered vehicle – just like that. To mitigate this fluctuation for our customers, Maxim’s network includes a healthy stock of new truck and trailer inventory priced at a more reasonable currency. Our in-stock inventory can shield you from the current volatility of our currency;
- MEETING YOUR SHORT TERM NEEDS
Not ready to buy new until things settle down? We have options that include one of the largest selection of quality used trucks and trailers in Canada. Alternatively, we offer daily, weekly or monthly rentals of trucks and trailers across Canada. In addition, our unique rent-to-own program offers you the flexibility to purchase your rental. We give you choices that best suit your business and the current climate;
- CONVENIENT TO DO BUSINESS WITH
We remain open for business with our usual extended hours for parts and service at our locations across Canada. We understand that breakdowns or repairs don’t always fit into the 9 to 5 time slot. Most of our locations also offer 24 hr. emergency service. As well, our parts can be ordered over the phone or online for your convenience – and delivered to your door.
This is a developing situation. We'll let you know when we have additional updates in the coming days and weeks. Please feel free to reach out to your Maxim Rep if you have any questions. Your business is critical. We are here to support you.
