TA opens new 24/7/365 service facility


TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands, announced Thursday the opening of a newly built truck service facility at the TA travel center located at I-65, Exit 230, in DeMotte, Ind.

This TA Truck Service location offers four service bays and is open around the clock.

“This is the third Truck Service facility we have built and opened within the last month,” Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters, says. “Now, nearly all of our locations have a truck service facility.”

TA says highly trained ASE- and TIA-certified technicians will service this location, specializing in light-duty repair, brakes, electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections and RoadSquad emergency road call services.

This location increases the total number of truck service facilities in the TA and Petro branded chain to 233.

TravelCenters says the DeMotte location was designed to include a back-up generator to provide power when there is an electrical outage. Additionally, the design includes an outdoor patio and an ample indoor waiting area with TVs.

The TA-Petro annual independent survey of Overdrive magazine readers in late 2012 showed that TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube were “Voted Best” by professional drivers in eight categories, including Best Maintenance Shops, 4:1; Most Competent Technicians, 7:1; Most Trusted to Perform, 10:1; and Most Complete Shops, 8:1.
